Model 4131 Interface Converter Application:
The Versalink (POF) Fiber-to-USB Converters are used to connect fiber optic linked terminals to a controller having a USB Host interface port. While USB is a versatile communication standard, conversion to a fiber optic communication standard also allows data transmission that is no longer susceptible to electrostatic or electromagnetic fields. Additionally, the ports of the connected terminals are protected from damage by potential differences (ground variations) that often exist between them.
