The TC8300 is a remarkably flexible one-to-four channel T1/E1 Fiber Optic Multiplexer that is frequently used to link PBXs, Channel Banks, Customer Premise Equipment and M13 Muxes to DSX-1 Cross Connects.
The TC8300 is a 1 to 4 channel T1/E1 Fiber Optic Multiplexer that offers several advanced features including extensive diagnostics, extra data channels, management software, power and optical redundancy, jitter removal and a replaceable Line Interface module. It is available both multimode and single mode and is compatible with all popular types and sizes of optic cable. The standard loss budget is 15dB, higher budgets are optional. Distances to more than 100km are possible with the single mode 1550nm option (34dB loss budget).
Diagnostics are extensive. Each channel offers six LED indicators to ease installation and troubleshooting - one each for RxD, Alarm, T1/E1 Signal Loss, BPV violations, Remote Loopback and Remote Signal Loss. Individual channels provide 4 DIP switches, accessible from the front panel, to control settings for line code, line length, local Loopback or remote Loopback. Dry contacts are also provided.
The extra out-of-band data channels are intended for multi-purpose communications. Up to eight RS-232 channels are available in addition to the T1/E1 channels. The out-of-band RS-232 channels can be used for telephone service with the Model TC1900 "Quick-Talk" Phone Extender.
Power redundancy is standard; optical redundancy is optional. Both provide automatic switchover in the event of failure. The TC8300 is transparent to the framing format and supports all applicable standards and line codes including CCITT G.703 and AMI/B8ZS/HDB3 Line Codes. Line distances from 0 to 655 feet (for connecting to DSX-1 cross connects) are supported. Jitter is eliminated because of a built-in elastic buffer and jitter attenuator.
TC8300S is the Standalone/Wallmount Unit. The TC8300R is the PC Card version that fits into TCRM191 or TCRM195 19" Rackmount Card Cages. Fiber optic connectors are ST or FC. Input power is 12VDC (standard); optional 24VDC, -48VDC, or 115/230VAC with a built-in or external power supply. Special four-position and two-position feed-thru detachable terminals are provided for connecting the T1/E1 twisted pairs. An extreme temperature version (-20ºC to 70ºC), Model TC8300T, is also available.
