PROFIBUS-to-Fiber Media Converters

Industrial automation applications—especially in the power automation, Oil & Gas, and Intelligent Traffic System—require robust remote management and control systems that are able to operate all the time. System operators need a network topology that must be able to transmit data reliably over long distances at a high speed to achieve remote management. The ICF-1280I series fits the bill. These PROFIBUS-to-fiber converters extend transmission up to 4 km using multi-mode fiber, or up to 45 km using single-mode fiber. To save maintenance efforts, the ICF-1280I features Fiber Diagnosis function, system operator can easily examine fiber network communication from a single converter.

Go the Distance!

  • Faster—redundant fiber ring with zero recovery time
  • Longer—extend fiber transmission up to 45 km
  • Easier—examine network-wide fiber communication from a single converter

The ICF-1280I PROFIBUS-to-fiber converters extend transmission much longer than other fiber converters. It extends fiber transmission up to 4 km using multi-mode fiber, or up to 45 km using single-mode fiber. Meanwhile, the ICF-1280I series products, inherit the functionality of the ICF-1180I series, provide 2 kV isolation protection and dual power inputs to ensure uninterrupted performance, and can operate in temperatures ranging from -40 to 75°C. Combining those rugged designs, the ICF-1280I can keep a reliable operation with a long life cycle in harsh environments, especially for factory automation, power, and oil & gas applications.
