The ComNet CNFE2MCPOE[/M] Ethernet media converter is designed to transmit and receive 10/100 Mbps data over optical fiber through user selectable SFP* modules. These models require the ordering of sold-separately interchangeable SFP modules for fiber type, distance and connectors. The CNFE2MCPOE[/M] transmits and receives a single channel of Ethernet data. It also supports IEEE 802.3at as Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) with up to 30 Watts @ 48 VDC (not supported when installed in ComNet Rack). The electrical interface will Auto-Negotiate to a 10 Mbps, or 100 Mbps Ethernet rate without any adjustments. The optical interface operates at a 100 Mbps Ethernet rate. It is environmentally hardened to operate in extreme conditions.

Features for CNFE2MCPOE Series

  • Electrical ports support Auto-Negotiation for 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, full duplex or half duplex data.
  • PoE Compatible: IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at compliant for PoE and PoE Plus
  • Optical port supports 100 Mbps full duplex data
  • Designed to meet full compliance with the environmental requirements (ambient operating temperature, mechanical shock, vibration, humidity with condensation, high-line/low-line voltage conditions, and transient voltage protection) of NEMA TS-1/TS-2 and the Caltrans Specification for Traffic Signal Control Equipment.
  • IEEE 802.3 compliant
  • Plug-and-play design ensures ease of installation and no electrical or optical adjustments are ever required.
  • Voltage transient protection on all power and signal input/output lines provides protection from power surges and other voltage transient events.
  • Uses customer-installed ComNet SFPs for compatibility with a wide range of optical fibers, optical connector types, and optical transmission distances (SFPs ordered separately).
  • Electric Port Supports Auto-negotiation for Full Duplex or Half Duplex Data Throughput


  • High Speed Computer Links
  • PoE+ operation of any 10/100 Mbps Ethernet-compatible field device where high power consumption is required
