The TIN40-1200 is a one way fiber optic node for CATV, SMATV, FTTx, MDU or private business applications. The TIN40-1200 has a wide optical input range from 1200 to 1600 nm, making it ideal for either 1310 nm or 1550 nm systems. The fiber optic receiver has an AGC circuit to maintain a RF output over a -6 to +2 dB optical input level. The high RF output level of 40 dBmV eliminates the need for a separate RF amplifier for distribution. A 0-18 dB gain control makes system balancing easy without external pads. The GaAs E-pHEMT push pull hybrid provides superior performance with low distortions. The node uses an external 12VDC power supply (included) which can be connected directly or diplexed on the RF output cable for remote powering. The optical input is a SC/APC connnector and features a multicolor LED for input level reference.
