Fiber Interface Repeaters for standardized fieldbus protocols


Fieldbuses transmit relatively small amounts of data over large distances quickly and reliably. However, as a result of various legacy systems, there is a wide diversity of protocols and standards in use all over the world. The table below will help in narrowing your selection to find the right high-quality optical fiber cable modules for your systems.

  • Ideal for use in real-time control networks that extend across long distances
  • Easy monitoring with signal strength outputs, LEDs for link status and data transfer activity
  • Failsafe communications with built-in ring redundancy
  • Reliable operation through redundant 24 Volt power supply inputs
  • Electrical/optical Interface converters for
    - PROFIBUS field bus networks
    - Genius fieldbus networks
    - Modbus Plus fieldbus networks
    - RS 485 fieldbus networks
  • Seamless integration with process control systems using signal strength outputs
  • Fault signaling with built-in relay for an independent alarm line
  • Variants for singlemode, multimode and plastic fiber
