5/4 Multiswitch: Signal MP-0504L (active terrestrial TV)
Top view
New family of Signal multiswitches has been designed for individual antenna systems installed in one-family houses or in small apartment houses etc. The biggest advantage of the new series is better isolation between inputs. The multiswitches have built-in compensation of cable attenuation. This eliminates the impact of cable attenuation with increasing frequency, guarantying the same signal level in the entire band. Additionally, they have a switch to power a preamplifier in terrestrial TV path with 12 VDC.
The MP-0916L R6944816 multiswitch is equipped with LTE filter for cutting unwanted signals above channel 60 (791- 862 MHz) coming from LTE networks.
The device distributes signals from two satellites and terrestrial television to up to sixteen subscriber sockets. It has been designed for one-family houses and small apartment buildings. We can therefore connect up to sixteen single satellite receivers. If some receiver has a hard drive (PVR), its double tuner will need connection with two outputs of the multiswitch. Any unused output of the multiswitch must be terminated with 75 ohm resistor (R66205).
Signal multiswitches are very attractive offer for radial installations (one multiswitch, the signal distributed radially) up to 16 outlets, distributing signals from one, two or four satellites. They are ideal devices for one-family houses, small apartment houses etc. In DIPOL Library we show example diagrams of such installations.
For cascadable solutions - larger systems and/or lower terrestrial signals (requiring to use external RF amplifiers) - we recommend top-quality TERRA multiswitches. A lot of information on designing large multiswitch systems has been collected in Professional multiswitch systems.
Maximum output level 85 dB of the terrestrial path means in practice that the input signals should not exceed 82 dB. Signals with a higher level may overdrive transistor switches, blocking satellite signal.
The multiswitch is suitable for indoor use only.
