Mind4Energy can integrate fiber optic (FO) communication in its data acquisition hardware. We have experience with both single-mode and multi-mode cabling and star, bus or ring networks. Managed and unmanaged switches can be used. The FO patch panels and converters can be integrated in our data acquisition cabinets. This offers better protection and is a lower cost solution. The FO converters will be connected directly to the UPS in order to assure data transmission in case of power failure.
