Sync/Async Fiber Optic Modem
- The FOM-8, Synchronous/Asynchronous Short Range
Modem, is used for local data distribution, connecting full or half duplex
Sync or Async DTEs to other DTEs, over fiber optic cable. FOM-8 operates
at data rates up to 19.2 kbps.
- FOM-8 performs diagnostic loops in compliance with
ITU V.54 standard. Two V.54 loops are available: analog loop (V.54 Loop 3)
and remote digital loop (V.54 Loop 2). The loops are activated by DTE
interface signals Circuit 141 (Pin 18) and Circuit 140 (Pin 21).
- Asynchronous transmission is provided by internal
conversion from Async to Sync in compliance with ITU V.22 bis standard.
Different Async formats are switch selectable.
- In the Synchronous mode, transmit timing is
provided by three alternative sources:
- Internal oscillator
- External clock
- Loopback clock derived from the receive signal.
- The modem's carrier can be strapped for either
continuous operation, or for switched operation. In switched operation,
the carrier is controlled by the RTS signal, and enables transfer of a
control signal end-to-end.
- FOM-8 is designed to operate with several grades
and sizes of fiber optic cable. Two different optical interfaces are
- 820 nm for use with multimode fibers
- 1300 nm for use with single mode fibers.
- FOM-8 incorporates all the advantages of a fiber
- Lower attenuation than with copper wires;
additionally, attenuation is not related to frequency.
- EMI/RFI immunity, which saves the cost of
expensive and heavy shielding and complex error checking devices.
- Security is almost absolute. The cost of data
encryption is reduced. Eavesdropping is virtually useless, as the fibers
generate negligible power.
- Safety and electrical isolation - no spark hazard
or ground-loop noise problems.
- Innovative circuitry design allows operation
without a power supply, by using ultra-low power from the standard
RS-232/V.24 data and control signals. For proper operation, both data and
at least one control signal must be connected. i.e. Transmit Data, Receive
Data, Signal Ground, and either RTS or DTR.
- FOM-8 is compatible with the CMN-CF8 card of the
19" CMN-16 modem rack.
