Power Saving CATV Distribution Amplifiers Upgrades
4Cable TV, Inc. offers the cable TV industry up to a dramatic 50 percent decrease in current (power) requirements while extending the bandwidth of 750 mHz and 860 mHz Amplifiers The company has developed proprietary circuitry, in a new SOT-115J package that allows a 750 or 870 mHz amplifier to be upgraded to a 1 GHz CATV amplifier while reducing the current consumption by up to 50%. This saving alone could positively affect the ROI calculations on an 1 GHz upgrade.
Current CATV 1 GHz line extenders draw approximately 850 mA of current and have distortions in the mid to low 70s. A 4Cable TV PowerMiser™ Line extender with equivalent RF gain will draw approximately 410 mA and maintain distortions in the same mid to low 70s range.
The cable industry is again upgrading their plant to 1 GHz although at a slower pace than in the past, and the timing is perfect to replace the existing modules with new ones which utilize the Company’s PowerMiser™ circuitry.
The Company’s technology and engineers are capable of upgrading most platforms. Please call with your model numbers and we can tell you what is possible
By implementing the PowerMiser™ technology it is estimated that the savings to the cable TV industry would be $45 million per year in the U.S. alone. In addition to significant power savings, other advantages of the 4Cable TV PowerMiser™ products include the following:
Higher reliability due to lower heat generated by the amplifier;
Longer operation of standby power supplies; and
Less voltage drop in the cable resulting in fewer power supplies needed
Wall Street is increasingly expecting CATV companies to show profits in addition to positive cash flow, and by utilizing the PowerMiser™ technology more revenue will go to the bottom line.
