Magnum 8000X Mixed-Media Fiber Dual-Speed Stackable Hubs provide the flexibility of configurable fiber and RJ-45 ports, of 100Mb or 10Mb Ethernet speed per-port, all in one hub with the expandability of stacking. Any mix of speeds and RJ-45 or fiber port types, up to 16 ports per hub, are accommodated in a 1U rack-mount package.

Port modules may be factory configured or may be changed or added in the field. Medium-sized “fiber-to-the-desktop” and industrial control networks that need to mix new ports at 100Mb performance with economical 10Mb ports for other nodes can benefit from the dualspeed 10/100Mb Magnum 8000X Mixed-Media fiber hubs.

Dual-speed network technology enables the Magnum 8000X hubs to accept either 100Mb or 10 Mb signals, over fiber or copper cables, configured on a per-port basis. Each fiber port can be installed as either 10Mb or 100Mb speed, with the fiber connector selected for ST, SC, FC, MTRJ, multi-mode or single-mode, FX or SX standard, or other popular fiber port connector types. Each RJ- 45 port is independently auto-sensing for 10/100Mb speed, and adapts to match the speed of the connected device.

The Magnum 8000X hubs support two shared traffic domains, one at 100Mb and one at 10Mb, with an internal bridge or switch interconnecting the two domains. Each port module is connected into the appropriate 100Mb or 10Mb domain, depending on its speed and type. As Magnum 8000X-A (or DS8016-A) stacked units are added, the two traffic domains are expanded, up to the three-units-high stacking capability of Magnum 8000s. Any combination of 100Mb or 10Mb ports, fiber or copper, may be in use.

The 8000X Mixed-Media Fiber Dual-Speed Hubs and other Magnum products are made in the USA and are backed by a three year warranty.


PERFORMANCE: Data Rate: 100 or 10Mbs, per port, individually selected. (The hub supports two traffic domains, one at 100Mb and one at 10 Mb, operating concurrently). PDV(100M Path Delay Value): 80BT exceeds Class II specification Partitioning: Enforced after 63 consecutive collisions Auto-reconnect: Occurs after one packet of error-free reception

INTERNAL SWITCH or BRIDGE: (One per stack to inter-connect the two traffic domains) Processing type: Store and Forward Address Table: 8K, self-learning, Packet buffers: 2MB, dynamic Latency (w/o packet time): 100 to 10Mb or 10 to 100Mb: 5µs NETWORK STANDARDS: IEEE 802.3u: 100BASE-TX, -FX, IEEE 802.3: 10BASE-T Auto-negotiation on TP, IEEE 802.3u All 10Mb ports obey the rules for configuring 10Mb Ethernet All 100Mb ports use Fast Ethernet rules

NETWORK CABLE CONNECTORS: Modular on a per-port basis. Fiber ports at 100Mb and 10Mb. Port modules for all fiber connector types, see “Ordering Information” below. RJ-45s are shielded female ports.

OPERATING ENVIRONMENT: Ambient Temperature: 32° to 120°F (0° to 50°C) Storage: -40°to 160°F (-40°to 70°C) Ambient Relative Humidity: 5% - 95% (non-condensing) Conformal coating (humidity protection) option: Request quote

STACKING CABLE: A stacking cable with 25-pin “DB-25” male connectors, shielded, 8-in (20 cm) long, included with each 8000X-A. Stacks with DS8016 Dual-Speed Hubs. Supports stacking up to 3 units high.

SWITCH PORT MODULES For Bonus Port Option: SPM-FDSC: 100Mb FDX Fiber SC multi-mode SPM-FDST: 100Mb FDX Fiber ST multi-mode SPM-FDSSC: 100Mb FDX Fiber SC single-mode (available by RFQ only) Note: 100Mb fiber segments attached to SPMs may be full fiber distance. Conversely, 100Mb fiber segments attached to FPMs are distance limited by collision domain considerations.

AC POWER SUPPLY (INTERNAL): AC Power Connector: IEC-type, male recessed, rear of chassis Power Input Voltage: 90 to 260 VAC (auto ranging) Power Input Frequency: 47 to 63 Hz Power Consumption: 30 watts typical, 65 watts max

DC POWER SUPPLY OPTIONS: -48VDC: Input -36 to -70VDC 24VDC: Input 20 to 40VDC 125VDC: Input 90 to 150VDC Std. Terminal Block: "-, GND, +", Power Consumption: Same as AC DC DUAL-SOURCE (OPTIONAL): The Magnum 8000X may be ordered with optional Dual DC power input, for continuity of operation when either one of the DC input sources is interrupted. Available for -48VDC, 24VDC, and 125VDC input types.

MECHANICAL: Enclosure: Rugged sheet metal. Suitable for stand-alone or 1U rack-mounting. Rack-mounting brackets: 19” included; ETSI and 23” Telco optional. Dimensions: 1.75 in H x 17 in W x 10.5 in D (4.4 cm x 43.2 cm x 26.7 cm) Weight: 4.0 lb. (1.8 kg) Cooling Method: Fan cooled, internal 9cfm

LED INDICATORS: POWER: Steady on when power applied BR: Steady on, unit has bridge inside ACT 10: packet activity, 10Mb ACT 100: packet activity, 100Mb COL 10: Collision indicator, 10Mb COL 100: Collision indicator, 100Mb LED indicators per port, in each PM, are “L” for LINK, “A” for Activity. RJ-45 PMs have an “S” for speed, where flashing indicates auto-negotiation, steady ON indicates 100Mbps and OFF indicates 10Mbps operation.

WARRANTY: Three years Made in USA
