Fiber Optic 6 LNB to SWM Switch Extender System for 6 Polarity Satellite TV 

The F-LB61 system from Thor Fiber is designed for use with satellite TV systems that have six LNB coax cables coming from the antennas.  These are typically systems that support an additional antenna used for international content or free to air programming.  The LB61 solution will work with most standard satellite TV antennas such as Directv® and Dish Network® systems.  LB61 creates a fiber optic link between the satellite antenna and the single wire multiswitch portion of the TV system.  This can be used to overcome distance limitations between the antenna and the rest of the system, or to distribute the output from a single antenna to multiple TV distribution locations.  The standard LB61 system can be used to deliver the output from a satellite antenna to up to 32 individual optical receivers.  The output from each of these optical receivers is identical to the output from the original satellite antenna.  There is no way that the equipment from the television provider can detect that it is not directly connected to its own satellite antenna.

The most common application for the LB61 system is extending the maximum distance between a television system and its satellite dish antenna.  Without the use of a Thor system, the satellite antenna must be installed within 100 meters of a multiswitch or receiver equipment.  This is not a problem for most residential or household type consumer applications; but presents a significant obstacle in larger high rise buildings or corporate installations.  The LB61 system increases the flexibility of satellite TV systems by overcoming the distance limitation between the antenna and the rest of the TV system.

IMPORTANT NOTE*** (it is very important to interface our unit with SC/APC - Angle Polished Connector to avoid any light reflections.

If your fiber is terminated with the  SC, ST, FC /PC flat connector, you need to use an optical jumper from PC type to SC/APC for proper conversion.

Question and Answers
So this is all relative to what kind of Dish you have. Our Lband over Fiber systems assist contractors and integrators in moving dishes further away from the receiver then the allotted RG coax allows which is roughly 90 feet. So if you can't use good old copper, most professionals have to install singlemode fiber, which will carry the signal for miles. In this case you'd be looking at a fairly expensive endeavour based on the dish you have. Some old style dishes have a single LNB polarity; most new HD dishes have anywhere from 3-5 LNB's. What our systems do is take those polarities, convert them to glass via CWDM multiplexing, and then the reverse happens on the receiving end. This does not include the Fiber, The Dish, or the Outdoor weatherproofind you'll need along with send some sort of power supply up to the dish so you can power the Transmitter and the Dish's LNB's. So if you know the model of the dish you have let us know and we can point you to a specific model. Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions.
we have a unit that would work for you but it will not take entire L-band, it has 16 individual L-band channels input, the programming needs to be unencrypted.Please check this link below, and let me know if it will work for you, if you more channels, you can use multiple units and. Each band channel can carry multiple TS programs.Each TS's is being converted to its own multicast or unicast UDP stream https://thorbroadcast.com/product/16-rf-tuners-to-iptv-ts-qam-output.html/118
We have 1,4,6 LNB's over fiber available. The LB61-CWDM unit has 6 individual lasers converting each LNB to its own CWDM wavelengths, this is how we can multiplex 6 individual RF signals over 1 single fiber. The Transmitter and Receiver are 19" rack-mount 1RU chassis', the unit has LCD display it shows RF input and output power as well as the Optical input and output power, making it very easy to install without specialized testing equipment. In addition, each input on the Transmitter can be set to output 13V, 18V, 0V with 22khz tone, so a polarity locker is not needed. The standard Transmitter can be split 1x8 using external optical coupler F-PLC-1x8 to connect 8 remote locations.
Please check this drawing, it shows connection diagram : https://thorbroadcast.com/upload/files/177/satellite-tv-fiberbreak.pdf
1) The best option for this application is to use our LB41-CWDM system which can take up to 4 L-band signals and will mux them onto one fiber. https://thorbroadcast.com/product/4-ch-l-band-over-single-fiber-extender-45-3000mhz-cwdm.html 2) So, in this case, you would need to use 3 separate portable transmitters and receivers running over 3 separate fibers: This is the link : F-L-band-TxRx https://thorbroadcast.com/product/l-band-over-fiber-tx-rx-basic-1-ch-kit.html Each kit has a transmitter, receiver and power supplies. These are quite compact and should be able to fit 3 of those in the Nema box easily, but each one of the Tx units will require a power supply.
