The OABR2Ethernet Media Converter converts data between BroadR-Reach® (OABR) and standard Ethernet 100BASE-T.

OABR2Ethernet Media Converter

The OABR2Ethernet Media Converter converts between OPEN Alliance BroadR-Reach® (OABR) and Standard Ethernet 100BASE-T.


OABR2Ethernet is an automotive media converter between OPEN Alliance BroadR-Reach® (OABR) and standard Ethernet 100BASE-T. The device is primarily designed to convert Ethernet signals between a car’s ECU on one side and a PC or data logger on the other, but it can also be used for any other application where this conversion is needed.

In addition to the conversion functionality, OABR2Ethernet provides a high-speed CAN transceiver. If there is no activity on the connected CAN bus, the device can optionally be put into sleep mode to reduce power consumption. The sleep timeout is configurable via software.

Basic configuration is realised with DIP switches, and LEDs provide information about the current status of the media converter and the connected interfaces. The firmware of the device can be updated via USB bootloader.

*All X2E OABR products run through Teledyne LeCroy’s QualiPHY Compliance Test. We gladly provide you with the test results.
