Single Mode RS232 to Fiber Optic Converter

Model 232-FIBER-SM

Category: Fiber Optic Media Converters

DESCRIPTION

The 232-FIBER-SM is an industrial grade bi-directional externally powered full-duplex RS232 to Single Mode Fiber Optic Converter which converts a standard full-duplex RS232 transceiver to a Single Mode SC or ST connector type fiber optic link. A data direction auto-turnaround feature automatically enables the RS-232 transmit and receive data signals when data is present, avoiding the need for software drivers, and making the device fully plug-and-play. The 232-FIBER-SM has a DB9 connector for the RS232 serial port, and either an ST type or SC type connector for the fiber optic link. The unit extends the maximum distance of any RS232 signal up 12.4 miles (20 km) using SM fiber optic cable. The unit is enclosed in a rugged steel housing. An external power supply is included. This converter operates from 300 to 120K bps.

Using one 232-FIBER-SM unit:

  1. Perform a loop back test on one unit:
    1. Plug the power connector to the converter.  Both the PWR light and RX light should be on.
    2. Connect the fiber optic in to fiber optic out.  Only the PWR light should be lit.
    3. Connect the RS-232 port to the PC RS-232 port.
    4. Running a hyper terminal program on the PC, send ASCII characters to the 232-FIBER-SM converter from one PC port, and check that the characters are received at the same PC port. This tests that the transmit and receive functions of the 232-FIBER-SM unit is working properly.
    5. When data is transmitting to the converter the TX light should blink and when the converter is receiving data the RX light should blink.

Using two 232-FIBER-SM units:

  1. Check that all connections comply with the connection diagrams.
  2. Perform a loop back test on two units:
    1. Plug the power connector to the converter.  Both the PWR light and RX light should be on both units.
    2. Connect the fiber optic in of one converter and fiber optic out to the other converter.
    3. Connect the fiber optic out of one converter and fiber optic in of the other converter.
    4. Only the PWR light should be lit on both converters.
    5. Connect the two RS-232 ports to two PC RS-232 ports.
    6. Running hyper terminal programs on both PCs, send ASCII characters to the 232-FIBER-SM converter from one PC port, and check that the characters are received at the 2nd PC port. Repeat the test in the opposite direction. This tests that the transmit and receive functions of both 232-FIBER-SM units are working properly.
    7. When data is transmitting to the converter the TX light should blink and when the converter is receiving data the RX light should blink.
