10Base2 thin Ethernet convertor to fiber optic...

Dear Automationlist Readers,

I'm looking for a convertor from 10base2 to fiber optic and vice versa. The convertors should be placed in a 19 inch rack which has a redundant 24 V DC power supply.

If anyone could have an idea where to get these things, please send me a reply.

check hirshmann (www.hirschmann.com)
they have e-net to fiber convertors, 24vdc powered, and may have what you want (10B2).

i just remembered black-box also has some of these
devices (www.black-box.com) search their product database for transceivers, or call their tech support; i don't think you can go directly 10B2 to FO, but you'll need a 10B2 to AUI, and AUI to FO arrangment
good luck
You can use either the converter from Black Box or
from Canary.

The Canary model no for 19" Rack mounted converter is CCM-1200 thats very good product that we have been using since past 3 years.
