CS FC100 Fiber Optic Converter
The FC100 is designed for use with the SG000 Strike Guard lightning detector as part of the CS110 and LW110 lightning warning systems. The SG000 outputs its data signal via fiber-optic cable, and the FC100 is installed at the end of the fiber-optic cable and before the datalogger. The FC100 converts a fiber-optic data signal into an RS-232 signal for a lightning-proof connection between the sensor and the datalogger.
The FC100 can also be used as an RS-232 link between two serial devices (datalogger to PC) separated by less than 328 ft (100 m). The FC100 is a DCE device, so a null modem cable is needed between it and a datalogger.
Benefits and Features:
• Lightning-proof and lightning-safe serial communication
• Robust design for long, trouble-free operation
• Instant termination without connectors, crimping, polishing, or epoxy
