Contemporary Research 5092-001 overview

  • 1Description

The Contemporary Research QDA4-45 is an amplified RF combiner that can switch between one or four inputs, with adjustable amplification up to 50 dBmV. You can add up to 32 dBmV gain for one input, and 25 dB for four inputs. Designed for QMOD HDTV applications, the unit can receive an RF feed from QMOD modulators or QCA9-33 active combiners. Inputs can be switched between one or four inputs, with selectable gain. This compact unit mounts two-across in a single rack space using CR RK1 and RK-2 rack kits (available separately), and can be mixed with QMOD HDTV modulators using the same rack kits.
