Base Unit

optical transmission equipment

This optical transmission device also supports QDCAM. This base unit ME-BXC-BU100/100T is used with the camsight unit ME-BXC-CU100/100T to transmit signals via an optical camera cable. By using it in combination with QDCAM, it is possible to perform transmission that eliminates imaging timing deviations due to differences in cable length. It can also be used as a general-purpose optical transmission device.
