Moog Protokraft Kestrel series 4xSMPTE 424M (3G-SDI) or 1xDVI fiber optic link extenders consist of optoelectronic conversion functions integrated into a wall or floor mounted MIL-DTL-38999 connector assembly. The optical transmitters are high output 850 nm VCSELs. The optical receivers consist of GaAs PIN and preamplifier assemblies and limiting postamplifiers. The electrical connector interface to the Kestrel is a D38999 / 19-18 quadrax connector enabling interconnection to a standard SMPTE 424M or DVI connector interface with a quadrax cable adaptor. The optical connector interface is an EN4531 / 3645 compliant vibration, hard fiber interface.
Kestrel series fiber optic link extenders use vibration isolated, environmentally hardened components that are designed for use in harsh environment applications.
