Blonder-Tongue RMDA 86A-30
Rack-Mounted Distribution Amplifier, 30dB, 54-860 MHz, Integrated Active Returns (5-40 MHz)

OUR PART #  RMDA86A-30


The RMDA-ARP (active return path) are rack mounted 2-way broadband distribution amplifiers. Utilizing push-pull hybrid amplifier technology, they are ideal for MATV, SMATV or CATV applications. The amplifiers have a forward bandwidth of 54 - 860 MHz with a gain of 30 dB. The reverse path of 5-40 MHz is field configurable for active or passive operation. The RMDA-ARP amplifier has built-in variable gain controls on both the forward and reverse paths. A forward path variable slope control is provided inter-stage as is the variable gain control. Additionally, a fixed forward equalizer and forward and reverse attenuator plug-ins can be installed for further signal conditioning at the input to the amplifier. 30 dB back-matched test ports at the input and output are provided for monitoring both forward and reverse signal levels without interrupting service. The amplifier is housed in a 1RU aluminum chassis that provides exceptional heat dissipation.
