The PLM860SAW modulator features a digital phase-locked loop (PLL) and saw filter for superior adjacent channel performance and drift-free channel stability. This professional grade modulator maintains a full 55dBmV output on channels 23 to 135 while accommodating HRC and IRC offset frequencies (216-860MHz). The PLM860SAW is a very cost effective method to expand an existing cable system beyond 300MHz. The PLM860SAW was designed to extend channel capacity of systems using PCM55, PLM55, or PCM55SAW modulators. Its SAW filter provides superior sideband filtering, adjacent channel compatibility, and spurious free output. High quality modulation and RF level control potentiometers assure years of reliable operation. Easy lab retuning enables inventory savings and less down time. The PLM860SAW is shipped with all internal adjustments preset. FCC Docket 21006 offsets are standard. Pico Macom backs up this product with its industry leading 5-year limited warranty.
