Ground-Up Design Provides Breakthrough in Efficient Antenna Distribution
ORLANDO: Professional Wireless Systems’ new DB Series Filtered Receive Multi-coupler represents a breakthrough in high-quality antenna distribution. PWS General Manager Carl Cordes reports the DB-16 is designed to function as the backbone of a broad range of wireless antenna distribution system functions including broadcast, live sports, permanent install and corporate.
“After years of modifying other products to function effectively in diverse RF applications, our R&D team took a fresh look at the multi-coupler issue,” Cordes says. “The DB-16 was developed to meet the real-world needs of today’s hyper-congested RF world,”
Brand-agnostic, and compatible with most wireless receivers, the PWS DB Series eliminates the inter-mods, over-modulation, de-sensitizing, and over-sensitizing issues frequently encountered when working with multiple-manufacturer products. By incorporating cutting edge components, including multiple custom filters,
the DB-16 represents a dependable solution for today’s demanding RF needs.
PWS DB Series features include:
* Extensive Filtering Ranges with stock or custom configurations and multiple ranges available in a single unit
* Unity output 1dBm
* 4, 8, 16 and custom output configurations
* Single or multiple input antenna zones
* Locking IEC cord
* Diversity or non-diversity (for intercom use) as specified
* Redundant universal power supplies – 110 to 240 VAC, 50-60 Hz.
* High IP3, îŽ§ typical
* ON/OFF DC Bias voltage with auto-reset short protection
* Panel mount variable antenna input attenuators for external line amps
“The RF industry is saturated with multiple formats and technologies which are extremely useful, but not always compatible,” Cordes concludes. “Our goal for the DB-16 is to provide an efficient and affordable method to ameliorate some of these enduring problems.”
