AIMA-FT3S

About the Product

The 1310 nm Forward Transmitter Module - Standard series (FT3S) is designed to plug into PBN’s latest generation Advanced Intelligent Multiservices
Access platform - the AIMA3000.

PBN AIMA3000 FT3S series advanced forward transmitter is available in single and dual port configurations. It is designed for multi-services operators (MSOs) to increase network capacity to satisfy an ever-growing subscriber demand for more bandwidth. The FT3S Multi Quantum Well (MQW) Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser transmitter module allows for full-spectrum analog/digital broadcast and narrowcast channels over the entire 1218 MHz space, which provides utmost flexibility for MSOs during the all-digital transition.

The laser transmitter module is available in optical power levels from 2 dBm to 15 dBm (1.6 mW to 31 mW). The module offers a superior frequency response, as well as an extremely low distortion profile and low noise characteristics. The FT3S incorporates specialized circuitry to deliver the best possible CTB and CSO performance of up to 1218 MHz. It employs the latest in broadband linear amplifier technology. In addition, it has a cutting-edge optoelectronic design for the delivery of high-quality transmissions, in both analog and digital formats, over passive fiber-optical networks.

Notes:

(1) X1X2 is for CWDM or OBand WDM configurations only. Please omit X1X2 when making an order
for non CWDM/OBand application scenarios, and the default optical wavelength is 1310nm±10nm.
For example, A-FT3S-S-02-F-1G refers to an order for a 1310 nm Forward Transmitter, one optical
port, output power 2dBm, FC/APC connector, bandwidth 45-1218 MHz.

(2) X2 is only used in dual transmitters versions and in this case X1 is the first channel, X2 is the second channel.

• Dual version, X1 is first channel and X2 is second channel.
Examples:

Single X1 29
Dual X1X2 2931, 2929

(3) 1G version is only for single port models.
