RMDA1000-42P Rack Mount Distribution Amplifier


The RMDA-1000-42P are completely self-contained broadband distribution amplifiers, designed specifically for signal distribution systems requiring the low distortion characteristics only available using hybrid CATV integrated circuits. With a forward bandwidth of 54 to 1000 MHz and a gain of 42 dB, the amplifier is useful in either systems which use a “cable drop” as a signal source or as the launch amplifier in a headend.

The RMDA-1000-42P features power doubling hybrid amplifier technology for high RF output levels and low distortion. The amplifier provides flat operating gain which can be reduced with a variable attenuator. Gain and Slope controls are located on the front panel for fast set-up and adjustment. The unit is housed in a 1RU aluminum chassis, providing exceptional heat dissipation and allowing operation at high ambient temperatures with no degradation of performance or reliability. Two -30 dB test points at the input and output are provided to permit testing without interruption of service.
