AMG Systems of the United Kingdom and USA has introduced the AMG260M industrially hardened, ultra-compact fibre optic Gigabit Ethernet media converter. Available as both non-PoE models as well as PoE models with IEEE802.3at 30W or IEEE802.3bt 60/90W PoE or PoE-powered models.

The AMG260M PoE PSE models are suitable for powering the latest high-power requirement PoE IP devices in difficult applications requiring equipment to be industrially hardened and immune from temperature, shock, and vibration. A PoE PD-powered model is also available for installation in locations without any local power.

Designed in the USA and manufactured in the UK

The ultra-compact AMG 260M models are produced in a rugged, thermally efficient enclosure designed to be DIN-Rail, wall mounted, or with an industry-first magnetic mount option. The line is fully hardened and can operate outdoors in suitable IP-rated housing and in extreme temperatures (-40 to +75°C). The addition of integrated smart functionality provides the user with numerous field-selectable intelligent features such as link-fault pass-through, remote device reset, and extended distance mode for the copper cable. The AMG260M series miniature media converters are suited for connecting IP equipment to Ethernet networks that require optical fibre to achieve longer transmission distances. The AMG260M uses a dual-speed 100Mb/1Gb SFP port for connectivity and AMG offers a wide range of SFPs for fibre, connector type, and distance. The AMG260M Series media converters are designed in the USA and UK and manufactured in an ISO9001-certified UK facility, are NEMA approved and are fully TAA and NDAA compliant, and unlike similar products from other Asian countries, can be used in all US Government installations.

"Easily the smallest, most full featured available today"

Steve Clarke, AMG's Managing Director, said, “AMG is known for our innovative approach to product design. With space being at a premium in most installations, the AMG 260M is easily the smallest, most full-featured media converter available today.” “Our unparalleled manufacturing process allows AMG to offer a wide range of transmission products at very cost-effective levels while maintaining ISO9001 quality, the AMG 260M is another example,” Clarke concluded.

Tom Exley, AMG Technical Director adds “The AMG260M continues our quality standard. Our engineering team looked at what was currently available, identified weaknesses, and engineered the AMG260M to overcome those weaknesses. There are dozens of media converters available today. None are equal in terms of this unique ultra-compact size, industrially hardened, with full 90W PoE capability, made in an ISO9001-certified facility, and most importantly, available when you need them. We believe in the quality and stand behind them with lifetime support. This media converter solves the density challenge, allowing the user to utilise more devices in a smaller area. Plus having a product made in the UK gives your network an added layer of security.”
