The S.I.Tech 2853 Bit-Driver® is designed to work with coaxial cable "Arcnet". Model 2853 is a coax to fiber optic transmitter/receiver full duplex product implementing "Arcnet" networking scheme. The normal operating data rate is 2.5 Mbps.

This fiber optic Bit-Driver product eliminates many disadvantages of coaxial cable, especially EMI/RFI, high attenuation (high signal loss), limiting distance between nodes of Arcnet (2000 feet coax), ground loops (electrical isolation with fiber), weight, and potential lightning damage outdoors between buildings.

S.I.Tech Model 2853 is a stand alone product allowing easy change from coax to fiber: Simply disconnect the BNC connector and plug into the input/output port.

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