  • Remote control and status monitoring when used with the APPolo control system
  • Hot Swappable


The ORX 5800 is a flexible four channel SDI optical to electrical converter for SDI/ASI-DVB video signals up to 3Gbit/s. Each channel has automatic input clock rate and signal presence detection with selectable signal reclocking. This module is ideally suited for demanding digital multi-format broadcast and professional applications.

Two of the input channels can be switched between standard electrical SDI inputs or optical inputs. In non-reclocked mode the module will transparently pass any data between 15Mbit/s and 3Gbit/s. Support for ASI/DVB and SMPTE 310 signals is also provided.
The standard mode of operation will directly map each input to its corresponding output. An integral 4×4 signal router can be utilized to change 1/O channel mapping when using the LYNX control system.

Up to 10 modules or 40 fiber RX channels can be supported in a standard LYNX 2RU rack frame. The Fiber SFP sub-modules are secured on the backplane allowing for module removal and hot swapping without removing any modules rear I/O fiber connections. Full remote control, status monitoring and error reporting is possible when using the APPolo control system.
