The FlexPoint TR is a fully compliant IEEE 802.5j 4 or 16 Mbps Token Ring copper to fiber converter. It auto-senses and self-configures to the ring speed. The FlexPoint TR features an intelligent attachment auto-sensing circuit. It identifies the type of device attached to its UTP connector and self-configures accordingly.The UTP port of the FlexPoint TR may attach to a workstation's network interface card (NIC) or to a concentrator's ring-in, ring-out or lobe. The FlexPoint TR can attach a workstation via fiber to a concentrator lobe, extend ring-in and ring-out via fiber between concentrators and extend a lobe to a full concentrator using Omnitron's Lobe Extension Technology. For smart auto-sensing Token Ring switches, the FlexPoint TR supports server or workstation fiber attachment and fiber ring extension. The FlexPoint TR supports category 3 wiring or higher, with category 5 recommended for top performance. Using category 5 wiring, the FlexPoint TR reaches distances of up to 150 m at 16 Mbps and 500 m at 4 Mbps. On the fiber port, it reaches distances of up to 2.5 km using multimode fiber and up to 20 km using single-mode fiber. The FlexPoint TR provides media status and insertion progress indications for the copper and fiber ports. Smart LED indicators display insertion status and report problems. The FlexPoint TR features a media test that checks the attached copper and fiber cables for integrity and reports any detected defects. The FlexPoint offers several mounting options. The converter can be mounted stand-alone utilizing optional wall-mounting hardware. It can also be rack-mounted using a 5-unit shelf or in a high-density, 14-unit, dual power-redundant Powered Chassis.
