Fiber Optic Modem VCH-608

Fiber-optic modem VCH-608 is designed for receiving and transmitting signals of atomic clocks through a fiber optic communication line (FOCL).
The signals are:
− 1 PPS with delay compensation;
− sine 100 MHz with phase instability compensation.

Also, the VCH-608 generates sine signals with nominal frequencies of 5 and 10 MHz coherent to the input signal.
Reception/transmission of high precision signals via the FOCL is provided using a pair of modems: one is configured as a Transmitter and installed at the end of the FOCL where the signal source is located, the second as a Receiver and installed at the opposite end of the FOCL.

Key applications:
− metrology;
− time scale comparison systems;
− production and testing of high precision oscillators and devices based on them;
− scientific research.

Specifications

The optical characteristics of the modem correspond to Class 1 of laser safety, according to IEC 60825-2-2013.
The permissible loss of optical power in the FOCL between modems is 15 dB (corresponds to the length of the optical fiber 50 - 70 km).
The type of optical connectors is FC/APC.

Input electrical signals:
− sinusoidal: 100 MHz, root mean square (RMS) voltage value (1 0.2) V at a load of 50 Ω;
− pulse: 1 PPS, amplitude ≥ 2.5 V at a load of 50 Ω, pulse duration (15 5) microseconds, front duration < 3 ns, polarity positive.
Output electrical signals:
− sinusoidal: 5 MHz, 10 MHz, 100 MHz, RMS voltage value (1 0.2) V at a load of 50 Ω;
− pulse: frequency of 1 Hz (time scale), amplitude ≥ 2.5 V at a load of 50 Ω, pulse duration (15 5) microseconds, front duration < 3 ns, polarity positive.
