Model SD SWMD1 provides 60 dB of isolation of the 2.3 MHz SWM control signal from the CATV+SWM port to the CATV port.

The 2.3 MHz from apartment 1 is prevented from mixing with the 2.3 MHz signal from apartment 2 in the CATV network.

Model SD SWMD2 is intended for CATV and SWM separation or combining where isolation is less critical.

Model SD SWMD2 features low in-band insertion loss. SWM control 2.3 MHz and MRV / DECA isolation is 35 dB minimum.

Model SD SWMD3 is intended for CATV and SWM isolation where both 2.3 MHz and MRV filtering is critical. The D3 adds a band reject filter at 475 to 625 MHz.

The SD SWMD3 is suggested for applications where MRV filtering occurs in a single diplexer.

A Satellite Master Antenna TV (SMATV) system controlled and owned by the system operator has cable frequencies 54 to 806 MHz forward and 7 to 40 MHz return. Both the SWM signals and the SMATV signals are to be delivered to each apartment on a single coax. DIRECTV mutli-room viewing (MRV) sends high level signals in the 475 to 625 MHz band from receivers. Model H24 and HR24 ship with multi-room viewing enabled. MRV and SMATV signals CAN NOT share the same coax. Filtering is required to keep the MRV signals within the apartment.

Models SD SWMD1 and SD SWMD3 internally filter two frequency bands of CATV (7 to 40 MHz & 54 to 806 MHz) and three bands of DIRECTV; DC to 2.3 MHz, 475 to 625 MHz and 940 to 2150 MHz. SMATV signals from 7 MHz to 806 MHz are combined with the SWM16 940 to 1840 MHz output in model SD SWMD1. The SD SWMD1 features 60 dB isolation of the 2.3 MHz SWM control signal to the CATV input. It also provides sharp filtering to allow the CATV 7 -40 MHz sub-band to pass to the apartment. Model SD SWMD3 separates the CATV signals to feed the Cable Modem. Cable Modem 7 to 40 MHz return signals pass back to the IDF closet. The SD SWMD3 features a band reject filter for the MRV 475 to 625 MHz signals generated by the DIRECTV receivers.

MRV signals from receivers can be blocked by model SD SWMD3 so SMATV and SWM signals can share the single coax all the way to the receiver. Higher SMATV levels are required to push the SMATV deeper in the apartment. Model LA141R-T or model LA281R-T may be used to increase the SWM & SMATV levels by 14 or 28 dB respectively.

SONORA models SD SWMD2 and SD SWMD3 internally filter two frequency bands of CATV (7 to 40 MHz & 54 to 806 MHz) and three bands of DIRECTV ( DC to 2.3 MHz, 475 to 625 MHz and 940 to 2150 MHz). DECA signals from 475 MHz to 625 MHz are combined with the SWM16 940 to 1840 MHz output. The SD SWMD3 features 60 dB isolation of the DECA signals from reaching the SWM2 output. We do not want DECA signals combining with SWM1 to mix with DECA signals combining with SWM2. Note that in the SWM16 there is 6 dB isolation of the DECA from SWM1 to SWM2.

Model LA141R-T may be used with model SD SWMD2 to extend the IDF to receiver drop distance by 150 feet. Less 475 to 625 MHz DECA isolation is required in the SD SWMD2 when proceeded with the LA141R-T amplifier. The amplifier blocks the DECA signal from reaching the SWM1 output. For DRE applications a SWM output is split (8) ways to serve (8) rooms. There is (1) DECABB1MR0-01 adaptor to serve the (8) rooms. The 2.3 MHz isolation in the SD SWMD2 is sufficient for this application.
