Description

Active ADAT/Toslink Splitter & Repeater

The ADS-8 ADAT/Toslink Splitter allows you to connect any signal source to two sinks. The active design overcomes the limitations of traditional passive splitters: They essentially half the amount of light on each output, causing problems because the attenuated signal is too weak for proper transmission of high-speed data.

In contrast, the ADS-8 receives the optical signal, converts it to an electrical signal which can be split without loss to the output transmitters, which operate on each port with full power. As a side effect, it acts as signal repeater which doubles the reach of each connection.

Features

  • Reliable, lossless, true bit-transparent splitting of any signal
  • Doubles maximum transmission distance of an optical connection from normally 5-10m to 10-20m, depending on the equipment used
  • Near-zero latency (< 1µs)
  • All channels present on the input are available on both outputs
  • Compatible with all audio formats which can be sent over TOSLINK
  • Made in Switzerland
