40 MHz-3GHz RF 1x8 and 1x16 Active Splitter

Product ManualManual
  • VistaLINK® enabled

The 7702DA8A-RF, 7702DA16-RF, 7703DA8A-RF & 7703DA16-RF 1x8 and 1x16 Active Splitters provide amplification and distribution of RF signals from 40MHz to 3GHz. They handle any RF input modulation format and provide 8 or 16 isolated outputs for further signal distribution. Typical applications include amplification and distribution of 950MHz-2150MHz L-Band and 70MHz-140MHz IF signals.

Monitoring of RF input power, card status and control of gain/attenuation is provided remotely via VistaLINK® capability on the 7703 versions. Optional LNB power is available at the input connector on the 7703 versions.

The 7702DA8A-RF, 7702DA16-RF, 7703DA8A-RF & 7703DA16-RF occupy two card slots and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity, or a standalone enclosure which holds a single module.

Features
  • Low noise amplification and distribution of RF signals from 40MHz to 3GHz
  • Wideband frequency response for use with L-Band, 70/140MHz IF and off-air DTV signals
  • Wide dynamic range (-10 to -60dBm)
  • Output gain of -10dB to +20dB adjustable in ½dB steps on 7703 versions
  • AGC mode with adjustable target level on 7703 versions
  • Fixed gain of 0dB on 7702 versions
  • Protocol independent - handles all modulation formats
  • Input RF signal strength monitoring on 7703 versions
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame
  • Optional LNB power (@ +13 or +18V DC with built-in current limiting) and 22kHz tone for LO control on 7703 versions
  • 7703-LNB versions include LNB current monitoring with adjustable alarm thresholds for monitoring LNB health
  • Comprehensive signal and card status monitoring via four digit card edge display or remotely through SNMP and VistaLINK® on 7703 versions
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring via SNMP (using VistaLINK® PRO) when installed in 7800FR frame with a 7800FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller
