Fiber Optic Converter
eliable data transmission is important
850 nm or 1300 nm LED R especially in industrial areas.
Transmission interference or system
Due to this modular design
transmission distances of up to 30 km
can be achieved.
Singlemode: failures lead to the risk of higher costs,
1300 nm or 1550 nm which can be reduced to a minimum by The units are available as standalone
implementing fiber optic. Using fiber units, for top hat rail mounting or for
Interfaces: optic technology guarantees galvanic installation in a 19” rack.
RS485, RS422 and RS232 separation of connected devices,
immunity to electromagnetic
Transmission distance: interferences and lightning currents.
Max. 30 km Fiber optic technology is characterized
by high data rates and long
Data rate: transmission distances (without the use
Up to 128 Kbps of repeaters).
WDM Fiber Doubler (Option) The Fiber Optic Converter converts
electrical data signals into light signals,
Standalone, top hat rail transfers them transparently via optical
mounting or rack mount version fiber and reconverts them at the opposite
The modems of this product group
transfer asynchronous data with a
maximum speed of 128 Kbps. The
standard interfaces used in the industry
can be transformed by the MDSP serie:
RS485, RS422 and RS232. The Fiber
Optic Modem FC-A is designed for
different cable types (multimode /
singlemode) and LED components.
