CommLink FXC-S201 & FXC-3201
Fiber Optic Intercom Link

The CommLink FXC-S201 and FXC-3201 is a fiber optic transceiver system that carries two intercom channels seamlessly over a single strand or dual strands of fiber spanning distances of more than 30 kilometers (18.6 miles). With advanced digital noise elimination circuitry, users won’t know that they aren’t connected by traditional copper wires.

  • Transports two intercom channels via one or two strand of single-mode fiber up to 30 km (18.6 mi.)
    • Infrastructure fiber
    • TAC Cable
  • Compatible with most partyline and digital matrix intercom systems
  • 2-wire partyline
    • Clear-Com
    • RTS 2-wire
  • Matrix
    • Clear-Com MatrixPlus/Eclipse
    • RTS 2-wire Adam/Cronus/Zeus
  • Advanced automatic digital nulling
  • Internal power supply can provide power for up to 10 Clear-Com or RTS 2-wire beltpacks
  • Advanced hybrid interfaces two 2-wire intercom lines to two 4-wire lines
  • Uses a single or dual common ST connector on the standalone version, and a single or dual LC connection on the Densité frame version
  • Immune to RF interference and ground loops
  • Front panel status monitoring
  • Available in Mini-Mussel enclosure for harsh environments and as Densité card for permanent frame installations
  • Acts as a standalone (non-fiber) dual-channel digital hybrid interface
