Fiber optics can be seen as the gold standard in data and video transmission cables. Compared to metal-based cables (e.g. RCA, BNC, UTP), fiber optic wiring links are far less susceptible to signal attenuation and are also immune to electromagnetic interference. The result is that fiber can be routed over much greater distances before needing amplification. Just as important is the higher bandwidths supported by fiber optic - up to 111Gbps per light channel, though 10Gbps or 40Gbps is most often utilized. Finally, it is virtually impossible to illicitly tap into a fiber cable the way that can be done with copper-based cables. The Pelco CR8104MSTR highlights all of these attributes in an industrial grade yet uncomplicated device. As such, it is the tool of choice for demanding security applications needing the ability to send large amounts of data, over long distances, and in a secure manner.
Note: Optional powered rack chassis available (RK5000-3U / RK5000PS-3U)
Because of its conformal coating, this fiber module can be used in environments with relative humidity above 95% (condensing).
Bidirectional Data Transmission
You can use this fiber module to send and recieve PTZ and other control signals under the protocols RS-232, RS-422, RS-485 (2-wire/4-wire), Manchester and Bi-Phase communication
Meets NEMA TS 2 and Caltrans Traffic Signal Control Standards
This fiber module is designed to meet NEMA TS 2 and Caltrans traffic signal control equipment standards for ambient operating temperature, mechanical shock and vibration, humidity with condensation, high-line/low-line voltage conditions and transient voltage protection (certification pending).
No Performance Adjustments Required
This unit is designed to attain peak performance without requiring any adjustments on your part.
Optional Multi-Unit Powered Rack Box Available
To save desktop space and for better power management, you can install this unit in an RK5000 series rack chassis. The Pelco RK5000PS-3U 19" rack chassis holds 12 fiber modules and also has a built-in power supply that provides electricity to all modules. There's also the RK5000PS-3U rack chassis, which has room for 14 fiber modules but does not come with a built-in power supply.
