L-Band Fiber yellobrik Transmitter / Receiver

LYNX Technik to Debut L-Band Fiber yellobrik Transmitter / Receiver Technology at IBC 2012

LYNX Technik AG, provider of modular interfaces is launching a new yellobrik L-Band to fiber transmitter and fiber to L-Band receiver set at IBC 2012, stand 8.C76.

The yellobrik OTX 1910 is a fiber optic transmitter for seamlessly sending analog radio frequency (RF) L-Band signals over a single-mode fiber cable.  This unit offers a switchable 13 or 18V LNB power selector, which toggles between horizontal and vertical polarization.  It also includes an internal 22 KHz on/off low-noise block tone generator for selecting high or low frequency ranges.

The yellobrik ORX 1900 is a fiber to L-Band receiver for accepting and restoring RF signals from a single-mode fiber.  It accepts a wide range of optical inputs - 1270nm - 1610nm, and includes two RF outputs for signal distribution or monitoring.


Both yellobriks support L-Band ranges from 700 MHz to 2300 MHz. They can be used as standalone or housed in the 1RU yellobrik rack frame for larger system applications.

In conjunction, the OTX 1910 transmitter and ORX 1900 receiver make a robust and cost-effective fiber optic RF delivery system for distances up to 10 kilometers (6.2 miles).  Since single-mode fiber optic cable has very limited loses and is not subject to the usual interference and noise copper cable experiences, the antenna (or dish) can be located many kilometers from the receiver.


Together they provide an ideal fiber solution for a number of satellite applications including satellite to studio connections, as well as transporting L-Band signals to satellite receivers.  This solution set is also suitable for transporting L-Band RF signals from remote television sites to headend facilities and any other application that requires a high performance alternative to coaxial cable transmission of L-Band signals.

The yellobrik OTX 1910 and ORX 1900 will be available shortly after the product introduction at IBC.

LYNX Technik will be at IBC 2012, stand 8.C76.
