The Mini Media Converter Chassis is a 19” rack mountable powered chassis for the Mini line of stand-alone media converters. Designed for Lantronix’ line of office grade, non-hardened, mini media converters, this chassis is ideal for installations where multiple Minis are being deployed in the same location. It offers an easy and cost-effective method for securely mounting up to 18 Mini converters while requiring only one AC power connection.

As networks grow, so does the need to interface between various types of cabling infrastructure and the Mini copper-to-fiber media converters offer a low cost, space saving option for making those connections between disparate cable types. The Mini Media Converter Chassis is suitable for Enterprise, or any Government, application where multiple points of fiber connectivity are required. The chassis can accept any combination of Lantronix’ Layer 1 100Base and 1000Base Mini media converters as well as the Layer 2 10/100 and 10/100/1000 Mini media converters, all with the barrel-type DC power input connector. The chassis occupies 1.5U of rack space, allowing two chassis to be mounted in 3 units of rack space, efficiently using critical rack space in datacenters or wiring closets. The mini converters are hot-swappable and directly connect to the chassis backplane to receive their power connection. Three lock-down bars can be raised and lowered to allow the installation of a hot-swappable mini converter. These bars are also used to securely hold the Mini converter in the chassis, even when the copper and fiber data cables are being inserted and removed from the individual Mini converters.
