10G media converter has fiber connection
The FCU-5002 media converter by Aaxeon uses point-to-point fiber connection and is backwards compatible with the FCU-Rack16 Series.
Aaxeon Technologies' 10G media converter, the FCU-5002-SFP+, offers 2 SFP+ ports and supports 3R optical signal regeneration. The media converter provides a point-to-point fiber connection for long distance deployment with a reliable and stable link over 10 Gigabit devices.
The FCU-5002-SFP+ comes with a five year warranty, complies with IEEE 802.3ae 10GBaseR, and is compatible with Aaxeon’s FCU-Rack16 Series. SFP plug and play modules are separate. They can reach up to distances of 40km.
When transmitting long distances, fiber transmission systems can be affected by many factors such as noise, dispersion, crosstalk, etc. The media converter’s 3R signal regeneration relays or regenerates the optical signal that may have been degraded during the transmission, therefore allowing the signal to reach longer distances without instability or degradation.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
