Pair of Fiber to Ethernet Converter Boards for ROV/AUV
10/100/1000M Copper to 1000Base-X Fiber
This order comes with a pair!
This bare PCB converts CAT 5 Ethernet signals from the RJ-45 port to signals compatible with single mode SFP transceivers and vice versa. By using this media converter, copper Ethernet signals can be extended up to 20km depending on the SFP transceiver used (a much larger distance than the 100 meters limit for copper Ethernet signals).
Unlike many other fiber converters, this is designed to be as space efficient as possible specifically for ROV use cases. Additionally, many considerations were in place to design this board as power efficient as possible, reducing generated heat and maximizing the flight time on your ROV!
Input Voltage: 3.5V - 18V DC (Recommended 5V)
Input Connector: 5.5 x 2.5 mm Power Jack or 2.54 mm Pitch Jumper wires

- 2x Fiber to Ethernet Converter Boards
Transmit at Gigabit Speeds!
The fiber converter boards are fully capable of transmitting at gigabit speeds with just one strand of fiber using full duplex transceivers!
Extremely Power Efficient
The fiber converter board is designed with ROV use in mind. The entire board draws just under 1W of power (Tested with 3KM Range Transceivers) even when transmitting gigabit speeds.
This is lower than any other fiber board we tested in the competition. Additionally, due to its highly efficient design, the board itself remains cool even under load.
Small Form Factor
In addition to being power efficient, this Fiber board is designed to be as space efficient as possible without compromising on performance. The entire board is 3 by 2 inches (smaller than the Raspberry Pi!).
