  • Concurrent, fully-independent RS232, RS422, and RS485 communication channel over a one duplex fiber optic cable (data is multiplexed over fiber link)
  • Up to 115kbps asynchronous operation
  • Full duplex RS232 and RS422
    • Optional tri-state control for bus RS422 systems
  • Half duplex RS485
    • Rotary switch sets the RS485 bit rate
  • Metal ST connector receptacle (SMA option)
  • Female DB25 connector RS232 wired as DCE device
  • LED indicators for power, optical link status, transmit and receive data
  • Optical link status pin
  • Multimode or single mode
  • DIN rail mounting option

S.I.Tech 2563 is a unique Bit-Driver allowing simultaneous communication using RS232, RS422, and RS485. Each electrical interface is totally independent and share a combined fiber link. This way equipment with different interfaces can be connected over the same fiber i.e. in a manufacturing plant.

UL Listed. Meets FCC requirements of Class A, Part 15 Computing Devices Standard.
