The E-TBT-FRL-N-02(ST) is a PCI powered media converter that provides an interface between 10Base-T ports and 10Base-FL ports, allowing users to integrate fiber optic cabling into 10Base-T copper desktop environments. Designed to deliver low cost fiber connectivity to the desktop by installing directly inside a workstation or file server and connecting externally to the factory copper NIC port. The device mounts and draws it power from any standard PCI slot, providing secure fiber connectivity that requires no configuration, and does not consume any CPU utilization.
