The ULTIMODE V-204DAO video converter uses the latest optical technology which ensures transmission of 4 video channels and 1 one-way RS-485 data channel (in opposite direction - from the video receiver to the video transmitter) via single optical fiber. It is possible due to the use of wavelength-division multiplexing technology (WDM) - different wavelengths carry different signals, over one strand of fiber, which significantly lowers installation costs. The L2423 set contains 2 modules - video transmitter marked "T" and video receiver marked "R" - and 2 power supplies (5VDC/3A).
One of the devices transmits optical signal in the III transmission window (1550 nm), whereas the second uses the II window (1310 nm). Sensitivity of the receiver and output power of the transmitter is adapted to transmit information up to 20 km. In the case of shorter distances (up to 2 km), it is required to use additional 2dB attenuators by the receivers. They will protect them against "burning". Durable laser diode with Fabry-Perot resonator ensures the mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) at least of 100000 hours (more than 11 years).
The set is compatible with NTSC/PAL/SECAM systems and ensures high quality transmission of live video over distances up to 20 km, much longer than those offered by standard devices. The possibility of sending control signal (RS-485) from the video receiver to the video transmitter allows to use PTZ cameras. Alarm channel provides possibility of using alarm sensors.

Why to choose fiber optics:
  • possibility of sending signal over long distances (low attenuation of optical fibers - e.g. for the wavelength of 1550 nm the attenuation is about 0.2 dB per kilometer, which means that the signal can be sent at a distance of 200 km - without regeneration)
  • high-volume information transfer via single fiber
  • resistance to electromagnetic interference
  • resistance to weather conditions (humidity, electrostatic discharges and others)
  • no tapping possibility
  • low weight and small dimensions
ULTIMODE video converters are widely used for the transmission of CCTV signals over long distances and in areas exposed to harsh weather conditions. Optical fibers provide full electrical insulation and resistance to electromagnetic interference. Below there is a sample application of ULTIMODE converters.
