Montreal, Canada - MuxLab Inc, a leading designer and manufacturer of security video and audio-video connectivity solutions is pleased to announce its latest addition to its broadband CATV line….Shielded CATV Balun (500306).

Montreal, Canada - MuxLab Inc, a leading designer and manufacturer of security video and audio -video connectivity solutions is pleased to announce its latest addition to its broadband CATV line….Shielded CATV Balun (500306). The Shielded CATV Balun pushes the limits of RF video transmission via Cat5e/6/7 by supporting greater RF amplification while minimizing RF egress. The 500306 has a 900 MHz bandwidth and is fully shielded to support shielded Cat5e/6/7 cabling systems.


The 500306 is designed to be used where shielded twisted pair is required in order to minimize potential RF intermference with nearby systems. In some installations, additional RF amplification is needed to push higher RF channel frequencies over Cat5e/6/7 cable. The shielded enclosure coupled with STP cable allows greater RF amplification to be applied while minimizing RFI/EMI interference. Used in pairs, the Shielded CATV Balun has lower insertion loss and wider bandwidth versus other CATV baluns thereby supporting greater cable lengths over all terrestrial RF analog/digital and Internet channel frequencies. The 500306 works in conjunction with other RF video distribution equipment such as RF splitters, amplifiers, modulators, tuner and cable modems for a total cabling solution. Actual performance over Cat5e/6/7 depends signal input power, highest channel frequency and receiver sensitivity.

The Shielded CATV Balun is installed where Cat5e/6/7 cable is more cost -efficient or where coax cable is not available within specified distance limits. Applications for the Shielded CATV Balun include; residential RF video distribution, Pay -TV services, guestroom entertainment, Internet and private broadband video networks. The product also features a built -in "F" and RJ45S connectors for ease of connection to the CATV equipment and structured cabling system and is backed by a lifetime warranty.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
