ULTRA Broadband Video Baluns

  Expanding the applications opened by its Broadband Video Baluns, ETS introduces the PV884 and PV885 - ULTRA Broadband Video Baluns. Frequency range has been increased and EMI reduced, both due to enhanced filtering and an all-metal enclosure.

  FCC requirements preclude boosting signal levels to the values required to guarantee preset distances. Distance achievable is a function of signal level, balance and the degree to which the cable used unbalances the signal. Cat5e maintains signal balance at least 5dB better than Cat5.  Level 7 or equivalent cable is another 5dB better, providing for a signal drive level of not more than 46dBmV.

  The PV884 offers a BNC connector for use with professional grade equipment. "Prosumer" and consumer electronics that connect using 'F' connectors require the ETS PV885 or PV888 baluns.
