LINK FAULT PASSTHROUGH (LFP)
The Link Fault Pass-Through (LFPT) is a troubleshooting feature that combines TX and FX LinkLoss from both the local and remote media converters, TX-FX/SFP modules. LFPT is enabled by turning on the DIP switch on both modules. This feature allows either end of the conversion to detect a link fault occurring at the other end of the media conversion chain.
Regardless if there is a break in segment 1, 2 or 3, the link will drop on the switches at both ends. The link fault is passed through the media conversion and is observed at each end. It acts just like it would if the devices were directly connected.
INSTALLING THE CONVERTER
Follow these steps to install the PoE+ Media converter:
- Turn off the power of the device/station in a network to which the Switch will be attached.
- Ensure that there is no activity in the network.
- Install the SFP module.

- NOTE: LFP420, LFP421 are single-strand fiber SFPs, so they must be used in pairs.
- NOTE: Use the LFP416 for a copper interface.
- NOTE: Only the built-in copper interface will do PoE.
- Attach a fiber cable from the Switch to the fiber network.
- Attach a CAT5/5e/6 UTP cable from the 10/100/1000BASE-T network to the RJ-45 port on the switch.
- Connect the 48-VDC power adapter to the switch and verify that the Power LED lights up.
- Turn on the power of the device/station, the TX Link and FX Link LEDs should light when all cables are attached.
Before your installation, we recommended that you check your network environment. If there is an IEEE 802.3at/802.3af device you need to power on, the switch can provide a way to supply power for this Ethernet device conveniently and easily. The Switch equips an AC-DC adapter with 52-VDC input and it injects the DC power into the pin of the twisted pair cable (Pin 1, 2, 3 and 6).
TWISTED-PAIR AND FIBER CABLES
