REAC Optical Converter


The S-OPT is a REAC optical converter that converts Roland Digital Snake System REAC signals to and from optical signals for long distance digital audio transmission. By using the REAC optical converter and optical cables (sold separately), the REAC transmission distance can be extended to a maximum of 2 kilometers.

The S-OPT optical connectors are Neutrik® OpticalCon® connectors and support Mobile Fiber Cable from Neutrik®. This optical interface provides for transmitting audio over long distances via optical while still taking advantage of the RSS Digital Snake System’s mobility. OpticalCon® provides a Dual LC optical connector (standard LC-Duplex connector, IEC 61754-20) enabling the use of less expensive optical cables for with the Roland Digital Snake System.Two S-OPT units can be connected using the proprietary POWER LINK cable (ARC-15, sold separately) so that redundant power can be supplied from one unit to the other. If power to a single unit is interrupted due to some situation or is damaged, both units will still continue to operate.
