NAB 2012: LYNX Technik expands the yellobrik road

LYNX Technik is launching four passive CWDM multiplexers / demultiplexers. The compact signal processors can accept, combine, transmit and receive up to four fibre optic signals over a single link. Therefore, several signals can share a single fibre optic link. A single unit can perform multiplexer as well as demultiplexer functions. The models include the OCM 1841, OCM 1842, OCM 1843 and OCM 1844. These multiplexers support various Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) wavelengths from 1270 nm to 1610 nm. Each model has four channels that are each assigned to a different wavelength. The new yellobriks use passive optical technology to multiplex or demultiplex a number of optical carrier signals onto a single optical fibre by using different wavelengths of laser light. This technique also facilitates bidirectional communications over a single strand of fibre. All four yellobriks feature an optical UPG port, which facilitates cascading the four modules together for a total of up to 16 channels. The modules can be used standalone or integrated into a 190-inch rack using a rack tray option, which is ideal for system installations. "We always aim to offer our customers practical choices and options when it comes to our technology," commented Winfried Deckelmann CEO of LYNX Technik. "Our current 9-channel multiplexer / demultiplexer devices may be too large for small installations therefore we are now offering a range of smaller 4-channel building blocks." N4433
