The IFC-Serial Series are industrial grade fiber media converters that provide a rugged solution to extend asynchronous RS-232, RS-485or RS-422 serial transmissions over a distance of up to 2km using multimode fiber or up to 60km using single mode fiber. The converter iscapable of selecting interface modes for connection to RS-232 (3 or 5 wire), RS-485 (2 or 4 wire, half or full duplex) or RS-422 (4 wire, fullduplex). The IFC-Serial Series secures asynchronous serial data transmissions over EMI resistant fiber at speeds up to 1024kbps. IFC-SerialSeries media converters feature two alarm relay contacts and two redundant DC power inputs. The IFC-Serial Series reliable industrialdesign is perfect for keeping your industrial automation applications running smoothly and continuously. The IFC-Serial Series mediaconverters are available in two operating temperature ranges, a standard ° to 6°C model range or an extended -4° to 7°C range.


  • Wide temperature -4°C~7°C (IFC-SERIAL-E) or °C~6°C (IFC-SERIAL)
  • Extend serial transmission distance up to 2km, 30km, 60km
  • Redundant dual power inputs (12~48VDC)
  • Supports half-duplex ring application
  • Supports RS-232, RS-422, RS-485(2/4 wire) transmission to fiber connections.
  • Enhanced serial baudrate up to 1024kpbs
  • 2.5KV isolation for serial signal
  • Supports relay output for power or link failure warning
  • Hardened housing with IP30 protection
  • Fan-less and DIN-Rail design for harsh industrial environment
  • Adjustable pull high/low resistor and terminator for RS-422/485 transmission
