Abstract:

This test operations procedure TOP delineates general test and specific subtest procedures required to measure the technical performance of Signal Converters. Comparison of test results with criteria and technical specifications permits evaluation of their suitability for an intended use. Signal Converters are required to effect overall signaling compatibility in the many types and combinations of communication facilities, systems and associated signaling schemes comprising a military network. This TOP is limited to tests outlined herein, which are applicable only to signal converters whose principal purpose is to alter the form of telephone or telegraph functional signals having dissimilar line or terminal signaling characteristics. Functional signals are defined as those employed in most communication circuits to operate signaling devices or switching equipment as opposed to the intelligence-bearing signals. Applicable common engineering test TOPs are listed but not included.
