Line of sight optical comms at 100Mbit/s

When a cabled data network solution is too expensive or simply not feasible then wireless is the obvious choice. However, if line-of-sight is possible then optical solutions can offer more reliable and secure connections over longer distances. Pepperl+Fuchs' optical data transmission units use a combination of modulated laser and infrared light to pass data seamlessly between themselves at distances up to 300m.

Configuration of the units is unnecessary beyond the connection and alignment of the units. The devices are protocol independent and transparent to the network allowing up to 100Mbits/s of data to be transferred via any protocol including Ethernet/IP, ProfiNet, Fast Ethernet, Powerlink and EtherCAT.
