EOTec 6000 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 6000 node includes:

Point to Point configuration

In this example, each EOTec 6000 node includes:

Linear Drop / Daisy Chain configuration

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

The other node(s) on the network include:

Star configuration

In this example, the central EOTec 6000 node includes:

Four (4) EOTecĀ  Fiber Optic Interface Modules, one (1) EOTec Electrical Interface Module, plus an EOTec 6000 Rack & Power Supply Module.

Each of the EOTec 6000 satellite nodes use one (1) EOTec Fiber Optic Interface Modules, one (1) EOTec Electrical Interface Module, plus an EOTec 6000 Rack & Power Supply Module.

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

Self-Healing Ring

In this example, one node will be configured as a Master Node and all the other will be configured as Slave Nodes on the ring.

Each EOTec Slave Node includes:

The one Master Node will include:

Note: The Master Node is not allowed to have an Electrical Interface Module and the Slave Nodes can have only one (1) Electrical Interface Module.
