Product description
The IFC-Serial Series are industrial grade fiber media converters that provide a rugged solution to extend asynchronous RS-232, RS-485 or RS-422 serial transmissions over a distance of up to 2km using multimode fiber or up to 60km using single mode fiber. The converter is capable of selecting interface modes for connection to RS-232 (3 or 5 wire), RS-485 (2 or 4 wire, half or full duplex) or RS-422 (4 wire, full duplex). The IFC-Serial Series secures asynchronous serial data transmissions over EMI resistant fiber at speeds up to 1024kbps. IFC-Serial Series media converters feature two alarm relay contacts and two redundant DC power inputs. The IFC-Serial Series reliable industrial design is perfect for keeping your industrial automation applications running smoothly and continuously. The IFC-Serial Series media converters are available in two operating temperature ranges, a standard -10° to 60°C model range or an extended -40° to 75°C range.
