Global OTX Kit

Add to cart

Introducing the new OTx optical headend from Global Invacom. Fully compatible with all the current FibreIRS equipment and designed for future compatibility

Main features:

• Replaces both the ODU32 and fibre LNB.
• 1310 nm option either as a kit with a wideband LNB included or as a standalone unit.
• Fully compatible with all existing GTU’s and SwitchBlade units. The output frequency stacking has not changed.
• Familiar FC/PC connection.


 
• Wideband LNB input. Unlike the previous ODU32 that required a specific wholeband LNB with frequencies above 5GHz, the OTx unit uses standard H & V wideband inputs.• The wideband LNB supplied in the kit uses a local oscillator set to 10.41GHz• Single optical output with a 7dBm 1/32 split ratio. ODU32 units are more costly but would offer two 1/32 split optical outputs. If more than 32 splits are required, additional equipment will be needed.• IP65 rated and can therefore be installed outside. Intended to be fitted behind the dish itself. Ensure that it is mounted vertically.• 5G/700MHz filtered input accepting frequencies 88 - 694MHz. Additional channel processing with channel conversion is recommended with transmitters that still offer COM7 at channel 55.• Vertical leg powering of the wideband LNB only. For horizontal signal testing, it is recommended that power is fed to the LNB via the vertical leg connection of the powered OTx unit.

GLOBAL Fibre-IRS ODU32Optical KIT

IF +DTT/DAB LNB c/w ODU32 Optical Combiner
(1.5m N Connector HF Lead c/w PSU - DC via
'F' Connection), Optical output 1310um.

The Fibre system is designed to run alongside a voice and data optical network,either on its own dedicated fibre, or as an RF overlay. The system is designed to distribute DAB, DTT and the complete Satellite content from a single Headend to large number of dwellings.

The Headend is comprised of modules that receive and combine terrestrial and satellite signals to an optical output. The optical signal is then  split, amplified, then split further to feed multiple Passive Optical Networks (PONs) or ‘Point to Point’ connections.

Each home has it’s own Fibre-IRS optical to legacy converter, which outputs all of the inputs in their conventional format and at the original frequencies (DTT, DAB plus 4 Universal LNB O/Ps).

The Fibre-IRS Gateway Termination Unit (GTU) is designed to convert the optically received Fibre IRS signals (either via a dedicated Fibre or RF Overlay) to legacy format, e.g. with all inputs (DTT, DAB plus 4 quadrants of a universal LNB) being converted to their conventional format and at their original frequencies.

At the Head End, the F-IRSODU32 combines the signal from a Wholeband LNB (included with ODU32 Kit) with a DTT/DAB signal. The, now optical, digital IRS signal is output via 2 low power lasers contained within the ODU32.

Each of the 2 Optical outputs can be split, using GI Optical Splitters, to feed up to 32 FibreIRSGTU (Gateway Termination Units) Quads or Quartos.

  • Complete ‘end to end’ solution enabling unlimited tuners/STBs to be used within each connected home
  • Scalable, from 10’s to 10,000’s of homes
  • 'Plug & Play' Technology

The Quad Mark II GTU is designed to accept optical signals received from either the ODU32 or the Optical LNB over the Passive Optical Network (PON)

The GTU converts the optical signals back to exactly what was being received from the satellite and or the terrestrial antennas. The signals are then output on 4 individual F-type coaxial connectors.

The GTU now acts in the same way as the dish electronics (LNB) and supplies the receiver, via the coaxial cable, the correct satellite frequency band the receiver needs as channels are selected.

Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) - Digital Audio Broadcasts (DAB) & FM are available on all 4 of the outputs, they are simply extracted either by connecting one of the outputs directly to the desired reception equipment or by using Diplexed or Triplexed Outlets If all services are required at the same time.

The GTU can receive its power (10v…20v) either directly from a Set Top Receiver (Satellite/DTT) or it can be powered via the external jack connector (Power Supply sold separately).

The Quatro Mark II GTU is designed to accept optical signals received from either the ODU32 or the Optical LNB over the Passive Optical Network (PON)

The GTU converts the optical signals back to exactly what was being received from the satellite and or terrestrial antennas. The Quatro GTU is designed to be used in conjunction with the older traditional type

Multiswitch systems and outputs the 4 satellite frequencies plus the DTT/DAB/FM on 5 individual F type coaxial connectors. Used in conjunction with a GI – Approved fibre optic cable the Quatro GTU is a cost effective replacement for the bulky 5 core backbone coaxial cables needed in this type of system.

The GTU can receive its power (10v…20v) either directly from the Multiswitch on any one of the Horizontal/Vertical – High/Low Terrestrial inputs, alternatively it can be powered via the external jack connector (Power Supply sold separately).
