VAN NUYS, CALIFORNIA, Feb 27 - Optical Zonu Corporation (OZC), a leading supplier of modules for analog
and digital signal transmission over optical fiber [CATV, RF over Fiber Optics, SONET/SDH, Gigabit Ethernet
and Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing - CWDM], announces the J-Series modular EIA 310D
Standard 19 inch 1U rack-mounted system which is capable of transporting any RF signal within the 10KHz
to 7 GHz range over fiber optic cable. With up to ten slots available, each slot can be populated with eight
individual OZ101 modules (each either a Tx or Rx), and the system may hold up to 64 RF over Fiber (RFoF)
interchangeable and hot-swappable OZ101 modules, as well as, two hot swappable power supplies. The JSeries
also accommodates multiples of other high performance, broadband, fiber optic transceivers,
transmitters and receivers. A cooled DFB Laser module, GbE switch (both SFP and RJ-45), CWDM built in
for multichannel support over single fiber and SNMP monitoring are but a few examples. The J-Chassis
provides flexibility, scalability, and functionality to help construct multi-task, RFoF and Digital subsystems.
Capable of delivering 10 KHz to 7 GHz Bandwidth, the J-Series is the ideal RF transmission gear for many of
today’s highest performance communications applications which require fiber optic cable. These include
Wi-Max/4G LTE, Cellular Backhaul, Remote Antenna Location, Satcom, In-Building Solutions, GPS Distribution and Timing Delay, among others. A built-in Front Fiber Management Bar makes for a tidy, well kept installation and the Medical Grade High Efficiency Universal Hot Swappable Power Supplies assure that the system stays powered in the unlikely event of a single power supply failure. For a fully populated chassis to operate in an uncontrolled environment two optional fans may be installed per each set of five transmission modules. The double-depth 10-Slot version has four fans and the single-depth 5-slot version has two fans. The fans are operated so to maintain a customer-set maximum temperature. The J-Series MTTF exceeds ten years at an ambient operating temperature of +50°C.
“Complex alarm functions are available for each transmitter and receiver via a micro USB connector in
both the front and rear panels of the J-Chassis”, explained Mr. Soyola Baasan, Director of Sales and Product
Line Management for the RFoF Product Line. “Front panel LED indicators provide visual status of each of
the inserted modules’ operation and cumulative link status may be read with granularity down to
individual parameters (e.g. received power, temperature, etc.). The USB connectivity enables up to 128
chassis, each with ten modules incorporating up to eight individual Tx or Rx, all of which may be monitored
via a single USB computer interface.”
Pricing for a basic chassis with single power supply and single slot containing eight J-101 Modules begins
under $6,000. Delivery is typically within six weeks ARO, depending upon configuration.
