Data transmission over long distances or in environments with a lot of electromagnetic interference is best done using fiber optic cables. WAGO now has a new PFC controller model in its portfolio for such applications, which makes fiber optic communication very easy. The PFC200 has two SFP slots (Small Form-factor Pluggable) for connection, which are widely used in IT. The PFC200 also has two RJ-45 ports for 100BASE-TX on board. Different modules, for example for connecting single-mode or multi-mode glass fibers, can be installed in the SFP slots, into which LC connectors are then plugged. With the new PFC200 controller, users who need a connection to a fiber optic network can save an additional media converter in the control cabinet.
- Ports for different SFP modules
- Direct connection without an additional switch
- Ideal for high EMC requirements or long transmission paths
