1603A Broadband RF Distribution Amplifier with Remote M/C
Building on the success of the 1203C Broadband RF Distribution amplifier, the 1603A provides additional high performance
frequency outputs, enhanced this with a full remote monitor and control interface.
With the monitor and control, a remote user can easily monitor status of each of the inputs/outputs of the unit 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.
For added flexibility, individual outputs can be enabled/disabled via remote control so that unused outputs are isolated from the alarm system.
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.
In most applications the phase noise capability of the unit will out-perform the input signal performance to such a degree that no additive phase noise will be noticeable on the outputs.
Isolation output to output is >100 dB and harmonics are <-40 dB. The unit provides a fixed gain of 1, and all outputs are provided on convenient BNC connectors. Outputs provide up to 13dBm into a 50 ohm load.
