IFC-FDC and IFC-FDC-E are industrial grade fiber media converters that provide a dual fiber connection converter solution to extend asynchronous RS-232 or RS-422/485 transmission distance up to 2km over multimode fiber or up to 60km over single mode fiber. The dual fiber inputs allow connecting multiple devices in a cascade or "daisy chain" fashion as well as creating ring architecture for fiber redundancy. The converter is equipped with multiple interface circuits for connection to RS-232 or RS-422/485 (2 or 4 wire, full or half duplex). The IFC-FDC-E secures data transmission over EMI resistant fiber at speeds up to 1024kbps for RS-232 and RS-485/422. The IFC-FDC-E reliable industrial design is suitable for keeping your industrial automation applications running continuously. Each IFC-FDC-E media converter comes with two relay output alarms and two redundant DC power inputs to help prevent damage and loss. The IFC-FDC-E media converter is available in models that support operating temperatures of 0 to 60°C or -40 to 70°C.
