VLF232 - Fiber to RS232 Bidirectional Converter / Repeater


Product Description

Multimode Fiber to RS232 Bidirectional Full duplex serial converter or Half duplex repeater.

  • This versatile Fiber/RS232 unit will function as a full duplex master bidirectional converter from Fiber to RS232.
  • Configured as a half duplex fiber repeater, the RS232 port is a tap point to monitor data activity.

  • Transparent to all asynchronous data, with any combination of data, parity, and stop bits, at data rates up to 115.2 Kbps. No Jumpers or settings required.

  • The RS232 driver, provides communications at 100ft/9600bps, to 10ft/115.2Kbps.

  • Optimized for non-isolated office/indoor point to point or multi-drop systems.

  • Jumper J1, in position B-C, puts the unit into test mode when used with a loopback cable.

  • Edge mounted LEDs display power, data activity at the fiber interface, and the RS232 receive port.

  • Broad environmental range. 0C to +70C, reduced functionallity -40 to 85C. 10 to 90% RH(non-condensing)

  • Four(4) easy mount through hole standoffs, which accept #6 hardware, are provided on the circuit board.

  • User connections are a pair of fiber optic connectors, a 3 position location for Wago type or pin header, and a 2.1mm barrel connector or 2 pin terminal strip. Contact us for help in selecting connector types.

  • The fiber cable used with the installed connectors is a rugged 1mm low cost plastic type intended for limited distances of minimum 125 ft, typical 225 ft.

  • The onboard linear regulator accepts a source supply providing 8 to 15 VDC at 30 to 50 mA.

  • Accessories available are a 12VDC Switching Power Supply(Wall Wart), and an Enclosure.

  • Conformal Coating, cable, and connectors, are factory options. Contact us for options help.

  • WARNING: Do NOT connect this device to a telephone system under any circumstances. Damage could result to the circuit board and/or your telephone system.

  • R E Smith Inc makes a wide variety of isolated converters that address the electrical noise problems that contribute to unreliable communications, and product failure.  If what you see here is not exactly what you need, don't hesitate in calling us at 513-874-4796.

  • We also have a new series of Converters and Repeaters that extend the RS485 communications distance far beyond conventional limits. Contact us for information on these leading edge problem solvers.
