FOM32 is a converter and/or data concentrator for serial communications, using different transmission media for communication transfer and exchange.
FOM32 supports the following transmission media: MM fiber, POF fiber and SM fiber; as well as the following standard communications protocols: RS232, RS485, RS422 and Ethernet.
FOM32 utilises automatic adjustment of optical wavelength and optical power, enabling a transparent transfer from one optic medium to another and, consequentially, removing the need for user intervention in adjusting the communication rate.
The device supports three most common types of optical media: multi mode (MM), single mode (SM) and plastic (POF) fiber. The multi-mode connection uses ST connectors, the single-mode fibers use SC-BIDI connectors and plastic POF fibers use POF connectors. It is also worth mentioning that the integrated SC-BIDI connector on a single-mode fiber also enables the connection of a multi-mode fiber.
The FOM32 model is manufactured in two versions. The first variant is modular (FOM32MU) and housed in a case ready for installation to a DIN rail. The second, multi-channel FOM32MR8 variant in a 19″” case is ready for intallation into standard 19″” communication cabinets. Both variants are equipped with LED indication of status for each communication path and power supply to device.
