Provides four, individually-selectable fiber-optic outputs with Type ST connectors and 820 nm transmitters compatible with multimode fiber (typically 62.5/125 µm). Available on the Model 1201B/C.
Four Configurable Fiber-Optic Outputs, as installed on rear of chassis.
These outputs are jumper-configurable to each of the digital (CMOS) signals listed under 'Output Functions' for the applicable clock. Analog (IRIG-B modulated and ± 5 V recorder) signals are not available.
Provides an optical power output of - 15 dBm minimum, - 12 dBm typical, into 62.5/125 µm fiber. Using this 62.5/125 µm fiber and the Model 10881A Fiber-Optic to Logic Adapter, the optical power budget is 8.0 dB minimum, 15.0 dB typical. The transmitter is also usable with 50/125 µm, 100/140 µm, and 200 µm PCS fiber.
This power capacity allows fiber link lengths of 2.3 km (7500 ft) worst-case, 5 km (3 miles) typical, with fiber having attenuation of 3.5 dB/km maximum, 2.8 dB/km typical. The optical signal is ON whenever the selected logic signal is HIGH. Transmitter bandwidth is compatible with all available logic signals; the Model 10881A Fiber-Optic to Logic Adapter is compatible with all available logic signals up to 5 Mpps.
