100Base-FX

A 100 Mbps Ethernet standard that uses optical fibers to extend the distance up to 1.2 miles compared to the 100 meter limitation of 100Base-T copper wires. All stations are wired in a star configuration to a repeater or central concentrator using SC, ST or MIC connectors. See Ethernet and 100Base-T.

The availability of 100FX support begins with Vitesse's new Octal PHY, the VSC8658, which is now in production and offers a highly integrated and cost-effective solution for 10/100/1000BASE-T, 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-X applications.
This 100Base-TX to 100Base-FX media converter is a new revision of the J/FE-CF-02 offered previously by Transition.
The device supports 10BASE-FL, 100BASE-SX, and 100BASE-FX Ethernet standards on the fiber side and 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX Ethernet standards on the copper side.
The new L2+ stackable 24-port switch, ES3526Y, brings power, security and flexibility with 24 10/100 ports and two slots for optional fiber and Gigabit uplink modules; available in 1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-SX (SC), 1000BASE-LX (SC), 1000BASE-X (GBIC) and 100BASE-FX (SC, MMF and SMF).
Hardened for harsh temperatures, the TC3705 fiber-optic Ethernet switch provides four 10/ 100Mbps autosensing UTP ports and one fiberoptic 100Base-FX port.
The fiber optic interface includes an optical quantizer on the input and direct drive LED at the output to support small form factor (SFF), low cost, miniature components for 850nm 10BASE-FL and 100BASE-SX designs or 1300nm 100BASE-FX fiber implementations.
The Access Converter/3 series aggregates multiple 10/100 Ethernet devices into 100Base-FX multi-mode or single-mode fiber, extending transmission distances up to 80 Km.
