American Data Supply carries Opterna's entire line of fiber optic media converters including the 1100C fiber optic media converter line with ST, SC, MTRJ, and FJ connectors available for several years and is being used in a wide variety of applications in the industrial, educational, and military markets. These converters enable designers to configure a “fiber to the wall” application without the need to locate a fiber wall outlet near a power outlet. Power is supplied through a “Y” cable that enables the converter to draw power from the computer keyboard port. A version of the “Y” cable that enables the converter to be powered from a Sun Workstation keyboard port is also available.

“Our customers have told us they value the convenience of using copper-to-fiber media converters in their fiber networks, because all PC and workstation platforms with a 100BASE-TX port can be supported with one part number, without the need to install a NIC or driver software. The ‘Unplugged’ 100Mb/s converter further enhances the convenience of using Sun Conversion Technologies media converters,” explained Bret Matz, president of Sun Conversion Technologies- now called OPTERNA.

Sun Conversion Technologies (now called Opterna) is a leading supplier of ISO-certified, active and passive optical products for cost-effective, fiber-networking solutions. Sun Conversion Technologies's products include standalone and rack-mount media converters, desktop hubs and switches, network interface cards, optical transceivers and a full line of optical cable assemblies.
