Lynx Technik AG O BD 1510 D overview

  • 1Description

The Lynx Technik AG OBD 1510 D Serial and GPI Bi-directional Fiber Transceiver consists of a pair of multi-function modules (type A and B) which extend the reach of serial RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 as well as two GPI (general purpose interface) up to 6.2 mi (10km) over a single bi-directional fiber link (WDM). 

A single RJ-45 electrical serial connection can be configured for RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 serial standards. A separate RJ-45 connector is provided for two electrical GPI inputs and outputs. Serial communications and GPI are transmitted and extended over the same fiber link. 

The OBD 1510 D is completely agnostic to the serial protocol used, and supports all standard protocols and proprietary protocols at data rates from 300 to 460k baud (auto sensing and auto adjusting). 

The integrated dip switch provides precise control over the serial mode of operation with selections for the serial standard, serial termination, RX/TX crossover, and RS422/485 data direction (automatic or manual). Data activity LEDs are provided for the serial port and the GPI port under the respective RJ-45 connectors. 

The OBD 1510 D also supports mixing and matching of serial standards. For example, the transmitting module can have a RS-232 input and the receiving module can be set for RS-422 output. The OBD 1510 D is completely plug-and-play, hot pluggable, and no special software drivers are required.
