Because the TC1520 can be multi-dropped on the electrical side (RS-485), it is ideal for poll and response applications (e.g. SCADA & Process Control) in Industrial and Manufacturing environments. An extreme temperature version (-20°C to 70°C) for hostile environments is optional.

  • Async Data Rates up to 500 Kbps*
  • RS-422, 2 or 4-wire RS-485
  • Hardened Temperature Version (optional)
  • Ring or Point-to-point Topologies
  • Distances up to 80km
  • Multimode or Single Mode (850/1300/1550nm)
  • Six Diagnostic LEDs
  • Sturdy Compact Metal Case

Applications
