The HFIT150P RF Isolating Patch Panel for analogue RF, high speed digital and CATV is a transformer based solution that provides reduction and elimination of hum and noise. This noise can interfere with both analogue and digital video transmission. It is caused by the difference in ground potential, especially those above 20 volts, or induced currents in long cable runs.
This common mode noise results in the degradation of the absolute bit timing of high speed digital signals leading to bit errors. These bit errors will at first reduce the quality and integrity of the signal and data content within the transmission signal but since digital signals do not degrade gracefully but suffer from a cliff effect, the digital signal can be lost altogether. In analogue RF and CATV signals the common mode noise can be demodulated to reduce the quality of the signal and the signal content.
The RF Isolating Patch Panel can also provide crucial protection to sensitive circuits where ground potential differences exist between equipment. The breakdown voltage of each channel is 1kV.
The HFIT150P RF Isolating Patch Panel comes in a compact 19″ 1RU rack mounting unit. These units have BNC connectors as standard, other connector types are available, contact us for more details.
