RZ Optical Transmitters

RZT Front panel cropped with contrast and drop B copy.jpg (338056 bytes)

PriTel’s RZT Series of RZ Optical Transmitters are easy-to-
use, cost-effective sources of patterned optical data at
10 Gbps and higher.  Model RZT-10 combines in one unit
the optical clock function of PriTel's UOC fiber laser with
an embedded data modulator to convert external 10-Gbps
patterned RF data into 10-Gbps patterned optical data.
Embedding the data modulator enhances stability of the
patterned optical data and reduces the part count.

Model RZT-40 adds PriTel's Optical Clock Multiplier Model OCM-4 to
the RZT-10 to convert the 10-Gbps RZ optical output into 40-Gbps
RZ optical data.  Model RZT-160 adds PriTel's Model OCM-16 and
Model PMFA-15 amplifier to the RZT-10 to achieve 160-Gbps RZ
optical data.

RZT Optical Transmitters can be operated in a clock mode by removing
the RF data stream.  Normal operation of the RZT Series requires an
external RF synthesizer or clock, supplied by the customer.
