Fiber Optic Transmitters

MSC Fiber Optic Transmitters provide a reliable and accurate means of transmitting electrical signals over fiber-optic cables from sources in high field environments or anechoic chambers to monitoring equipment in a low-field area. MSC's base analog signal transmitter is a small 2-channel module designed for monitoring signals with bandwidths from DC to 20 kHz. Gain jumpers for each channel provide a selection between four pre-configured full-scale signal input levels from +/-160mV to +/-480V. The transmitter is powered with three AA' alkaline batteries and is able to operate 100 or more hours before battery replacement. The transmitters exceed the existing automotive EMI requirement for operation in hostile RF environments and are validated for EMC at 200 V/m or more from 500 kHz to 2.0 GHz.
