500DA2Q-3G

3G/HD/SD-SDI Dual Reclocking Distribution Amplifier (32 1x4 DA's in 3RU Rack Space)

  • VistaLINK® enabled
  • 3Gb/s enabled

The 500DA2Q-3G Dual 3G/HD/SD-SDI Reclocking Distribution Amplifier provides the highest density DA in the industry allowing up to 32 3Gb/s, HD-SDI or SD-SDI Distribution amplifiers in a 3RU rack space. This module provides inexpensive distribution of your SMPTE ST 424 (3Gb/s), SMPTE ST 292-1 (1.5Gb/s), SMPTE ST 259 (270Mb/s), DVB-ASI or SMPTE ST 310 (19.4Mb/s) or any other SDI signal within the 143Mb/s to 1.5Gb/s range.

The 500DA2Q-3G features two auto-equalized inputs and can be individually set via jumpers for either reclocking or non-reclocking.

The 500DA2Q-3G is housed in the 500FR exponent frame that will hold up to 16 modules.

Features
  • Normal reclocked mode for SMPTE ST 424 (3Gb/s), SMPTE ST 292-1 (1.5Gb/s) and SMPTE ST 259 (270Mb/s)
  • Jumper selectable non-reclocked mode for all other SMPTE ST 344, SMPTE ST 259, SMPTE ST 310 and DVB-ASI data rates
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame with no BNC disconnect required
  • Independent isolated output drivers to ensure no cross channel loading effects (i.e. no need to terminate unused outputs)
  • Outputs maintain polarity from input to output for DVB-ASI applications
  • Tally output on Frame Status bus upon loss of input signal for quality monitoring
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring via SNMP (using VistaLINK® PRO) when installed in 500FR frame with 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller
  • Inputs
  • 2 inputs
  • SMPTE ST 424 (3Gb/s), SMPTE ST 292-1 (1.5Gb/s), SMPTE ST 259 (270Mb/s) when set to reclocking mode
  • SMPTE ST 344 (540Mb/s), SMPTE ST 259 (360Mb/s, 143Mb/s), SMPTE ST 310 (19.4Mb/s), DVB-ASI when not reclocking
  • Return Loss > 15dB to 1.5GHz and > 10dB up to 3GHz
  • Auto equalization to 80m at 3Gb/s, 100m @ 1.5Gb/s and 350m @ 270Mb/s
  • Outputs
  • 4 reclocked outputs per input
  • Return Loss > 10dB to 1.5GHz
  • Wideband jitter < 0.2 UI
  • Card Edge LEDs
  • Reclocker rate (3 LEDs)
  • Reclocker locked
  • Reclocker bypass
  • Module Health Status
