MAXI Mode Converter is used to convert multimode to single mode, or vice
versa, in a variety of LAN and Telephony communication environments
including PABX, Ethernet, Token Ring, FDDI, ATM & SONET (OC1 &
This conversion is done to cross-connect different fiber types,
regenerate optical signals and/or extend transmission distances.
TC3005 "MAXI" Multimode-to-Single Mode Fiber Optic Converter
converts multimode formats to single mode formats, or vice versa, for data
transmission up to 200 Mbps. Transmission
distances to more than 100km are possible with the Laser 1550nm option
(34dB loss budget).
MAXI will convert or repeat all popular wavelengths including 850nm,
1300nm or 1550nm over single mode or multimode fiber optic cable.
It is compatible with most communication technologies including
Ethernet, Token Ring, TAXI, OC1/OC3, ATM, FDDI and SONET.
MAXI provides users with several key features including Local & Remote
Loopback, a Test Signal Generator, Dry Contact Relay Alarm, Audible Alarm
Buzzer, Power Redundancy, and standalone or rackmount modularity.
Test Signal Generator and Dry Contact Alarm are particularly beneficial.
The Signal Generator (160 Mbps) helps technicians conduct various
installation tests including fiber link verifications.
The Dry Contact Alarm Relay, which includes an audible alarm
buzzer, identifies Optical Signal Loss on either the multimode or single
redundancy is load sharing and switches over automatically in the event of
a failure. Power can be
either 12VDC (standard), 24VDC, -48VDC, or 115/230VAC with an external
power cube. Standalone
versions are modular, i.e. used either in a standalone case or in a Rack
Mount assembly. Standard
connectors are ST or FC type.
DIP switches and eight LED indicators are provided to help installation
and troubleshooting. An
extreme temperature version (-20° to 70°C), Model TC3005T, is also
to 200 Mbps
