EL8000 Series - Hardened 1000BASE-TX to 1000BASE-SX/LX/BX/SFP Media Converter


The EL8000 Series provides media conversion between 1000BASE-TX and 1000BASE-SX/LX/BX/SFP Fiber. Built specifically for mission critical applications in harsh environments, the EL8000’s hardened design features high shock & vibration resistance, electrical noise immunity, wide operating temperature range from -40 to 75°C, and thermal dissipation optimized aluminum mechanical design. With redundant power inputs, link down alarming, Link-Fault-Pass-Through and a wide range of fiber connectivity options, the EL8000 is the ideal media converter for environments where connectivity is crucial.


  • Full Gigabit bandwidth and Jumbo frames
    • 1000BASE-T and 1000BASE-SX/LX/BX/SFP Ethernet transmission conversion
    • 1000Mbps Full duplex and full wire-speed forwarding rate
    • Jumbo frames up to 10K bytes to increase throughput and transmission efficiency
  • Port Failure Alarm
    • Relay alarm configured by DIP switch to notify users when power fails or link is down
  • Hardened Grade
    • Supports -40 to 75°C (-40 to 167°F) operating temperature
    • Redundant power inputs on terminal block connector
    • Supports DIN-Rail mounting
  • Link-Fault-Pass-Through (LFPT)
    • Provides constant monitoring of the links connected to the media converters
    • If a copper link fails, the media converter will pass the fail state on throughout the link, disabling the fiber link and the copper link on the opposite end
