What is a serial over fiber board? A serial over fiber board is
a multiport serial board that incorporates fiber optic transmission
on the board. In other words, a serial over fiber board combines
the multiport serial board and the serial-to-fiber converter
together on the board.
What are serial over fiber boards
used for? Serial over fiber boards are
used to overcome the limitations of serial over wire. Fiber solutions
are particularly useful for long distance applications since fiber
optic transmission is immune from the effects of electromagnetic
disturbances. In addition, it is generally easier to lay fiber optic
cable compared to wire cable.
What are the key advantages
of using a serial-to-fiber board?
Puts the converter directly on the board
Less maintenance for
wiring between the multiport serial board and serial to
Easy to upgrade
Installation is just
as easy as for traditional multiport serial boards
What is the maximum transmission
distance of the CP-102UF?
What is the ring mode function,
and how does it benefit your network? Ring mode allows the CP-102UF
board to communicate with multiple serial devices connected to form
a fiber ring. Connect the Tx port and Rx port of neighboring devices
to form the ring. The ring mode function can save you a lot of wiring
costs and maintenance effort. Moreover, the ring length can be up
to 100 km, and you can connect as many devices as you like.
Why do you need normal mode? Normal mode is "point-to-point"
transmission. With normal mode, you can only connect the board to
