STF-500C Industrial Serial-To-Fiber converters

Anaheim, CA – Oct 11, 2013 – Antaira Technologies is a leading developer of Industrial Networking and Device connectivity solutions for harsh environment applications and is proud to be expanding its Serial product family with a new series of Industrial Serial-To-Fiber converters.  The STF-500C series is designed to isolate and protect connected equipment from surges, spikes and electrostatic discharges carried on the serial cable to the fiber optic cable.

 

The STF-500C series is built to withstand industrial networking hazards like shock, drop, vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and temperature extremes. Version options in a standard 0 ~ 60°C model range or an extended -40 ~ 75°C range are available. It secures asynchronous RS-232, RS-485 or RS-422 serial data transmissions over EMI resistant fiber at speeds up to 1024kbps.

 

This series provides Single (STF-501C series) or Dual (STF-502C series) Fiber Port models  with SC or ST type fiber options in Multi-mode 2Km, or Single-mode 30Km solutions. It is designed with Advanced Features to provide High Performance solutions to customers, including:

 

  • Data Protection:
    • Built-in RS485 auto detection feature
    • 15KV ESD Protection and 2.5KV Isolation protection
    • 10 position Rotary Switch for RS422/485 Pull high/low feature.
  • Secure Serial Network:
    • STF-501C model supports Point-to-Point application, One Way Daisy Chain, and Ring Topology Fiber Network in Half Duplex solutions
    • STF-502C model supports Applications such as:
      • Point-to-Point solutions with Single Duplex Fiber connection (without Protection), or Dual Duplex Fiber connection (with Fiber Protection)
      • Daisy Chain solution with Duplex Fiber connection
      • Full Duplex Redundancy Serial Fiber Network with Dual Fiber connections
  • Easy Maintenance:
    • STF-500C series supports relay output for power or link failure warning
    • Front LED indicators will allow user to easily monitor for any Power, TD/RD, or Fiber Link failure.

 

 

Key Features:

  • Media conversion for Serial RS232, or 422/485 into Fiber
  • Extend serial transmission distance up to 2km, 30km
  • Supports Point-to-Point, fiber daisy chain or ring topology  network design
  • Secure Serial Fiber Network with Single or Dual Duplex Fiber connection
  • 3 way Optical Isolation up to 2.5KV for serial signal protection
  • Dual Fiber Redundant Serial Fiber Ring Network support
  • Fan-less and DIN-Rail design for harsh industrial environments
  • Adjustable pull high/low resistor and terminator for RS-422/485 transmission
  • Dual Redundant Power Input

 

Applications include:

  • High Serial Isolation Protection for Outdoor Equipment data extension in ITS Signaling, or VMS
  • Dual Fiber Ring Redundancy Serial Network in Firm Alarm Panel control
  • EMI resistant for IEDs data transmission in Substation Automation
  • Industrial Control in Process Control Automation, such as WWTP and Oil/Gas/Mining
