OZ81x – Optimum RFoF TRx

Home / RF over Fiber / Standalone Modules / OZ81x – Optimum RFoF TRx

OZ81x is a compact, stand-alone RF over Fiber or analog over fiber transceiver offering RS232 transport and AGC (automatic gain control) total link. A pair of OZ81x transceivers will create a two-way bidirectional RF to Optical and Optical to RF link. OZ81x can also be configured as a linear (analog) individual Transmitter (Tx) or Receiver (Rx) units, if necessary. OZ810 is an excellent alternative to using coaxial cable systems and offer significant improvements in the transport of high frequency RF signals in their native format reliably across 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 GHz (OZ810) or 6.0 GHz (OZ816).

The OZ81x is designed as a compact RF plug and play device which is easily integrated into your existing platform. It has very low failure rate with an MTTF at room temperature of 20 years. Virtually any analog RF signal that falls within its bandwidth range can be transported over fiber optic cable using OZ81x modules. Typical applications in which the OZ81x can be utilized include, but are not limited to, IF Satcom Band, L Band, S Band, C Band, GPS, PCS Cellular, Wi-Max, 4G LTE, VHF, UHF, QAM, Timing and Frequency signal distribution over fiber and custom RF over Fiber solutions.

All OZ810 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. OZ81x Rx features a high performance InGaAs photodiode and Tx is based upon linear Isolated DFB or FP Lasers operating at 1.3 µm or 1.5 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. Alarm monitoring, RS232 interface and power input is via male DB-9 connector and +12 Volts DC is required to operate this device.
