EMCORE’s openGear® OPG-1L RF fiber optic links are optimized to perform in the 40 MHz to 2.3 GHz frequency range, for IF- and L-Band Satellite signals, providing transparent signal transport for satellite antenna applications on an open architecture platform.
The OPG-1L transmitter and receiver modules may be housed in the same chassis as with EMCORE’S openGear® HD video, audio, serial data and USB extension / distribution cards, allowing full monitoring and control of each module via the DashBoard Network Management System (NMS).
The OPG-1L was designed to be fully compatible with the openGear® standard for terminal equipment or cable head-end design. This means that when you install an openGear® enclosure, you can then purchase additional insert cards from different manufacturers to be used in the same enclosure. The standard enclosure is a 19” rackmount frame that can hold up to 20 insert cards. A separate module handles the management and control systems, and allows for local or remote interfaces. Each enclosure utilizes 2U of rack space, maximizing the overall usage of the equipment rack.
The OPG-1L’s Rear Interface Modules may be preinstalled with its cabling, without corresponding PCBA cards. This allows the user to anticipate future expansion needs without significantly increasing the intial investment, and without having to access the rear panel and cabling once installed. The user simply purchases correponding PCBA cards on an as-needed basis then slides them into place from the front of the frame, effortlessly locking them into the Rear Interface Module.
