Link Options

The new Blue2 Link s a small dustproof module available in all ViaLiteHD RF bands.  It can be either a dual transmitter, dual receiver or a transceiver.

The link is available with two optical inputs/outputs or single optical input/output if the integral WDM module option is selected.

The 15 way D-type connector is used for serial data transmission (RS232, RS485 & TTL), Tx or Rx Alarms, I²C set up using the ViaLiteHD Programming Kit (HRxHD-DEV103) and for connecting an external power supply (optional HPS-CS-4).


Applications include:

  • Martitme
  • Satcom
  • Broadcast
  • GPS

The Blue2’s compact design means it can be used in existing customer equipment or easily fitted in smaller spaces, such as ship radomes/below-deck control rooms where space can be restricted.  In addition to maritime, the Blue2 Link is suitable for use in the Broadcast, GPS or regular Satcom markets.
