IFC Series are industrial grade serial/fiber converters that provide a single fiber or dual fiber connections to extend asynchronous RS-232, RS-485 or RS-422 serial transmissions over a distance of up to 2km using multi-mode fiber or up to 60km using single-mode fiber. The singleduplex fiber provides point-to-point connections and allows connecting multiple devices in a cascaded or "daisy chain" fashion. However, noredundancy is provided for the model with a single fiber and any single port failure can disable the entire ring. On the other hand, the dualfiber inputs not only allow connecting multiple devices in a cascade or "daisy chain" fashion but also can create ring architecture for fiberredundancy and auto recovery.
IFC Series converters are capable of selecting interface modes for connection to RS-232 (3 wire), RS-485 (2 wire, half duplex) or RS-422/485(4 wire, full duplex) and feature a three-way communication plus a second independent RS-232 communication channel. Additionally, theterminal block offers an alarm relay contact and two redundant DC power inputs. IFC Series converters are also available in two operatingtemperature ranges, a standard -10° to 60°C commercial temperature range and an extended -40° to 75°C range. With all these specificallydesignedfeatures, IFC Series are reliable and ideal solutions for keeping your industrial automation applications running smoothly andcontinuously even in harsh environments.
