to convert 3G/HD/SD-SDI with or without embedded audio transmitted over a single fiber
optic core to DVI. The FiberLink 3355 Series is compatible with single mode or multimode
fiber. The 3355 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 3355
Series also provides immunity to video pathological signals over the entire link budget and
operating temperature range.

Installation Instructions
FiberLink 3355 Series
Installation Instructions
The FiberLink 3355 Series of fiber optic transmission systems are ready for
immediate use and do not require any special tools. However, an Optical Power Meter,
such as the FiberLink 6615, can be useful in determining optical loss budgets during your
systems design and maintenance.
FiberLink 3355 will operate with the FiberLink 3350, FiberLink 3360, FiberLink 3370,
FiberLink 3380, Scan Do® HD, FiberLink Matrix and SMPTE 297-2006 compliant optical
tranmission units. The following procedure presumes you have followed the instructions for
installing your optical transmitter unit.
The following instructions describe the typical installation procedure:
1) Connect the fiber optic cable to the optical input of the receiver unit.
2) Connect the video output cable (DVI) to the video output DVI connector on
the receiver unit.
3) Optionally connect any audio cables and using the channel pair rotary selector,
choose your desired audio output channel. Audio is also embedded on the
DVI cable.
4) Terminate any unused BNC output connector at 75 Ohms.
5) Connect the Universal Power Supply to the transmitter and receiver units.
Please refer to figure 1.
6) When power is applied, the green POWER LED should illuminate, indicating the
presence of operating power. The 3G/HD/SD RATE LED will give an indication as
described in the Indicator LED’s and Alarm Circuitry section of this manual.
7) The system should now be operational.

The transmitting element in the FiberLink 3350, 3360, 3370
and 3380 transmitter units 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!

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 3355 Transmitter, no optical power will be present on the
3355 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 LEDs should provide the first clue as to the origin of any operational
failure. If these are off, it usually means that the fiber is broken or has too much attenuation.
Next, be certain that the input and output signal connections are correct.
An optical power meter, such as the FiberLink 6615, a visible light source, such as the
FiberLink 6610, and a Three Wavelength Light Source, such as the FiberLink 6620, 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 3355 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 Three Wavelength Light Source, such as the FiberLink 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.
