ADAM-6541 User Manualiv Declaration of Conformity CEThis product has passed the CE test for environmental specifications when shielded cables are used for ex ternal wiring. We recommend the use of shielded cables. This kind of cable is available from Advantech. Please contact your local supplier for ordering information. CEThis product has passed the CE test for environmental specifications. Test conditions for passing included the equipment being operated within an industrial enclosure. In order to pr otect the product from being damaged by ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) an d EMI leakage, we strongly recom- mend the use of CE-compliant industrial enclosure products. FCC Class A Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environ- ment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in acco rdance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interferen ce to radio communications. Opera- tion of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful inter- ference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense. Safety Precaution – Static Electricity Follow these simple precautions to pr otect yourself from harm and the products from damage. 1.To avoid electrical sh ock, always disconnect the power from your PC chassis before you work on it. Don’t touch any components on the CPU card or other cards while the PC is on. Disconnect power before making any configuration changes. The sudden rush of power as you connect a jump er or install a card may damage sen- sitive electronic components.

ADAM-6541 User Manual2 Chapter 1 Overview1.1 IntroductionThe ADAM-6541 is an industrial gr ade converter designed to convert Ethernet network (10/100Base-TX) to fiber network (100Base-FX). It transparently converts Et hernet signals into optic signals. The advantages of Fiber optic are wide bandwidth, anti-EMI and suitable for long-dis- tance transmission. Theref ore, ADAM-6541 is an id eal solution for fifiber to buildingfl application in central offices or local sites. The ADAM-6541 can be mounted in the following three ways: DIN Rail, panel, piggyback mounting. +10~30 V DC operating voltages are also sup- plied over the terminal block. In addition, the operating temperature ranges from -10 ~ 65° C. The abov e functions make the ADAM-6541 a stable and reliable indus trial grade converter. High-Speed Transmissions The ADAM-6541 supports MDI/MDI-X of auto detection. You will not need to crossover. A swit ch controller that can automatically sense trans- mission speed (10/100 Mbps) will be included. Both Ethernet and fiber ports have memory buffers that sup port store-and-forward mechanism; it assures proper data transmission. Flexible Mounting The ADAM-6541 is extremely compact and can be mounted in three dif- ferent ways: DIN rail, panel and piggyback mounting. Easy Troubleshooting The ADAM-6541 provides three LED indicators: Power, Full/Link, 10/ 100Mbps, which easily let you troubleshoot. Robust Enough for In dustrial Environments The ADAM-6541 can normally work from -10° C to 65° C and accepts wide unregulated voltage range from +10 ~ 30 VDC. Besides, it also pro- vides 3,000 VDC surge protection (EFT) to protect it from over-voltage damages. It is suitable for any harsh operating environment.
