Industrial Serial to Fiber Media Converter: IFC-Serial


1x RS232/422/485 to 1-port Fiber (SC/ST) Media Converter

The IFC-Serial media converter is a capable of selecting interface mode for connection to RS-232 (3 wire), RS-485 (2 wire, half duplex) or RS-422/485 (4 wire, full duplex) and features 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-Serial 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. With all these specifically designed features, IFC-Serial is a reliable and ideal solution 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.
