Extend your PROFIBUS Networks over Fiber Optic Cable
Distributed Industrial Control systems are placing increasing demands on data communications. When it comes to PROFIBUS twisted-pair copper cables are a proven technology, but they can limit communication speed and distance.
Fiber Optic Media Converters allow PROFIBUS connections to be extended beyond traditional copper based installations, providing total isolation, protection against EMI/RFI interference, and freedom from equipment grounding problems.
To minimize downtime in expansive installations, Moxa has introduced built-in diagnostics tools to diagnose communications issues. From any connected media converter, the integrity of the whole network can be validated by just 1 person.
