RF VENUE RF OPTIX Fiber Conversion Kit
The RF Optix RF-Over-Fiber conversion boxes are the best and easiest way to extend a wireless antenna system over extreme distances. These boxes will convert RF energy received by an antenna into light for transmission down a singlemode fiber cable then re-convert that light back into RF for introduction into a wireless receiver rack.
Each simplex (one-way) system can convert and carry up to 24 channels of RF, perfect for most large scale productions.
The RF Optix fiber conversion boxes can also be used for IEMs, Intercom, or IFB transmitters, however there are limitations noted below as to how these can be used.
PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE POWER REQUIREMENTS FOR THE TRANSMIT CONVERSION BOX
The RF Optix can be used with nearly any device so long as the bandwidth remains inside 100-1000 MHz, and the input to the transmitter does not exceed 0 dBm/1 mW. Comms and IEMs will exceed this input power threshold. Therefore, to use the RF Optix with coms and IEMs, you must pad/attenuate the incoming RF to below 0 dBm/1 mW and, depending on your application, amplify the signal back up on the other side. Many of our customers have done just this with great success, but in general using the Optix for transmit applications is considered “off-label,” and should be performed by experienced techs or with our help.
