Fiber Optics from Toner Cable Equipment, Inc.
RF fiber optic transmitters and Receivers (nodes), such as those by Olson Technology (OTOT or OTOR series) Pacific Broadband Networks (LTM or ODN series), Emcore, Opticom, Ortel and Force, are used for the transmission of RF signals over single mode optical fiber. These are also known as Optical Links, Broadband optical transmitters, TV optical transmitters, and such. These are also called 1310 transmitters or 1550 transmitters depending on the optical wavelength used. The receivers or Optical receivers,(optical Nodes) are the device that receives the optical signal and converts it back to a RF signal (RF electrical signal) for local distribution. These optical Links are used in CATV optical networks for the Optical Transmission of Television channels.
In addition to RF fiber optic transmitters there are L band fiber links which are used for the transmission of the satellite IF between the antenna and receiver(s). These optical Links which are also referred to as satellite fiber links or L band transmitters / L band receivers, operate in the 950 to 1450, 950 to 1750, 950 to 2050 and 950 to 2250 MHz bands. Some new L band optical systems now operate up to 4000 MHz such as those by Olson Technology.
These fiber optic systems can transport the L band signal between the satellite antenna and the satellite receivers up to 40 Km or 23 miles with little or no degradation of the signal quality. By using DWDM or CWDM multiplexing technology these fiber optic links can transport several different polarizations or channel groups on the same fiber.
Toner Cable is a stocking distributor for all of these systems as well as all the needed accessories such as optical couplers, (fiber splitters) fiber connectors, fiber jumper cables, (fiber patch cords), fiber pigtails and fiber consumables like cleaners, attenuators and so on.
In addition to the fiber optic systems we also provide the fiber test equipment such as optical power meters, optical light sources, fiber identifiers, fault locators, and all associated components.
For installers that are doing RF fiber systems, they often need fusion splicers for the termination of the fiber optic cable. We have a whole range of fusion splicers from AFL and Emitor which are used to fusion splice two optical fibers together. Typically single mode fiber is terminated by splicing a fiber pigtail onto the end of the fiber cable. The fusion splicers usually include a cleaver which is used to make a clean cut on the fiber so the two pieces can be fused together in the fusion splicer. After the fusion splice is made it is protected with a splice sleeve which is then placed in a splice holder in a splice enclosure all of which are available from Toner Cable Equipment.
Whenever it comes to the transportation of any signals over fiber cable, Toner is your supplier of choice. We have been supplying fiber optic systems for more than 15 years. We have the experience in fiber optic systems to help with the fiber system design, system implementation and through to the final fiber system testing.
