Omnitron's FlexPoint media converters provide conversion between different cabling types as your wiring needs change. The same unit can be used stand-alone, wall-mounted, rack-mounted, or installed in the power-redundant Powered Chassis. You can mix and match various FlexPoint converters for any size network to deliver reliability and flexibility!
The FlexPoint T1/E1 connects T1 and E1 devices, such as PBXs, CSUs and routers, via multimode or single-mode fiber. Designed to extend the standard T1/E1 twisted pair and coax network distances over fiber, this converter provides protection from environmental noise and effectively increases high-speed network reliability. The converter provides support for line codes such as AMI, B8ZS and HDB3. The T1/E1 line codes and line lengths are configured using easy to arrange dip switches located on the FlexPoint T1/E1 media converter. The fiber port operates at 1300 nm and features SC, or ST connectors. Multimode fiber models support distances of up to 5 km, and single-mode fiber models support distances of up to 58 km. A crossover switch on the RJ45/RJ48 port makes it simple to connect the FlexPoint T1/E1 converter to DTE and DCE equipment like PBXs or CSUs and eliminates the need for crossover and custom cables to connect devices together. Diagnostic features include local loop-back, remote loop-back and all 1's insertion (AIS) mode for the copper or fiber segments. The local loop-back mode allows the installer to validate connectivity to local T1/E1 lines, while the remote loop-back feature allows the installer to validate the entire fiber segment from one unit without having to make adjustments on both ends. The FlexPoint offers several mounting options. It can be mounted stand-alone utilizing optional wall-mounting hardware. It can also be rack-mounted using a 5-unit rack-mounting shelf or in the 14-unit FlexPoint Powered Chassis which is available with redundant 110/220V AC or 48V DC power supplies.
