1200-MC Series, Broadband RF, Digital, and Time Code Distribution With Remote Monitor and Control Interface

Building on the success of the 1200 series Broadband Distribution amplifiers, the 1200- MC series provides not only high
performance distribution of frequency and timing references, but enhances this with a full remote monitor and control interface.
With the added monitor and control, allows status monitoring of inputs/outputs on either RS232 or Ethernet with Telnet, web browser and SNMP interfaces. Optionally the unit can take two separate inputs into an input switch with either fully automatic or manual control.

Input and output status is immediately evident from front panel indicators of each channel. Also auto/manual selection of the
auto switched input is available from the front panel key pad.
Low jitter / phase noise insures top quality delivery of input to up to 12 output channels.
High isolation insures minimum impact on any other output in the event of one of the outputs being overloaded. Inputs and outputs are provided on convenient BNC connectors. Output drive provides up to 13dBm or 5V CMOS/TTL into a 50 ohm load (dependent upon model). Individual outputs can be enabled / disabled via remote control so that unused outputs are isolated from the alarm system.
