VERSITRON FOM II Series Model F2238A/F2245A High Speed fiber optic modems provide synchronous or asynchronous data transmission at speeds up to 10Mbps, at distances up to 20Km with fully transparent operations. Supporting RS-530 or MIL-STD-188-114A(balanced) interfaces, these products multiplex clock and data signals. They operate as two-channel multiplexer/converters. For high-speed synchronous operation, the first channel is used for data and the second is used for the transmit clock. Both channels may be used for data in low-speed asynchronous operation, typically at less than 100Kbps.
Designed for a wide variety of applications, the F2238A and F2245A products can operate in one of three different modes: Automatic, Forced Asynchronous, or Forced Synchronous.
These products can currently be found in two unusual applications. The VERSITRON RS-530 F2245A FOM II Series singlemode devices are being used in the Arctic Circle. Other devices in this series are being used to transmit data for municipal water flow monitoring equipment that determines operation of water pump controls to ensure a constant flow from the water source to the treatment plant.
