Omnitron Flexpoint Converter OC3FF

FlexPoint OC3FFThe FlexPoint OC3FF is a protocol-transparent fibre converter that provides reliable and cost-effective extension of network distances by connecting multimode fibre networks or devices over single-mode fibre cabling.

No manual configuration is required with the plug-and-play FlexPoint OC3FF. Connect the fibre cables to the appropriate interface and the installation is complete.

The FlexPoint OC3FF is designed to operate with a constant rate signal between 1Mbps to 155Mbps allowing the converter to be used in ATM networks as well as other fibre-to-fibre protocol applications.

The fibre port operates at 850nm, 1310nm or 1550nm and features SC or ST connectors. Multimode fibre models support distances of up to 5km, single-mode fibre models support distances of up to 120km, and single-mode single fibre models support distances up to 20km.

The FlexPoint OC3FF features descriptions of the LED indicators on the label for easy in-the-field installation and maintenance. The LEDs report the availability of power and the detection of devices attached to the fibre ports.

FlexPoint modules can be mounted utilizing optional wall-mounting hardware or with DIN-rail mounting brackets. They can also be rack-mounted in a 5-Module shelf or in a high-density 14-Module, power-redundant Powered Chassis.

FlexPoint modules installed in the 5-Module shelf or used as standalone devices can be powered by an external AC to DC power adapter, or through the 5VDC chassis connector. Standalone modules can also be powered by attaching an external DC power supply (18-60VDC). When used in the 14-Module power-redundant Powered Chassis with any combination of AC and DC power supplies, the installed modules are powered via the 5VDC chassis connector.

The wide variety of FlexPoint mounting and power options provide flexible upgrade paths as network requirements change and grow.

FlexPoint unmanaged media converters are easy to use and provide dependable fibre connectivity in Enterprise and Government networks around the world.

Application Example

The FlexPoint OC3FF fibre converter can extend the network across single-mode fibre with distances up to 120km. In this application, the customer’s router is connected to an Add Drop Multiplexer (ADM) providing access to the SONET ring using a pair of FlexPoint OC3FF fibre converters. The converters provide the multimode to single-mode conversion.
