RS-485 cables are the standard in the connector cable industry, they are used for serial communications. These communications are possible because of two lines that are dedicated to a differential pair and one as a reference. It’s important to note when building with the standard, build the network with 32 slave devices connected to one master; this ratio ensures balance in the communication network. Also known as TIA/E1A-485(-A), this standard is suitable in noisy industrial environments where the application doesn’t require high transfer rates driving multiple devices.

When we go to work, we go to an office with the standard desk, chair, and computer setup. We print, fax, email, and make calls. It’s second nature, we don’t think about it, we just do it. We don’t really notice how it is that all of this is happening, that we’re on the same local area network, or LAN.

Fiber optics are long, glass strands that transmit light signals over long distances. The Fiber threads are as thin as a human hair and to make optical cables. The thin glass threads are bundled together so that they all work together to transfer light signals at a faster rate that has never been seen before. The Fiber Optics Cable has three parts. The first is the Core, the core is the bundled-up glass threads that carry the signal. The second, the Cladding, is a material that reflects the light signal back to the core to maintain maximum signal strength. The third and final component of a Fiber Optic Cable is the “Buffer Coating”. The Buffer Coating is a coating made of plastic that protects the rest of the components from damage or moisture.
