Microlab/FXR, represented by ASD Technology in Australia has announced a completely new concept in low-cost 2, 3 and 4 way wideband reactive Power Splitters. The new power splitters are 60% lighter than the series they replace yet retain the established reliability and exceptional bandwidth of 380 to 2,500 MHz, thus including Tetra, SMR/PMR, and all cellular bands, including the new 700 MHz and 3G (UMTS).
Microlab/FXR Model Dx-88FD series of Power Splitter is ideal for designing passive in-building wireless distributed antenna systems (DAS) now being required to meet homeland security issues. The high reliability required of such DAS systems is easily met with a passive network approach.
The low loss of reactive components such as the D2-88FD pictured above, help make the passive design realizable without recourse to amplifiers or other active components. Such a passive approach enhances reliability, cuts installation cost and has a high communications survival potential in an emergency situation. Insertion loss is <0.05 dB, PIM is guaranteed to be <-150dBc and units are compliant to IP68 and RoHS.
