RS-232/422/485 (Daisy Chain) Fiber Converter

Serial Fiber Converter - RS-232/422/485 (Daisy Chain)

These converters are capable of selecting interface modes for connection to RS-232 (3 wire), RS-485 (2 wire, half duplex) or RS-422/485 (4 wire, full duplex) and feature a three-way communication plus a second independent RS-232 communication channel. Additionally, the terminal block offers an alarm relay contact and two redundant DC power inputs. IFC Series converters are also available in two operating temperature ranges, a standard -10° to 60°C commercial temperature range and an extended -40° to 75°C range. With all these specifically designed features, IFC Series are reliable and ideal solutions for keeping your industrial automation applications running smoothly and continuously even in harsh environments. The product is protocol transparent that can be applied to RS485/422/232 networks, such as MODBUS to achieve reliable network (See Figure 2).
