EOTec 2000 fiber optic network topologies

The EOTec system supports multiple network topologies that allow users to distribute their PLC and fieldbus communications in configurations typically not supported by the native “copper” version of the same network. Use the links below to explore the possibilities:

Optical Repeater

In this example, each EOTec 2000 node includes:

Point to Point configuration

In this example, each EOTec 2000 node includes:

Linear Drop / Daisy Chain configuration

In this example, the EOTec 2000 nodes at the extreme ends of the network include:

The other EOTec 2000 node(s) on the network include:

Star configuration

In this example, the central EOTec 2000 node includes:

Four (4) EOTec Fiber Optic Interface Modules, one (1) EOTec Electrical Interface Module, plus an EOTec Power Supply Module.

Each of the EOTec 2000 satellite nodes use one (1) EOTec Fiber Optic Interface Module, one (1) EOTec Electrical Interface Module, plus an EOTec Power Supply Module.

Up to five optical modules can be cascaded in one modem node to establish an optical star network system

Self-Healing Ring

Note: In an EOTec 2000 Self-Healing Ring Topology, you can only have one (1) Electrical Interface Module per node.
