Sennheiser fibre transmitter/receiver solution stretches 25km

Sennheiser has introduced two fibre optic products designed to enable remote receiving aerials for radio microphones to be placed at long distance.

The FO-TX2-EC fibre optical transmitter and FO-RX2-EC fibre optical receiver are compact units that allow radio mic receiving aerials to be placed at up to 25km from their associated receivers.

The antennas can be placed at much greater distances from the receivers than would be possible using any type of coaxial cable.

Built into a weatherproof 1200 Peli Case, the FO-TX2-EC transmitter is designed to convert the UHF radio signals from two receiving antenna feeds and transmit them down two cores of single mode optical fibre.
