Fiber Optic Media Converters for Mitsubishi Control Systems

mitsubishiPhoenix Digital's plug-and-play communication modules provide multi-fault tolerant, redundant fiber optic networking for Mitsubishi’s MELSEC control and HMI platforms.

Our fiber optic media converters for these I/O and peer-to-peer networks are available as standalone, DIN-rail mounted units.  They also support:

  • All of Mitsubishi’s high availability, Redundant Platforms
  • Mitsubishi’s Ethernet IP solutions in a ring topology
  • High availability Serial ModBus applications in a ring topology
  • Ethernet solutions in a ring topology

We designed the PDC fiber optic media converter for mission critical DCS and Discrete I/O and peer-to-peer applications that require superior uptime and simple deployment and maintenance. PDC communication modules create a multi-fault tolerant network that sets up in minutes with 1 dip switch and has no software programming or system configuration. Each fiber optic media converter is auto recognized as it is added to or dropped from the system network.

The PDC system does not require any software updates, security patches, driver updates or memory flash configurations, ever.

Every Phoenix Digital communication module:

Our redundant fiber optic network switches can be configured in any popular I/O and peer-to-peer network topology (ring, bus, star, tree, point-to-point, etc.). Communication distances beyond 6 miles (10 kilometers) between modules using multimode fiber optic cable and over 60 miles (96 kilometers) with single-mode fiber cable are achievable.

Our fiber optic media converter provides 30-sec MTTR (mean time to repair) and supports the following protocols:

  • IEC 61850 Power Automation Protocol
  • EthernetIP
  • Serial ModBus
  • Ethernet
  • Modbus TCP

Phoenix Digital has years of experience with industrial I/O networks for Mitsubishi applications. Contact us today to put our fiber optic networking expertise to work for you.
