Moxa’s ICF-11711 Series extends communications up to 40 kilometers.
Moxa has launched its ICF-11711 Series of CAN-to-fiber converters. When used in pairs to connect two CAN 2.0 or two CAN-FD devices or networks, the converters are capable of extending transmission distance by 2km (1.25 miles) on multi-mode fiber or up to 40km (24.85 miles) on single-mode fiber, regardless of the CAN baudrate. The converters will transmit at data rates up to 1 Mbps in CAN interfaces and up to 5 Mbps in CAN-FD interfaces. These DIN-rail mounted converters measure 1.19 x 2.76 x 4.52 inches, and come with 2kV isolation and 2kV surge protection for CAN port. Protected in a IP30 rated metal housing, the converters feature an operating range of -40 to 75°C.
