ETL Systems partner, Lumina BSA, recently installed broadband (50-2450MHz) over fibre links for use with wireless camera systems for the Australian Turf Club. The application used ETL’s StingRay RF over Fibre units, which are easily mountable on to a pole or wall. Models SRY-Tx-B2-403 transmitter and SRY-Rx-B2-404 receiver units are housed in an IP65 weatherproof enclosure, Model SRY-ODU203, providing fibre link ranges of up to 10km.
Five pairs of transmitter/receiver duos were mounted on the main area of the racecourse. This location provided the units with the perfect line of sight of the venues barrier stall camera to film the start of the races, as well as the presentation camera directly below.
The deployment of the ETL Systems StingRay RF over Fibre units by Lumina BSA, resulted in a vast improvement in video quality, with the venue recording much higher RF levels with less noise, resulting in very stable, high-quality coverage from the RF cameras.
