The TC1504 is typically
used to link high speed synchronous data devices. It is
frequently used in harsh environments because of its
fiber optic benefits. This makes it is an efficient, low
cost solution to electrical/radio frequency
interference, ground loops, and lightning problems.
A compact and reliable,
the TC1504 Fiber Optic Modem links synchronous data
communication equipment requiring RS-422/RS-449
interfaces. It supports synchronous data rates up to
2.048 Mbps* with an external clock.
Transparent to the data,
the TC1504 combines external clocking and data into an
optical composite signal for transmission between local
and remote units. It is DCE/DTE switchable.
Diagnostics include local
and remote Loopback and visual indicators for power,
Receiving Timing, Receive Data, Transmit Timing,
Transmit Data, and Optic Sync. DIP switches are provided
for the Local and Remote Loopback functions, Slave
Clock, and DCE/DTE configuration.
The TC1504 will work with
all types and sizes of multimode (850nm/1300nm) or
single mode (1300/1500nm) fiber optic cable. Fiber
optic connectors are ST or FC. The electrical connector
is a male DB37. Power is 9 to 12VDC or 115/230VAC with
an external power cube. An extreme temperature version
(-20ºC to 70ºC), Model TC1504T, is also available.
