FEATURES AND ADVANTAGES
- One analog plus four digital channels
- DC to 12.5 MHz analog bandwidth
- Input ranges of ± 1 V and ± 5 V
- Analog signal digitized to 12 bit precision
- Four independent digital (TTL) channels
- DC to 24 Mb/s data rate (each channel)
The LTX-5510 enables the precise conveyance of one analog channel plus four
digital channels of information over fiber optic links ranging from meters to
more than 10 kilometers.
Incoming analog data is digitized to 12-bit precision at 50 mega-samples per
second and transmitted over optical fiber at one giga-bit per second. The receiver
acquires this digital data and accurately reconstructs the analog signal at
the far end of the fiber optic link.
The analog signal bandwidth is from DC to 12.5 MHz ( -3 dB ). Two input voltage
ranges are provided, ± 1 Volt and ± 5 Volts. The input impedance
of the transmitter analog channel may be set to 50 ohms or 1 megohm (75 ohms
Multiplexed along with the analog data, are four independent TTL/CMOS/LVTTL
digital signals that may be toggled at rates of up to 24 Mb/s.
Two models are available. Selection depends on the fiber type and the length
of the fiber optic link that is required. The LTX-5510-850 transmits at 850
nm over multi-mode fiber optic links of up to 500 meters in length, while the
LTX-5510-1310 transmits at 1310 nm over single-mode fiber to span distances
exceeding 10 km.
Applications include data acquisition for plasma physics experiments, signal
transmission and control of equipment at high voltage potentials, transmission
of high quality video, and precise noise-free signal transmission in hostile
