Plug and Play design ensures adjustment-free installation and operation, and optical adjustments are never required. LED indicators are provided to instantly monitor the system operating status. A typical installation utilizes a transmitter unit at the camera end of the link, connected via a single fiber optic cable, to a receiver unit at the monitoring end of the link. These products are currently in use in some states for monitoring traffic. All the advantages of fiber apply – protection from lightning strikes, greater distances supported for less cost, immunity to EMI & RFI, increased bandwidth to handle more data, voice and video transmission.

As with all VERSITRON products, these video converters carry a lifetime warranty. Please give us a call (1-800-537-2296) or open a chat with any questions. We would be delighted to speak with you!
