Multiplex XFP optical transceivers withstand industrial temperatures

Multiplex Inc. has introduced CWDM and DWDM XFP optical transceiver modules for industrial temperature applications. The XFP transceivers operate within a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C with wavelength stability to +/-12.5 GHz for 100-GHz systems.

Multiplex Inc. has introduced CWDM and DWDM XFP optical transceiver modules for industrial temperature applications. The XFP transceivers operate within a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C with wavelength stability to +/-12.5 GHz for 100-GHz systems.

The XFP optical modules, which comply with version 4.5 of the XFP MSA as well as RoHS specifications, are designed to consume less than 3.5 W. They will operate from 9.95 to 11.1 Gbps for SONET/SDH, 10-Gigabit Ethernet, 10-Gigabit Fibre Channel, and G.707 OTN applications.

"The Extended Temperature XFP supplements Multiplex's growing transponder and transceiver portfolio which includes SFP, XFP, and 300-pin MSA optical modules. Providing a full complement of DWDM and CWDM interfaces will enable our customers to optimize network designs for the appropriate price/performance point for any given application through our commitment to innovate and bring new viable solutions to the market," said Mike Robertson, sales director at Multiplex.

The industrial temperature DWDM and CWDM XFP optical transceiver modules are now available in quantity.
