Operating Modes: Modem Eliminator Mode: The unit is used to connect two DTE's, thereby replacing two synchronous modems. The interface-conversion function of the unit allows connecting even DTE's with different interfaces, in addition to the modem-eliminator function. In this mode, the unit fully emulates the operation of two modems connected in a link (one for each DTE). This includes supplying clock signals and handshaking control signals. The data rate is derived from an internal oscillator, and is selected by mean of the front-panel switch. Any standard rate in the range of 48 Kbps to 2048 Kbps can be selected. Both modules can also use External Timing: With External Timing, the unit accepts an external clock in the range of 1.2 Kbps to 2048 Kbps. This permits the transfer of system timing from one side to the other (clock locking). The maximum range that can be archieved depends on the interface type, cable type, and data rate, and can be up to 330 ft. Interface-Converter Mode: In this mode, lets you connect a DTE device to a DCE device that has a different interface. A physical and electrical conversion between the DTE and DCE interfaces is performed. The data rate is determined by the equipment connected to the unit. Elastic Buffer Mode: This mode is used to connect two independentlyclocked plesiosynchronous DCE's via FIFO buffers. By providing bi-directional buffering of data, the unit reduces loss of data that would otherwise occur because of the difference in clock rates. The two DCE's can have similar or different interfaces, and the data rate can be up to 2048 Kbps.
