Antaira STF-401C Serial to Fiber Converter Series Receives Honorable Mention from 2015 "Engineers' Choice Awards" Program
We are pleased to announce that the STF-401C Series has received an Honorable Mention in the Network Integration — Network Hardware category of the 2015 Control Engineering Engineers’ Choice Awards. Control Engineering, awarded products in 26 categories of control instrumentation, and automation products introduced in 2014, as chosen by print and online subscribers.
The STF-401C series is designed to protect connected serial equipment from surges, spikes and electrostatic discharges carried. Most industrial automation applications require serial equipment data information from distant remote areas, and due to the restriction of up to 1.2 Km in the serial data transmission within copper wiring, Antaira's STF-401C serial to fiber converter series secures asynchronous RS-232, RS-485, or RS-422 serial data transmissions over EMI resistant fiber at speeds up to 921.6 Kbps with distance extension in 100 MBit Fiber transmission up to 2 km in multimode fiber, or 30 km in single mode models.
Antaira's STF-401C serial to fiber converter series is built to withstand industrial networking hazards like shock, drop, vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and temperature extremes. A fan-less and IP50 rated metal casing design allow this product series to provide non-stop operating under wide temperature ranges within - 40 to 70 C. The mean time between failure of this series is up to 216,388 hours. In addition, the built-in 120 ohm resistor and terminator enhances the RS-485 signal strength power consumption of 2.5 W, and the power input range can be between 9 and 48 VDC.
With its compact size design, the STF-401C serial to fiber converter series is a perfect solution for either Point-to-Point, or half-duplex single ring topology Serial Fiber Daisy Chain Network applications, such as an industrial manufacturing plant in Factory Automation, remote sensing and signaling/metering in ITS (Intelligent Transportation System), and EMI resistance for IED (Intelligent Electronic Device) data transmission in Power Substation Automation.
"Innovative solutions such as the STF-401C Series make manufacturing and other control engineering applications more efficient through smart applications of new technologies. Investments in the best products and software can help solve the most pressing challenges in automation, control, and instrumentation. Continuous improvements among leading technology providers ensure that manufacturers, machine builders, and automation system integrators can achieve the levels of agility, efficiency, and effectiveness necessary to compete—and win—in today’s global economy" said Mark T. Hoske, Control Engineering’s content manager.
