Radio Active Designs Debuts Wireless Antenna Combiner for 900MHz Band

The TX-8/900M wireless antenna combiner from Radio Active Designs.

Radio Active Designs (RAD) recently announced the availability of their popular TX-8 Wireless Antenna Combiner for the 900MHz band, the TX-8 / 900M.

The TX-8 / 900M can be used with any UHF in-ear monitoring (IEM) or IFB systems operating in the 900MHz band, specifically 941-960 MHz – the entire spectrum now available through the FCC.

The unit allows the connection of up to eight UHF transmitters to one antenna. Advanced active-linear design reduces intermodulation products to exceptionally low levels to minimise interference while providing compatibility with all forms of modulation, including FM, AM, SSB, ENB, as well as a variety of digital forms, including FSK, and MIMO.

“The TX-8/900M delivers a convenient way to streamline wireless system configurations,” noted James Stoffo, Chief Technology Officer, Radio Active Designs. “As a result of this consolidation, it enhances performance, simplifies operation, and saves on cost – all at the same time.”

Individual channel indicators on the TX-8 / 900M front panel show RF activity and amplifier faults. An antenna fault indicator warns of excessive antenna VSWR. Output power is selectable to 50, 100 or 250 mW, independent of input power level.

In addition, the TX-8 incorporates RF power regulation that insures constant, pre-determined output from IEM and RF PL devices. And, each of the TX-8’s inputs are outfitted with individual RF power switches.

The TX-8 offers modular design housed in a steel 1RU package engineered to handle the rigours of live applications. A built-in power supply provides exceptional reliability as well as clean operation. And, an intelligent rear-panel layout simplifies system connections and reduces installation time.
