Description

BC550R Electrical to Optical Receiver 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, Control, Audiopdf icon
The BC550R 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 BC550 perfect for adding cost effective fibre I/O to compact remote camera systems.

Each BC550R is housed in a compact robust enclosure with power provided via the PS12 unit.
The PS12 has an IEC mains inlet allowing easy adoption into standard equipment bays.
A 4 pin XLR allows the BC550R to be powered from a variety of external DC sources in the range 4.5 to 17 V.

The BC550 units are extremely compact fibre optic converters that are perfectly suited to provide interference free transmission and for extending the range of electrical signals, particularly HD-SDI and 3G-SDI signals.
The BC550R is available in singlemode, WDM and CWDM variants to suit any fibre application.
The BC550R can also be used to interface to any of the standard Bluebell enclosures.
