OLD BRIDGE, NJ / May 23, 2022 / Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE American: BDR) today announced the release of its newest Rack-Mount Distribution Amplifier (RMDA), the RMDA 1000-42P, expanding on its best-selling broadband amplifier series. The RMDA 1000 is a completely self-contained high gain, 1 Gigahertz amplifier designed specifically for HFC signal distribution systems requiring low distortion characteristics.
The RMDA 1000-42P has expanded bandwidth supporting up to 1002 MHz, with a 42dB high-gain design, making it useful in systems which use direct cable-drops as a signal source, or as the launch amplifier in a headend or any HFC cable distribution network. The RMDA 1000 features power doubling amplifier technology for high RF output levels and low distortion. The 1 RU rack unit has easy-to-use Gain and Slope controls on the front panel for convenience and is housed in an aluminum chassis providing exceptional heat dissipation, allowing long term operation at high ambient temperatures without degradation of performance or reliability.
“Our new RMDA 1000 broadband amplifier can be used in almost any headend, MDU, campus or any other type of cable distribution system”, said Scott Wells, Vice President, Distributor Sales, Blonder Tongue Laboratories. “The extended 1 GHz bandwidth coupled with high gain and low noise figures offer our customers the opportunity to feed more drops and increase signal levels, eliminating the need for additional line amplifiers in many situations and offering tremendous value to our customers. We’ve made significant updates to this version of the RMDA 1000 with added features and performance.”
The new RMDA 1000-42P is designed and built by Blonder Tongue Laboratories in their New Jersey, USA based factory, just recently began production, and is available for order within normal lead times.
