BBG-MB – Mounting bracket
The BBG-MB Mounting Bracket provides rigid, secure mounting of the unit. Heavy-gauge steel construction with a reinforced mounting flange and several mounting holes provides clean, physically secure mounting for even the most demanding mobile applications.
- Full support of 5Mbps thru 3Gbps transport conversions, with seamless auto-mode EQ/ reclocking. No switches to set for different payloads.
- Compatible with SMPTE 424M, 292M, 259M, 310M, M2S, DVB-ASI, and MADI audio
- Input lock status indicator. Optical Tx power meter field allows optical Tx confidence assessment.
- Error-free pathological support. Full compatibility with other BlueBox™ Coax/Fiber units.
- Compact size and low weight design easily affixes directly to camera or host device chassis. Optional BBG-MB mounting bracket provides rigid, secure mounting to mounting surfaces.
- SFP-based EO converter provides state-of-the-art fiber performance, power consumption, and compactness.
- Available with ST, LC, or FC fiber termination
- Auxiliary reclocked coax BNC input copy output
- Powers directly from host equipment USB or standard corded power adapter. USB power and corded adapter can be simultaneously used to provide redundant power sourcing.
The Blue Box BBG-EO-MK2 Coax-to-Fiber converter unit is a new part of the BlueBox™ group of compact, rugged, and portable converter boxes.
Super-easy to use, Blue Box BBG-EO-MK2 supports SMPTE 424M, 292M, and 259M as well as ASI and MADI audio.
Auto-mode EQ/reclocking automatically sets to the signal type being received while allowing unrecognized formats to be safely passed without reclocking (auto-reclock can also be manually disabled). Its wide operating range (from 5Mbps to 3Gbps) flexibly supports most professional digital serial communications.
Fully error-free pathological pattern operation is fully compatible with other professional fiber video interfaces. An SFP-based EO converter provides state-of-the-art fiber performance, power consumption, and compactness.
BBG-EO-MK2 receives its operating power via a USB connection or using an AC adapter connection. These power sources can be simultaneously used to provide redundant power sourcing.
