CA14R-T & CA24R-T


SITUATION
You need to add TV outlets for local broadcast or cable
TV High definition signals. Data modem service is also
needed to each TV outlet.

SOLUTION
Models CA14R-T and CA24R-T boost broadcast or cable
TV signals while passing cable modem signals. Model
CA14R provides 14 dB gain and the CA24R provides
24 dB gain.

RELATED CONSIDERATIONS
Model LA141xR amplifier should be used when both
CATV or local broadcast signals share the coax with 950
to 3500 MHz DBS signals.
DESCRIPTION
Indoor / Outdoor 50 to 1000 MHz amplifiers with
Use optional model HRFPI with the power
supply to line power the amplifiers via the
passive 15 to 40 MHz sub-band return.

Models CA24R-T and CA24R-T increase the CATV or GHS8
off-air signal level while allowing cable modem low 12 dBmV
frequency signals to return to the signal provider.

Data Modem Router


Model CA14R-T increases the typical 10 dBmV CATV
signal to compensate for adding an 8-way splitter to
an existing installation.
0 dBmV
The output level after the amplifier and 8-way splitter @ 200 ft
is now stronger than the signal arriving from the cable
company.
