The TIN40-1200 is a new, one way fiber optic node for CATV, SMATV, FTTx, MDU or private business applications. The TIN40-1200 has a wide optical input range from 1200 to 1600 nm, making it ideal for either 1310 nm or 1550 nm systems. The fiber optic receiver has an AGC circuit to maintain a RF output over a -6 to +2 dB optical input level. The high RF output level of 40 dBmV eliminates the need for a separate RF amplifier for distribution. A 0-18 dB gain control makes system balancing easy without external pads. The GaAs E-pHEMT push pull hybrid pro- vides superior performance with low distortions. The node uses an external 12VDC power sup- ply (included) which can be connected directly or diplexed on the RF output cable for remote powering. The optical input is a SC/APC connnector and features a multicolor LED for input level reference.
