Fiber optic ethernet converter set

Our 7894 – Fiber-optic ethernet converter set offers a shielded-room feedthrough for high-speed RS232C/Ethernet/UTP communication links. The fiber-optic ethernet converter set is used to convert a RS232C/10/100 Base-T signal to a RS232C/10/100 optical signal, so you can use your internet connection or for example your videocamera connection inside or outside the Faraday cage while maintaining over 140 dB of room attenuation.

The set consists of two shielded fiber-optic converters, waveguide passage and 5 meters of fiber-optic cable.

An optical fiber guiding light (high frequency) does not guide magnetic and electric waves. So signals from within the cage are not transported to the outside of the cage, or vice versa, because the optical fiber does not function as an antenna.

Feedthrough set for shielded rooms and Faraday cages
Feedthrough set for shielded rooms and Faraday cages. The unit outside the Faraday cage is connected with the unit inside the Faraday cage through a waveguide with an optical fiber.


  • The transmission of optical signals can be done through a single fiber since this allows for twice as much data transmission compared with a twin fiber type.
  • Auto negotiation function allows UTP port to auto select 10 M or 100 M and Full Duplex or Half Duplex.
  • UTP port supports MDI/MDI-X auto crossover
  • Supporting flow control
  • Supporting 1552 Byte packet
  • Built-in protection against lightning can prevent great damage to the converter caused by the induction of a lightning stroke.
