StingRay100 AGC Ref 10MHz Transmit Fibre Converter


  • Description

    Model SRY-TX-Y-107, 100 series StingRay RF over Fibre module is designed to distribute 10MHz timing and reference across site up to 10 km in distance with minimal loss.

    It is a TRANSMIT module that converts a 10MHz reference signal to optical.

    The modules has AGC (Automatic Gain Control) with automatic link optimisation for FAST SET-UP.

    It is designed to be housed in a 100 series indoor chassis and can be housed alongside RF over Fibre modules.

    The StingRay 10MHz over Fibre module is available in a variety of RF connector and optical connector types. See below for related modules and chassis.

  • Fibre Connectors

    Optical fibre connectors are used to terminate the end of an optical fibre cable and enables quick connection.

    Angle Polished Connectors
    All of the connectors we offer are APC connectors (Angled Physical Contact). APC connectors are used as they provide extremely reliable way of achieving the high return losses essential in RF systems.
    APC connectors have the fibre end face polished at an 8-degree angle to prevent light that reflects from the interface from traveling back up the fibre.

    Due to the angle of the connector, the reflected light does not stay in the fibre core/cladding but instead leaks out into the cladding. APC connector return loss is around -60 dB.

    We offer 2 optical fibre connector types that offer low loss and create an extremely reliable connection:

    FC/APC (Angled ferrule connector / fibre connector).
    Ferrule diameter: 2.5 mm
    Coupling type: screw

    SC/APC (Angled subscriber connector / square connector / standard connector).
    Ferrule diameter: 2.5 mm
    Coupling type: Snap (push-pull coupling)
