Description

Analog RFoF optical Transmitter is used to convert RF signals to optical signals that can be sent and carried over long distances of fiber optic cable.

The Optical Receiver converts them back to an RF signal. The two units are connected through 1 single mode fiber up to 40Km.

RF over Fiber modules (RFoF) are commonly used in L-band, S-band satellite, radio telescopes, RF antennas distribution, broadcasting audio, and video, timing synchronization and GPS applications and other telecommunications.

It's very easy and cost effective to extend a signal from any antenna, Modulator or RF instrument, point to point or multipoint to multipoint using fiber optic splitters.

Features
  • Ultra Compact size
  • Flat frequency response
  • Low power consumption
  • Excellent EMI/EMC design
  • Automatic optical power control
  • High dynamic input and output range
  • Wide operating frequency from 100MHz to 6GHz

Applications

  • WiMAX / 4G / 5G
  • Mobile backhaul
  • GPS signal transport
  • All-Digital QAM, DVB-S2, K-band, S-band, L-band  network
  • Data and video distribution
  • Distributed antenna 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
Answer:
What RF frequencies do you need to pass it via fiber ?
This unit supports RF up to 6Ghz, it is most likely too expensive for personal use.
You can use CATV RF over fiber TX/RX
our L-band TX/TX over fiber TX/RX
Please let me know if that would work for you.

4 LNB's satellite distribution system for MDU over 1 fiber - DWDM- High Power

4x Ch L-Band DWDM Transmitter for Satellite TV. Designed for delivery of satellite service to more than 5000 locations, or to be used as a satellite to home LTTH system. Used similarly as many CATV FTTH systems, instead LTTH units transport 4 independent satellite signals off the Dish and mux them into a single fiber. DWDM light spectrum could be amplified by EDFA, this is why we can distribute the
