Serial Media Converter and Repeaters provide conversion between serial networks and other media. Our Serial Media Converter can transparently convert RS-232 signals to RS-422/485 signals, as well as wireless and fiber optic signals. Most industrial computer systems come with standard RS-232 serial ports. Though widely accepted, RS-232 has limited transmission speed, range and networking capabilities. The RS-422/485 standards overcome these limitations by using differential voltage lines for data and control signals. Advantech’s Serial Media Converter and Repeaters with sophisticated industry technique offer more efficiency of transmit for you.
