ATX Networks CA-30/550 550-MHz 30 dB Broadband Push-Pull Distribution Amplifier

The CA-30/550 is a high quality push-pull, wall-mounted distribution amplifier that produces signals with extremely low noise and harmonic distortion. This amplifier is capable of 82-channel operation over the 54 MHz to 550 MHz range and makes an excellent distribution system amplifier in MDU, CATV, and SMATV systems. 

ATX Networks CA-30/550 550-MHz 30 dB Broadband Push-Pull Distribution Amplifier Features

  • 30 dB gain for optimal carrier-to-noise ratio and superior picture quality
  • Employs state-of-the-art hybrid push-pull technology for distortion-free audio and video quality
  • Adjustable slope and gain controls for easy system balancing
  • Easy-access controls and low loss (-20 dB) test point enable simplified setup and performance monitoring
  • The shielded enclosure provides over 95 dB of RFI shielding performance reducing leakage and ingress
  • Built-in lightning and line voltage surge protection protects the unit from damage

Because of its extremely low noise figure and low distortion, the CA-30/550 is ideally suited for use in larger networks where amplifier cascading is required. In expanding bi-directional broadband systems, ATX’s PIDA series bi-directional amplifiers should be used.
