RAD FOM-5A, FOM-6A Asynchronous Fiber Optic Modems 
 

FEATURES
  • The FOM-5A and FOM-6A, Asynchronous Fiber Optic Modems, are used for local data distribution connecting full or half duplex async computers and terminals. A pair of modems ensures integrity of data transmission over fiber optic cable at distances up to 3 km (2 miles).
  • FOM-5A is a miniature version of FOM-6A. Both modems are fully compatible and offer the same features. FOM-5A is 78 mm (3.1 in) by 18 mm (0.7 in); FOM-6A is 110 mm (4.3 in) by 24 mm (0.9 in).
  • FOM-5A and 6A feature a switch-selectable DTE/DCE option. This allows operation as DTE, for connection to another DCE such as a multiplexer port, eliminating the need for a cross cable. The carrier can be strapped for either continuous operation, or for switched operation controlled by the RTS signal, for transfer of a control signal end-to-end. A LED indicator lights whenever data transmission takes place.
  • The delay between Request to Send and Clear to Send can be set for 2 or 15 msec.
  • Innovative circuitry allows FOM-5A and 6A to operate without connection to the mains supply, by using ultra low power from the data and control signals.
  • Both modems are provided in a plastic enclosure. FOM-6A can optionally be supplied in a metal case to reduce radiated emission (see Ordering).

Note: With FOM-6A in a metal case, the LED indicator is not available.

  • FOM-5A and 6A incorporate all the advantages of a fiber optic system, providing:
    • Lower attenuation than with copper wire;
    • EMI/RFI immunity, saving the cost of expensive and heavy shielding, and complex error checking routines;
    • Almost absolute security and reduction in the cost of data encryption; eavesdropping is virtually impossible as negligible power is radiated from the fiber;
    • Safety and electrical isolation: no spark hazard and no ground-loop noise problems.

Note: Attenuation is not related to frequency.
