COMEGA

Introduction

The philosophy of the COMEGA series is: buy quality equipment now; by investing only a little more
in your networks equipment you will save more in the long run.
In this brochure you will find a broad range of products with careful electrical and mechanical design
which will contribute to increased quality in the network and thereby lower the maintenance costs.
Fiber optical networks are continuously getting more attention, but the industry still has a large installed
base using coaxial equipment and with the increasing demand for triple play the quality of the coaxial
products will still be vital for many years to come.
In DKT A/S we are devoted to contribute to the future development of the industry and our vision is:

To be the preferred supplier of Coaxial & Optical Quality Equipment


for CATV networks on selected markets in Europe.
We will accomplish this by:
Always delivering products of the highest standard.
Continuously developing products which contributes
significantly to increased efficiency and/or lower total costs.
Always to increase innovation in close co-operation with national & international partners.

The low variation in tap loss on the


range of multitaps makes network
design and installation easy.

INFO
Return loss is an expression meaning how close you
are to the impedance requested.
CENELEC categories:

Category B: 18 dB @ 5-40 MHz -1,5 dB/oct.

Typical problems with low return loss:


Poor linearity = large frequency
dependent losses
Reflexions on analogue TV-signals
Omission on digital signals due to poor
linearity

COMEGA Amplifiers
The COMEGA line of amplifiers complement the range of
products for home installations. Whenever extra signal power
is required in the forward path of CATV the COMEGA line of
home amplifiers will fit into any requirement for quality signal
distribution (examples are shown in the installation guide which
is distributed free of charge).

There are 4 different versions to choose among depending on


the requirements:

The 12dB with fixed amplification is suitable .in most installations as it is often enough for additional wall outlets.

The 24dB with fixed attenuation is suitable when several


extra outlets are required

The 20dB with attenuator is a universal type, which can be used for do-it-yourself concepts as well as a
standard amplifier for the installers.

The 20dB with attenuator and tilt is the most advanced amplifier and is often used as the standard amplifier
for CATV technicians as it incorporates more adjustment facilities.

During the development of this range of amplifiers, we have focused on the output level and the noise figure,
which has resulted in 4 genuine amplifiers for CATV applications.

INFO !!
Saturation, Intermodulation, C/N-Conditions
The above well-known problems often occurs, if you choose an
amplifier with the wrong amplification/output.
If the maximum output of the amplifier is too low, you will have
saturation/intermodulation problems.
If the amplification is not adjusted to the need, you will have problems with the c/n-conditions.
Solution:
Choose an amplifier with a sufficiently high output and an amplification adjusted to the need.

The line of amplifiers also


includes a high power line
amplifier which can be used
as a line extender.

for the final mounting of the COMEGA Basic utilizing an application with stacked taps or splitters.

The Basic mounting Fix has been developed to make stackability possible for spacesaving
reasons. Item 49135 comes with inside threads and item 49136 with an inside/outside thread.

COMEGA Basic Taps


COMEGA Basic is a standard line of COMEGA products including the most
commonly used taps & splitters in CATV. The Basic line meets all the different
requirements from the professional CATV industry which is vital to build and
run a profitable two-way cable TV network.
With COMEGA Basic, we have focused on designing a cost effective line
which makes an attractive alternative in terms of:
Price/quality
Reliability
Technical performance
All ports point in the same direction, which, together with stackability, creates an
efficient and space saving solution with easy access.

INFO
Screening efficiency is an expression meaning how resistant a component or a CATV network is to external
noise or unwanted signals.
As a modern CATV network today typically have 30-60 TV-channels, you have to use the S-channels.
These are extra vulnerable, as these frequencies are also used for other services (such as eg. mobile radio).
CENELEC categories:
Category A: 85 dB @ 5-470 MHz, 75 dB @ 470-860 MHz
Category B: 75 dB @ 5-470 MHz, 65 dB @ 470-860 MHz
