2808 79 Channel CATV Optical Receiver DATASHEET | JULY 2014 FIBER OPTICS The 2808 79 Channel VSB/AM Optical Receiver provides CATV distribution headend operators with an extensive array of features that offer a low-cost solution to increase system performance. The receiver provides an RF output of +28 dBmV allowing multiple RF splits without the use of an external RF amplifier. The 2808 is equipped with a manual gain control that allows the user to adjust the RF output level for optimum performance. Additionally, the receiver’s ability to operate over a wide optical input range of -8 to +4.5 dBm allows for a variety of system designs without degrading performance. The 2808 can transport up to 79 CATV channels using the entire high-frequency bandwidth, or alternatively, it can transport up to 79 channels of standard analog CATV signals while utilizing the remaining high-frequency bandwidth to transport 30 digital QAM channels. The receiver includes a universal AC power supply, freeing the user from a bulky wall-mount AC adapter. The streamline design of the 2808 offers the flexibility and performance demanded by today’s broadband professional. Applications CATV Broadband Features Wide Bandwidth of 40 to 860 MHz Accommodates Up to 79 Channels on All Models Provides Excellent Picture Quality with a CNR up to 54.5 dB, CSO of -63 dBc, and CTB of -66 dBc RF & Optical Characteristics Parameter Min Typ Max Units Optical Input Power -8.0 0.0 +4.5 dBm Operating Wavelength 1290 1310 1330 nm Operating Wavelength 1530 1550 1571 nm 40 - 860 MHz RF Output Up to +28 dBmV Allows a Greater Number of Drops or Splits Bandwidth Output RF Impedance - 75 - Ohms Wide Optical Input Range of -8 dBm to +4.5 dBm Permits the Use of a Lower Power Transmitter, Reducing System Cost RF Output Level - - +28 dBmV RF Output Return Loss - 16 - dB Back Reflection Tolerance - - -50 dB Built-in, Universal AC Power Supply Frees System User from Bulky WallMount AC Adapters Required Fiber Bandwidth 2,000 - - MHz Composite Second Order (CSO) - -63 - dBc Composite Triple Beat (CTB) - -66 - dBc Carrier-to-Noise Ratio 58 dB System performance specifications indicated for use with 9/125 µm singlemode fiber.
