This smaller sized Hybrid has been designed to meet the special needs of the wireless market. Hybrids are most commonly used to combine two wireless carriers to a single antenna feed or distribution cable. This requires the termination of one output port in 50W and results in a 3 dB loss in each signal. In situations where two similar feeds are required, as required for an in-building application, both outputs may be used, eliminating the need for a termination and the 3 dB loss. Note this Coupler is not a 90° Quadrature Hybrid, which is available as Model CA-84N with 30 dB of isolation.
Mechanically they are passivated aluminum housings, moisture sealed for outside applications to meet IP65. Connectors are spaced to allow controlled wrench tightening.
