The IE-iMcV-ModeConverter is an SNMP manageable module that allows network operators to incorporate multiple fiber types and wavelengths within a network. It installs in the modular, SNMP-manageable iMediaChassis series and in the unmanaged MediaChassis series.

The IE-iMcV-ModeConverters are protocol-independent with dual SFP ports which can provide a single conversion between different wavelengths or single-mode and multimode fiber, single-mode to single-mode fiber or multimode to single-strand single-mode fiber. The IE-iMcVModeConverter modules support a variety of user configurable features such as LinkLoss and variable speed SFPs. Additionally, since the IE-iMcV-ModeConverter is an Industrial Equipment device (IE), the unit operates in environments that demand extended operating temperatures.

The hot-swappable nature of the SFPs and the numerous fiber modes and types that are available allow for easy configuration and future upgrading as network demands evolve. The IE-iMcV-ModeConverter requires two MSA compliant fiber optic SFP modules (sold seperately) to operate. IMC Networks offers a full range of compatible SFPs.

Data Sheet

Cost-effective and flexible

  • Interchangeable SFP modules allow for multiple fiber mode/type conversion options (single-mode, multi-mode, single-strand fiber, long haul, short haul, etc.)
  • Extended operating temperatures
  • DDMI enabled SFPs support SNMP when installed in a compatible managed chassis
  • Modular, hot-swappable architecture reduces operational costs associated with product installation, upgrades and maintenance


  • Supports a full range of SFP Modules offering various transmission speeds, from 10 Mbps up to 2.4 Gbps*

Maximizes network uptime

  • Modules are hot-swappable; no need to power-down chassis when upgrading or troubleshooting a single module
  • User selectable FX LinkLoss enables the operator to identify a cable fault/failure to isolate the fault to the specific fiber that has fail


  • Includes two SFP ports
  • Protocol-independent operation
  • Converts between dissimilar fiber modes and wavelengths
  • Includes diagnostic LEDs
  • Hot-swappable architecture
  • Modular Form Factor
  • Extended temperature range from -40° to +185° C
  • Compatible with IMC Networks’ SFPs and all standard MSA compliant SFP transceivers
  • In this example, both single-mode and multi-mode fiber are deployed with the IE-iMcV-ModeConverter conveniently and seamlessly located at the origin and destination. The extended temperature range is ideal for the manufacturing location, housed in the unmanaged MediaChassis/1 converting between single-mode and multi-mode fiber for transmission at a distance to another IE-iMcV-ModeConverter, housed in a SNMP-managed iMediachassis/20 along with other modules.
