Riedel FBI – Fibre Interface Adapter
The FBI converts an Artist panel port from CAT5 to fibre in bidirectional way providing long distance operation of Artist control panels. As the unit offers both connectors, for the matrix and for the panel, it can be inserted on either side. The interface may also be used for the bidirectional transmission of an AES3 signal. Distances up to 2000 m (6,600 ft) can be realised using duplex multimode fibre.
