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


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.
