RuggedMC RMC20



The RMC™ series of media converters are industrially hardened and specifically designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh and climatically demanding environments.

The RMC20 is a utility-grade, protocol-independent, serial-to-fiber and serial standards converter for all your serial communication requirements. The RMC20 allows RS485, RS422, or RS232 devices or networks to communicate over secure, noise immune, optically isolated, fiber optic cabling at extended distances as well convert RS232 to either RS485 or RS422 serial standards.

The RMC20 was designed specifically to provide years of maintenance free operation for all your mission-critical, realtime control applications. To ensure the utmost in reliability, the RMC20 is tested to the most stringent international EMI and environmental standards for use in HV/MV electric utility substations and industrial manufacturing, process and control and intelligent transportation systems applications. All RMC™ products are packaged with a high reliability, built-in power supply (24V, 48V, or HI Voltage options) and enclosed in a rugged galvanized steel enclosure suitable for panel or DIN-rail mounting.  

All RuggedCom Inc. products are backed by a five-year warranty and unsurpassed technical support.
