Advantech's Serial Media Converter and Repeaters provide conversion between serial networks and other media. Our Serial Converters can transparently convert RS-232 signals to RS-422/485 signals, as well as wireless and fiber optic signals.
  • Serial Isolators & Repeaters

    RS-232 boosters double the range of your RS-232 data signal. Repeaters may be daisy-chained for extra range. Many CE computers, laptops, and some desktops ship with low-power ports that are unable to drive port-powered devices or full-length RS-232 cabling. RS-232 signal boosters amplify these weak signals up to the RS-232 standard.
  • Serial Converters

    Isolated Converters: RS-232/422/485 Wide temperature and power ranges make B&B SmartWorx isolated converters ideal for your harsh duty applications. Automatic Send Data Control, Modbus compatible. The RS-232 side has both a terminal block connector and a DB9 female connector; the RS-485 side has a terminal block. Requires external power supply not included.
    Non Isolated Converters: RS-232/422/485 These RS-232 to RS-485 converters are perfect for applications that don’t require isolation or port-powered capability. All models include Automatic Send Data Control, eliminating the need for software modification.
  • Serial to Fiber Optic Converters

    Multi-mode Fiber Optic to RS232/422/485 Converters
  • USB Converters

    These serial media converters convert RS232 and RS232/422/485 to USB. These converters let you easily build an industrial grade, long distance communication system with standard PC hardware.
