Industrial Serial to Fiber Optic Converters

Serial to Multi-Mode Fiber at the Right Price

Extending communications up to 2.5 miles is the job of B&B Electronics’ FOSTCDR line. Why pay more for features or distance you don’t need? If your application requires the fiber optic light to be off in the idle state, choose the FOSTCDR-INV. Rugged dependability is yours - at our best price
