TWIN TMA 700H/850


Designed to be deployed in co-located 700 and 850MHz networks the Kaelus TMA2125 provides gain in the 700H uplink and in the 850MHz uplink, using independent LNAs per band and per channel.


  • Improved base station sensitivity through excellent noise figure performance and linearity
  • AISG 2.0 compatible, full software upgradable using AISG “personality” upload
  • Suitable for CDMA and LTE signals
  • Rejection of the North American public safety band rejection allows co-location
  • AISG OOK + DC output to the antenna port of channel 1
  • AISG OUT connector disabled when AISG device (SBT equipped antenna) present on Port 3 +R1/+R1
  • Fixed or Variable Gain options available.
  • Standard Mount or Low wind load, cell facing options available

power supply and alarm (current window alarm mode, default)
Current window alarm mode (CWA) is the default operating mode and can be configured to specific customer requirements. The TMA2125F0xV4 is configured so that both channels are independently powered and monitored via their respective BTS port, 1 or 2. The BTS port sinks additional current to indicate an alarm state in its uplink path. Normal operating and alarm current values are configured independently via a field-loadable personality file. Please contact Kaelus for more information.
DC supply voltage+8.5 to +18V DC, case is DC ground
DC supplyEach BTS port powered individually
DC supply current, normal mode200mA per port typical
DC supply current, alarm mode300mA per port typical
aisg mode of operation (auto selected on valid aisg 2.0 frames)
AISG signals can be applied to port 1 or port 2. The TMA unit switches to AISG mode when valid frames are detected on either port 1 or 2. All LNAs take DC power from the port with the AISG frames or, if DC is present on both ports, power will be supplied equally between the ports. Each LNA is controlled uniquely by its sub-unit number.

antenna aisg ook + dc
When DC is applied to the TMA2125F0xV4-1 it is quickly switched through to port 3. If an over-current condition is detected, DC & AISG are disconnected from port 3. If DC remains connected to the load at port 3, DC and AISG are disconnected from the AISG OUT 8 pin connector. If DC is disconnected from port 3, DC and AISG are enabled at the AISG OUT 8 pin connector. If a short circuit is detected at the AISG OUT 8 pin connector, DC and AISG are disabled.
