FT-AD End-of-Life

Add / Drop Module

The FT-ADD/DROP series supports video, data, audio and contact closure signals to be added to or dropped off over eight different locations along one single-mode fiber. It provides a flexible solution for the transmission of complicated signals in limited fiber situations.


General -

  • FC or ST optical connector
  • 9 different common CWDM wavelengths available
  • Inserts one wavelength at different location and tap off another wavelength in reverse direction for return data over a single fiber
  • Video, data, audio and contact closure signals can be added to or dropped off over eight different locations along a single fiber
  • Standalone or chassis mount structure, compatible with FT-C18
  • Passive Optical module, no power required

Warranty -

  • Comprehensive Lifetime Warranty
