RS485 to Fiber Converters
RS485 to Fiber Converters are industrial-grade design and can convert RS-232/422/485 to optical fiber, making communication between RS-232/422/485 devices easier. RS485 to Fiber Converters are used as an RS-232/422/485 point-to-point or point-to-multipoint connection for transmitting and converting full/half-duplex signals and their equivalents within a fiber optics environment.
This kind of transmission offers the benefits of wide bandwidth, immunity to EMI/RFI interference, and secured data transmission. Fiber optics will be your perfect solution for applications where the transmission medium must be protected from electrical exposure, lightning, atmospheric conditions or chemical corrosion.
With a pair of these serial to fiber converters, any two pieces of asynchronous serial equipment can communicate at half or full duplex over two fibers at rates up to 460 kbps for RS-422/485 or 115.2 kbps for RS-232. Fiber lines are inherently resistant to EMI/RFI and transient surges, so they are ideal for data communications near heavy electrical equipment and other electrical or radio interference. These point-to-point RS485 to Fiber Converters come with the options of multi-mode (extend distance up to 5km) and single-mode (extend distance up to 40 km), and ST, SC, and FC connectors.
