CRP/1V – RS232-glass fiber converter – Mains voltage

0,00 

CRP/1V is an industrial optical-electrical converter, RS232 to synthetic optical fiber with screw connector, powered by mains voltage 230 V supply.

It accepts the standard 230 V mains voltage, and it is completely Plug&Play, since it does not need any driver nor DIP switch. This RS232 serial converter is Full Duplex and it automatically detects the transmission data rate up to 250 kbps, so it can be easily installed in any new or existing network.

Thanks to its compact 2-module DIN rail housing, it can be easily mounted in an electrical panel.

Description

CRP/1V is an industrial optical-electrical converter, RS232 to glass optical fiber with Bayonet connector, powered by mains voltage 230 V supply. It can be used to increase the transmission distance of a serial communication, or to isolate different branches of a network. Thanks to its compact 2-module DIN rail housing, it can be easily mounted in an electrical panel. It accepts the standard 230 V mains voltage, and it is completely Plug&Play, since it does not need any driver nor DIP switch. This RS232 serial converter is Full Duplex and it automatically detects the transmission data rate up to 250 kbps, so it can be easily installed in any new or existing network.

 

Use cases

Optical-electrical converters are typically used to integrate a section of optical fiber in a RS232 mains voltage network, in order to increase the transmission distance. They isolate the different branches of a network from electromagnetical interferences (EMI) and voltage surges, like the different floors of a hotel, or various branches of a solar power system. Electromagnetical interferences are fairly common in these environments, so it is good practice to integrate two or more optical-electrical converter to guarantee signal integrity. Furthermore, there are environments where electrical devices are strictly forbidden, such as pools, saunas, fire-risk buildings, so optical fiber is mandatory.

 

Versatility

Optical-electrical converters are available with different combinations of serial standard and optical fiber, or powered by AC and DC low voltage. CRP/1Q and CRP/1S converters for example accept synthetic optical fiber with VersaLink connector, or glass optical fiber with Bayonet connector, respectively. CFP/1V and CMP/1V are suitable for different serial standards, that is RS422 and RS485. Industrial serial converter CRM/1V is functionally identical to CRP/1V, but it is powered by AC and DC low voltage. Every combination of serial standard, optical fiber, and power supply, is however available, while special requests (such as higher data rates) can be made via the contact form.
