The Z-Balun DPX is one of the essential components of Z-Band’s high definition video distribution system. It is located at the receive end of the system and permits a TV, Set Top Box/Cable Box or PC with a Tuner Card to be connected to the system for HDTV over CAT 5e or better cable. The balun is not only an impedance matching device, but serves also as a small self-adjusting amplifier and signal conditioner that senses its distance from the hub, and adjusts its output to assure proper signal level to the TV at distances up to 100 meters. It also enables communications with VOD systems and set top boxes from CATV providers. The input to the Z-Balun DPX from a wall outlet is connected via an RJ-45 Jack and its output features an F-Connector and an auxiliary RJ-45 Jack for IP application.
Available in free-hanging configurations; a uni-directional (ZBT0010021) capability for RF video only, or a bi-directional (ZBT0010022) capability for video, data, and VOD applications.
- Automatically senses horizontal category cable distance as shown by LED indicators on free-hanging balun. Adjusts TV receive level by inserting proper signal conditioning algorithm
- Provides unique identification impedance signature to Z-Distribution REG for port activation. DATA (DOCSIS)/FSK preamble activates the return path
