In order to connect remote subscriber panels to a wide-area intercom system easily, DELEC has developed a new optical-fibre converter for its oratis product family. The P2F Converter supports cable runs between subscriber panels and the oratis matrix frame.
This small module converts AES3 data with sampling frequencies of up to 192kHz transparently and bi-directionally into an optical signal. SFP modules serve as inputs and outputs on the P2F Converter, and these SFP modules can be selected by the customer depending on the preferred cable types and the distance that needs to be covered, up to 120km.
The P2F Converter can be used with a separate 12V power supply or powered via the subscriber panel expansion port. This port also enables expansion keypads, such as the oratis Key16, to be connected.
While the original purpose of the cable was to bridge long distances between subscriber panels and an oratis matrix frame, it is suitable for extending the range of other systems.
