There is a new transmitter for 1 and 2 analog signals in the "medium speed range": U1/14-1M and U2/14-1M. These devices can be designed for the upper cutoff frequency in the range of 30 KHz up to 2 MHz. They have smaller housings than the previous type U-devices. The optoFlex transmitters for the optical transmission of flexray signals are now available in the automotive section.


For a better clarity we have reworked the product menu of the analog transmitters. These products are now sorted by the number of channels transmitted. Within a group, different resolutions and bandwidths can be found:
1 channel
, 2 channel, and 8 channel transmitters.


Again there is a new version of dAV-transmitters - dAV-RGB. With this device it is possible to transmit up to 2 audio channels and up to 6 video channels with a bandwidth of at least 15 MHz. Therefore, videosystems with RGB, h-sync, and v-sync can be tested for EMC very comfortably with only one device.
Another novelty is the 8-channel transmitter U8/12-1k, for analog signals up to 1,5 kHz bandwidth.
For slow digital signals we now have the D8-transmitter. The digital outputs include 0/5 V, open Collector, Relais, and LED-displays. In addition, the signals are available at a serial port (RS232).
The optoLAN-10/100 transceiver with integrated batteries can be used for the optical transmission of ethernet signals at 10 or 100 MBit/s resp.


A brandnew and handy test device for electrical and optical serial interfaces (RS232) is available from now on. It is possible to equip the "comSPECTOR" for measuring the attenuation of optical cables. Errors at interfaces and optical cables can be narrowed down fast and comfortably and therefore corrected more easily.


Have a look at our new section "test-stand electronics and test equipment". The first product in this category is the LVDS switch matrix LVDS-SM 20/1 with up to 20 inputs and one output. With this device, 20 LVDS sources can be operated with a test receiver successively, for example. The switching can be done manually or via remote control by a PC.
The new optoPSI5 transmitter is also available from this month on. The device is designed for the bidirectional, optical transmission of PSI5-bus-signals in EMC-tests of the automobile industry.


A further variation of the dAV transmitters is available. The system dAV-Hf serves the purpose of the digital optical transmission of audio- and video-signals. One of its features: The receiver has a Hf-output in order to be able to connect it to a TV tuner. Therefore, the devices with an antenna input can be supplied directly with a Hf-signal.


There is a new version of the optical LVDS-transmitters available. The version optoLVDS-4 is used for the transmission of four independent (single-channel) signals in one direction with transmission rates of up to 1.5 Gb/s. Alternatively, this system can be ordered with 1-3 channels or for the bidirectional transmission of up to four independent channels each.
The likewise new optoTTL-transmitter for digital signals up to approx. 100 kHz is now available. This system is able to transmit up to 16 channels at input voltages of 5V or 12V. The output voltage is 5V, the sampling rate 40MS/s for each channel.


External control panel AV-Rrc for the remote control of the camera functions via the multichannel AV-receiver AV-Rmr². The panel is provided with power by the remote-connector of the receiver.
External control panel AV-Rrc2 for the remote control of all matrix- and camera functions of the multichannel AV-receiver AV-Rmr². The panel is provided with power by the remote-connector of the receiver.


Our newest development is the handy analog system U1/12-20k whose transmitter can be connected directly to the input of an oscilloscope. With the help of three pins, the receiver is soldered on the device to be measured.


As an optional piece of accessory for the cameras of the AV-C-series we have an adjustable camera holder for an easy installation on the headrest of a vehicle. As an alternative, we can provide a "seatbox" which can simply be put on the car seat with the camera fixed on it - further manipulation is not necessary.
