To extend your serial connections over secure, interference-free fibre optic media, order BLACK BOX® FlexPoint RS-232 to Fibre Converters.
Ideal for extending links to RS-232 equipment such as controllers, modems, and terminals in industrial networking or office applications, these fibre converters feature baud-rate autosensing at speeds up to 115.2 kbps and, for user flexibility, support half- or full-duplex modes of operation.
With the multimode versions, you can extend RS-232 data up to 2.5 kilometres (1.5 mi.) or 5 kilometres (3.1 mi.). For extra range, such as in long-haul fibre applications, order the single-mode models. Depending on the models ordered, they support long-distance links as as far as 58 kilometres (36 mi.)
Connecting a serial device is easy. Just attach the RS-232 port via a male DB9 serial cable to the RS-232 equipment. The FlexPoint RS-232 to Fibre Converters also feature switch-selectable DTE/DCE configuration. When connecting the RS-232 cable to data terminal equipment such as a computer or controller, you just flip up the DTE switch. And when you need to link to data communication equipment, such as a modem or printer, you just flip down the DCE switch.
