CAMAC SERIAL HIGHWAY UTILIZING A LASER LINK

A system for extending a CAMAC serial highway to a distance of 2 kilometers using an optical link is described. The system utilizes commercially available laser transceivers operating in the pulse mode. Information is transmitted asynchronously and then resynchronized at the receiver interface. The serial highway extension provides effective remote instrument control and interprocessor communication for routine laboratory analyses and process support.
