FMUX160 16 x E1 + 4 x 10/100 Ethernet Fibre Multiplexer

16 x E1 + 4 x 10/100 Ethernet Fibre Multiplexer

The FMUX160 is 1U 19” rack mountable, PDH Fibre Optic Multiplexer that transmits up to 16x E1 + 4 x 10/100Base-T(X) Fast Ethernet over a single fibre optic link. The FMUX160 chassis in available in five different power configurations; single AC, single DC, dual AC, dual DC, or AC+DC. The AC supplies operate from 90 ~ 240VAC while DC supplies operate from 18~72VDC. On the rear of the chassis, the BNC model provides 16 unbalanced 75 Ohm coaxial connections with BNC connector while the RJ-45 model provides 16 balanced 120 Ohm connections over twisted pair wiring with RJ45 connectors . With two SFP sockets on fibre ports, the FMUX160 gives you the fibre cabling connector SFP-LC, both multi-mode and single-mode are available as well as BiDi which allows bi-directional transmissions using only a single fibre cable. 1+1 Automatic optical line protection is also supported for the aggregate fibre ports. The standard FMUX160 configuration may be viewed or set via serial VT-100 terminal connection or SNMP card with web, telnet, and SNMP management.
