Media converters are a great solution to switch from copper to fiber

Media Converters

We know you’ve been thinking about updating your copper cable setup to a faster fiber optic cable network. Media converters are a great way to get the job done. You can run your existing copper wire into a converter, such as our 1000Base SX/LX/LH media converter with LC/RJ45 connectors that supports both singlemode and multimode fiber, and run your fiber back out the other end of the converter to your fiber products. We have two Mini GBIC modules that are required for this particular converter to function properly: SFP Transceiver, Multimode, 550M 1000BASE-SX, LC Connector, Cisco Compatible and SFP Transceiver, Single Mode, 10KM 1000BASE-LX, LC Connector, Cisco Compatible. This will not give you the highest capabilities of the fiber cable, but it will boost your signal. In order to get the most out of your fiber cable, you’ll need to use fiber the whole way to help minimize the dbl (data byte loss).

A great way to organize cables

Fiber Cable Wrap

Fiber cables can turn into a real mess, not to mention a safety hazard, if they are not properly organized. Hook and loop cable ties can help you keep those cables out of your way, whether you mount them to the wall or just need a way to hold them all in place. All of Fiber Savvy’s hook and loop fiber cable ties are made with soft hold technology so they will not cut into the cable jacket or damage the cable in any way. They are available in a variety of colors and sizes to fit just about any application you would need them for.

NEMA Wall Mount Cabinets

If you are looking for a way to protect your fiber from the elements of mother nature, NEMA rated fiber wall mount enclosures are the way to go. The NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) has created a variety of ratings assigned to fiber wall mount enclosures according to the amount of protection the enclosure offers. For instance, a NEMA 4 enclosure are made for both indoor and outdoor use and provide a degree of protection against falling dirt, rain, sleet, snow, windblown dust, splashing water, hose-directed water and the external formation of ice. A NEMA 4X enclosure offers all of the features previously listed and adds protection against corrosion. There are a total of 15 different NEMA ratings for enclosures, so be sure to choose the correctly rated enclosure for the job!
