Stand-alone RS232 Media Converter
RS232 Copper to Fiber
Link a remote terminal to a host computer: Connect multiple devices, such as security scanners, POS devices, remote terminals and building access/alarming systems to a host computer. Ideal for campus or business environments where remote devices can be networked in a point-to-point configuration where distances are greater than the 15 meter limitation of conventional copper serial cables.
Transition Networks’ serial RS232 to Fiber Media Converter is an inexpensive way to extend the distance between serial connections with the use of fiber optic cable. This converter supports full or half-duplex data transmission at speeds up to 120 Kbps. Unit and Port LEDs allow for quick status information on the converter.

I’ve used Transition Networks’ products in my customer installations for years. I’ve always found their products, customer service, sales, and tech support to be top-notch. I wouldn’t even consider using another brand.
