Doubles Use of Existing Fiber Optic Cable
Transparent to Data Format
Device - No External Power
Standalone or Rackmount
The Channel Surfer, Model TC4001 Fiber Optic Wavelength Division Multiplexer
(WDM), enables 1310nm and 1550nm wavelengths to be transmitted simultaneously
on the same fiber optic cable. The direction of the optical signals can be in
the same direction or opposite directions. Transparent to incoming data, the TC4001
effectively doubles existing cable capacity by multiplexing two separate channels
over one single mode fiber. Dual two-channel units are also available.
TC4001 unit separates incoming optical signals between 1310nm and 1550nm. Thus,
a user needs to connect the TC4001 to a device (transceiver, modem, etc.) with
a 1310nm single mode transmitter at one end and a 1550nm single mode transmitter
at the other end. The TC4001 fiber optic connectors are ST or FC. Because it is
a passive device, it requires no power. The TC4001R is the rackmount card that
can fit into TCRM191/2 or TCRM195/6. The TC4001S is the standalone/wallmount unit.
TC4001 is ideal for situations where existing fiber optic cable capacity is limited.
Because it doubles existing cable capacity by transmitting bi-directional signals
over a single fiber, it eliminates the need to install additional fiber optic

TC8000 is frequently used to link voice and data communications devices in telecommunications
and SCADA environments. It is also used in harsh environments where ground loops,
EMI/RFI interference and lightning conditions may occur.
TC8000 Series* is a highly specialized 4-to-28 channel analog and data Fiber Optic
Multiplexer that extends 600 Ohm audio and data channels to remote sites in a
campus network. Users can mix or match audio/intercom channels or RS-232, RS-422,
TTL and Dry Contact Interfaces in increments of four up to a maximum of 28 channels.
The intercom interface is for 4-wire voice communication (handsets) and the analog
interface is 600 Ohm transformer coupled. It is typically used for Frequency Shift
Keying (FSK) applications.
the TC8000 digitizes the analog and voice signals (PCM), voice quality does not
degrade over extended distances. Distances to 80 km* are typical over single mode
fiber, 4 km over multimode fiber.
It supports analog audio channels from 300Hz
to 3.4KHz and asynchronous data rates to 19.2Kbps. Diagnostics include LEDs for "Alarm," "Power A," "Power B," "Tx," "Rx"
and "Sync". Power redundancy is standard, optical redundancy is optional.
Fiber optic connectors are ST or FC. Electrical connectors are RJ-11. Power is
12VDC or 115/230VAC with an external power cube. 24VDC and -48VDC options are
TC8000 is available standalone or rack mount. Standalone versions (TC8000S) support
up to 8 channels, rack mount versions (TC8800R) support up to 28 channels. The
TCRM195 19" rackmount card cage supports up to 8 channels and TCRM191 19"
rackmount card cage supports up to 28 channels. Four RJ-11 ports are provided
on the rear side to connect with handsets or customer's audio devices. A hardened
temperature version (-20°C to 70°C), Model TC8000T, is also available
for harsh environments.
TC8000 is based on modern FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) technology. As
a result, it benefits users by enabling optimum flexibility, low current consumption,
high reliability and maximum MTBFs.
For ordering purposes, TC8001 is the Intercom version, TC8002 is the Analog version
and TC8003 is the Data version.

TC8108 Channel Stacker® is an inexpensive, reliable and flexible method for
connecting large numbers of printers, terminals and status collecting devices.
It is often used in harsh environments where EMI/RFI interference, ground loops
or lightning conditions may exist. The TC8108 can also be used to extend telephone
lines to remote locations with the Model TC1900 RS-232/Fiber Phone Extender.
The Channel Stacker, Model TC8108 Fiber Optic Multiplexer, maximizes user
flexibility by offering field interchangeable interfaces, modular expandability
from 8 to 64 channels and power/optical redundancy. It supports most popular interfaces
including RS-232, RS-422, TTL, RS-485* and Dry Contact Relays. It supports data
rates up to 38.4 Kbps*. Power redundancy is standard, optical redundancy is optional.
Both feature automatic switchover.
TC8108 unit consists of an 8-channel base unit and up to seven optional 8-channel
add-on PC Cards. These PC Cards can be Stacked (in 8-Channel increments)
up to 64 Channels. A 128-Channel version is possible by using a fan-out cable
to expand each RJ-11 port into two RS-232 Async channels. For units with more
than 24 Ch., the TCRM191 Rackmount Card Cages are required.
the electrical interfaces are modular, they are interchangeable at any time--before
or after installation. A user can mix up to four different interfaces (in 2-Channel
increments) on each 8-Channel card. Each PC expansion Card is identified by a
card number defined by a front panel DIP switch.
are extensive and include Local and Remote Loopback, 22 LEDs, and a Test Signal
Generator. LEDs include Tx, Rx, Alarm, Vcc,
RxA, RxB, & PWR. Individual Tx
and Rx LEDs are provided for each channel. The built-in test signal
generator verifies both device and fiber optic link operation. This feature benefits
users by helping technicians verify that both local & remote devices and the
fiber optic link are operating normally. No other test equipment is required for
link and device verification.
TC8108 is compatible with all types and sizes of multimode (850/1300nm) or single
mode (1300/1550nm) fiber optic cable. Fiber optic connectors are ST or FC; electrical
connectors are RJ-11. Power is 12VDC or 115/230VAC with an external power cube.
