Question about Canary (CFT-2062) Transceiver
I have Canary CFT-2062 transciever with out user manual, could you help me in showing the connection diagram with two swtiches or provide me a user manual? Thanks.
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.
Get two and convert LAN to fiber, then back to LAN.
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.
P.S. I also have one exactly like that one that I’m trying to find a use for.
