Fiber optic modems
The industrial fiber optic networking product line of NSPI was established through the acquisitions of Apec Electronics in 1991 and the EOTec business of the 3M Company in 1994.
Over the years NSPI has continued to invest in the development of these products by adding new protocols, features and capabilities. NSPI was the first company to receive Factory Mutual (FM) hazardous area certification for fiber optic modems. In addition, we pioneered the development of Self-Healing Ring technology which provides high reliability, media redundant PLC/DCS communications (Patent #6,307,652). Recently, NSPI introduced the EOTec 2104 Ethernet Ring Switch which provides an economical solution to the combination of high performance ring redundancy with Ethernet communications.
These compact DIN-Rail mounted optical, electrical and power supply modules snap together to create a fiber optic network that can distribute information in a variety of topologies, including star, daisy chain, self-healing ring (SHR) and dual self healing ring (DSHR) configurations.
