SF63 Series

SF63 Series

Industrial Serial to Fiber Media Converter

  • Supports Multi-mode 2KM, Single-mode 30KM
  • PTP and Ring mode for serial fiber ring communication
  • Supports RS-485 120 ohm line terminator
  • Supports RS-485 Data signals pull high/low resister
  • Supports input voltage 9 ~ 48VDC
  • -40 ~ 70°C Wide range of operating temperature for hazardous environment applications

The SF63 Industrial Serial to Fiber Media Converter Series provide industrial conversion between 100BaseFX(SC or ST connector), RS-232, and RS-422/485; connection options include multi-mode SC/ST connector (2km), and single- mode SC/ST connector (30km). The SF63 Serial to Fiber Media Converter is designed for harsh industrial environments, and complies with FCC/CE standards.
