The Thor Fiber Optical Mini CATV RF 45-900Mhz Transmitter is mainly used for transmitting long distance optical fiber transmission of CATV RF - Analog or digital QAM or ATSC Television Digital TV, telephone and data transmission. It's application for digital signal transmission of video and data in the cable television and communications industry. The transmission range can vary from 5km to 30km. It comes equipped with an advanced DFB laser that readily provides expectionally high performance and RF power, as well as automatic processing technology developed by our company. Finally it has a built-in micro-computer that automatically monitors the control system and guarantees excellent performance of the equipment.

  • 45 -1000MHz working bandwidth
  • High performance DFB coaxial laser that has a great linking performance and stable output
  • Advanced CPU processing and with an auto monitoring system to supervise the operational status which leads to a longer life of the laser
  • Low power loss design(less than 8W) which creates a ver low operational temperature

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.

Quick Installation guide
The Mini Transmitter and Mini Receiver set are plug and play devices if the RF input power to the TX and optical power Input to the RX are in the specified range.
 TX RF INPUT 15-25dBmV (75-85dBuV)  RX Optical INPUT should be +2 - 6dBm

1) Connect Power Supply to the Transmitter
2) Connect CATV RF Input to the F port connector - Please note, the RF Power should be     between 15-25dBmV (75-85dBuV)
3) Connect fiber optic cable to the Mini Transmitter Output - The Connector type MUST be     SC/APC, never use SC/PC (Blue flat connector)     NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE UNITS OPTICAL OUTPUT (you could burn your eye)
4 ) For short distance, point to point transmission, please plug 5db fiber optic attenuator,    included in the box. (if the transmitter is used with a fiber optic splitter, the attenuator is not     needed due to splitters insertion loss).     The fiber loss is about 0.35db/km in 1310nm wavelength there is also some slight loss in path panel     junctions typically 0.1 -0.5db per junction
5) The TX should show "ON" on the LCD, meaning it is transmitting and outputting an optical signal.


1) Connect POWER Supply to the Receiver, "No Light Input" or "Level too Low" the LED will be RED
2) Connect CATV RF cable to the F port connector - RF Output, the output will be about 22dBmV (82 dBuV)
3) Connect fiber optic cable to the Mini Receiver INPUT – The Connector type MUST be SC/APC, never use SC/PC    (Blue flat connector)             NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY TO THE FIBER JUMPER. (You will burn your eye)

4) The Optical level by the receiver should be about  +2 to -6dBm
5) The LED should turn from RED to GREEN
5a) The RED LED means no Link Light detector
5b) The red light might also mean saturation, LEVEL TOO HIGH, it is easy to determine when you plug in the optical jumper the unit will go from RED to GREEN to RED again, it means the optical level is higher than +2Dbm , the receiver will still work correctly if this level will be not higher than +5dbm, If higher then +5, please add 5db attenuator included with your purchase.  

Question and Answers
Unfortunately, RF Catv can only be transmitted over single-mode fiber. Multimode creates too much dispersion and reflections and the degradation is so severe, and so fast that it is literally impossible to put the cable on multimode. Would it be possible for you to pull a strand of single mode fiber? If possible that product you selected would be an ideal fit for your project.
The multimode fiber doesn't support CATV RF, the easiest way would be to install the single-mode fiber and use the following devices: Transmitter or if this is impossible, you can use RF to IP and IP to RF gateways.16 QAM to IP to 16 QAM Ethernet over Fiber Converters:
