Dual Channel 1310 nm Optical Transmitter Cartridge with Duplex LC

Small form-factor pluggable (SFP) optical module video cartridge for Densité frames, standard NVISION 8500 Series routers and LUMO cards.

The SFP-TT-S13S13-LC is a dual channel single mode optical transmitter that supports signals up to 3 Gb/s as per SMPTE ST 259, SMPTE ST 292 and SMPTE ST 424, including SDI pathological test patterns described in SMPTE engineering guideline SMPTE EG 34 and SMPTE recommended practices SMPTE RP 178 and SMPTE RP 198. The unit includes two independent Fabry-Perot 1310 nm laser transmitters.

  • 3G/HD/SD SDI:
    • SMPTE ST 424, SMPTE ST 292
    • SMPTE ST 259-ABCD compliant
  • Supports video pathological patterns for SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI
  • Dual transmitter with duplex LC
  • RoHS-6 compliant
  • Hot pluggable

Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) Optical Module Cartridges (Video)

The Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) optical module cartridges for video are small, hot-pluggable devices used to provide fiber connectivity to 3G/HD/SD SDI products from either a Densité frame (they can be used with any video card that has a rear module with an "F" name suffix (i.e., HDA-193N-DRP-F), irrelevant of which Densité frame is hosting the card), standard (not hybrid) NVISION 8500 Series routers, LUMO cards and PicoLink FIO-991p. By using single-mode fiber instead of coaxial cables, these interfaces can be used over much longer distances without degrading signal quality, which is very useful when carrying 3G signals.
