Data Converters feature protective optical isolation.

Available for RS-232 and RS-422/485 data circuits, I-linx stand-alone optical isolators in industrial DIN rail mount cases offer 2,000 V protection. Converters change RS-232 format data signals to RS-422 for increased range, or RS-485 for increased range and multi-drop capability. Model FOSTCDRI converts RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 to transmit over fiber optic cable, which allows range up to 2.5...
