The highly-flexible Draco vario Repeater family provides the extension of digital signals and cross-conversion between Cat X and fiber cables.

Extension and format conversion

Draco vario Repeater (Series 485)

The installation of repeaters at intervals within a signal path extends the distance the signal can be transmitted to further distance via Cat X and fiber cable. The Draco vario repeater also offers cross-conversion between Cat X and fiber cables. Signals available on a Cat X network may be converted to fiber for transmission and converted back to Cat X at the receiver (or vice-versa). High-quality signal processing and integral amplification ensure no signal degradation or transmission artifacts.

Both device options can be deployed between extenders and between extender and matrix. The devices support our Flex-Port technology. Cat X and fiber ports will automatically configure as input or output according to the connected devices. No additional configuration is required. Please note that the scope of delivery includes only a module (without chassis). Single- and dual-repeater module versions are available for installation in Draco vario frame chassis.
