Description

Thor Fiber Satellite L-Band RF Over Fiber Transmitter and Receiver kit

Model # F-Lband-Tx/Rx

The L-Band fiber optic Transmitter/Receiver pair are used for transporting RF Satellite signals in the L Band over fiber from the antenna to the satellite receiver. L-band RF signals have a very limited range over coaxial cable, typically no more than a few hundred feet. By transporting the L-Band RF signal over an optical fiber this range can be extended to over 50 miles. Fiber optic cables are much smaller and easier to work with than traditional copper coax. Additionally our units provides optional 13/18V LNB power as well as Automatic Gain Control (AGC) to manage RF input level. Fiber optic transport of satellite signals is useful in many applications, such as transportation of signals from a remote satellite farm to a broadcaster's headend, uplink and downlink applications, and DBS services. Thor Offers CWDM multiplexing solutions for transportation of up to 8 distinct L-Band signals over a single fiber, as well as multicasting solutions over several different fibers via optical coupling. Custom solutions are available, contact Thor today for help with your specific L Band over fiber needs.


 

 

Features
  • Low cost kit to transport L-Band frequencies from LNB's over fiber
  • Can provide LNB power at 13/18 VDC over coax
  • Can provide 22 kHz control tone for LNB polarity shifting
  • Can be used to remote satellite antennas up to 10 miles away
  • Compatible with PLC optical splitters, point to multi point

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
Question:
Does this work with dish network LNB?

Answer:
Generally yes, but there is several different options. How many LNB's does your dish has? Please give us call directly we will explain as different providers have different hardware options; we just need to match the hardware that you have to the hardware we offer to create a seamless transition of your Dish service
Question:
We are expanding our broadcast studio. We have 2 studios that are connected to our machine room via fiber and are looking to invest in Shure's new Axient system to leverage it's real-time remote frequency coordination capabilities. To do this Shure suggested could use RF-over-Fiber and we are looking at your product line. Its working range will be 470 MHz-952 MHz and the antenna distribution system uses a 50-ohm connection. Would the Thor F-LBAND-Tx/Rx Satellite L-Band RF Over Fiber Transmitter and Receiver kit 1310nm work well for this? I did notice that it is spec'ed to 75 ohms...? Do you have anything at 50?

Answer:
Yes, you can use our L-band over fiber TX/RX, it should work even if you have a 50ohm interface. If you must have 50ohm, we have GPS over fiber TX RX available with 50ohm TNT RF connector, it will cover 470 MHz-952 MHz https://thorbroadcast.com/product/gps-over-fiber-reference-timing-fiber-optic-waterproof-solution.html
