AC9100 NEO Remote PHY Node
AC9100 NEO Remote PHY Node

The AC9400 RPD is an intelligent, 1x2x4 segmentable node equipped with a remote PHY module. It offers a high output level (Umax 138 QAM / 116.0 dBµV) and supports 1.2 GHz/204 MHz bandwidth. Remote monitoring and control is available with a transponder (HMS/CATVisor or DOCSIS).

Features at a glance:

  • RPD module with RF overlay support.
  • 1.2 GHz GaN HEMT technology
  • Return path supports 204 MHz bandwidth
  • Innovative splice organizing
  • Redundant power supplies
  • Digital return path option
  • Automatic alignment of both DS and US
  • Flexible electrically controlled forward and return path signal routing
  • Efficient surge and ESD protection
  • With AC6992/AC6981 transponder plug-in:
    • CATVisor / HMS (AC6992) or DOCSIS (AC6981) remote connection
    • ALC with fully user programmable pilots
    • Downstream spectrum analyser
    • Upstream signal quality monitoring with automatic ingress control
    • True plug-and-play with single pushbutton alignment
    • Return path pilot generator (AC6992)
