** 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.


The OH-BD-51-1550-LC optical bi-directional gigabit Ethernet transceiver is an integrated part or plug in option for select LYNX Technik greenMachine, yellobrik, and Series 5000 products. This SFP module transmits an optical data signal and also receives an optical data signal over a single fiber link. TX Wavelength is a fixed 1550nm and suitable for distances up to 20km**. The RX wavelength is between 1260 and 1360nm. The module offers a data rate of 1.25Gbit/s (Gigabit Ethernet) and 1.063Gbit/s (Fiber Channel).

A socket, or “cage” is provided for the SFP in the supporting LYNX product for easy installation or upgrade. The SFP is hot swappable.

Note: Pair with the OH-BD-51-1310 for single link bidirectional Ethernet communications (WDM)
