Serial & USB Communication

Serial & USB Communication

Reliable Devices to Extend Your Network

When two pieces of your network don’t fit together, a simple media converter, repeater, hub, or extender is an easy and affordable way to solve the problem. Our industrial USB and serial devices are built for every need, joining copper and fiber networks in almost any imaginable configuration. They also cover all major connection types, such as RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, USB, RJ11, VDSL, WDM, and single- and multi-mode fiber. They are designed for easy deployment, management, and upkeep so that you may extend your network capacity with a small labor investment. They are also designed for standard storage ranging from 19” rack mount cards to stand-alone devices. On top of that, they have a range of features and options that allow you to match your exact needs. These include Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), power redundancy, network monitoring, and network redundancy.

Protocol Media Converters for Serial Connections

When you need to connect two networking protocols, adapt a physical connector to another type, or interconnect a fiber-optic network to an existing copper one, an industrial media converter is the way to go.

 

These simple devices convert RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 with a DB9, DB25, or terminal block connector to various interfaces, including Ethernet, fiber, or wireless. The STM-602C, for example, offers two configurable serial ports and two Ethernet ports to connect Modbus TCP and RTU/ASCII networks. For high-density applications, a more extensive 19” rack mount system, like the FCU-RACK16, accommodates plug-in media converter cards. It’s ideal for high port counts. Easy to install and configure, our selection of managed media converters offers a solution for nearly every Ethernet conversion need.

Managed Media Converters

A host of managed converters provides meticulous network management through easily navigated controls. A managed media converter with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) may be configured, managed, and monitored by a network administrator. Our SNMP-enabled media converters include standard features like web management, port configuration, traffic statistics, Q-in-Q double tag, jumbo frames, flow control, trap management, alarms, VLAN, remote login, and more. Black Box’s LGC340A-R2 is a great example of a compact SNMP fiber converter. It converts two RJ45 Ethernet port to SFP. Flow control, link alarm, loopback test, bandwidth control, DHCP client, and several other features give it the full range of network control and reliability, making it a great fit in most fiber networks. It meets the appropriate IEEE standards and is FCC emissions-compliant.

The LMC5204A is another managed media converter system offering six media converter modules in a slim 1U 19” rackmount package. This larger device is designed for abusive environments, with an extended operating temperature, ESD protection, and rack mounting. It’s packed with network reliability and redundancy tools and comes backed with a 6-year warranty.

USB Converters and Extenders

When you don’t need network management on your converters and prefer faster deployment, we offer a number of USB converters that cover the same spectrum of data types and connectors. Our industrial USB devices are available in hubs, converters, and extenders with various port counts and form factors. The IC400A-R2 converts four USB devices to Ethernet connections. It’s essentially plug-and-play with Windows systems. To extend USB peripherals beyond the 16-foot (5-meter) limitation, the IC400A-R2 is an excellent choice. It extends one USB line to 328 feet (110 meters) and is compatible with USB devices operating at speeds up to 480 Mbps.
