Pasternack Enterprises has launched a line of RF tappers. These low-loss power tappers (also known as signal tappers, signal samplers, equal/unequal power splitters or dividers) are used to either evenly or unevenly sample or split RF signals in LTE, Tetra, private mobile radio, UMTS or Wi-Fi systems for in-building and outdoor DAS applications.
Pasternack is offering three designs of RF tappers including two-way, three-way and four-way body styles and are available with Type-N or 7/16 DIN connectors. Equal and unequal split tappers utilize a ruggedized sealed construction, using an air dielectric structure without solder joints and have connectors with O-rings for IP65/67 required installations. Unequal signal tappers from Pasternack are available in a variety of split ratios from 2:1 to 1000:1 (4.8dB to 30dB) and operate from 376 MHz to 6 GHz. The company’s equal split tappers provide excellent performance across wireless bands from 376 MHz to 2.7 GHz, making them an ideal solution for in-building DAS.
The RF power tappers permit continuous direct current through the main line while passing RF power with minimal ripple and insertion loss. The low-PIM signal tappers have a max power rating up to 700 Watts and are designed to assist in cell phone and radio installations operating in frequency bands such as LTE, Tetra, PMR and Wi-Fi. The RF power dividers are IP65 / IP67 and RoHS compliant. www.pasternack.com
