Dual Channel Electrical to Optical Transmitter 12G-SDI, 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI


Dual Channel Electrical to Optical Transmitter 12G-SDI, 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI The BC365T is a transmitter card for the conversion of two independent 12G-SDI signals into fibre optical cable. Each incoming signal is auto-sensed and then equalised prior to conversion and transmission down a separate single optical fibre. All Bluebell cards are designed to retain maximum integrity of the signal path offering excellent jitter free optical transport. Each channel can operate in non-reclocking mode and handles data rates from 50 Mb/s to 12 Gb/s. The BC365T occupies a single slot in the BC100i 3RU 19″ rack-mounting frame which can hold up to 15 single slot cards. The compact BC160i 1RU is available for up to six cards. Signal and card monitoring is achieved through SNMP monitoring in the BM102i network card, or through the BM102i network monitoring webpages. For stand alone applications the BC365T can be housed in an individual rugged enclosure.
