Antaira Introduces New High Performance Serial to Fiber Converter Series (STF-501C & STF-502C Series)
Antaira is proud to build upon it's serial product family with a new high performance series of Industrial Serial to Fiber converters. The STF-500C series is built to withstand industrial networking hazards like shock, drop, vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and temperature extremes. Version options in a standard 0 ~ 60°C model range or an extended -40 ~ 75°C range are available. It secures asynchronous RS-232, RS-485 or RS-422 serial data transmissions over EMI resistant fiber at speeds up to 1024kbps.
This serial to fiber converter series provides Single (STF-501C series) or Dual (STF-502C series) Fiber Port models with SC or ST type fiber options in Multi-mode 2Km, or Single-mode 30Km solutions. These serial to fiber industrial media converters were designed with Advanced Features to provide High Performance solutions to customers, including:
Data Protection: *Built-in RS485 auto detection feature *15KV ESD Protection and 2.5KV Isolation protection *10 position Rotary Switch for RS422/485 Pull high/low feature. Secure Serial Network: *STF-501C model supports Point-to-Point application, One Way Daisy Chain, and ring topology Fiber Network in Half Duplex solutions STF-502C model supports Applications such as: -Point-to-Point solutions with Single Duplex Fiber connection (without Protection), or Dual Duplex Fiber connection (with Fiber Protection) - Daisy Chain solution with Duplex Fiber connection - Full Duplex Redundancy Serial Fiber Network with Dual Fiber connections Easy Maintenance: *STF-500C series supports relay output for power or link failure warning *Front LED indicators will allow user to easily monitor for any Power, TD/RD, or Fiber Link failure.
Key Features: *Media conversion for Serial RS232, or 422/485 into Fiber *Extend serial transmission distance up to 2km, 30km *Supports Point-to-Point, fiber daisy chain or ring topology network design *Secure Serial Fiber Network with Single or Dual Duplex Fiber connection *3 way Optical Isolation up to 2.5KV for serial signal protection *Dual Fiber Redundant Serial Fiber Ring Network support *Fan-less and DIN-Rail design for harsh industrial environments *Adjustable pull high/low resistor and terminator for RS-422/485 transmission *Dual Redundant Power Input
Applications Include: *High Serial Isolation Protection for Outdoor Equipment data extension in ITS Signaling, or VMS Dual Fiber Ring Redundancy Serial Network in Firm Alarm Panel control *EMI resistant for IEDs data transmission in Substation Automation *Industrial Control in Process Control Automation, such as WWTP and Oil/Gas/Mining Interested in learning more about a network redundancy with ring topologies - check out our redundant fiber optic blog.
