Telecast Fiber Systems RAT4-KIT1-T-MXLR Overview

The Rattler 4 Miniature Single Link Transmitter and Receiver over Fiber Kit from Telecast Fiber Systems consists of a transmitter, a receiver, two power supplies, and an injection-molded road case. The transmitter module accepts one 75Ω coaxial input and converts it into an optical stream via a standard ST connector. The receiver then reconverts the uncompressed signal back to a BNC output.

The transmitter features equalization for long lengths of coaxial cable, so you can use them at nearly any point in your HD-SDI chain. The receiver module automatically reclocks the incoming SMPTE standard signal at 270 Mbps, 1.5 Gbps, and 3 Gbps. Rattler 4 modules are inter-operable with industry standard optical HD-SDI signals to/from other Miranda equipment such as routers, DAs, and fiber converters from the Densité Series, NVISION routers, picoLink converters and the Telecast Series including Python, Telethon, and Terrapin products. They make it easy to expand the systems that you already have and create a wide variety of network topologies.

The units include LEDs to indicate Power ON, HD-SDI signal presence, and received optical power level (receiver unit). This provides critical system diagnostic information without the need of additional test equipment, such as optical power meters. The Rattlers can either use their own in-line power supplies or accept any DC voltage from 5 to 16V via a mini-XLR4 jack.

Operating wavelength of 1310nm
Supports embedded audio
Up to 31 miles transmission range
