Abstract

Disclosed is a safety-enclosed, electrically-isolated, photo-multiplier tube (PMT) optical-to-electrical video signal transducer with its own self-enclosed high-voltage power supply. It requires an unregulated 15 to 24 V DC input and provides a video output current into 91 (omega) at an optical-to-electrical transduction coefficient of 13 ma/mw at HeNe wavelength. Its bandwidth is DC to 100 mHz, and its equivalent noise (referred to input) is 10/-12/ W.
