ICF-1170I - 1 Port Industrial CANBus to Fibre Converter
CE is a mandatory standard for products on the market in the European Economic Area. By CE marking a product, the manufacturer ensures that the item meets the essential safety requirements set out in the applicable CE directive.
This product fully adheres to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC, RoHS for short.  The directive covers the restriction of use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is an independent product safety certification organisation based in the United States. UL develops standards for products, materials, components, assemblies, tool and equipment, mainly dealing with product safety.
These devices and systems have been designed to accept a wide voltage DC power input. This feature is desirable in the industrial market where a fixed voltage level or mains AC power cannot be guaranteed.
These devices have been designed to be mounted directly on to an industry standard DIN-rail.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent agency of the United States government that sets standards and governs the testing of conducted and radiated emissions such as EMI.
These products utilise high quality industrial grade components enabling them to work in extended wide temperature environments. They are capable of running below -20C and above +70C and offer further protection than standard wide temperature rated products.
These products come with a standard five year manufacturer warranty.

ICF-1170I overview

  • Transmits up to 2km over optical fibre
  • Converts CAN signals to fibre and fibre to CAN signals
  • Baudrate up to 1Mbps
  • DIP switch for 120ohm terminal resistance
  • DIP switch for fibre test mode
  • LEDs for Fibre TX, Fibre RX, Power 1, Power 2
  • Fully compatible with the ISO 11898 standard
  • Dual power inputs for redundancy
  • 12V to 48V DC power input
  • -40°C to +85°C operating temperature (on -T version)
The ICF-1170I series of industrial CAN-to-fibre converters are used to convert CAN signals from copper to optical fibre. The converters come with 2kV optical isolation for the CANbus system and dual power inputs with alarm contact relay to ensure that your CANbus system will remain online.

Fibre Test Mode can be used to test the fibre cable between two ICF-1170I units, and provides a simple way to determine if the fibre cable is transmitting data correctly. When in Fibre Test Mode, the fibre transceiver (TX) will continuously send out a data signal and the “Fibre TX” LED will light up. On the other side of the connection, when the ICF-1170I fibre transceiver (RX) receives the data signal form the TX side, the “Fibre RX” LED will light up.
