Moxa’s Serial to Fiber Converter Family Introduction
Moxa’s serial to fiber converters which include TCF-90 and TCF-142 for entry level, ICF-1150 series for industrial grade and NRack System for high density solution. Also include CP-102UF which is a multiport serial board with fiber optic interface.
The TCF-142 media converter is equipped with a multiple interface circuit that can handle RS-232 or RS-422/485 serial interfaces and multi-mode or single-mode fiber. TCF-142 converters are used to extend serial transmission up to 5 km (TCF-142-M with multi-mode fiber) or up to 40 km (TCF-142-S with single-mode fiber). The TCF-142 can be configured to convert either RS-232 signals, or RS-422/485 signals, but not both at the same time.
