High levels of electromagnetic interference (EMI) is a common phenomenon found in industrial plants. EMI can cause data corruption over copper-based Ethernet links. However, data transmitted over fiber optic cable is completely immune to this type of noise. Organizations need a way to take advantage of fiber without the cost of replacing their existing copper-based devices and cabling. The Perle SR-1000 Media Converter is the solution that enables companies to interconnect copper-Ethernet devices over fiber to ensure optimal data transmission across the plant floor.

The SR-1000 Media Converters reliably bridge the gap between copper and fiber networks with a blend of cutting-edge features and a robust design that adheres to rigorous industry certifications, including IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613. This ensures resilience in a wide range of IIoT applications, as well as the harsh conditions prevalent in electric utilities, substations, and other hazardous locations.

Their compact DIN rail mount design facilitates easy integration into any networking setup. Redundant power input and a wide operating temperature range of -40°F to +167°F enhance reliability and uptime where commercial-grade media converters would falter. Moreover, onboard microcontrollers continuously monitor link status for error detection and recovery, ensuring minimal downtime in critical applications.

It is my pleasure to recognize the SR-1000 Media Converter, an innovative solution that earned Perle Systems the 2024 Industrial IoT Product of the Year Award.
