AFL-220 DIN rail Analog/Contact Closure Fiber Optic Link is an OEM product designed especially for industrial applications.
The units may be used for transferring +/-10V analog signals or 4-20mA current loop signals, together with 2 contact closures (or digital TTL signals).
The user may configure the Analog input to be -10V to +10V or 4-20 mA by using a single jumper. The receiver will output both - 4-20 mA signal (for input range of 0 to +10V or 4-20mA, as selected) along with 4-20 mA current loop signal.
The 2 Digital I/O lines may be also configured by the user to 0 to +5V (or +3.3V) Standard TTL signal or to contact closure (i.e. a contact close at the transmitter would cause a contact closure at the receiver). The Receiver contacts are change-over type so the operation may be inverted (contact closure at the input may be configured to closed or open switch at the receiver).
The AFL-220 Analog/Contact Closure Fiber Optic Link was designed for system integrators and builders, where low size, low power consumption and low cost are important. You won't have to keep 3-4 different fiber optic links in your toolbox. One link does it all with few simple jumper configurations.
The bandwidth of the analog input is DC-5KHz. The contacts can be switched up to 300 times per second and the TTL lines can be toggled up to 30,000 times per second. The distance between the 2 modules may be between 0 to 2 miles with the standard Multi-Mode interface(30 miles optional with Single Mode optical interface and SM fiber).

noise transfer of analog or digital data , particularly beneficial in electrically
noisy environments and for transmission over long distance.
For industrial applications: DIN rail interface, 24V single supply.
Optional differential amplifier input stage provides a differential input, with
gain of 1 or 10 or 100 (must be configured on time of order),
for direct connection
of any sensor such as: strain gage, piezo,
EEG & ECG, temperature, humidity, pressure, etc.
test equipment from computer-generated noise and spikes: noises from computer
return into your system.
Eliminates the formation
of "ground loops" (when two instruments are connected to separate power
lines or have a difference between their ground voltage potentials).
Total protection of
signal processor's input stage from accidental sensor malfunction (e.g. short
voltage or a lightning shock).
Replaces bulky coaxial
cables with compact fiber optic cables - especially important when rewiring existing
ducts. Interface to existing fibers - Multi-Mode standard, SIngle Mode optional.
analog signals to distances of up to 3km - with 12 bits accuracy.
