FO media converters for Ethernet and fieldbus enable you to convert your copper interfaces to interference-free fiber optics without the need for complex surge protection, shielding, and equipotential bonding measures.
The class 1000 Ethernet media converters are designed for applications with basic requirements. They provide an easy and cost-effective entry-level solution for converting to FO technology in industrial Ethernet networks.
The FL MC 2000T series devices can be switched between standard store-and-forward mode with auto negotiation and pass-through operating mode. This makes it possible to achieve very short delays (latency) of 835 nanoseconds. These devices are therefore ideal for applications with time-critical Ethernet protocols such as PROFINET IRT, Powerlink, EtherCAT, and Sercos III. They also offer:
The FL MC EF WDM media converters provide a full duplex FO connection with just one optical fiber. These devices are ideally suited to rotating applications with optical slip rings, such as in wind turbine generators. Here, they connect the rotating hub and the motor nacelle. With the WDM media converters, it is now possible to connect optical slip rings using a single fiber. These are several times more cost-effective than slip rings with multiple fibers.
With ATEX and DNV approvals, the FL MC EF1300 versions are particularly suited to process industry, wind power, and shipbuilding applications. With single-mode fiberglass, you can achieve transmission ranges of up to 36 km.
FL MC 2000E media converters are suited to applications in accordance with IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613.
Media converters from the PSI-MOS product range enable you to convert copper-bound PROFIBUS interfaces for fiber optics (FO). A transparent protocol is used to convert all data rates up to 12 Mbps. This gives you important advantages:
You can use media converters to network CANopen® and DeviceNet™ fieldbus systems easily and without interference via fiber optics. This gives you important advantages:
RS-232 interfaces are very susceptible to EMC influences and potential differences. The transmission distances are too short. Use media converters from Phoenix Contact to convert your serial interface to fiber optics. This gives you important advantages:
