Planet 15-Slot Media Converter Chassis (AC Power)

The MC-1500R Converter Chassis supports the optional hot swappable Redundant Power System (RPS) to ensure continuous operation. The MC-1500R is equipped with one 100 to 240V AC power supply unit and one 48V DC power supply unit which, come in the package. To enhance the reliability, one spare power supply slot is supplied for that optional purpose. The continuous power systems are specifically designed to meet the demands for high tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity available. 

The MC-1500R offers flexibility in installation and cost effective scalable solution. With an independent power supply on each slot of the MC-1500R, any converter is hot swappable without causing an interruption to other converters. The media converters and power modules can be plugged in and played anytime. Each bay of the media converter chassis can be populated with any of Planet’s media converter series, the FT, GT, VC-20x and ICS, to provide media conversion between fibre optic, phone wire and serial to copper lines.
