Bosch Fiber Optic Media Converters

Key Features


Utilizes Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules
Multi-mode and single-mode modules available
Supports distances up to 20 km (12.4 miles)
Surface mount or rack mount capability



The Bosch fiber optic Media Converter series are designed to transmit 10/100 Mbps Ethernet signals over fiber optic cable using Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules. These fiber optic media converter devices can be used to transmit Ethernet data well beyond the 100 m limit of copper-based media and provides a secure, EMI/RFI free transmission path.

The media converter units are designed to accept 10/100 Mbps SFP modules. The SFP modules are ordered separately to meet user requirements for mode type, distance and type of optical connector. Available offerings include multi-mode fiber (MMF) or single-mode fiber (SMF) models with a single SC connector or dual-fiber with an LC connector.

System overview


The VG4-SFPSCKT is a unique media converter module for use with VG4 series AutoDomes incorporating the Ethernet (TCP/IP) Communications Module, as well as with MIC Series 550, 550IR, and 612 cameras. This media converter module is designed to accept any of the 10/100 Mbps SFP modules described below.

The media converter module along with the SFP module is user installed directly into the power supply box of the AutoDome camera or of the MIC camera to provide an integrated fiber optic solution. Refer to the Installation Guide that accompanies the VG4-SFPSCKT for detailed installation instructions.


The CNFE2MC/IN is a media converter device designed to transmit and receive 10/100 Mbps Ethernet data over optical fiber using SFP modules. This head-end device is supplied in an enclosure that can be surface mounted or rack mounted using the optional C1-IN rack mount card cage. The unit does not require infield adjustments, and provides automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover.

SFP Modules

The selection of Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules provides the fast Ethernet optical interface when using the VG4-SFPSCKT or the CNFE2MC/IN media converters. These interchangeable SFP module are available for use with MMF or SMF optical fiber. The optical fiber SFP modules are available as one and two fiber versions. They also are available with LC or SC optical connectors.

The VG4-SFPSCKT and CNFE2MC/IN media converters accept the following SFP modules:


Module Fiber Type Optical Interface
SFP-2 MMF Duplex LC
SFP-3 SMF Duplex LC
SFP-25 MMF Single SC
SFP26 MMF Single SC


The SFP-25/SFP-26 modules are counterparts; if you use one in the VG4-SFPSCKT module, then you must use the other in the CNFE2MC/IN head-end unit. Refer to the chart below for the acceptable combinations. Compatibility Chart


If this SFP module is used with the VG4-SFPSCKT Then this SFP module must be used in the CNFE2MC/IN
SFP-25 SFP-26
SFP-26 SFP-25


C1-IN Rack Mount Card Cage

The C1-IN rack mount card cage is designed to hold a maximum of 14 CNFE2MC/IN modules. The C1-IN card cage utilizes an integral, yet field replaceable universal power supply suitable for 120 VAC to 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz operation.

The C1-IN unit includes automatic self-resetting current overload protection, so a fault in any one module will not cause the entire card cage to shut down.

C1-BP Closure Panel

The C1-BP is a closure panel for the C1-IN rack mount card cage, providing coverage for one rack slot.

Fiber Compatibility  
Optical Fiber Compatibility, SMF 8–10/125 µm SMF. Must meet or exceed fiber standard ITU-T G.652.
Optical Distance Specifications Specified transmission distances are limited to the optical loss of the fiber and any additional loss introduced by connectors, splices, and patch panels. The modules are designed to operate over the entire optical loss budget range, so they do not require a minimum loss in order to operate.
MTBF > 100,000 hours
Operating Temperature -40 °C to +50 °C(-40 °F to +122 °F)
