The TC3020 Mode Converter is frequently used to convert multimode to single mode, or vice versa, for various low speed devices in SCADA, Automation and Process Control communication environments. It is also used for Burst Data applications. This conversion is done to cross-connect different fiber types, regenerate optical signals and/or extend transmission distances.
Intended for low speed and Burst Data applications, the TC3020 Multimode-to-Single Mode Fiber Optic Converter converts multimode formats to single mode formats, or vice versa, for data transmission up to 5 Mbps.
The TC3020 is also used to regenerate or extend optical signals. It will convert, regenerate or extend 850nm, 1300nm or 1550nm wavelengths up to distances of 30 km*.
Eleven LEDs are provided for diagnostics, monitoring optic signals in both directions and indicating system status. A Test Signal Generator is available to help technicians conduct various installation tests including fiber link verifications. A Dry Contact Relay Alarm is also provided as a standard feature.
The TC3020 works with all popular types and sizes of fiber optic cable. Fiber optic connectors are ST or FC type. Power is 12VDC or 115/230VAC with an external power cube. The TC3020S is a Standalone Unit. The TC3020R is the Rackmount Card Unit that requires TCRM192 or TCRM196 Rackmount Card Cages. An extreme temperature version (-20°C to 70°C), Model TC3020T, is also available.
A terminal block connector on the rear panel provides for the dry contact relay alarm. Normally in the OPEN position, any loss of electrical or optical signal will trigger an alarm condition and force the switch to the CLOSED position. This relay can be used in conjunction with an external device to monitor the condition of the link.
