TRIPLEXER 700/850/1900-AWS-WCS

Designed to combine 700, 850, and 1900 / AWS / WCS technologies, the Kaelus TBC0042 saves significant capital and operational expenses by limiting feeder runs, and components needed on the tower. Available in an outdoor package the TBC0042 has the following features:


  • Combines 700, 850 and 1900 / AWS / WCS bands
  • Very low insertion loss
  • Designed for low passive intermodulation
  • DC/AISG bypass field settable
  • Wall or pole mounting
  • AWS 3 & 4 ready.

dc / aisg
A field selectable DC/AISG path is achieved via mechanical links on a IEC60130-9, 8-pin female connector (see mechanical diagram). It is Kaelus’s recommendation that due to AISG link budget reasons that a maximum of 2 DC/AISG paths are activated simultaneously without active repeating of the AISG signal
Passband 0 - 3MHz
Insertion loss, single DC/AISG pass 1dB maximum
Return loss, single DC/AISG pass 12dB minimum
Insertion loss, two DC/AISG pass 4.5dB typical
Return loss, two DC/AISG pass 9dB typical
Input voltage range ± 31V
DC current rating 2A continuous, 4A peak
