The Olson OTPN-3000 Precision Optic Node provides CATV headend operators with a unique node with an extensive array of features, small size and low-cost. The OTPN-3000 includes a high-performance 1550nm CATV receiver, a precision 3-wavelength (1310nm, 1490nm and 1550nm) optical power meter and battery power good for four hours of operation. The OTPN-3000 CATV receiver is fully compatible with all 1550nm forward path transmitters. The OTPN-3000 provides an output of +38 dBmV of RF over the entire optical input range, allowing multiple RF splits without the use of an external RF amplifier. The Precision Optic Node is unique because it operates over a ultra-wide optical input range of 8dBm to +4.5dBm without degrading performance.
