Product Description

Optical Voice Link Kit

Assembled, ready-to-use, battery-powered device for demonstrating audio communications with fiber optics! 

Fiber Optics Communication Project

The Duplex Optical Voice Link is a project oriented introduction to fiber optic communications. Multiple applications can utilize this kit. Technicians might use it to provide an isolated voice link in a construction crane. Salvage divers could use its communication potential as part of their diving equipment. An instructor may use it as a short, hands-on fiber optic curriculum or as a module to demonstrate before the class. A student may use the kit for a science project while a hobbyist may use it to amaze their friends.

Important experience and technical knowledge will be gained while you are working with the electronic microphone, analog fiber transmitter and receiver, and the fiber optic cable interfaces.

  1. Poor instructions

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Apr 2018

    The kit comes with a detailed instruction booklet for putting the entire thing together from scratch however it is already mostly put together. It took me quite a while to figure out where to start in the instruction book because part of the kit still needed assembly, but many steps were already completed. I kept looking for a heading that said something like "if your kit is already mostly assembled start here" but there was no such heading. There are very few pictures to help with the explanations of the equipment/construction. When I finally figured out which step I needed to be on to finish construction of the device, the set-up was simple. However, it does not function properly. I can get the device to make a clicking noise across the fiberoptic wire, but there is no voice transfer. After about an hour of messing with it I gave up to try again later. Not impressed with the directions or the functionality of it. Even if I can get it to work I don't think the effect will be as amazing as I was hoping for in the classroom. Not worth the cost.
