SignalOn 5RU, F & BNC Amplifiers & RF Switches

SignalOn active amplifiers include both forward and return path amplifiers. SignalOn hot-swappable forward path amplifiers are available with GaAs technology and feature non-service-affecting gain and slope controls. Operation is from 50-1002 MHz, or 50-1218 MHz. In addition, 20 dB or 30 dB gain options are offered. The 5-205 MHz return path amplifier offers a standard 22 dB gain, low distortion and noise, and 2 test points.

The SignalOn RF Switch module accommodates redundant amplification. The primary function of this module is to monitor the RF signal of the operating primary input, and switch to the backup input if the primary path rises or falls below the pre-set customer selected threshold. Switch status, failure LEDs, and RF level bar graphs are mounted on the front panel. Switching threshold: /- 3 dB or /- 6 dB, and alarm contact closures are located on the rear of the module.
