DESCRIPTION
This asynchronous RS-232 to Fiber Optic converter is built in a DB-25 gender mender sized enclosure. It can be used as a stand alone unit connected directly to the RS-232 port of a terminal, PC, modem, or mux. Multiple units can also be used in the MT-Nest. Because of their low price, they may also be used simply as short range modems for printers or other common RS-232 devices.

Fiber optic is generally used anywhere that HIGH SPEED, HIGH SECURITY or operation through ELECTRONICALLY NOISY or VOLATILE environments is required. The F-232 may also be considered to address the copper cabling restrictions of the newer high speed serial ports on PCs and modems (115Kbps) when used over longer cabling distances.

Three models are available. They are differentiated by their power sources. The basic, stand-alone unit has a small wall mount 9VAC transformer. A "MUX" version takes its power from the 12V test voltages (pins 9 &amp 10) of the RS-232 interface. The rack mount "Nest" version is compatible with the power requirements for CPS's MT-Nest.

The F-232 has three LEDs, a DCE/DTE switch, and a test jumper located between the "ST" style fiber connectors. It is optimized to operate over 62.5 micron fiber cable at distances up to two miles.
