StingRay200 DWDM AGC L-band Receive Fibre Converter with Mon port


  • Description

    The StingRay DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) 200 Series module of L-band over Fibre units are designed to provide compact fibre links, with up to 40 wavelengths on a single fibre cable, and transmission distance of 100's of km with optical amplifiers. 

    Model SRY-RX-L1-252 receive modules are used at the receive end to de-multiplex the separate wavelength giving a high and wide dynamic range with automatic link optimisation ensuring high quality L-band transmission. It is designed to work in a 200 series chassis with ETL's transmit module SRY-TX-L1-251.

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

  • DWDM Systems

    The StingRay DWDM system comprises of transmit modules and a multiplexer module to combine up to 40 wavelengths on to a single fibre cable at the transmit end .

    A demultiplexer module and receive modules are then used at the receive end to split the separate wavelengths.


  • 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

    Fibre Connector

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