HIRSCHMANN Electronics has added the optical receiver OEVR 150M Sync to its range of products for video transmission via fibre-optic cable.
Used in combination with the fibre-optic transmitter OSVR 150M-PCI, this new device enables VGA signals (Video Graphics Adapter) to be transmitted from computer to screen over a distance of up to 600 metres - at present conventional connection cables can only bridge distances of five metres.
For the user, fibre-optic technology does not only mean greater flexibility but also a higher degree of operational reliability since this technology is immune to electromagnetic fields.
The receiver has three optical inputs (BFOC 2.5) and one electrical output (Sub-HD). The analog bandwidth of 150MHz supports a graphics card resolution of max. 2048 x 1536 pixels.
Due to its compact size, 129W x 35H x 31D millimetres, the device can be installed discreetly almost anywhere.
In addition to the optical transceiver system, Hirschmann Electronics also offers converters to allow mouse and keyboard to be connected via fibre-optic cables.
This allows the computer and screen to be set up far away from each other without any negative effect on their functionality.
The automation and networking product range from Hirschmann Electronics is represented in Australia by the automation technology products division of ABB Australia. ABB Australia 02 9255 3999.
