BIGGLESWADE, U.K.—AMG Systems has introduced a new fiber optic video, data and contact closure line of products.
AMG states the application for these new products include the support a new generation of multi-megapixel coaxial cameras with the need for high security. The AMG Fiber optic transmission line is not IP-based, which its says avoids any potential security risk to the network, and in addition, the company says there is no latency due to not needing any type of encoding, which Ethernet systems require. AMG boasts the introduction of this new product line is the first advancement in many years and will set the standard for years. The AMG line consists of fiber optic video, video, and data, serial data, and contact closure products for signal transport using the benefits of connectivity format.
“Although legacy fiber optic transmission systems are being replaced by IP, there are thousands of fiber optic transmission networks still in use,” says Steve Clarke, managing director, AMG. “With the push toward, IP, no real effort has been directed toward modernizing traditional fiber optic video and data products. This next generation of AMG fiber optic products is a major step forward. Completely new, with modern available components, now made in our ISO9001 certified facility, AMG fiber optic products are a great combination of quality, availability and still extremely cost-effective compared to what’s out there.”

“The AMG fiber optic transmission product line continues our quality standard. Our engineering team looked at what was currently available, identified weaknesses, and engineered our fiber optic product line to overcome those weaknesses. One of the big issues facing the competition is parts availability,” comments Tom Exley, technical director, AMG. “Competing fiber optic products were developed 15-20 years ago, sourcing 20-year-old components is a challenge, and that’s likely the reason for extended production delays and price increases. The AMG line is all new. New designs, and new components and now manufactured in an ISO9001-certified facility. And, most importantly, they are available when you need them. We believe in the quality and stand behind them with lifetime support.”
