1203C BROADBAND RF Distribution

The ptf 1203C Broadband RF Distribution amplifier provides high performance frequency references for laboratory or system use.
The ptf 1203C uses two stages of input signal buffering to distribute the input signal to 12 separate outputs, and insure maximum isolation between individual output signals.
In most applications the phase noise capibility of the ptf 1203C will outperform the input signal performance to such a degree that no additive phase noise will be noticeable on the outputs.
Isolation output to output is >100 dB and harmonics are < -40 dB.

1203C-MC WITH REMOTE MONITOR AND CONTROL

Building on the success of the ptf 1203C Broadband RF Distribution amplifier, the ptf 1203C-MC provides not only the high performance distribution of frequency references, but enhances this with a full remote monitor and control interface.
With the added monitor and control, a remote user can easily monitor status of each of the inputs/outputs of the unit on either RS232 or Ethernet with Telnet, web browser and SNMP interfaces. Optionally the unit can take two separate inputs into an input switch with either fully automatic or manual control.
For added flexibility, individual outputs can be enabled/disabled via remote control so that unused outputs are isolated from the alarm system.
Input and output status is immediately evident from front panel indicators of each channel. Also auto/manual selection of the
auto switched input is available from the front panel key pad.
In most applications the phase noise capability of the unit will outperform the input signal performance to such a degree that no additive phase noise will be noticeable on the outputs.
Isolation output to output is >100 dB and harmonics are < -40 dB. The unit provides a fixed gain of 1, and all outputs are provided on convenient BNC connectors. Outputs provide up to 13dBm into a 50 ohm load
