The 2307LR is a fiber optic receiver in a revolutionary form factor. With the same diameter as a BNC connector, and overall length of 3.3″ (85mm), the 2307LR is the smallest RF optical receiver in the industry. It accepts an optical LC connector input on one end, and provides an electrical output on the other. The 2307LR attaches to the input of a device without any intermediate cabling required. This essentially offers direct optical input to the connected piece of equipment, without incurring the cost and rack space associated with using conventional optical receivers. The primary application is in providing direct optical inputs to XRF series routers, without requiring external fiber receiver cards.
