Signal Powered Limited Distance Modem LDM80 - 1

Industrial Data Communication Products > Description The LDM80 is a small, inexpensive fiber optic transmitter/receiver completelypowered by the host RS-232 port. The enclosure for the LDM80 is a conductiveshell which greatly reduces RF radiation and susceptibility. The rugged metalenclosure is small enough to mount on the back panel of typical computer equipment saving valuable desk and floor space. A pair of these units allowsmost RS-232C cable links to be replaced and extended with a duplex fiber opticcable. The normal 50-foot (15m) RS-232 limit may be extended to 2.2 miles (3.5 km). Fiber optic data communications provide complete EMI/RFI rejec-tion, isolation, elimination of ground loops, and reduced error rates. Datasecurity is enhanced by almost nonexistent electromagnetic emissions. TheRS-232 connection is through male or female EIA 25-pin connectors. The fiberoptic connection is through ST connectors.The LDM80 is equivalent to a 3-wire, full duplex, RS-232 circuit. Handshakesignals are locally connected as in Figure 1. Indicating LEDs come on duringa "SPACE" on transmit or receive data. A TD/RD reversing DIP switch isprovided for connection to DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) or DCE (Data Communication Equipment) ports.
