Description

PCT's new PCT-VC-F15U MoCA bypass drop amplifier is designed to provide the ability to use MoCA technology to communicate to all the amplifier output ports from the modem port, bypassing the amplifier itself. The built-in triplex filter constrains the MoCA signals to the home network while providing the necessary MoCA bypass connection around the amplifier to enable in-home networking between eMTA, set-top boxes and other devices (for example: gaming consoles, PCs, laptops, tablets, etc.). The passive modem bypass port supports critical applications, such as telephony, requiring high reliability networks to provide uninterrupted service even in the event of power outages and / or amplifier failure.

Applications:

  • Distribution of video in the house for applications with a multi-room DVR
  • Home high speed networking
  • Allows internet service, videos and gaming to share bandwidth without losing speed and quality
  • High definition video streaming from the internet

Features:

  • 4 output RF MoCA amplifier + 1 modem output active return with unity gain
  • Auto termination upon power outage
  • Lowest distortions performance available IEEE 6 kV, B3 surge withstand on all RF ports
  • Sealed F ports conform to SCTE standards
  • Integrated MoCA triplex filter: All ports “talking” – MoCA devices on the bypass port can communicate to all other output ports.
  • Unity gain – upstream and downstream: Compensates for splitter loss.
  • Patented DSM seizure technology: Provides increased spring retention for better surface contact.
  • Passive bypass port: Eliminates loss of service due to power outages or amplifier failure.
  • Dual Mount Housing: Mount vertical with all ports down or horizontal with all ports facing out.
