The Black OEM from ViaLite is the latest in the Mil-Aero range of stand-alone RF over fiber modules. Operating in frequencies from 10 MHz to 6 GHz, it provides the widest RF bandwidth for a product in this format and covers VHF, UHF, L, S and C-bands.
With what the company describes as 'an industry-leading' spurious free dynamic range (SFDR) of 109 dB/Hz at 1500 MHz and 104 dB/Hz at 5 GHz, it is the widest SFDR RF over fibre product in outdoor rated module format. In addition to this, the Black OEM features a USB-C field controllable option, which enables the user to adjust the gain settings accessed by a port which is secreted behind a waterproof plug.
The product is in a metal casing, has a wide operating temperature and is IP55 rated, meaning it is protected against most outdoor usage scenarios. It is the first module from ViaLite that can be installed outside without the need for an enclosure.
It is available as a single transmitter or receiver and there is a high output power version which offers up to +10 dBm with low output harmonics. The Black OEM is available as part of the Mil-Aero 6 GHz Link Pair but can also be used for other applications such as Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), cellular and network timing, critical communications and disaster recovery.
An IP rated power supply can be provided and the power, RF and optical connections are via secure screwed in connectors.
