12-way 1.4 GHz Tilted Multitap
Item code: 19011527
Model Number: TMT-1400-A
- Frequency range 1.4 GHz
- Graduated tap losses ranging from 7.7dB to 19.7dB
- Tilted outputs for cable drop loss compensation
- Brass connectors with tin nickel plating
- Microstrip coupling for high port to port isolation
The TMT-1400-A has been developed based on
microstrip technology. This type of multitap combines
flat frequency responses at the subscriber’s wall
outlet with equal return path attenuation at each port.
The typical frequency characteristic of the
TMT-1400-A, IE: the higher the frequency the lower
the tap loss, is the opposite of that of the coaxial
drop cable. Therefore this 1.4 GHz tilted multitap
compensates for the coaxial drop cable losses,
resulting in a very good flatness (in combination with
an untilted distribution amplifier). Due to the
innovative design of this product utilising microstrip
couplers there is no passive intermodulation.
The return path attenuation of the TMT-1400-A offers
equal values for all ports. This is very important as
conventional multitaps have different losses so return
path levels differ depending on tap value.
The TMT-1400-A has a cast aluminium housing with
a special passivation layer and high quality paint
coating to protect against corrosion. The backplate is
also made of cast aluminium and is sealed to protect
against moisture ingress.
The F connectors are made of brass – to prevent cold
flow – with a tin nickel plating to prevent CPD and are
spaced 22 mm apart for optimum usability.
The TMT-1400-A can be mounted with front or down
facing ports to give the most flexible installation.
