Lynx Technik has launched seven new fibre yellobriks. These new models are said to offer a cost-effective solution to convert fibre to copper Ethernet, copper to fibre, fibre to fibre (multi-mode <> single-mode), or simply to extend electrical Ethernet signals over a bidirectional single fibre; with support up to 10Gbit/s.

By using yellobrik Ethernet-fibre conversion solutions, facilities can take advantage of fibre optic cabling to extend the reach of 10Gbit/s Ethernet signals over a greater distance – up to 20km/12 miles. These converters enable the connections of copper-based Ethernet equipment to single and multi-mode fibre optic cable, all while offering a stable and high-speed signal connection between locations.

OET 1910 and OET 1940 models have been added to the range

The new yellobriks provide a variety of connectivity solutions where cabling may be a challenge, or where long-distance signal distribution is required. They are hot swappable and hot pluggable, and user-friendly with all the instructions and indicators printed directly on the units themselves.

The OET 1910 models offer fibre-to-copper as well as copper-to-fibre conversion and include two 10Gbit/s ports per module with a maximum throughput of 20Gbit/s in full duplex mode. The OBD 1910 models provide a 10Gbit/s Ethernet extension over a bidirectional single fibre, also including two ports per module with a maximum throughput of 20Gbit/s in full duplex mode.

The OET 1940 models are multi-functional in that they provide fibre-to-copper, copper-to-fibre as well as fibre-to-fibre conversion. They also support CWDM fibre transmission for the full 18 wavelengths of coverage. In addition, a variety of SFP fibre transceiver modules are available as add-ons depending on the application and the distance of transmission required.

All these new modules can be used as standalone units or mounted onto 19in yellobrik rack trays to build a larger conversion system and offer optional fibre adapter kits for adding ST or SC fibre connections on the yellobriks.
