The Perle SR-1110-SFP DIN Rail Media Converter transparently connects UTP copper to fiber. A pluggable fiber optics port allows for flexible network configurations using SFP transceivers supplied by Perle, Cisco or other manufacturers of MSA compliant SFPs. This rate converting Media Converter provides an economical path to:
• extend the life of non-fiber based equipment by enabling data transmission from 10/100/1000Base-T devices over gigabit fiber
• extend the distance of an existing network by linking CAT5/6/7 cabling to multimode or single mode fiber
• extend the distance between two copper-based devices or networks
• protect Ethernet data from EMI noise and interference by inter-connecting your copper-Ethernet devices over fiber in industrial plants.
An SR-1110-SFP Media Converter is also available with support for -40C to +75C (-40F to +167F) extended operating temperatures.
Network Administrators can rest assured with Perle’s advanced features such as Auto-Negotiation, Auto-MDIX, Link Pass-Through, Far End Fault, and Pause which make the end to end link completely transparent. This allows for more efficient troubleshooting and less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving features, along with a lifetime warranty and free worldwide technical support, make the SR-1110-SFP Rate Converting Media Converter the smart choice for IT professionals.

Power / TST This green LED is turned on when power is applied to the media converter. Otherwise it is off. The LED will blink fast/slow when in Loopback test mode or hardware error.
Fiber link on / Receive activity (LKF) On: Fiber link present. Blinking slowly: Fiber link disabled because of copper link loss. Blinking quickly: Fiber link present and receiving data. Off: No fiber link present
Copper link on / Receive activity (LKC) On: Fiber link present. Blinking slowly: Fiber link disabled because of copper link loss. Blinking quickly: Fiber link present and receiving data. Off: No fiber link present
Link Pass-Through (LKP) On: Copper link is present. Blinking slowly: Copper link disabled because of fiber link loss. Blinking quickly: Copper link present and receiving data. Off: No copper link present
10/100/1000 Copper Speed (SP) Green: 1000 Mbps, Yellow: 100 Mbps, Off: 10 Mbps
Copper Link Activity (LK) On: Copper link is present, Blinking quickly: Copper link receiving data
Switches – accessible by sliding the chassis open
Auto-Negotiation Auto (Deafault-Up): In this mode of operation the media converter will negotiate Ethernet parameters on both the copper and the fiber connection. This will ensure the most optimal connection parameters will be in effect. If connecting to another Perle Gigabit Media Converter, this parameter should be set to Auto.
Off: Copper Negotiation should only be turned off, if the copper link partner does not support copper link negotiations.
SGMII 100/1000 (Default-Up): In this mode, the fiber characteristics will depend on the SFP inserted.
Smart Link Pass-Through
Smart Link Pass-Through (Default-Up): In this mode, the link state on one connection is directly reflected through the media converter to the other connection. If link is lost on one of the connections, then the other link will be brought down by the media converter. If the installation has a media converter on both ends of the fiber link and both are setup for Smart Link Pass-Through, then a loss of copper link on the far end device will propagate through both media converters and will result in a loss of link at the near end device. This would, therefore, resemble a direct copper connection.
Standard Mode (Dwon): In this mode the links on the fiber and copper sides can be brought up and down independently of each other. A loss of link on either the fiber link or copper link can take place without affecting the other connection.
Loopback Disabled (Default-Up): The loopback feature is disabled. This is the normal position for regular operation. The switch must be set to this position for data to pass through the media converter.
Enabled: This is a test mode. All data received on the receive (RX) fiber connection is looped back to the transmit (TX) fiber connection. The state of the copper is not relevant and no data or link status is passed through to the copper side.
Fiber Fault Alert Enabled (Default-Up): In this mode, when Fiber negotiation is turned on, if the media converter detects a loss of fiber signal on the fiber receiver it will immediately disable its fiber transmitter signal. This notifies the fiber link partner that an error condition exists on the fiber connection. If the remote media converter is set up for FFA Enabled and the local media converter is set up with Smart Link Pass-Through, a loss of fiber link on either the transmit or receive line will be passed through to the local copper connection to notify the connected device. If the media converter has been set to Smart Link Pass-Through mode, the effect will be the same as FFA since the link loss on the fiber receiver will result in bringing down the copper link, which will in turn cause the transmit fiber link to be brought down.
Disabled: In this mode, the media converter will not monitor for fiber fault.
Duplex Mode Full (Default-Up): In this mode, when Auto Negotiation is set to off, the media converter will be set to Full Duplex mode.
Half: The media converter will be set to Half Duplex mode
Copper Speed 100 (Default-Up): In this mode, when Auto Neg (copper) is set to off, the media converter will use this switch setting for its Ethernet copper speed connection.The media converter will force the speed to 100 Mbps.
10: The media converter will force the speed to 10 Mbps
Fiber Negotiation (Gigabit SFP) Auto (Default-Up): The Media Converter will negotiate Ethernet parameters on the fiber connection. This will ensure that the most optimal connection parameters will be in effect. If connecting to another Perle Media Converter, this parameter should be set to Auto. The Media Converter Module will advertise 1000Mbps, Full and Half Duplex, no Pause.
Off: The Media Converter Module’s fiber will be fixed to 1000Mbps, Full Duplex.
