16dB FIXED 1GHz MINI F-TYPE ATTENUATOR PADS
In-Line RF Attenuators
Attenuators reduce the full range of RF signals by a set amount. In "tuning" video distribution systems, it is often easier to over amplify the signals, then reduce them where desired.
attenuator pads in-line with coax cable and reduce signal
strength by rated amount. Try different combinations until you
get the best picture quality. Use to balance signal strength
from different sources.
This in-line attenuators can be inserted in coaxial cable feeds to reduce signal amplitude levels. Combinations of attenuators may be used together to create greater insertion losses. For example, if a cable feed was found to have a signal level of 25 dBmV, and a level of only 5 dBmV is desired, then one 20dB could be used create a 20 dB insertion loss, thereby reducing the signal level from 25 dBmV down to 5 dBmV.
An attenuator is a passive microwave component which, when inserted in the signal path of a system, reduces the signal by a specified amount. They normally possess a low VSWR which makes them ideal for reducing load VSWR in order to reduce measurement uncertainties. They are sometimes used simply to absorb power, either to reduce it to a measurable level, or in the case of receivers to establish an exact level to prevent overload of following stages.
