|The new hybrid transmission products deliver flexibility in terms of inputs and transmission channels
To help ease the transition from analogue to IP surveillance systems for installers and end users, American Fibertek Inc. (afi) highlighted a number of new hybrid fibre transmission products at ISC West (booth #10072). Available in a variety of configurations, these hybrid products deliver flexibility in terms of inputs, transmission channels and type, and more.
“The transition from analogue surveillance systems to IP can be daunting, particularly when faced with the significant cost of new cameras and edge devices, and infrastructure,” said Jack Fernandes, President and CEO of afi. “Our new hybrid fibre transmission products provide an alternative to the expensive rip-and-replace option, allowing end users to make the transition to IP gradually as their budget allows.”
The 91PXXXXE-SL Series Single mode Transceiver offers one-way digital broadcast quality video, and bi-directional audio, two 10/100 Base-TX connections, Ethernet capability and up to four multi-protocol data and/or contact closures in one single mode optical fibre.
The 92P5E-SL Series Analogue/IP Hybrid Transmission System transmits two channels of high-quality 10-bit digitised video, one channel of bi-directional MPD multi-protocol RS data and two ports of 10/100 Base-T Ethernet on one single mode optical fibre using WDM technology. For additional flexibility, audio channels may also be substituted for the data or contact channels. The system’s Ethernet ports feature auto negotiation to automatically configure the 92P5E-SL for the correct speed, and auto MDI/MDIX operation eliminates the potential need for crossover cables.
The 91P3335E-SL Series Transceiver provides one-way digital video (high-quality 10-bit), two 10/100 Base-TX ports, Ethernet capability, three RS232 data ports and one RS485 port on one single mode optical fibre. The 91P3335-SL is completely transparent, with auto negotiation features that automatically configure the unit for the correct Base-TX speed, as well as auto MDI/MDIX operation to eliminate the need for crossover cables.
