MOXA TCF-142-M-SC Serial to Fiber Converter


The TCF-142 media converters are equipped with a multiple interface circuit that can handle RS-232 or RS-422/485 serial interfaces and multimode or single-mode fiber. TCF-142 converters are used to extend serial transmission up to 5 km (TCF-142-M with multi-mode fiber) or up to 40 km (TCF-142-S with single-mode fiber). The TCF-142 converters can be configured to convert either RS-232 signals, or RS-422/485 signals, but not both at the same time. 

You can also find the TCF-142-M-STTCF-142-S-ST and TCF-142-S-SC models in the TCF-142 Series.

You can buy the MOXA TCF-142-M-SC Serial to Fiber Converter online via one of our Middle East branches (Dubai/ Oman/Saudi Arabia) and get it delivered at a low cost at a specific time.
