The BC551R is a receiver for the conversion of an optical signal into electrical 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI and ASI. The incoming optical signal is fed to a trans-impedance and limiting amplifier before being electrically reclocked on the output.
A reverse path for an audio or control data signal is carried on a second fibre making the BC551 perfect for adding cost effective fibre I/O to compact remote camera systems.
The BC551R is available in multimode, singlemode, WDM and CWDM variants to suit any fibre application.
The BC551R occupies a single slot in the BC100-3RU 19″ rack-mounting frame which can hold up to 15 single slot cards. This dual functionality allows up to 30 channels of video to be transmitted or received from a single 3RU frame.
Signal and card monitoring is achieved through SNMP monitoring in the BM102 network card.
Alternatively GP-Output alarms can be triggered via the BM100 module.
For stand alone applications the BC551R can be housed in an individual rugged enclosure.
