The 2-way Coaxial Outdoor Tap 14dB 1GHz Regal Style (Part number: OTR-U-2-14/I) from Technetix is a Outdoor Coaxial Tap with a coaxial loss of 14dB . Are typically used in CATV broadband networks outdoor. Coaxial taps are low-loss devices that work better with unequal lenght cable runs since it sends a fixed amount of signal. This way, the tap attenuates the signal by applying different amount of loss to each output port, so that when are used different cable lenghts, the output keeps the same to all cables.
OTR 2-way outdoor taps are compatible with Regal RMT2002 series taps. Providing integrated Ingress Safe™ noise reduction technology, 6 kV surge protection and excellent RF performance, OTR taps feature sealed female F-ports for drop cable connection on the faceplate and 5/8”-24 NEF-female ports for in and output cable connection on the housing. The housing has an AC-RF bypass switch as standard, allowing faceplates to be changed without loss of power or RF through the tap housing.
The taps may be strand mounted through the clamp at the back of the housing or surface mounted with an optional bracket. Tested under extreme environmental conditions, the taps are designed to operate near salt water, along busy highways and in very hot conditions. As an option these taps can accept field configurable plugin modules which provide increased flexibility in system design. It is possible to use cable equalizers, return path attenuators, and cable simulators in order to fine-tune return path performance
