ViaLite‘s RF over fiber Blue2 Link is a dual-solution OEM which can be setup as 2x transmitters, 2x receivers or a transceiver, as required. The link is available in all ViaLite frequency bands from 2 kHz-4.2 GHz, including ViaLite‘s extended L-Band HTS.
The Blue2 was developed further to customer demand and can be used as a replacement for the discontinued AnaCom Transceiver or as a plugin replacement for the Optical Zonu Transceiver.

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).
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.
