          Ordering Information

          The RocketLinx MC5001 is a 1-port serial to fiber media converter designed to extend RS-232/422/485 serial communications across a fiber media link using two converters. This product features simple DIP switch configuration, an extended operating temperature range from -20° to 70° C, and a wide input voltage range. Cabling to the product is attached via direct wire screw terminal blocks for serial and power, and ST connectors for fiber connections.

          Multi-mode fiber optic ports meet the needs for long distance transmission up to 5KM. RocketLinx MC5001 will automatically detect the data baud rate of the connected full-duplex serial device, up to 921Kbps.

          The RocketLinx MC5001 supports two transmission configurations, Peer-to-peer in half/full-duplex and Serial Fiber Ring (SFR) in half-duplex. In a Peer-to-peer configuration, two fibers are required between the two converters, one for data in each direction (RX and TX). To expand the number of connected serial devices, and extend transmission distance, the MC5001 can link to each other as a ring architecture in SFR (serial fiber ring) mode.
