Flange Mounted Fixed RF Photonic Delay Line
The MP-5000-TRX-DL is a “Best in Class” integrated subsystem that leverages MPS’s field proven optical packaging methodologies, proprietary monitor and control software, and RF / Photonic integration techniques.
The MP-5000-TRX-DL provides time delay capability for Radio Frequency (RF) input signals from 100 MHz to 12.0 GHz , is packaged in a small form factor, self contained flange mount package. Front panel LEDs provide a visual indication of the DC and Optical Power alarm status. The RF input and RF output ports are both SMA-Female 50 Ohm connectors and are positioned on opposite ends of the front panel.
The MP-5000-TRX-DL input power requirements are +15VC and is supplied via a front panel DB-9 connector. The DB-9 connector also provides serial communcaitons and an open collector alarm pin. The MP-5000-TRX-DL compact form factor can provide up 12 micro second delays within 1% accuracy of the customer specifed fixed delay.
For advanced delay applications, refer to the Optical Photonic Delay Line (OPDL) product series which can be configured with multiple time delay segment value up to 500 us. The delay values of the segments can either be configured as discrete time delay values, or can be configured as a binary 2n series. The binary 2n series configuration provides the ability to select delay values over a broader range with smaller time increments. Delay values are visible on a front panel display and can be incremented through the use either a front panel key pad or remotely using an Ethernet based communications interface.
