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 offers systems that are plug-and-play replacements of existing copper networks from its partner ViaLite. RF over fibre links are typically used in satellite comms, broadcast communications, antenna remoting, military 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 Enclosures

The ViaLite suite of outdoor enclosures – the Satcom6 and ODE range – provide a cost-effective housing solution which can be used indoors or outdoors, and in environmentally harsh conditions. The units can be free-standing or wall/pole mounted.

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 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).
