The PCT-VC-5UN RF Bypass amplifier is designed to support critical applications such as telephony that require high reliability networks to provide uninterrupted service at all times. The PCT-VC-5UN amps have a 2 way splitter incorporated on the RF input prior to the diplex filter which provides an additional port on the housing for the cable modem or eMTA connection that bypasses the amplifier circuit. This feature enables critical applications to not be affected by power outages or amplifier failures.
PCT amplifiers feature a lightweight powder coated and weather sealed housing for superior corrosion protection. PCT amplifiers have precision machined F ports which conforms to SCTE standards. They also have beryllium copper seizure mechanisms to provide optimal distribution and amplification of your RF signals.
