4 to 16 Channels of unidirectional or bi-directional audio over fiber


Model LP6100E The 6100E Series provides simultaneous transmission of multiple channels of digitized audio over one or one pair of fiber. The standard 6100E system comes with 4-, 8-, and 16-channel versions and transmits these audio channels in one direction. Models up to 32-channels are also available as a custom version. Many versions of optical transmitter and receiver combinations are available to address different distance requirements. The 6100E features a digital fiber optic transmission technology, capable of providing crisp audio, little or no maintenance, high functional reliability, and low operating costs. The quality of BCI's audio transmission digital design is much superior to the analog transmission counterparts (based on amplitude or frequency modulation)available from other manufacturers. In addition, no user adjustments are required in the 6100E system, enabling quick setup and trouble-free operation. The 6100E is available with two packaging options: a rugged, standalone, and compact unit, or a plug-in card for a card cage system. Panel connectors are provided for audio (terminal block) and fiber connection (FC-type for singlemode fiber or ST-type for multimode fiber). They are also easily monitored by separate LED indicators for power, optical link, and channel activity. Due to its digital transmission design, the 6100E is capable of addressing a variety of non-standard configurations. Contact us to discuss your custom, OEM/private brand and high volume requirements.
