Welcome | Features | Package Contents
Welcome
Thank you for purchasing Artel Video Systems’ FiberLink SDI Beamer Series. The SDI
Beamer Series is used to transmit 3G/HD/SD-SDI with or without embedded audio and data
over a single fiber optic core. The FiberLink SDI Beamer Series is compatible with single
mode or multimode fiber. The SDI Beamer is also compliant with SMPTE 297-2006 for seamless interoperability with other SMPTE 297-2006 devices. The system delivers noise-free
transmission that retains all of the signals’ initial parameters, regardless of fiber optic cable
attenuation. The SDI Beamer Series also provides immunity to video pathological signals
over the entire link budget and operating temperature range.
It’s small footprint and internal battery power makes it ideal for in-the-field broadcasting.

Installation Instructions
FiberLink SDI Beamer™
Installation Instructions
The FiberLink SDI Beamer Series of fiber optic transmission systems are ready for
immediate use and do not require any special tools or equipment. However, an Optical
Power Meter, such as the FiberLink 6650, can be useful in determining optical loss budgets
during your systems design and maintenance.
The following instructions describe the typical installation procedure:
1) Connect the video source to the video input BNC connector on the transmitter unit.
2) Connect the video output cable to the video output BNC connector on
the receiver unit.
3) Connect the fiber optic cable to the transmitter and receiver units.
4)
Optionally connect the Universal Power Supply (PDPS-4) to the transmitter and
receiver units ensuring to fully tighten the power connector.
SDI Beamer can also be powered independently via the internal 9V Battery.
See page 8 for more information about powering SDI Beamer.
5) Switch the transmitter and receiver units on. The green BATTERY LED should
illuminate steady or blink, indicating the presence of operating power.
See page 9 for more information about the BATTERY LED.
6) The system should now be operational.
The transmitting element in the FiberLink SDI Beamer
transmitter unit contains a solid state Laser Diode located
in the optical connector. This device emits invisible infrared
electromagnetic radiation which can be harmful to human
eyes. The radiation from this optical connector, if viewed at
close range with no fiber optic cable connected to the
optical connector, may be sufficient intensity to cause
instantaneous damage to the retina of the eye. Direct
viewing of this radiation should be avoided at all times!

Powering SDI Beamer
FiberLink SDI Beamer™
Powering SDI Beamer
The FiberLink SDI Beamer Series will accept power from one of two sources: an internal 9V
battery, or an external DC power source (PDPS-4).
Power Configuration
Source
Function
Battery Only
The unit can be power for up to 5 hours using
the internal 9V battery. Use the On/Off switch to
turn battery power on or off.
Battery life may vary depending upon battery
type chosen, operating environment and other
factors.
It is recommended that you always test the
internal 9V battery before using SDI Beamer.
External DC Power
PDPS-4
SDI Beamer is designed for robust, broadcast
use and may be powered indefinitely when
using an external DC power source such as the
PDPS-4. SDI Beamer will be immediately available
for use when power is applied to the DC input
regardless of the Battery Power switch position.

Battery Power Switch | LED Indicator
Battery Power Switch
The FiberLink SDI Beamer Series has one “On/Off” switch that controls the application of
battery power. The switch does not control external DC power.
Battery Power Switch
PositionResult
Off
The battery will not be used to power SDI Beamer.
If external DC power is applied, SDI Beamer will function but the
battery will not be used as a fail-safe backup power source.
On
The battery may be used to power SDI Beamer:
If external DC power is applied, SDI Beamer will prioritize power
from the external DC source and only use battery power should
the external DC power be interrupted.
If no external DC power is applied, SDI Beamer will operate
using the internal battery.
Always turn the Battery Power Switch to the “Off” position when
SDI Beamer is not in use to prevent inadvertent battery drain.
Indicator LED
The FiberLink SDI Beamer Series has one LED, Battery Status, to indicate the status of the
units power.

Operating Pointers | Troubleshooting
Operating Pointers
Remember to check attenuation of the fiber optic cable. The system will only operate
properly if these specifications fall within the range of the system’s loss budget.
Note: If no signal is applied to the SDI Beamer Transmitter, no optical power will be present
on the SDI Beamer Transmitter’s output.
Troubleshooting
Multimode fiber optic cable contains an optical fiber with a light carrying “core” that is only
.0025 inches (62.5 microns) in diameter. Single mode fiber optic cable has an even smaller
“core,” only .00032 to .0004 inches (8-10 microns). This is smaller than a human hair!
Therefore, any minute particles of dirt or dust can easily block the fiber from accepting or
radiating light. To prevent this from happening, always use the provided dust caps when
ever optical connectors are exposed to air. It is also a good idea to gently clean the tip of an
optical connector with a lint-free cloth moistened with alcohol whenever dust is suspected.
The status of the power LED should provide the first clue as to the origin of any operational
failure. If this LED is off, check the battery and/or external power connections. Next, be
certain that the input and output signal connections are correct.
An optical power meter, such as the FiberLink 6650, a visible light source, such as the
FiberLink 6656, and a dual wavelength light source, such as the FiberLink 6652 or
6654, can greatly assist and expedite troubleshooting of fiber optic transmission systems
and are recommended tools all installers should have available.
Finally, although multimode and single mode devices may look the same, they will not
operate properly together. Using the wrong device or fiber can easily add more attenuation
than specified, resulting in poor overall performance. It should be noted that some of our
fiber optic products support both single mode and multimode fiber in the same unit.
If, after reviewing the above possibilities, the system is still not operating, please contact
the Customer Service Department for further assistance. If you suspect your problem is
caused by the optics or the fiber optic cable, and you have an optical power meter, please
take the appropriate measurements prior to contacting support.

Maintenance and Repairs
The FiberLink SDI Beamer Series has been manufactured using the latest semiconductor
devices and techniques that electronic technology has to offer. They have been designed
for long, reliable and trouble-free service and are not normally field repairable.
Should difficulty be encountered, Artel Video Systems maintains a complete
service facility to render accurate, timely and reliable service of all products.
The only maintenance that can be provided by the user is to ascertain that optical
connectors are free of dust or dirt that could interfere with light transmission and that
electrical connections are secure and accurate. Please see the Troubleshooting section of
this manual for additional information.
An optical power meter, such as the FiberLink 6650, a visible light source, such as the
FiberLink 6656, and a dua wavelength light source, such as the FiberLink 6652 or 6654, can
greatly assist and expedite troubleshooting of fiber optic transmission systems and are
recommended tools all installers should have available.
All other questions or comments should be directed to our Customer Service Department.
It should be noted that many “problems” can easily be solved by a simple telephone call.
If you suspect your problem is caused by the optics or the fiber optic cable, and you have
an optical power meter, please take the appropriate measurements prior to contacting
support.
