The 1-way Coaxial Tap 8dB Brilliant Line (Part number: 10100055) from Technetix is a Indoor Coaxial Tap with a coaxial loss of 8dB . 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.
Brilliant Line products offer a complete line of high frequency splitters and taps that have been developed for high volume applications within the local loop. The products are tested under extreme conditions, components in a local loop may be required to operate near salt water, along busy highways and in either very hot or cold ambient temperatures. Therefore these products are tested for Salt Spray, Vibration, Damp Heat and Operational Temperature ranges from -25°C to +70°C. The Brilliant Line employs specially developed magnesium/ ferrite materials so that insertion and return losses are minimal.
The SBN range is a special series of splitters developed and added to the Brilliant Line series in order to ensure maximum CPD protection. The housings of these models are made of zinc diecast finished with a Tin-Nickel (nickel-tin) plating and have specially designed F-connectors. These “press-in” F-connectors fit perfectly in their housings by means of double-D holes, ensuring that torque-and cantilever forces far exceed appropriate standards. For an even better HFperformance and CPD reduction, the press-in connectors are directly soldered to the PCB and made of brass covered with a Tin-Nickel plating. This also offers optimum anti-corrosion resistance and screening effectiveness. Conventional connectors made of zinc can suffer from cold flow, resulting in loose connectors. Laboratory and field tests with brass connectors show that this cold flow effect is reduced close to zero using the much harder brass material. The F-inner spring of this product series is made of beryllium copper which provides exceptional resilience/ contact pressure over a wide range of test gauges (0.511.30 mm).
All Brilliant Line models are designed for easy installation, even thicker connectors or filters can be mounted due to the ABS-brackets. The bracket isolates the unit from the mounting surface, not only preventing galvanic isolation corrosion caused by earth loops, but also hum modulation. Additionally the bracket offers the possibility to underpass (multi-taps excluded) a coaxial cable for compact and neat installation. If smaller outer dimensions are required, the bracket can be removed by hand or with a small tool. Furthermore, all models have double grounding screws/ facilities for easy linking and the multi-taps can be mounted both vertically and horizontally.
