F 2W tap – 5…2400 MHz 12 dB


Tap equipped with 2 tap ways and F connectors for SMATV signals. Due to the tap losses (12 dB), installation on the first floor is recommended (TA type).
Conceived for indoor installation, it can also be used outdoors, with a case (ref. 4177).

Given a set of taps installed in series, can the last trap be replaced by a splitter to improve attenuations?

The use of a splitter to replace a tap is not recommended when the different outputs correspond to different users. The reason for this is that the rejection among the outputs of a tap is much higher than the rejection among the outputs of a splitter. Furthermore, any operation performed by a user on its UAP could impact the neighbour sharing that same splitter. Another issue that should be taken into account is the network load. When a tap is installed as the last equipment, a load is inserted on its path so that the whole network is adapted to 75 Ohm. If a splitter is installed instead, the network will not be fully loaded, which will produce impedance mismatches.
