The RIO fibre optic (FOLK) kit allows you to extend the range of a RIO link via fibre optic cable to a distance of up to one kilometre. The kit comprises two fibre optic modules. Each module consists of a 1metre long RIO link cable connected to a fibre optic converter. The fibre optic cable plugs into one of these converters at each end. For details on how to install this unit, see the installation chapter in the RIO User Guide 5500036.pdf
The RIO Long Distance Module (LDM) allows you to extend your RIO system via a leased line. Using a RIO Long Distance Module you can make connections can over thousands of miles using synchronous (X.21/X.21bis) or asynchronous interfaces. The LDM is specifically designed for use on high-speed synchronous connections. Slower, asynchronous speeds are only recommended for low throughput applications. The LDM consists of two Long Distance Units (LDUs). Each unit comprises a converter box with flying leads.One LDU connects your local host card or RTA to a modem, the other connects the remote RTA to a modem. You can configure the speed and protocol using a dial on the LDU.
