OZ600 is a low-cost broadband (3GHz) RF over Fiber or analog over fiber transceiver. A pair of OZ600 transceivers will create a two-way bidirectional RF to Optical and Optical to RF link. OZ600 can also be configured as individual linear (analog) Transmitter (Tx) or Receiver (Rx) units, if necessary. OZ600 is an excellent alternative to using coaxial cable systems and offers significant improvements in the transport of high frequency RF signals in their native format reliably across a broad range of frequencies. It has low Noise Figure (NF) and high Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR), with operational frequencies from 47 MHz to 3.0 GHz, or more.
The OZ600 is designed as a compact RFoF plug and play device that is easily integrated into your existing platform. It has a very low failure rate with an MTTF at room temperature of 20 years. Virtually any analog RF signal which falls within its bandwidth range can be transported over fiber optic cable using the OZ600 modules. Typical applications in which the OZ600 may be utilized include, but are not limited to, IF Satcom Band, L Band, GPS, PCS Cellular, UHF and VHF signal distribution over fiber and other custom RF over Fiber solutions.
All OZ600 modules are equipped with a Manual Gain Control (MGC) via a potentiometer accessible from the top of the box by a small screw driver (or “tweeker”) to ease field integrations. Standard optical connector is SC/APC for low back reflection but FC/APC is also available. OZ600 Rx features a high performance InGaAs photodiode and Tx is based upon a linear Isolated FP Laser operating at 1.3 µm (CWDM LD are available for higher system integration). Average Automatic Power Control (AAPC) is incorporated for optimal optical power stability over the full temperature range. RF interface is via a 50 Ohm SMA connector or 75ohm BNC. Alarm monitoring and power input is via male DB-9 connector and +12 Volts DC is required to operate this device.
