Manufactured to precise performance standards, TruSpec’s TSC-series 1GHz professional commercial grade CATV Directional Couplers provide superb performance unsurpassed by competitors’ equivalent models. Applications range from residential to MDU installations in international and domestic cable distribution systems. These taps are used in applications requiring the bulk of the signal passing through one port while reduced signal passes from the tapped port. This feature ideally suits TSC-series taps for systems using looped or tree and branched architectures. Our advanced printed board circuitry includes special ferrite core material guaranteeing unsurpassed insertion loss, optimal isolation and return loss performance to 1GHz ensuring high-quality analog or digital signal transfer. All TSC-series F-port threads are precision machined, ensuring easy connector installation and removal, and improved port-to-connector interface. High retention internal seizing pins ensure excellent connectivity to connector center lead. Regular TSC-series back-plates are epoxy-sealed to provide superior RFI shielding >-70dB, while TSC-SB series directional couplers feature a solder-back cover-plate to provide the highest possible EMI-RFI shielding >-140dB eliminating signal ingress and providing a full environmental seal. Both TSC-series feature a thick tin coating over a zinc-alloy diecast housing to ensure excellent corrosion resistance. Each TSC-series directional coupler is fully tested at the factory and certified to SCTE standards.
