Industrial Serial to Fiber Media Converter: IFC-Serial-PRO


1x RS485 to 1-port Fiber (SC/ST) Media Converter, support PROFIBUS

IFC-Serial-PRO is a serial over fiber converter that is capable of selecting interface modes for connection to RS-485 2-wire half duplex and supports high-speed data rates of PROFIBUS. Fiber optical cabling extends distances and isolates from EMC/noise to reduce interference between PROFIBUS devices. The terminal block offers an alarm relay contact and two redundant DC power inputs. IFC -Serial-PRO is also available in two operating temperature ranges, a standard -10° to 60°C commercial temperature range and an extended -40° to 75°C range, making it is reliable and an ideal solution for keeping your industrial automation applications running smoothly and continuously even in harsh environments. IFC-Serial-PRO is protocol transparent, and can be applied to PROFIBUS and other networks using RS485 interfaces (See Figure 1).

  • Supports 1x Fiber and 1x RS485
  • Extend serial transmission distance up to 500m, 2km, 20km
  • Supports fiber port point to point (Figure 3)
  • Redundant dual power inputs (12/24/48VDC)
  • Protocol transparent. These products can be applied to the PROFIBUS, but also can be applied to other network using RS485 interface
  • CE, FCC, heavy industrial grade EMS, EMI, EN61000-6-2, EN61000-6-4 certified
  • Supports relay output for power or link failure warning
  • Hardened housing with IP30 protection
  • Fanless and DIN-Rail design for harsh industrial environment
