Linear Central Station Receivers
« on: January 20, 2006, 06:30:06 PM »
Here's one for ya!  I was asked a question concerning Linear 3200 Central Station receivers.  The understanding is they have a RS232 converter plugged into the rear of the receiver converting signals from either CAT5 or fiber.  Not sure.
They want to upgrade this old receiver.  They have purchased an Osbourn-Hoffman OH2000E (?) for replacement.

How would the existing configuration (RS232)
be upgraded to todays connections?

After 25 years in the field, I must admit, my knowledge of Central Stations, and its equipment is weak at best!

It should have it's own incorporated input connections and shouldn't need any addiitonal non manufacturer's parts.  if you have a non standard input connection that has to be modified to the reciver, the pinning depends on of the old setup was DTE or DCE.
