About Van den Hul The Optocoupler MK2 Optical Cable
Competitively priced and exhibiting an excellent price-to-performance ratio, van den Hul The Optocoupler Mk II has been specially designed to get your digital signals form one end to the other unharmed.
The most important benefits of optical signal transmission are (1) Never any noise or interference caused by external electrical and/or magnetic signals and (2) Optical fibres are free from any deterioration. We sincerely believe that the Optocoupler MK II is one of the best optical fibre cables available that you can buy. What makes the Van den Hul Optocoupler Mk II special is the fact that both ends of the single fibre are shaped in the form of a convex (spherical) lens. This has many advantages.
The Optocoupler Mk II’s lens shaped input and output surfaces produce an extra focusing of the light beam. Light entering the cable at an angle is focused and therefore undergoes 50% less wall reflections per unit length inside the fiber (i.e. the light path is shorter). This not only reduces the loss of light intensity (attenuation) (even when the cable is being bent), but also the time difference of travel between the light rays traversing the fibre at various angles (so-called modal dispersion) is much reduced; A pulse of light traversing the optical fiber therefore undergoes less time-smear and this in effect reduces the amount of jitter distortion experienced at your D/A converter. The Optocoupler Mk II’s convex shaped fibre ends furthermore bring about a better controlled fiber top surface contacting the optical transmitter and receiver-end. In this way optical insertion losses are reduced to a minimum. When it comes to speed, van den Hul guarantee a minimum transfer capacity of 250 Megabit/second.
All in all the Van den Hul The Optocoupler Mk II’s forms a perfect high bandwidth, low-loss and low jitter optical connection, able to serve you with a very high sound and/or picture resolution at an unsurpassed definition. The colour of the cable jacket is mother-of-pearl and the connectors are white with a red ring including “Van den Hul” printing.
Important Note: Handle The OPTOCOUPLER with extreme care; Do NOT push hard when inserting its plugs into your audio equipment. This may result in a damaged lens. If inserting the connector goes a little stiff, apply a TINY amount of lubricant (for instance our “The SOLUTION”) and make sure NOT to wet the lens with it. When cleaning the lens be very careful and use soft optical cloth only. Both ends of the optical fibre are protected by removable caps. To protect the sensitive optical end-surfaces it is advised to re-apply these caps during storage and transport.
