The Elvey Fibre Promotion

Leading International Brands at Local Prices

Optical fibre transmission equipment is steadily replacing copper wire as an appropriate means of communication signal transmission. Optical fiber is used as a medium for telecommunications and networking because it is flexible and can be bundled as cables. They span the long distances between local phone systems as well as providing the backbone for many network systems. Other system users include cable television services, university campuses, office buildings, industrial plants, and electric utility companies.

Fibre optics offers an elegant and cost effective solution to copper wires. Fibre has a wider bandwidth and lower transmission loss characteristic than coax, permitting high definition pictures to be transmitted over very long distances without the use of in-line amplifiers or repeaters. And because the signal is transmitted as a beam of light rather than an electric current, the system is totally immune to any form of electrical interference, including that from adjacent conductors or even high voltage power lines.

“Fibre optics has been used extensively in both Europe and America and is one of the most reliable and cost effective mediums to transfer data in any application”, says Francois Smuts, CCTV Product Manager of Elvey Security Technologies.

Elvey can meet all your fibre needs. Elvey Security Technologies provides a comprehensive range of optical fibre transmission equipment from world-renowned manufacturer GE Security. Elvey introduces its flagship fibre equipment: Two-way Multiprotocol Data (S710D), Miniature Video Transmitter (S700VT-MST) and Dual Channel One-Way Video Receiver (S702VR-RST).

The S700VT series video transmitter is designed to transmit standard analog baseband composite video up to 5.2km. The series provides for one channel, one-way video over one multimode fibre. Standard features include: one-way video transmission, 8 MHz video bandwidth, 13 db optical budget with S700VR or S702 receiver.

The S702VR series video receiver meets the challenge of a low cost, high performance fibre optic video receiver. This series provides for two channels of baseband composite video up to 5.2km over two multimode fibres. Standard features include: Optical AGC, 8 MHz video bandwidth and 13 dB optical budget. The S710D Data Transceiver provides two-way transmission of multiprotocol data over two multimode fibres. Standard features include: optical AGC, SMARTS diagnostics, 13 dB optical budget and supports RS-232, TTL, RS422, RS485, Manchester, Biphase and SensorNet protocols.
