The FlexPoint TR is a 4 or 16 Mbps Token Ring copper-to-fiber media converter that provides reliable and cost-effective network connectivity and fiber extension. The FlexPoint TR features an intelligent attachment auto-sensing circuit which identifies the type of attached device and configures accordingly.
The UTP port of the FlexPoint TR features a crossover switch to facilitate the attachment to a workstation or a concentrator for plug-and-play installations. For smart auto-sensing Token Ring switches, the FlexPoint TR supports server or workstation fiber attachment and fiber ring extension.
The fiber port operates at 850nm or 1310nm and features ST connectors. The multimode fiber model supports distances up to 2.5km, and the single-mode fiber model supports distances up to 20km.
The FlexPoint TR can attach a workstation via fiber to a concentrator lobe, extend ring-in and ring-out via fiber between concentrators or extend a lobe to a full concentrator.
Description of the manual switch settings and LED indicators are provided on the label for easy in-the-field configuration, installation and maintenance. The LEDs report the availability of power, link status and insertion progress for the copper and fiber ports. Media integrity testing of the attached copper and fiber cables is available via a manual switch.
FlexPoint modules can be mounted utilizing optional wallmounting hardware or with DIN-rail mounting brackets. They can also be rack-mounted in a 5-Module shelf or in a high-density 14-Module, power-redundant Powered Chassis.
FlexPoint modules installed in the 5-Module shelf or used as standalone devices can be powered by an external AC to DC power adapter, or through the 5VDC chassis connector. Standalone modules can also be powered by attaching an external DC power supply (18-60VDC). When used in the 14-Module power-redundant Powered Chassis with any combination of AC and DC power supplies, the installed modules are powered via the 5VDC chassis connector.
The wide variety of FlexPoint mounting and power options provide flexible upgrade paths as network requirements change and grow.
Simple, dependable and flexible. For over a decade, FlexPoint media converters have been providing reliable fiber connectivity in Enterprise and mission-critical networks around the world.
FlexPoint unmanaged media converters are easy to use and provide dependable fiber connectivity in Enterprise and Government networks around the world.
Two Token Ring MAU concentrators (A) are connected via fiber with a pair of FlexPoint TR media converters at each concentrator.
A Token Ring MAU (B) is connected via fiber to a workstation using a pair of FlexPoint TR media converters. The FlexPoint TR allows a quick installation of a single workstion to an existing Token Ring network. In both cases, multimode or single-mode fiber can be used, and fiber links can be extended up to 20km using single-mode fiber.
