8-way active splitter diagram

This 8-way splitter enables the sharing of a single Antenna/Downconverter unit between up to eight tuner boxes by dividing the IF signal eight ways. This is an economically viable solution for apartment complexes etc. Included internal to the unit is an IF amplifier and bias tees. The amplifier provides adequate gain to compensate for splitter losses plus 100 feet of feed cable. No additional biasing of the splitter is needed, although an optional DC power jack and DC supply are available. Type F connectors are standard.
