Fibre optic links

Montena manufactures a range of broadband optical links for analogue signal transmission up to 3.5 GHz.

The model MOL2000T with remote gain control is available in versions point-to-point and multilink with up to 10 channels per chassis. The model MOL3000 has fixed gain and is proposed in version point-to-point only.

In the point-to-point versions, both the transmitter and the receiver modules are battery-powered and are shielded against strong electromagnetic fields. In the multilink version, the transmitters are battery-powered and are shielded too, while the receiver modules are powered and controlled from the chassis.


  • Especially designed for operation in harsh electromagnetic environment.
  • Ultra-wide 80 Hz – 3.5 GHz bandwidth ensures an accurate transmission of fast rise time and long pulse duration signals.
  • Remote gain control and standby mode (MOL2000T) provide high flexibility when testing large and complex systems.
