Pepperl+Fuchs' LS680 Series Optical Data Couplers enable live video communication in material handling applications

Pepperl+Fuchs' LS680 Series Optical Data Couplers are capable of transmitting signals such as live video and other communication information. The LS680 optical data transmitter transmits protocol-free, meaning various industrial Ethernet topologies such as Ethernet IP, PROFINET and TCP/IP can all be transmitted on the same product. It transmits signals from 0 meters to 150 meters, with a 180-meter threshold distance. It is engineered to transmit data consistently at a rate of 100 MBit/s via a 100 Base-TX interface.

The LS680 optical data coupler is designed to act as a “virtual cable” that replaces a physical Ethernet cable. Diagnostic and status LEDs, such as a bar graph LED display, are engineered to indicate the quality of the optical signal. The LS680 features a wide beam angle and two built-in alignment LEDs.
