The Digital Multidrop Extender (DME) RS-232 line driver utilizes state of the art digital CMOS technology to provide a feature filled product at a very affordable price. The DME transmits and receives data bi-directionally at data rates up to 64kbps. The unit is designed for synchronous Point-to-Point or Multi-point operation.
Applications that benefit from the DME are Polled / Contention networks operating on Switched or Constant Carrier Operation. The DME allows the user to set up a fully digital multipoint network over a campus environment by connecting directly to the back of a CSU/DSU. In this scenario, clocking is provided by the DDS while the DME transmits digital data bi-directionally as the DTE devices are polled from the Host site.
Substantial cost savings are derived by eliminating the need for a Time Division Multiplexer (TDM) or Digital Sharing Device (DSD) behind the CSU/DSU. Additionally, analog Line Drivers are no longer required from the subchannel ports of the TDM or DSD to remote DTE devices.
Installation is fast and simple by setting the internal DCE/DTE switch, Clocking, Constant or Switched Carrier Operation and the Contention Mode of RTS or Data.
The DME provides optional Anti-Streaming circuitry. Once enabled, Anti-Streaming will automatically remove a defective DTE from service if the Data / Control criteria is present for the user defined selection period.
The DME is housed in a sturdy metal enclosure and operates on 110/220VAC.
The DME has a three year warranty and a 24 hour turnaround on warranty repairs.
