Commack, NY, September 10, 2004 - TERK Technologies Corp. will broaden its T2 line of custom installation signal management solutions at CEDIA 2004 with the introduction of its AP -RF Pole -Mount Inline Amplifier, designed for use with an off -air antenna to provide increased signal strength for improved reception. The AP -RF features adjustable gain to fine -tune its performance to any installation, and is designed to mount directly to an antenna mast.
The AP -RF is engineered to deliver maximum reception of off -air signals, incorporating a high -power, ultra -low -noise amplifier with an adjustable gain from 10dB to 25dB, and an FM trap to block unwanted frequency ranges that could otherwise compromise reception quality. The AP -RF also contains a built in tilt compensator. It receives its power directly from the coaxial cable, simplifying installation by eliminating the need for additional power cable connections.
The AP -RF is fully compatible with HDTV off -air antennas, thanks to its high -bandwidth design that enables the full bandwidth of HDTV signals to be passed, with no degradation in quality.
Complementing its exceptional performance, the AP -RF is designed for total installation flexibility. It can be used either outdoors or indoors, and installs between an off -air antenna
and a TERK T2 Multiswitch or RF Splitter. The AP -RF includes clamps that attach it to a pole or antenna mast, and features integral brackets that enable it to be easily mounted to a wall
or flat surface. Its housing is sealed and weatherproofed, and the amplifier gain control is located in a recess with a protective cover, ensuring reliable long -term service outdoors.
Pat Comunale, Vice President of Sales, TERK Technologies pointed out: "The AP -RF is the ideal accessory for optimizing the performance of any off -air antenna installation. In particular, it is especially suited to HDTV applications, where reception is totally dependent on obtaining a strong enough signal, as well as multiroom installations with long cable distances." Like every T2 product, the AP -RF utilizes premium construction and internal components, such as high -quality connectors, advanced amplifier technology and weatherproofed indoor/outdoor construction that enables its use even under extreme environmental conditions.
Pricing and availability of the AP -RF Pole Mount Inline Amplifier will be announced.
