Microlab extends conventional 2 input - 2 output Hybrid Coupler Technology to a totally new broadband 3x3 Hybrid Combiner, to address the many requirements to combine up to 3 signals in radio base stations to up to 3 antennas.
The CM-81 adds without mutual interaction up to 3 different wireless signals anywhere in the frequency band 700 to 2,700 MHz with low PIM, high isolation and excellent return loss. This feature of Hybrid Combiners means that the three inputs can be added together without the use of expensive, often special filters. This makes the unit very suitable for combining wireless signals from three independent service providers at a base station, in neutral host distributed antenna systems or leaky cable applications.
Input isolation is specified >25 dB across the entire band. Passive InterModulation, PIM, is specified at <-150 dBc, and guarantees down to <-155 dBc are available with an additional testing charge. Each input is rated for 60W average power, 3 kW peak.
This 3x3 Hybrid Combiner is available for immediate evaluation with either N or 7-16 mm connectors from Microlab/FXR and selected distributors. For complete details call 'Sales' at Microlab/FXR on (973) 386-9696 or check the Internet at www.microlab.fxr.com
