New High Speed, Ruggedized Fiber-to-USB Interface Converter Offers Security and Optical Isolation

September 3, 2008




Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL), Cranston, RI, has just announced the Model 4165 High Speed, Ruggedized Fiber-to-USB Interface Converter.  With its integrated rate buffering, the Model 4165 converts USB 2.0 compliant data from a standard PC to a serial asynchronous data interface over fiber with a user-selectable baud rate of up to 3Mbps.


The Model 4165 features ESD protection circuitry on the USB I/O connector.  The unit’s power input is protected from transients and features 3kVDC isolation to prevent system ground loops. Features include user-selectable fiber polarity, user-selectable asynchronous data format, dual DB9 power connectors (board only Model 4166) for convenience in bused power applications, Tx, Rx and Power indicator LEDs.


The converter is available as the Model 4166 board only with front-mounting threaded brackets for rack mounting in embedded applications. It is also available in a desktop package with DIN rail mounting hardware for applications that require an enclosure.
