RS-485 OMNINET to Fiber Optic Modem

S.I. Tech Model 2852 RS-485 OMNINET to Fiber Optic Modem

The S.I.Tech 2852 Bit-Driver is designed to work with "Omninet" by Corvus systems using single twisted pair cable. Model 2852 Bit-Driver is a twisted pair to fiber optic transmitter/receiver half duplex product implementing "Omninet" networking scheme. Normal operating data rate is 1 Mbps.

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

S.I.Tech Model 2852 is a standalone product allowing easy change from twisted pair to fiber: Simply disconnect two wires and connect to model 2852 input/output port. Model 2852 comes with power supply and status indicators.
