Sending RF signals over optical fibre offers many advantages such as ultra low RF loss over very long distances, signal immunity to electric and magnetic fields and easy deployment. RF over fibre is an ideal replacement for coaxial cable technology and Chronos designs systems that are plug-and-play replacements of existing copper networks working its partner PPM/ViaLite. RF over fibre links are typically used to distribute GPS for industries such as defence and security, GPS timing, cellular and specialist signal distribution applications.

OEM RF GPS Fibre Optic Link Module

The ViaLite RF GPS fibre-optic-link provides a high reliability, transparent cross-site connection between a GPS antenna and a GPS receiver.
 

ViaLite Outdoor Enclosure

ViaLite‘s ODE-A4 GPS can house up for four Blue OEM cross-site links with RF connections to the outside.

ViaLiteHD 3U Rack Chassis

The ViaLiteHD rack chassis is equipped with two 100W dual redundant power supplies and either a summary alarm card or an SNMP network control module.  Each ViaLiteHD chassis will accept up to 13 rack cards.  Since dual cards are available in ViaLiteHD this means a single rack chassis can support up to 26 links.  

ViaLiteHD 1U Rack Chassis

The ViaLiteHD1RU rack accepts up to three RF/data cards or two cards plus an SNMP control module. Both rack variants feature dual power supply modules. 

ViaLiteHD Integrated GPS Splitter

Using only 1RU of rack space, the new ViaLiteHD GPS Splitter is designed to minimise rack space and is available with 1-4 RF over fibre receivers with 8-32 outputs, depending on configuration. 

ViaLiteHD SNMP Network Monitoring Card

The ViaLiteHD SNMP network monitoring card fully monitors and controls ViaLiteHD RF over fibre systems. The card can also be used with optical fibre to extend existing Ethernet networks (eg from a control room to the antenna in a satellite earth station).
