3Gbit SDI Optical Receiver (High Sensitivity)



The OH-RX-APD is a very high sensitivity SDI optical receiver supplied as a plug in option for select LYNX Technik products. This module facilitates the conversion of the SDI optical signal into an electrical signal for further processing within these products. Supports all wavelengths between 1260 and 1620nm according to ITU-T G694.2. The high sensitivity performance provides a wider operational headroom than the standard OH-RX-1-LC receiver for long haul applications. The module accommodates 270Mbit / 1.485Gbit and 2.97Gbit SDI signals conforming to SMPTE 424M, 292M, 259M.

A socket, or “cage” is provided for the SFP in the supporting LYNX product for easy installation or upgrade. The SFP is hot swappable.
