    The PCT-VCF-18AUPIN RF amplifier is designed to support critical applications such as telephony that require high reliability networks to provide uninterrupted service at all times. PCT-VC series 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. High Quality PCT amplifiers feature a lightweight powder coated and weather sealed housing for superior corrosion protection. The PCTVCF18AUPIN amplifier has precision machined F ports (conforms to SCTE standards) that have beryllium copper seizure mechanisms to provide optimal distribution and amplification of your RF signals.

    Applications: 

    • Distribution of video in the house for applications with a multi-room DVR
    • Home high speed networking
