RF Design - RLS2716L L Band 16 way splitter with redundant amplifier

Call for Price

The RLS2716L is a 1:16 L-Band splitter with front-side inserted 1:1 redundant operating line-amplifier modules built into a compact 1RU/19″ rack-mount chassis. The unit features 1:16 L-Band splitting while the two redundant operating amplifier modules allow variable gain adjustment at each of the 16 outputs so to reach best RF performance within the network. The redundancy switching between these two amplifier modules is done nearly interruption free within a switchover time of less than 5ms. Besides the variable gain adjustment (MGC/AGC) and 1:16 splitting the unit also features slope-equalization, 10MHz external reference, RF power monitoring, LNB-powering as well as 1:1 redundant power-supply (hot-swappable). The RLS2516L features a flexible and compact RF-distribution solution which is perfectly suited for applications in Teleports, Satellite Earth-Stations, as well as Broadcast- and Broadband facilities wherever accurate RF power, highest stability and availability is necessary. The unit has a front-side LC-Display/keypads for user-friendly local configuration while front-side status LED´s indicating amplifier and power-supply status. Remote control and configuration can be done via its rear-side Ethernet-Interface (WEB-GUI, SNMP). The RLS2516L is available with 50Ohm SMA(f) or 75Ohm F(f) connectors (see order-information).
