Serial Converter and Repeaters

Serial Media Converter and Repeaters provide conversion between serial networks and other media. Our Serial Converters can transparently convert RS-232 signals to RS-422/485 signals, as well as wireless and fiber optic signals. Most industrial computer systems come with standard RS-232 serial ports. Though widely accepted, RS-232 has limited transmission speed, range and networking capabilities. The RS-422/485 standards overcome these limitations by using differential voltage lines for data and

  • RS-422/485 Repeaters

    RS-422/RS-485 repeaters overcome the limitations of standard serial ports by using differential voltage lines for data and control signals. RS-422 and RS-485 serial repeaters simply amplify, or boost, existing RS-422/RS-485 signals to enable them to cover longer distances. They extend the communication distance by 1200m (4,000 ft.) and increases the maximum number of connected nodes by 32.

  • RS-232/422/485 Converters

    Serial media converters provide conversion between serial networks and other media. They can transparently convert RS-232 signals to RS-422/485 signals, as well as convert RS-422/485 to RS-232 signals without changing the PC's hardware or software. The serial media converters let you easily build an industrial grade, long distance communication system with standard PC hardware.

  • RS-232/422/485 to Fiber Optic Converters

    The fiber optic converter, include Multi-mode & Single-mode Fiber Optic, is 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 protect
