High-res signals over fiber

Click here to enlarge image

The Pure Digital Fiberlink 7220 Series is billed as the first optical-fiber link to transmit high-resolution RGB and stereo audio signals over one singlemode or multimode cable strand. Designed to compete with twisted-pair solutions, the Fiberlink series features all-digital processing and trasmission operating a single wavelength, delivering clear video and high-fidelity audio with no signal degradation over the entire transmission path. Applications include installations for airport or transportation hubs, auditoriums, and stadiums.

Created to simplify the work of telco installers, ISPs, and corporate network and telecom administrators who deal with T-1 circuits, the D630 T-Spanner hand-held tester offers one-touch capabilities. With one button, the 630 will show whether a T-1 carrier is present, display signal strength, identify framing and line coding, and detect whether the payload data is changing. The tester also indicates standard network alarm conditions, and when framing is present, it displays cumulative counts of line and path code violations. The 630 will also respond to loop-up requests, and can let you know if your cable is properly connected to a T-1 port, or warn you if the connection appears to be open or shorted.

The HP UPS R5500 XR is an uninterruptible power system designed to provide power protection in tight spaces. The 5000 VA UPS delivers 4500 watts and combines hot swap batteries and electronics in only 3U (5.25 inches). With an electronic design using digital signal processors rather than a transformer, the device, according to the manufacturer, weighs 30% less than comparable products. It also provides voltage regulation without using the battery. Option cards are available for SNMP, networking, multi-server, and operating system control.

The FSM-50S is billed as the world's fastest singlemode core-alligning fusion splicer, with splice time reduced to nine seconds and splice protector shrink time educed to 35 seconds. Smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the FSM-40S, this new generation splicer is equipped with the company's Profile Allignment System for precise core-to-core fiber alignment, designed to enable consistent low splice loss and accurate loss estimartion regardless of fiber type or quality. The fiber clamp arms are incorporated into the wind protector assembly, reducing fiber placement operational time while contributing to faster cycle times and increased productivity rate.
