Product Description

SFP transceivers sold separately

The TX2FX-14 is a Ethernet media converter which translates transmission signals from a twisted-pair 10/100/1000BASE-TX to a 100/1000BASE-X fiber optic cable. It expands network data transmission distances beyond the 100 meter limitation of copper wire, to over 10 kilometers by using single-mode fiber optic cable.

Any standard Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceiver module can be used on the fiber optic port. These SFP transceivers modules are available in a variety of transmitter and receiver types, allowing users to select the appropriate module for the required fiber optical interface.

Further the TX2FX-13 provides automatic detection and initializing of the SFP Module (speed and full or half duplex operation) and has easy-to-read diagnostic LEDs for continuous status reports on network speed, traffic, and status of the fiber optic port. The TX2FX-13 allows the use of standard RJ45 UTP/STP and various fiber optic cables.


  • New version with Jumbo Frames support
  • Triple speed (10/100/1000Mbit) copper Ethernet interface
  • Automatic detection and initializing of the SFP module (100Mbit-FX, 1000Mbit-X)
  • Single wide power supply input (5 to 28V)
  • Configurable flow control
  • Configurable link loss forwarding
  • Configurable link speed forwarding
  • 2 different mechanical versions
  • Extended temperature option

These features make the TX2FX-13 ideally suited for any industrial application. Through the low power consumption, robust, and flexible design, the product can be used in any embedded system. Whether it is being used in a rugged, hot, or other extreme environment, the TX2FX helps to expand your network distances!
