LOCAL FIBER MUX-6
2. Introduction
2.1 General
The Local Fiber Mux-6 is a full-duplex time-division asynchronous
multiplexor enabling up to twelve async terminals to be multiplexed onto a
single channel. The Local Fiber Mux-6 is intended for use in manufacturing
facilities, building complexes, campuses, and other similar point-to-point
applications.
2.2 Functional Description
The Local Fiber Mux-6 contains six sub-channels that can be expanded to
twelve through connection of channel doubler cables. The number of
channels available (6/12) is set by a user-selectable strap.
When the unit is set for six channels, each channel can be used to transmit
full-duplex data end-to-end. When the unit is set for twelve channels, each
sub-channel can be used for either data or control-signal transmission,
according to the specific application. For example: six channels can be used
to transmit full-duplex data and six can be used to transmit control signals
end-to-end, or else the full twelve channels can be used to transmit full-duplex
data end-to-end.
The main channel interface has a dual fiber for transmission over duplex
fiberoptic cable.
Multiplexing is implemented using an oversampling technique. Each of
the twelve channels is sampled at 157.2 kbps rate. Table 2-1 summarizes
Local Fiber Mux-6 performance with various options and modes of operation.
NOTE
Whenever possible (if the number of channels is less than or equal to 6)
we recommend that you operate the Local Fiber Mux-6 in the six-channel
mode, which results in less distortion.

4.3 Operating Procedure
WARNING
When you plug in the Local Fiber Mux-6, the protective earth terminals of
this instrument must be connected to the protective conductor of the
(mains) power cord. The mains plug shall only be inserted in a socket
outlet provided with a protective earth contact. The protective action
must not be negated by use of an extension cord (power cable) without a
protective conductor (grounding). Make sure that only fuses with the
required rated current are used for replacement. The use of repaired
fuses and the short-circuiting of fuse holders must be avoided.
Whenever it is likely that the protection offered by fuses has been
impaired, the instrument must be made inoperative and secured against
any unintended operation.
Power-On
Apply AC power by connecting the AC power cord to an acceptable AC
source. If the power indicator lights, then the Local Fiber Mux-6 is powered.
If the local and remote Local Fiber Mux-6 units are in operation and properly
connected via the main channel, no other indicator should be ON. If
another condition exists, refer to Section 4.5 for troubleshooting information.
Operation
The Local Fiber Mux-6 operates entirely unattended except when performing
system tests.
Power-Off
To turn off Local Fiber Mux-6, simply remove the AC power cord from the AC
source.
Operational Field Strapping Changes
If you need to reconfigure the Local Fiber Mux-6 for twelve-channel mode or
six-channel mode, follow the appropriate set-up procedure described in
Section 3-2.
22
LOCAL FIBER MUX-6
4.4 System Tests
Two system tests are available in the Local Fiber Mux-6: local loopback and
remote loopback.
Local Loopback
When performing local loopback, the data from the local transmitter is
looped back to the local receiver at the digital level, thus checking all local
digital circuitry for proper operation. This test is activated by pressing the
LLB push-button located on the front panel. If the local unit is operating
properly, the yellow TEST indicator should light, and all other indicators
should be OFF. If the local and remote units are properly connected via the
main channel, the local transmitter analog interface and both the remote
analog and digital receiver sections are checked. The yellow TEST indicator
on the remote unit should also be lit if the units are properly connected.
Remote Loopback
Remote loopback loops back data from the remote receiver to the remote
transmitter, thus checking:
• All local digital circuitry
• Both local and remote analog interfaces
• Main channel link
• Remote digital receiver section.
This test is performed by pressing the RLB push-button on the front panel.
If both local and remote units operate properly, the yellow TEST indicators
should be lit at both units, and all other indicators should be OFF.
NOTE
When either local or remote loopback test is performed, the following
signals at the remote unit sub-channels are set to OFF (negative voltage)
condition:
• Received Data (Circuit 104)
• Clear to Send (Circuit 106)
• Receive Line Signal Detector (Circuit 109)

Symptom
Action
All front panel indicators are OFF
(a) Check that power is supplied to the unit.
(b) Check the fuse inside the AC receptacle
on the rear panel and replace it with a new
one.
(c) Replace unit. The fault is probably in
the unit’s power-supply circuits.
Red LOCAL SYNC LOSS is ON
(a) Perform LLB. Yellow TEST indicator
should light and LOCAL SYNC LOSS
should go OFF. If not, replace the local
unit. Otherwise, proceed to step (b).
(b) Perform RLB. Yellow TEST indicator
should light and LOCAL SYNC LOSS
should go OFF. In that case, replace the
remote unit. Otherwise, proceed to step (c).
(c) Perform steps (a) and (b) at the remote
site. If the fault is still not located, replace
both units one at a time. If the problem
remains, the main-channel link is defective
and should be checked.
