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 control signals. Advantech’s Serial Media Converter and Repeaters with sophisticated industry technique offer more efficiency of transmit for you.

  • 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 protected from electrical exposure, lightning, atmospheric conditions or chemical corrosion.
