    RS-232 to 422 Bidirectional Opto-Isolator, Male


    Quick Facts

  • Bidirectionally converts RS-232/RS-422 signals.
  • Prevents damaging ground loops when transmitting between buildings.
  • Stops ground loops by transforming electrical signals into fiber optic light pulses.

  • Further Details

    Transmitting data between buildings? You'd better guard against damaging ground loops. Ground loops occur when you link devices powered by separately grounded AC power sources. But a Black Box® Opto-Isolator stops them by internally transforming electrical signals into fiber optic light pulses. This "air gap" breaks the copper connection between the two AC systems, preventing potential equipment damage while enabling data to flow uninterrupted.

    NOTE: Cannot be used in pairs.
