Canary CFT-2061 Believe Fiber Connection is not good?

Have powered off and back on both Canary CFT-2061 devices at both locations. I have multi (orange) fiber cable at both ends. The FD is set to Auto; LFS is OFF. When I plug in RJ45 Cat5 the TX lights Link, Act, and LFS are on. The only activity I seem to get is from the Cat5 or TX Connection. The FX (I believe is Fiber) connection has no lights. The only thing that has happened is both devices were powered off prior to a scheduled power swap for the company where the power company changed over our company to a new power connection. The entire power was cut from our company but only after I had all network devices powered off. No UPS devices were on either so no chance of power could be sent to any network devices. Does it sound as if my devices have gone bad or is it the cable? Thanks for your assistance.

You should describe your problem with a little more detail!
If you search on the web, you find some posts, that they do not have drivers and that this device does not work on WinXP, Vista or 7 without drivers. It is said that it works on LINUX. So what do you use? Do you have drivers installed for it?
What do you mean by 150m in your question. A ethernet-network may noot be longer than 90m + 6m +4m from device to device. If you need to brifge 150m you need a repeater or, even better, use a fiber-connection.

What is the functio of dmc300m converter


Generally these media converters are used to translate a signal from an incoming fiber connection to a normal data type connection using an RJ45 data port connector so that the fiber signal can be used with routers in a computer network. There are probably several small round connectors on one side and a normal data port connector on the other with a place for a power cord.

Some businesses and organizations use a fiber type wire for higher speed data transfer than normal cable or telephone lines can provide.

I hope that you found this explanation helpful.

Power surge, TV will not turn on


Power surges are extremely unpredictable, they can damage everything inside the tv, from the power supply printed circuit board, to the main printed circuit board. Normally the power supply takes alot of the damage from these things, so check over the power supply for any damaged components, any burnt out parts on printed circuit board, and also check the fuse. Good luck.

What connection do I use for audio out from my built in dvd player to my receiver. Get sound out from tv channels to receiver with coax cable.


It varies from one device to another, however the most common are RCA cables and optic fiber. You need to check which your device uses.

Denon AVR-4802 multi-zone problem.


I had the same questions and still can't believe there isn't more information on the topic. It's crazy how much marketing Denon devotes to their Multi-Zone features yet offers very little reference materials on the actual set up. I guess most customers don't use the fearture? Here you go:

-The Multi-Zone on the Denon 4802 is analog only. If you are running digital coax or fiber you will have to run a second line that's analog (eg RCA red/white) from the source to the Denon in order for the signal to to make it to the Zone 2 speakers (regardless if it's Pre-Amp out or direct connect to the Zone 2 speakers from the multi/SB speaker outs. Regarding the Harmony question, I had the same problem with my Harmony 880 and wasn't able to find an answer after multiple searches. Luckily I figured it out when I deleted the receiver from the Logitec device list and started over. Connect the remote to your computer, launch the Logitec Harmony Remote Software, click the Devices tab, hit the Add Device, pick the device type & manufacturer from the drop down list, enter "AVR-4802" under Model and finally hit the Next button in the lower right corner of the UI. The next page solves the Harmony Zone 2 control problem. You will see a message "To use your device in additional zones/rooms, click the checkbox...." Make sure Room 2 is checked (mine was not), update the remote and you're done. The Harmony Device menu you will now contain a second receiver icon called "receiver 2." Hit "device" on the Harmony, choose "receiver 2" and you will gain control over Zone 2 including volume.

Good luck!

Canary CFT-2062 connection diagram


I tried to answer this for you yesterday but FixYa didn't put it through I guess. I'll try again.

That device is a "Industrial Media Converter". It is for converting a 100BASE-TX LAN cable into a 100BASE-F fiber optic cable for long-range networking. (2km) There are two ways to use it.

One:
Get two and convert LAN to fiber, then back to LAN.

Two:
Use it to tap into an existing fiber network, like fiber optic Internet.

For the first case; you will need some "Duplex" "multi-mode" fiber optic cable ($1.10 a meter) and an other one of those devices ($50~$300).

For the second case you will also need some fiber optic cable and you will need a network to tap in to. Of course you will need to clear everything with the company that owns that network before you can do any thing. And that’s assuming that they even use the same system level protocols.

To directly answer your question:

1: Hook the 100BASE-TX LAN port up to a PC, Hub, or a switch.

2: Hook up TWO multi-mode fiber optic cables to the device using CT style connecters. Hook one to the TX and one to the RX connectors on the unit.

3: Run the cable how you see fit.

4: Hook the other end up to the interfacing device. Be it joining it to an other cable in an existing network, or to another of those devices.

Note: The TX cable of one device goes to the RX of the other and visa-versa.

-Charlie

P.S. I also have one exactly like that one that I’m trying to find a use for.

Zoul,

GE-1000SX stands for Gigabit short haul Multi-Mode fiber That's the SX part. This is a full duplex MMF (multi-Mode Fiber) short haul (SX) connection. It can only connect to another MMF SX enabled device. This is generally used as an uplink between switches or for a high speed connection to a server.

In short if the GE-1000SX duplex pair isn't attached to a similar interface at the other end there will be no connectivity. If you're trying to connect 100FX (100 Mb Fiber) it won't work.

Hope this helps.
