For the transmission of serial protocols (RS-232 / V.24, RS-422 / V.11, RS-485) via a fiber optic link, MICROSENS offers special insertion modules for the MSP800 platform.
The serial protocols are used to couple devices, switchgear and machine controls with standardized serial interfaces. Depending on the protocol, the MICROSENS media converter is used in pairs and transmits the signals via fiber optics. Distances of up to 120km can be achieved without a repeater using a powerful single-mode optical system.
Special converters for RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 interfaces are available. The RS-485 transmitter is compatible with various industrial fieldbus systems such as Profibus, Bitbus, Interbus.
The conversion is transparent, this means the data rate to be transmitted doesn´t have to be adapted.
The converter is always used in pairs and can be paired with the converters from the Profi Line series. This allows a classic central/decentral connection in star-shaped network topologies.
