VBS 2000

Optical AM video transmitters and receivers


The VBS 2000 series offers a complete range of low-cost fiber-optic AM video transmitters and receivers. Built-in automatic gain control (AGC) allows plug-and-play installation and maintenance-free operation. VBS 2000 transmitters and receivers are available for multimode applications.
The very compact VBS 2020 TX matchbox transmitter has a wide operating temperature range and is therefore suitable for use close to cameras or even inside outdoor camera housings.
Regular VBS transmitters and receivers are available with stand-alone or rack-mount housings. The rack-mount versions are designed to be slotted into MC 10 or MC 11 power supply cabinets. Stand-alone versions (/SA) can be mounted on any flat surface.
The space-saving VBS 2020 TX-3 transmitters and RX-3 receivers can provide up to 33 video transmission links, using only a single MC10 or MC11 power supply cabinet at each location.
The compact VBS 2020 matchbox transmitter and all other VBS stand-alone transmitters and receivers are powered by a PSA-UN12DC power adapter or, for extreme environmental conditions, a PSR-12 DC power supply unit.
VBS 2000 receivers are compatible with the miniature Pico transmitters.
