COMNET FVT107 Overview

The 10-Bit Multi-Mode Digital Video Transmitter & 1 Bidirectional Data Channel from ComNet provides 10-bit digital video, 10 MHz bandwidth, and short-haul video quality, one bidirectional data channel, and dual optical port Point-to-Point topology. It features eight contact closures with LED indicators. Redundant Point-to-Point topology using the dual optical ports provides failsafe operation in the event of the loss of one fiber. Each optical port uses Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) to both transmit and receive on one optical fiber. Microprocessor-based logic sends contact information in packets that are ordered and encoded, ensuring extremely robust transmission.

Packets that are garbled, packets out of sequence, and transmission bit errors will not cause random changes of state on the contact relays. Also, the mechanical latching relays maintain their state even when the unit loses power. The data channel supports RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 (2- or 4-wire) interfaces. Plug-and-play design ensures ease of installation and no electrical or optical adjustments are required.
