FRACARRO OPT-TX DT Fibre Optic Transmitter

The Fracarro Home Fibre range is a highly innovative solution, designed for its simplicity of installation from the head end to the wall outlet.

The system uses a conventional LNB and dish assembly requiring no special optical alignment tools. It is capable of carrying all satellite and terrestrial signals through a single 9/125 glass fibre. Additional transmitters can be cascaded using a standard 5 core co-axial back bone giving greater flexibility in system design to supply a large number of outlets.


  • Enables the transfer of signals without loss or degradation over long distances (attenuation 0.3dB/Km)
  • Immune to electrical and environmental interferences and is therefore ideally suited for those particularly difficult installations


  • Enables complex systems with a high number of outlets to be designed easily (1 TX for 128 outlets)
  • Compatible integration with existing coax systems
  • Cascadeable distribution typical of multiswitch topography (tree & branch or star wired)


  • Simplifies cabling due to the extremely small cables and connectors (only 3mm)
  • Use of traditional dish and LNB array
  • No specialised optical alignment equipment required

The 5mW optical transmitter works in the second optical transmission window (1310nm) and manages the SAT signals – from a traditional LNB and dish combination – including full bandwidth DTT.

Equipped with automatic gain control (AGC), up to a maximum of 7 transmitters can easily be connected together using the typical cascade distribution infrastructure, serving up to 896 wall outlets per trunk.
