LEN L4KGI-01 Inline 4K Video Isolator for 6G-SDI / 12G-SDI Full Signal and Ground Isolation
Protects your Operators and Equipment from shock damage during installation...Eliminates interference during operation!
The LEN galvanic isolators use broadband high-pass filters to provide isolation of DC currents between two pieces of equipment, whilst permitting the full bandwidth of the 4K SDI signal to pass, so avoiding problems of signal distortion and operator shocks caused by a voltage difference. This method far out-performs broadband transformers for SDI signals. Both the signal and the ground paths between equipment are isolated, there is no distortion of the signal.
Another problem with coaxial cable use, that is solved by the LEN 4K Isolator, is in applications such as Outside Broadcast, where large voltages can build up on the outer cable shield due to different ground potentials at each end of the cable run, producing a spark as the cable is connected to its destination connector. This is particularly a problem in drier parts of the world.
The LEN 4K SDI Video Galvanic Isolator is offered in two options. Option one is an in-line 'barrel', suitable for portable applications, and option two has a mounting flange at one end to facilitate rack-panel mounting, for applications such as tailboard feedthrough.
Our Engineers at LEN have called on their long experience working with ultra-high frequency filter design for the Military to produce a product that is compliant to the SMPTE 6G and 12G specifications and fully tested on high end Vector Network Analyzers. We understand what is needed to design good product at such very high frequencies.
Operation over coax at 4K / 12G has been awaiting the release of companion products to the LEN 4K Isolators, such as 12G rated BNC connectors and coaxial cable. These are now reaching the marketplace.
