BC100 Modular 3RU Rack Mounting Systempdf

The BC Series is a cost effective and flexible modular system designed to accommodate the growing number of broadcast signals that need to be transported over fibre optic cable. With nearly 100 cards in the range, all standard video, audio and data formats can be accommodated with alarm and monitoring via GPI or Ethernet/SNMP.

From a simple point to point link or a complex optical infrastructure the BC Series combines the lowest cost of ownership, full broadcast specifications and robust energy efficient designs.

Multiple signals can be electrically multiplexed together as a single wavelength and up to 16 wavelengths can then be multiplexed onto a single fibre using CWDM. Optical splitters and switches provide redundancy for mission critical situations.

Our equipment supports
3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, DVB-ASI
Broadcast Quality PAL/NTSC
AES/EBU and analogue audio
10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet
Data and RF

The BC100 is a 19” 3RU chassis for Bluebell BC Series cards. Each frame can hold up to 15 single slot cards. Redundant PS65 power supplies are available as is the option for a 48V dc power input. Signal and card monitoring is achieved through SNMP monitoring in the BM101 network card. Alternatively GP-Output alarms can be triggered via the BM100 module.

General frame specifications
bm100The BM100 network card allows for external alarms to be triggered via GPO relays on a SCSI connector.
The card is fitted into Slot 16 of the BC100 frame.
Any signal or power supply failure within the frame triggers an alarm.bm100s
bm101The BM100 network card monitors the status of signals and power supplies within the frame.
The Ethernet port allows a third party SNMP management system to receive signal and power supply failure alarms.
The card is fitted into Slot 16 of the BC100 frame.bm101s
