Underground taps are designed for use in CATV area networks, primarily in underground installations. Depending on the type, up to 4 branch cables are connected to a CATV signal line. Technetix UTG taps are available as 1, 2, 3 or 4-way taps with standard attenuations of 10 dB, 15 dB or 20 dB. The taps feature the new optimised frequency response of
5 – 1218 MHz for up- and downstream.

PCB and component connections are permanently installed in a plastic housing. The thermally bonded housing ensures the necessary seal against moisture from the soil and a high degree of stability between cable and connector housing. The cable connectors are made of flexible coaxial cable with fixed RF connectors, therefore 4/20 contact sleeves are used. In addition the modified design of these new Technetix taps has a very high screening factor.

The new improved design of the Technetix tap is based on the currently applicable specification Nr. 59753047 and KDG 1 TS 53. With the new transmission range of up to 1218 MHz, as well the optimised frequency response, they also meet the demands of Germany’s most important cable operators, providing modern and future-proof technology.
