B&B Electronics, http://www.bb-elec.com has the FOSTCDR in their printed catalog. It converts RS-232/422/485 to fiber and back. Din rail mounted.

You may want to look at Omega (omega.com 1-800-826-6342). They have a couple of serial to fiber converters. Most are RS232 to fiber, but they
have a RS232/422 to fiber converter.

Phoenix Contact makes a nice din-rail mount serial to fiber converter. Try PSM series.

Try Hirschmann. They have a product, the OZD 485, which converts any RS485 communications to Fiber optic. We have already tested this device with Allen Bradley DH+ and Remote I/O, which might as well work also with your plc.

Hope this helps.

Here is the link: http://www.commfront.com/Fiber-Optic-Converters/RS232-RS485-RS422-to-Fiber-Optic-Converter.htm
