The TLT compact taps are easy to install with a tough, compact housing and some models are stackable. All F-connector contacts meet the SCTE standards (ANSI SCTE 02 2006). The material of the inner spring has been designed for connecting coax cables with an inner core of 0.56 to 1.30 mm. It retains this elasticity and provides effective clamping force even when varying thicknesses of inner conductor are connected in succession. The intermodulation performance, which is an important factor in high level return path signals, has been greatly improved through a newly developed ferrite and specially designed circuits. The high frequency shielding exceeds Class A requirements (EN-50083-2:2006) over the whole frequency range from 5 MHz to 1000 MHz. The taps have an epoxy sealed tongue and groove back cover.
For indoor use, though they are also specified for use within street-side plant
