CAN signal converter

Secure communication with EMI-protection

The ICF-1170I series CAN-to-fiber converters by Moxa secure data communication by using fiber optic transmission to provide isolation and protection against electromagnetic interference (EMI). The series features a CAN interface.

THE PRODUCTS ARE USED TO CONVERT CAN SIGNALS from copper to optical fiber. The converters come with 2-kV optical isolation for the CAN system and dual power inputs with alarm contact relay to ensure that the CAN system remains online. The series comes with a bit-rate transmission of up to 1 Mbit/s, metal housing, and operating temperatures between -40 °C and +85°C, creating a solution for industrial applications such as factory and building automation. Its input voltage is 12 VDC to 48 VDC.

The "Fiber Test Mode" feature is a way to test the transmissions status that activates a DIP switch and then displays the signal status with LEDs. To maintain continuous operations even during power interruptions, the product features a built-in power input and relay function. When the primary power input fails, the unit activates the redundant power input and sends an immediate alarm signal to the control center. The Fiber Test Mode can be used to test the fiber cable between two converter units and provides a way to determine if the fiber cable is transmitting data correctly.
