T1 / E1 Fiber Converter

Model #: TD-5401

TD-5401

Overview

 The FOI-5401and TD-5401 provide complete electrical isolation for T1, DS1 or E1 communications.

The unit can be used in areas of high electrical noise or in and out of RF shielded enclosures. The fiber optic cable is not susceptible to interference caused by impulse noise, crosstalk, or EMI. Privacy of communications is also enhanced because the fiber optic cable does not radiate any emissions. FiberPlex recommends “R” units for high security applications because the units have added filtering and shielding for RFI suppression.

In addition, fiber optic cable offers much longer transmission distances than copper wiring. Traditional T1 cabling is limited to a maximum distance of 6200ft (1.89km), but multimode optics on the unit can extend the distance to 2km, while singlemode optics can further extend the distance to 20km. A typical link consists of two FOI-5401, one at each end of the network, with a duplex fiber optic cable between them.

 What’s the difference between the FOI and the TD versions?

Functionally, the FOI-5401 and TD-5401 are identical. The only differences are the packaging and power supply. The FOI-5401 is part of the FOI line of products designed for ruggedized military applications while the TD-5401 is housed in the commercial ‘Throw Down’ packaging.

  FOI Version TD Version
Standalone Power Requires a PSQ-4909 AC supply or PSQ-4920 DC supply AC Wall Power Adapter included
Power Connection High Reliability Lemo™ connector Both circular DC connector and 3-postion Phoenix™ quick connect
Chassis Mounting Uses the RMC series chassis for up to 9 units in 2U or 8 units with redundant power supply 6 units in a 1U with the optional TDR-01-AC or TDP
Case Mil-style sealed steel can enclosure Durable anodized brushed aluminum

Typical Applications

A standard link would consist of either a FOI-5401 or TD-5401 at each end of a fiber cable connection. Due to the flexible nature of SFP modules, the SFP version of this unit can accommodate a variety of singlemode, multimode, BiDi or CWDM optical modules providing maximum flexibility. These units create a simple plug and play point to point fiber extension for T1/E1 circuits which makes deployment of application to application and ciruit extensions fast and easy.

For mission critical and defense applications, the FOI version has several redundant powering chassis mount options. The TD version is designed for commercial and industrial applications and has a variety of mounting options including DIN rail, NEMA enclosures and 1U rack tray mounting.

See the diagram below for a diagram of typical enpoints that can be supported by the FOI-5401 and TD-5401.
