Use this line driver to connect RS-232, RS-485, or Current Loop devices. You can configure the line driver in any of three modes: network, master/slave, or full-duplex, point-to-point. Then you can monitor and control up to 64 industrial devices - time clocks, conveyor belts, even printers and controllers - all from one central site. Using the inherent benefits of fiber optic cable, you can completely automate your factory operations - just call Black Box!
You'll enjoy increased data speeds, too: up to 20 kbps for Current Loop, 64 kbps for RS-232, and 128 kbps for RS-485.
Choose from models with either ST or SMA connectors. It is recommend using 62.5-micron, multimode fiber optic cable. Of course, fiber optic cable eliminates the threat of power surges and the need for surge-protection equipment. And fiber cable is basically tamper proof, giving you extra security.
