Casino IT Managers: RS-485 Converters Designed to Support Casino / VLT Data Networks

Press Release:
  Apr 26, 2010 — Fiber 485® Model 4127
HP Versalink Fiber to RS-485 Interface Converter

ESL's Fiber Optic Converters Allow Connection of HP Fiber Optic Linked Terminals to RS-485 Port of Controller
The RS485 / HP Versalink Fiber Interface Converters are used to connect fiber optic linked terminals to a controller having an RS-485/RS-422 interface port. While RS485 is a versatile communication standard, able to communicate over long distances and at fast data rates, conversion to a fiber optic communication standard also allows data transmission that is no longer susceptible to electrostatic or electromagnetic fields. Additionally, the ports of the connected terminals are protected from damage by potential differences (ground variations) that often exist between them.

ESL's Fiber Converters Ideal for Casino / Gaming VLT Network Applications
