The 100/1000BASE-T1 Media Converter with the Rosenberger H-MTD connector realizes a full-duplex physical-layer conversion between 1000BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet), or 100BASE-T1 and 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet) networks. Communication speed and master/slave settings can be auto-negotiated with a link partner or set manually by the user. A USB port (VCP) can be used to read device status and port diagnostic. The device can also be used as a USB-CAN(/FD) interface. Fast/Gigabit Automotive Ethernet to Standard Ethernet converter with advanced features.
The product variant with TE MATEnet connector is also available.

The media converter offers advanced features such as frame generator, cable diagnostic, as well as a possibility to be used as a USB to CAN(/FD) interface simultaneously with the media conversion function.
An open communication protocol over USB or CAN(/FD), which allows to read status information and configure port parameters, enables to easily integrate the converter into any system. The user can programmatically configure the device. A free-of-charge PC application is available to visualise the device’s status, configure its parameters and use the advanced functions.
The media converter is an ideal tool for connecting a 100BASE-T1 or 1000BASE-T1 ECU into a computer or a laptop. The in-built status LEDs and dip switches allow to easily use the converter without a PC.
