ViaLite launches new rail-mounted RF module concept
ViaLite has launched a new rail-mounting concept for its ViaLiteHD Blue OEM compact radio-frequency modules, allowing users to make more efficient use of space inside equipment racks.
‘We have introduced the DIN Rail mount option in response to customer demand,’ Richard Jacklin, ViaLite’s director of sales, said.
‘It makes a logical addition to our range of enclosure options.’
ViaLite’s Blue OEM is a compact RF over fibre module that is available for ViaLiteHD RF bands up to 4.2 GHz in either a transmitter or receiver format, and can be used as a standalone link or integrated into larger systems.
Its systems are used for applications such as satellite communications, telemetry and maritime use, and customers include Intelsat, Eutelsat, Telesat, Broadcast Wireless, Vislink Communications, Videosys, Canam, Airbus and Motorola.
The DIN Rail concept is widely used in the industry and can save installation time as devices can simply ‘snap’ onto the metal rail.
Equipment racks can therefore be quickly assembled in linear configurations that provide high density and flexibility as well as savings in design time
