Fiber Interface Adapter
The FBI bidirectionally converts an Artist panel port from CAT5 to fiber allowing Artist key panels to be operated over long distances. Since the unit offers connectors both for the matrix and for the panel, it can be inserted on either the panel or matrix side of the link. The interface may also be used for the bidirectional transmission of an AES3 signal. Distances up to 2,000 m (6,600 ft) can be achieved using duplex multi-mode fiber.
