OPERATION
DESCRIPTION
With a Clear-Com FIM-202D System, you can connect Clear-Com
intercom panels or interfaces to the central matrix using fiber-optic
cables at distances of up to 12 miles (20 km).
The system consists of one FIM-202D at the matrix-frame end and
another FIM-202D unit at the matrix-panel end. Connecting the pair of
interfaces with fiber rather than with the standard 4-wire twisted pair
copper, gives you advantages such as increased security from
electromagnetic and RF interference, flexibility in equipment
placement, ease of maintenance, and often, reduced cost.
Figure 1-1: FIM-202D Unit
CONNECTING INTERCOM PANELS TO THE CENTRAL MATRIX
The Clear-Com FIM-202D system transmits audio and data signals
from 1 or 2 intercom panels or interfaces using easily available
standard Ethernet cable to the matrix frame through the process
illustrated in Figure 1-2. The illustration shows both directions of the
signal flow as the system transmits in full-duplex mode.
Clear-Com Communication Systems
FIM-202D Matrix Fiber Interface Instruction Manual
1-1
Figure 1-2: Connecting Intercom Panels to the Central Matrix
1. Matrix Plus 3 and Eclipse intercom panels transmit analog audio
signals and digital data signals to the first FIM-202D unit via
standard Ethernet copper cable terminated with RJ-45 connectors.
2. The first FIM-202D unit converts the analog audio signals to digital
audio signals through an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) located
on the FIM-202D unit’s main circuit board.
3. The first FIM-202D unit then multiplexes (combines) the digital audio
signals with the already digital data signals.
4. The first FIM-202D then converts the multiplexed digital signal into
an optical signal.
5. The first FIM-202D then transmits the optical signal over
fiber-optical cable to the second FIM-202D unit, where a similar but
reverse process occurs to convert the signal back to its original
format.
6. The second FIM-202D unit converts the received optical signal to a
digital signal.
7. The second FIM-202D then “demultiplexes” (separates) the digital
signal back into it’s separate audio and data signals for each
intercom unit.
8. The second FIM-202D then converts the digital audio signals for
each intercom panel to analog audio signals by sending the signals
through a digital-to-analog converter (DAC) located on the
FIM-202D unit’s main circuit board.
9. The second FIM-202D unit then transmits the analog audio and
digital data signals for each intercom panel to the central matrix over
standard Ethernet copper cable terminated with RJ-45 connectors.

CIRCUIT
DESCRIPTION
Analog-to-Digital
(A/D) Converters
High speed analog-to-digital converters for
each audio channel.
Multiplexer
Sequentially presents two RS-422 digital
inputs and two digitized audio signals from the
A/D converters to the optical output driver.
Demultiplexer
Takes sequential digital signals from the pin
diode and separates them into 4 separate
lines: two to the D/A converters and two to the
RS-422 transmitters.
Digital-to-Analog
(D/A) Converters
High speed digital-to-analog converters for
each audio channel convert the digitized audio
signal back to analog audio.
10. The central matrix receives the intercom panels’ audio and data
signals in the same format in which they were originally sent by the
Matrix Plus 3 or Eclipse intercom panels.
Warning: Always use extreme caution with fiber-optic equipment.
Never look directly into the light port or into the end of
the optical fiber while either FIM-202D unit is operating.
Even if you do not see visible light, eye damage is
possible.
CONNECTING INTERFACE MODULES TO THE CENTRAL MATRIX
With a pair of FIM-202D units you can also remotely connect
Clear-Com rack-mounted Matrix interface modules to the central
matrix. For example, using a Clear-Com CCI-22 dual party-line
interface at one end, you can connect two independent, external 2-wire
party line systems to the central matrix over large distances. Or, with a
Clear-Com TEL-14 Telephone Interface Module, you can send
telephone audio to the central matrix over a secured, interference-free
fiber-optic line. By using a Clear-Com FOR-22 4-wire interface
module, you can send 4-wire audio plus transmit keying over a
fiber-optic line. You can also use a Clear-Com EF-701M to interface
2-wire Clear-Com or RTS party lines to the central matrix over a
fiber-optic link.
Figure 1-3 shows a system with connected interface modules.

The party lines are linked by connecting the EF-701M to the FIM-202D
using shielded CAT5 cable, plugging into the "CH1 Station" port on the
FIM-202D and the “Matrix” port on the EF-701M. Set the Matrix/Direct
switch (switch 1 on the rear of the EF-701M) to the up position and the
CC/TW switch (switch 2) to the required position depending on party
line type.
See figure Figure 1-5 below for an example of this setup.
Ensure that each pair of EF-701M units are connected to the same
station ports on the FIM-202D interfaces i.e. CH1 Station to CH1
Station, CH2 Station to CH2 Station.

second “CH2 Station” ports.
FIM-202D TWO-FIBER CONFIGURATION
In a standard two-fiber system, identical FIM-202D units are used at
each location. The units both transmit at 1300 nm on ST connector
“Fiber Out” and receive the 1300 nm signal on ST connector “Fiber In”.
They are connected by the two fibers so that the optical output of each
box is connected to the optical input of the other. In both one- and
two-fiber systems, the input of channel 1 on one unit becomes the
output of channel 1 on the other unit, and vice versa.
The two FIM-202D units in the two-fiber version are identical, so the
units are interchangeable.

INSTALLATION
UNPACKING
When you receive your Clear-Com FIM-202D System, check to make
sure you have received all components of the system. The following
items make up a Clear-Com FIM-202D:
• FIM-202D multiplexer/demultiplexer unit
• External power supply
• You will require two FIM-202D units to complete a circuit.
Inspect the units for mechanical damage. Inspect all electrical
connectors for bent or damaged pins and latches. Report any damage
to the carrier and to Clear-Com Communication Systems.
Leave the protective plastic caps on the optical connectors until it is
time to attach the fibers to the units.
SELECTING AND INSTALLING FIBER-OPTIC
CABLE
The person installing the FIM-202D units is responsible for providing
the fiber optic cable runs. The FIM-202D will operate with either
Single-Mode or Multi-Mode Fiber Optic Cable. You will experience the
best distance performance when using Single-Mode cable as shown in
Table 2-1.

3 miles (5 km)
62.5 microns (multimode)
2 miles (3 km)
8 microns (single mode)
12 miles (20 km)
Table 2-1: Maximum Fiber Lengths
Mark or tag the optical fibers when they are pulled, carefully avoiding
the fiber tip, so that their identity is known at both ends. If there is
confusion about the identity of the two fibers, shine a flashlight at one
end of the fiber and look for light at the other end.
Warning:Do not use the FIM-202D optical output to identify
cables. Never look directly into the end of the optical
fiber while either end of the system is operating. Even if
you do not see visible light, eye damage is possible.

GLOSSARY
Analog Port Any of the Eclipse matrix’s analog input/output RJ-45
connectors that are used to connect cable from the matrix to panels
and interfaces. Each “port” connects to a separate audio channel in the
matrix intercom system.
Bus A bus is the channel or path between the components in the
matrix along which electrical signals flow to carry information from one
component to the next. In the Eclipse matrix the bus is located in the
etched surface of the midplane.
Call Signal A call signal is an electronic signal sent from one panel or
interface to another. A call signal can be audible and/or visual.
Typically a call signal is sent to get the attention of a panel operator
who may have turned down their intercom speaker’s volume or
removed their headset. It can also be sent to activate an electronic
relay.

FreeSpeak name in Europe and Asia and CellCom in USA.
Full Duplex Refers to transmission of signals in two directions
simultaneously.
IFB “Interruptible Foldback”. The term “foldback” refers to sending
“program” audio, or some other audio mix, back to announcers while
they are on the air. Doing so allows announcers to monitor
themselves, other announcers, videotapes of commercials, or some
mix of sources, while they on the air. This is typically found in television
news and live broadcast events.
Announcers typically wear a small ear piece so they can hear the
selected foldback audio mix. When a director wants to give directions
to an announcer on air, or to announce changes in the program, the
director must “interrupt” the foldback. To do this, the director uses a
channel specifically set up to interrupt the foldback audio.
Interface Module A piece of electronic hardware designed to convert
the 4-wire signals of a central matrix port to some other form of
communication, such as 2-wire party line, telephone, etc. The interface
module is connected to a central matrix port. The external non-4-wire
device is then connected to the interface module.
ISO The ISO function, short for “panel ISOlation”, allows a panel
operator to call a destination and interrupt all of that destination’s other
audio paths and establish a private conversation. When the call is
completed the destination’s audio pathways are restored to their
original state before the interruption.
IV-R Instant Voice Router. Software that routes digital audio data
between Concert users and between Concert users and Eclipse
systems.
Label A label is an alphanumeric name of up to five characters that
identifies a source, destination, or control function accessed by an
intercom panel. Labels appear in the displays of the intercom panel.
Labels can identify panels, ports interfaced to other external
equipment, fixed groups, party lines, and special control functions.
Mode A term used to describe a light path through a fiber as in
multimode or single mode.
Multimode Fiber-optic Cable The glass core of a multimode fiber is
larger than the core of a single mode fiber, which causes the
transmitted light beam to disperse as it travels through the core. Single
mode fiber, with its smaller core, concentrates the light beam so that it
carries signals further. Multimode fiber was the first type of fiber offered
5-2
Clear-Com Communication Systems
Eclipse Glossary
by manufacturers. Single-mode fiber evolved as production methods
improved.
Multiplexing The process by which two or more signals are
transmitted over a single communications channel. Examples include
time division and wavelength division multiplexing.
Nanometer (nm) Common unit of measure for wavelength. One
billionth of a meter.
Non-volatile Memory Data stored in the CPU’s firmware (ROM) that
is not lost when the power is turned off.
Optical Signal A laser at one end of a fiber-optic cable pulses on or off
to send a light signal through the glass core of the cable to the other
end of the cable. Because the light signals are binary (on or off), the
signal is digital.
Panel Also referred to as “station” in some cases (usually older
manuals). Any intelligent intercom device connected to the rear-panel
analog ports of the central matrix. This term does not refer to devices
connected through interface modules.
Port Any of the input/output connections (RJ-45 connectors) on the
back panel of the central matrix. These connectors and the attached
cables connect the central matrix to remote intercom devices. The
term “port” emphasizes that the connection is a “portal” between the
central matrix and the remote intercom devices.
Program Any separate audio source that is fed into the intercom
channels. In television applications, for example, “program” audio is
the audio that is broadcast on air.
Rack Unit or RU Standardized unit of mounting space on a rack panel.
Each rack unit is 1.75 inches (44.45 mm) of vertical mounting space.
Therefore 1 RU is 1.75 inches (44.45 mm) of vertical mounting space,
2 RU is 3.5 inches (88.9 mm), 3 RU is 5.25 inches (133.35 mm), and
so on.
Remote Panel Any intelligent intercom device connected to the
back-panel ports of the central matrix. This term does not refer to
devices connected through interfaces.
Sidetone The sound of the panel operator’s own voice heard in their
own earphone as they speak.
Single-mode Fiber-optic Cable The glass core of a single-mode fiber
is smaller in diameter than the core of a multimode fiber, so that the
light signal transmitted over the core is more concentrated than with
multimode fiber, which allows the signal to travel further. Single-mode
fiber evolved from multimode fiber as production methods improved.
Source In this manual, the term “source” refers to a device—such as
an intercom panel, interface, or beltpack —that sends audio into the
matrix. The device to which audio is sent is called a “destination”.

VOX In the Eclipse system, when audio at a panel exceeds a
threshold, a light switches on at the panel’s port card to visually cue the
operator. The threshold level is set in the Eclipse Configuration
Software.
V-Series Communications panels used with Eclipse systems providing
advanced facilities. Available in rack mount and desktop formats.
Wavelength-division Multiplexing (WDM) A method of multiplexing
optical signals developed for use on fiber-optic cable. Each signal is
assigned a particular wavelength on the light spectrum and therefore
many signals can be transmitted simultaneously without interfering
with each other.
