Designing your fiber optic transmission system with Litelink?
components and accessories is simple and straightforward. Since all components
and accessories are fully compatible, any of the company?s products may be used
"side-by-side" with other products thereby allowing the exact signal flow
configuration desired to be easily achieved.
The procedure to use to choose the correct system for your application is as

Determine the fiber optic cable and optical connectors you need or have.
This will usually be multimode (62.5/125 micron, ST connectors) or single-mode
(8/10/125 micron, FCPC connectors) depending on the transmission distance to

* The transmission distances listed are only approximate and will depend on
the loss of the actual fiber employed.
** Although ST connectors are not recommended for single-mode applications,
they can be provided if desired.
Adapters can also be provided for various non-standard connectors.
Please contact factor for details.
Determine if you will power the system locally or if you need to order
power supplies. Most Litelink? units operate from 10 to 24 V AC
(50/60Hz) or DC and require less than 500 ma.
All units may be mounted individually by using the mounting holes provided
on the housing (see diagram below). If rack mounting is desired, the same
housing can be mounted to any of the EIA compatible 19-inch Litelink?
RMP series mounting panels.
