OBD 1910

10Gbit/s Ethernet to Fiber bidirectional Transceiver

Datasheet Quickreference


The OBD 1910 kit is a simple, easy to use, plug and play solution which can extend a 1Gbit/s or 10Gbit/s electrical Ethernet network up to 30km* over a single fiber link. Usually 2 fiber links are needed between locations (TX and RX) but the OBD 1910 uses WDM multiplexing to use a single bidirectional fiber link (singlemode fiber).

The kit includes 2 Modules and 2 power supplies, just make the network connections and connect the fiber and you are all set. No complex configurations or set ups needed. The modules will support 1Gbit/s and 10Gbit/s Ethernet networks with a maximum throughput of 20Gbit/s (full duplex) If your current network infrastructure is using multimode fiber in each location, then you are limited on connectivity distance. If you need to extend this multimode network over a long distance to another location, then we have the OBD 1910 MM version of the kit, which will convert the dual multimode RX and TX connections into a single bidirectional link using  singlemode fiber.

*Distance is an approximation. Actual distances achieved can be longer or shorter depending on the type of fiber cable and accumulated optical losses in the fiber link. Determine link losses and perform optical budget calculations to ensure correct operation.
