EOTec 6000 to EOTec 2000 series Compatibility Reference Guide


The EOTec 6000 system lets you build a fiber optic network that supports popular PLC and Fieldbus devices. Using a modular set of rack mounted modules, the EOTec 6000 system can enhance and extend traditional “copper” based networks. The EOTec 6000 system consists of the following four (4) types of components:

Electrical Interface Modules (EIMs)

Electrical Interface Modules (EIMs)

Connect to your PLC devices and/or fieldbus networked equipment.
Fiber Optic Interface Modules (OIMs)

Fiber Optic Interface Modules (OIMs)

Build a fiber based network using Single Mode or Multi-Mode fiber cables in a variety of topologies.
Self Healing Ring Modules

Self Healing Ring Modules

Use this module in each fiber network node to build a self-healing ring for enhanced reliability.
Power Supply Modules

Power Supply Modules

Power supply modules are available with various AC and DC input capabilities, as well as a dual redundant power supply. The rack holds the electrical, optical and power supply modules. Each rack can hold one power supply, one electrical interface module and one to four optical or additional electrical interface modules. Inter-module communications and power distribution is handled by the backplane within the EOTec 6000 rack to minimize external wiring.
EOTec 6000 fiber optic network topologies

EOTec 6000 fiber optic network topologies

Each node can support up to five (5) EIMs or OIMs to suite the application. The EOTec system allows the user to build a fiber optic system that supports several network topologies, including:
  • Point-To-Point,
  • Daisy-Chain,
  • Self-Healing Ring,
  • Star, or a basic
  • Optical Repeater
