Toshiba Launches Adapter for Unidirectional Optical Modules for Short Distance Data Transmission

TOKYO--()--Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (“Toshiba”) has launched “TOCA1300,” an adapter for unidirectional optical modules[1]. Mass production shipments start today.

The new product is an adapter for unidirectional optical modules that connects a fiber optic transmitting module and a fiber optic receiving module to transmit data for a short distance. TOCA1300 can substitute for optical fiber where there is demand for a longer insulation distance than with a photocoupler and for a shorter transmission distance than with optical fiber cable. The adapter allows optical transmission when combined with Toshiba fiber couplers[2].

Notes:
[1] TOCA1300 is not certified to meet any safety standards. Customers may need to carry out evaluation and apply for certification to the appropriate authority.
[2] When combined with the TOTX1350(F) fiber optic transmitting module and either the TORX1350A(F) or TORX1355(F) fiber optic receiving module.

Applications

Industrial equipment (power storage systems, high voltage inverters, etc.)

Features

  • Secures a longer creepage distance than a photocoupler.
  • Use for transmission distances shorter than with optical fiber.
  • Can be used with the TOTX1350(F) fiber optic transmitting module and either the TORX1350A(F) or TORX1355(F) fiber optic receiving module.
