On show are numerous additions to the company’s established BarnMini signal transport series. A new optical changeover switch is being introduced, the BarnMini-06. Barnfind said this device is easy to integrate with the GPO devices that are found in broadcast applications since it can provide its own power needed to drive the switch.
Also new, the BarnMini-05 is a compact way to combine an RS422/485, 4 x GPI and 4 x GPO, controllable via an Ethernet/SFP port. The unit can serve as an intelligent bridge between many third-party devices, for example transferring an RS422 signal or tally between two locations, or it can control BarnMini-06 in a redundancy set-up.
Barnfind is also introducing a four-channel CWDM mux as part of the BarnMini range, while two new optical splitters from Barnfind’s LGX series are now available as BarnMini-08-1:2 and BarnMini-08-1:4.
BarnMini-11 is the big brother to the BarnMini-01 product. It delivers point-to-point digital extension, but offers support for up to 12G. The BarnMini-11 can handle 12G, 10G, 4K and any other video format with a lower data rate than 12G.
