The 8-Way Outdoor Coaxial Tap 18dB 1.0 GHz Philips Style (Part number: 1200562) from ARRIS is a Outdoor Coaxial Tap with a coaxial loss of 18dB . 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.
The ARRIS 9000‐L Power Bypass Tap (PBT) series 1 GHz multi‐tap device taps off part of the input RF signal, dividing it into multiple outputs and allowing remaining signal to pass through. A multi‐tap combines a directional coupler and splitter to produce a specific value or signal loss from the multi‐tap’s input to its tap ports and are available in 2‐way, 4‐way, and 8‐way models that offer 2‐, 4‐, and 8‐tap ports, respectively. The compact design fits easily into a 6‐inch pedestal.
