    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.

    Features:

    • 4 output RF amplifier + 1 modem output
    • Unity Gain 0 dB per output
    • Bypass feature provides uninterrupted service at all times
    • Auto termination upon power outage
    • Lowest distortions performance available
    • IEEE 6 kV, B3 surge withstand on all F ports
    • Beryllium copper patented DSM® seizure technology
    • Sealed F ports conforms to SCTE standards
    • Power adapter included
    • Optional PCT-MPI-1G Power inserter available.
    • RoHs compliant
    • F-Port is 60 in-lbs tightening and loosening
    • Compares to Electroline EDA-FT08300

    Advanced Features:

    Patented DSM seizure technology

    • provides increased spring retention for better surface contact.
    • Increased spring retention for better surface contact even after repeated entry across maximum to minimum center conductor diameters.
    • Gold-plated, beryllium copper construction for better corrosion resistance, impedance matching, and less common path distortion.

    Bypass function

    • Bypass is accomplished through a passive modem port.
    • Provides uninterrupted service at all times for critical applications such as triple play cable telephony, that require high reliability networks.
