Description

The EC100FXST is a 100Base-FX fibre Network Adapter, designed to plug into notebook or desktop computers equipped with an ExpressCard slot. Part of the EC100FX Series, model EC100FXSC provides ST type connectors.

All models in Alloy's EC100FX Series provide fibre optic link capability for notebooks to connect to fibre networks at 100Mbps data rate over fibre optic multimode cable, with a maximum cable distance of up to 2Km. Diagnostic LEDs are easily visible to support maintenance tasks. A comprehensive Network Operating System (NOS) driver suite supports NetWare, Windows 98/NT/2000/XP/Vista /Win7/2003 server/2008 server. Linux and PXE remote boot is also available.

ExpressCard is a open hardware standard developed by the Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) and issued by the ITU-T. This standard replaces earlier PC Card (also known as PCMCIA card) technology. The host device supports both PCI Express and USB 2.0 connectivity through the ExpressCard slot . Alloy EX100FX Series Network Adapters utilise the PCI Express connectivity. The major benefit of ExpressCard technology over PCMCIA CardBus is a dramatic increase in bandwidth, ExpressCard has a maximum throughput of 2.5 Gbit/s through PCI Express versus CardBus's shared 1.06 Gbit/s bandwidth. ExpressCard devices are hot-pluggable.
