Details

The FBR-Serial-2 (MM / FC) is a multi-mode (MM), rugged, industrial-grade, multi-function RS232 / RS422 / RS485 to fiber optic converter that supports asynchronous RS232 / RS422 / RS485 communications through point-to-point fiber optic links. The FBR-Serial-2 works in pair (point to point) and it runs on light-speed fiber backbone which inherently resistant to radio and electrical interference, such as EMI / RFI, lightning, transient surges, and ground loops. This industrial Serial-to-Fiber-Optic converter supports multi-drop RS485 / RS422 networks and can be used to communicate with up to 128 nodes of RS485 / RS422 devices. It operates within a temperature range of -40ºF to 185ºF (-40ºC to 85ºC), and features 600W surge protection, 15kV ESD static protection, and data format auto-sensing and self-adjusting. No DIP switch, jumper settings or software drivers are required for this device. The FBR-Serial-2 (MM/FC) fiber optic converter can extend the RS232 / RS422 / RS485 distance to 3 miles (5 km). Standards can be mixed and matched, so RS-232 devices can be connected to RS485 / RS422 devices, or RS485 (2-wire) devices can be connected to RS422 (4-wire) devices without using a converter and isolator. The FBR-Serial-2 (MM / FC) comes with FC connectors for fiber optic links, and, thanks to the professional and unique casing design, the product can be mounted directly on a wall, panel, rack or DIN Rail, without a need of using any unsecured DIN-Rail or wall-mount brackets. A separate external power supply is included in the package.

Features

  • Standards can be mixed and matched (same data type; one side RS232 and the other side RS485 or RS422; one side RS485 and the other side RS422, etc.).
  • Industrial grade enclosed in a rugged, rustless ABS housing.
  • Supports serial data rates from 300 to 115,200bps.
  • Supports multi-drop RS485 / RS422 networks (up to 128 nodes).
  • Direct DIN-Rail (Rack) or Wall / Panel mounting without using unsecured brackets.
  • Plug and play (hot-pluggable; data format auto-sensing and self-adjusting).
  • Data direction auto-turnaround.
  • No software drivers, DIP switch or jumper settings required.
  • Multi-mode with FC connectors.
  • Supports a wide range of fiber optic cables.
  • Operating temperature: -40ºF to 185ºF (-40ºC to 85ºC).
  • Built-in 600W surge protection, 15kV static protection and circuit protection.
  • Surface Mount Technology manufactured to RoHS and ISO-9001 standards.
  • Safety: Strictly certified by TUV (Cert No. SG-CE-100005; SG-FCC-100002).
  • 5-year manufacturer's warranty.
