The OH-BD-12-1270-LC 12G SDI bidirectional optical transceiver is an integrated part or plug in option for select LYNX Technik yellobrik, greenMachine, and Series 5000 products. This SFP module transmits an optical SDI signal and also receives an optical SDI signal over a single fiber link. TX Wavelength is a fixed 1270nm and suitable for distances up to 10km**. The RX wavelength is between 1320nm and 1340nm. The module accommodates 11.88Gbit, 5.94Gbit, 2.97Gbit,and 1.485Gbit SDI signals conforming to SMPTE 2082, SMPTE 2081, SMPTE 424M, and SMPTE 292M.

A socket, or “cage” is provided for the SFP in the  supporting LYNX-Technik product for easy installation or upgrade. The SFP is hot swappable.This SFP is typically used in simple WDM closed loop point to point applications and is intended to be paired with the OH-BD-12-1330-LC SFP at the other end of the fiber link.

** Distance is an approximation. Actual distances achieved can be longer or shorter depending on the type of fiber cable and accumulated optical losses in the fiber link. Determine link losses and perform optical budget calculations to ensure correct operation.
