RF signal loss increases with frequency and distances. Fiber Optic (FO) cables have very low signal loss compared to coaxial cable and transmit RF signals greater distances. Even better, and not typically thought of, RF signals over fiber can be run through noisy RF environments without interference regardless of distance. Incorporating Fiber Optic transmitter and receivers in your distribution system ensures high quality signal transmission providing reliability and an excellent performance to price ratio.
The FT-FTX-6-SCAPC transmitter has a high intensity DFB laser and advanced pre-distortion feature providing a high level of reliability with low power, low noise and a high output level. The LCD display allows the user to easily monitor performance and a convenient -20dBmV test point on the rear panel enables for input signal testing without service interruption.
The FT-HHRX-870-1 series is a state of the art fiber node designed for FTTH applications. With a receive frequency range of 54 to 870 MHz, these units offer flexibility in operation and maintenance. GaAs FET technology provides low distortion and a flexible input level. Featuring low power consumption and surge protected design, the FT-HHRX-870-1 series is perfect for commercial and residential applications. This series features an integrated return path transmitter with a reverse frequency range of 5-42 MHz. The automatic gain control (AGC) function has been specially designed to simplify installation and network maintenance by compensating optical input power changes. The unit provides a stable RF output level when fed with input levels between -8dBm and +2dBm.
