Fibre-optic transmitters contribute to reduced turnaround times
Two fibre optic transmitters from TT Electronics are engineered for reliability and consistent high-output performance, while enabling equipment makers to reduce turnaround times and simplify procurement and planning.
The OPF350A and OPF352A are based on 850nm LED technology. Lead times have been improved to 10 weeks, reports the company.
The OPF350A and OPF352A are equivalent alternatives to the existing OPF370A and OPF372A transmitters and are provided in the same ST-style package. The OPF350A and OPF352A fibre optic transmitters also improve performance with up to eight per cent more optical power with various fibre sizes such as 50/125 to 200/300 micron.
The fibre optic transmitters are intended for use in telecomms and datacomms operating up to 35MHz. Typical uses include power generation communications, copper-to-fibre media conversion, industrial Ethernet equipment, intra-system fibre-optic links, and video surveillance systems.
The OPF350A is in a TO-18 package and is suitable for applications that demand high thermal stability across the industrial temperature range of -40 to +100 degrees C.
The OPF352A is offered in the ST-style receptacle, suitable for PCB or panel mounting. It is supplied pre-mounted, pre-tested with fibre to assure performance, and ready to use, with essential fixings and a protective dust cap included.
