- What's Included
The Shielded CATV Balun, 2-Pack allows RG6 coaxial cable to be replaced by Cat 5e/Cat 6/Cat 7 STP or UTP cable in the terrestrial RF environment. The Shielded CATV Balun allows broadband CATV equipment to be integrated into a structured cabling system when used in pairs, thereby allowing CATV equipment to be moved or added to any convenient modular wall outlet. When used with Cat 5e/6/7 shielded twisted pair cable, the connection supports greater RF amplification and therefore greater distance with less EMI/RFI egress versus other UTP CATV baluns. The Shielded CATV Balun also works in conjunction with MuxLab's CATV Hub 500300 and 500303 for a total cabling solution.
In a point-to-point scenario for CATV (superband and hyperband), VHF and FM, cable lengths of up to 50 meters may be achieved without amplification if the nominal input is about 15dB. In some applications, a 'tilt' amplifier may be required since the STP/UTP losses are higher than coax at the higher frequencies. Linear gain compensation of up to 20-25dB at 750MHz is usually adequate. Conversely, if amplification is used to compensate for losses at higher frequencies and long distances, it may be necessary to attenuate the lower frequency, shorter distance signals to avoid over-driving the TV monitors.
