Product Description

The IFC-Serial is an industrial grade fiber media converter that provides a fiber connection 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 duplex fiber provides point-topoint connections. Single fiber simplex connections allow connecting multiple devices in a cascaded or “daisy chain” fashion with a single fiber ring architecture. However, no redundancy is provided and any break can disable the entire ring. The converter is 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). IFC-Serial Series media converters feature an alarm relay contact 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) commercial temperature range or an extended (-40° to 75°C) range.

Features:

  • Supports dual channel communication, including Triple-Way communication and Two-Way communication
  • Extend serial transmission distance up to 2km, 30km, 60km
  • Redundant dual power inputs (12 ~ 48VDC)
  • Supports half-duplex ring application
  • Supports RS-232, RS-422, RS-485(2/4 wire) transmission to fiber connections
  • Wide Temperature -40 ~ 75°C (IFC-Serial-E)
  • Enhanced serial baudrate up to 1024kpbs
  • 2.5KV isolation for serial signal
  • Supports relay output for power or link failure warning
  • Hardened housing with IP30 protection
  • Fan-less and DIN-Rail design for harsh industrial environment
  • Adjustable pull high/low resistor and terminator for RS-422/485 transmission
