DC to 50 Megabaud Versatile Link Fiber Optic Transmitter for 1 mm POF

Currently Viewing:

The AFBR-1629Z transmitter utilizes a 650 nm LED source with integrated optics and driver IC for efficient coupling into 1 mm Polymer Optical Fiber (POF).

The transmitter input are compatible with TTL logic families. The transmitter operates any type of signal from DC up to 50 MBd at distances up to 50 meters with 1 mm POF.

The transmitter is a 4-pin device, packed in Versatile Link housing. Versatile Link components can be interlocked (N-plexed together) to minimize space and to provide dual connections with the duplex connectors. Various simplex and duplex connectors, as well as POF cables are available for Versatile Link components.
