The TC3007 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 50 km are possible with the Laser
1300nm option (25dB loss budget).
The TC3007 functions both as a Fiber Optic Mode Converter/Repeater and a
2-Channel Wave Division Multiplexer. This benefits users by effectively
doubling existing fiber cable capacity in addition to its mode
The TC3007 will convert or repeat all popular wavelengths including 850nm,
1300nm or 1550nm. It is compatible with most communication technologies
including Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Token Ring, TAXI, OC1/OC3, ATM, FDDI and
SONET. It is completely transparent to incoming data and protocols.
The TC3007 provides users with several key features
including Local/Remote Loopback, Test Signal Generator, Dry Contact Alarm,
Audible Alarm Buzzer, Power Redundancy, and Standalone or
The Test Signal Generator and Dry Contact Alarm are particularly beneficial.
The Signal Generator (160Mbps) helps technicians conduct various installation
tests including fiber link verifications. The Dry Contact Alarm, which includes
an audible alarm buzzer, identifies Optical Signal Loss on either the multimode
or single mode ends.
is load sharing and switches over automatically in the event of a failure.
Power can be either 12VDC, 24VDC, -48VDC, 115/230VAC. 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. An extreme temperature version (-20° to
70°C), Model TC3007T, is also available.
A terminal block
connector on the rear panel provides for the dry contact relay alarm. Normally
in the OPEN position, any loss of electrical or optical signal will trigger an
alarm condition and force the switch to the CLOSED position. This relay can be
used in conjunction with an external device to monitor the condition of the

of its multiplexing capability, the TC3007 is often used to increase existing
fiber optic cable capacity in LAN or Telephony environments that require
connecting different fiber types or wavelengths, regenerating optical signals
and/or extending transmission distances. Typical environments include PABX,
Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Token Ring, FDDI, ATM and SONET (OC1 & OC3).
