Data transmission via copper cables is quickly reaching its limitations in industrial environments. Media converters from Phoenix Contact enable you to convert your copper-based interfaces to interference-free fiber optics without the need for costly surge protection, shielding, and equipotential bonding measures. Modular media converters from the PSI-MOS product range have been designed for maximum transmission security and system availability in industrial applications. PSI-MOS can be used for all commonly used transmission systems.

Your advantages

  • Integrated optical diagnostics via bar graph display
  • Early warning alarm issued in the event of a drop in transmission quality, with floating switch contact
  • Use in potentially explosive areas approved for zone 2
  • Modular station structure: automatic cross-wiring via DIN rail
  • Maximum transmission distances with an extremely high data rate, thanks to fiber optic technology

Media converters for Profibus

Media converters for Profibus

Media converters from the PSI-MOS product range enable you to convert copper-based Profibus interfaces for fiber optics (FO). A transparent protocol is used to convert all data rates up to 12 Mbps.

This provides important advantages for you:

  • Automatic data rate detection or fixed data rate setting via DIP switches
  • Integrated optical diagnostics for continuous monitoring of fiber optic paths
  • High quality electrical isolation between all interfaces
  • Bit retiming for any cascading depth
  • Can be combined with the PSI copper repeater in a modular configuration using DIN rail connectors
  • Intrinsically safe fiber optic interface (Ex op is) for direct connection to devices in zone 1

Media converters for CANopen and DeviceNet

Media converters for CANopen and DeviceNet

You can use media converters to network CANopen and DeviceNet fieldbus systems easily and without interference via fiber optics.

This provides important advantages for you:

  • Integrated optical diagnostics for continuous monitoring of fiber optic paths
  • Floating switch contact for early warning of critical states in the fiber optic paths
  • High quality electrical isolation between all interfaces
  • Combine FO converters with copper repeaters for pure copper connections. What's more, you can use DIN rail connectors to create a modular hub.

Media converter for RS-232 connections

Media converter for RS-232 as end device and T-coupler

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:

  • Longer transmission distances
  • Elimination of EMC influences
  • Integrated optical diagnostics for continuous monitoring of fiber optic paths
  • Floating switch contact for early warning alarms in respect of critical fiber optic paths
  • High quality electrical isolation between all interfaces
  • Intrinsically safe fiber optic interface (Ex op is) for direct connection to devices in zone 1
