Kramer AV FC-50
RS-232 over Twisted Pair Range Extender 3300' Range - 2 Required
The FC-50 from Kramer is a bidrectional range extender for RS-232 signals with a system range of up to 3300'. For operation of this unit it must be used with a second FC-50. The devices then get setup as 1 being a transmitter and 1 being a receiver, they work by one unit converting an RS-232 signal to a twisted pair signal and sends it to the second FC-50 which then receives the signal and converts the twisted pair signal back into an RS-232 signal. If these devices are being used in a shorter range they can use a Power Connect System which will power both units through a single connection to either the transmitter or receiver only if they are within 150' of each other, otherwise an external power source will be required. The FC-50 uses bidirectional RS-232 operations and has mode selection so the RS-232 port can be connected to a PC or a controlled device. There are LED indicators on the front panel which signal Green for PC or Red for device. The cable type used with this device is a UTP (unshielded twisted pair) or STP (shielded twisted pair) such as CAT 5 cable. The FC-50 comes with a 7 year warranty from Kramer.
