  • Supports SDI/ASI/DVB and SMPTE 310 up to 3Gbit/s
  • Selection of 18 wavelengths available for CWDM applications
  • Reclocking or non-reclocking mode for each channel
  • Auto-detects input clock rate
  • Transparently pass data between 15Mbit/s and 3Gbit/s in non-reclocked mode.
  • Input presence detection with LED indication for each channel
  • Internal 4×6 signal router for flexible I/O mapping (remote only)
  • LC fiber optic connections, single mode fiber
  • Fiber SFP modules secured in backplane. Module can be freely removed or replaced without disconnection of fiber cables
  • Remote control and status monitoring when used with the APPolo control system
  • SNMP error reporting when used with master controller option
  • Hot Swappable


The OTX 5840 is a flexible four channel SDI electrical to optical converter suitable 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.

The module provides 4 SDI optical outputs and 2 SDI electrical outputs which can be mapped using the integrated 4×6 signal router. 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.

Select from 18 wavelengths for CWDM applications, or select all 1310nm wavelengths for non CWDM applications. Up to 10 modules, (or 40 fiber TX 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.
