Data sheet:

Interface - plastic fiber optic <> RS232 Industry, with handshake

  • FOC <> RS232 interface, Industry

PC connection over fiber-optic cables with handshake


General information:

  • Sending of the data lines RxD and TxD and the handshake lines RTS and CTS
  • No setting of the transmission parameters necessary
  • External supply also makes it suitable for low-power RS232 interfaces
  • Wide supply voltage range 12..24V AC/DC
  • Housing suitable for installation on top hat rails

Background information:

RS232 interfaces do not always supply the power necessary for smart solutions with supply voltage-free fiber-optic interfaces. Especially as regards the notebook interfaces, energy saving measures to extend the operating time can lead to a situation where the maximum fiber-optic transmission distance of 100 m is not always available. For such cases, the FOC <> RS232 interface, Industry, offers a solution by providing a separate power supply.
