ok so that means you connect the fiber to the back of a rs232 connector and you plug it into where you need to?O111111O said:Exactly that.
RS-232 is a serial [now legacy] data connection. Used for many many many years. RS-232 and RS-422 are still used in many areas including industrial applications.
Years ago I installed an RS232/422 interface via fiber for SCADA controllers. This was done in an area where there was WAY too much EMI/RFI for copper, and the distance was long. [It was an aluminum refinery.]
LuxLink, Blackbox, Alcatel, many other companies still make the interfaces.
Oh wow, do you have a website of your company?O111111O said:Sorry, should have been more forthright.
System Control and Data Acquisition. Program interface was RS422 [similar to RS232], however the SCADA controller was about a mile away from the system it was gonna talk to.
SCADA's a fairly generic term, and is widely used. I still use SCADA today in datacenters to control machines such as chillers, pumps, generators, CRAC's, etc. Only difference is that 90% of it is Ethernet now.
