8PPXX271E Series
Band IV/V (UHF) PeakPower+TM 30kW bandpass filter

The RFS 8PPXX271E is designed for global filtering applications associated with DTV television transmission. It is an 8-pole liquid-cooled filter incorporating dual cross-couplings. The 8-pole filter allows for FCC tightening of emission mask for ATSC 3.0 in the future.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Meet FCC mask requirements plus extra protection for adjacent channels.
  • Very compact for easy integration into equipment.
  • Lowest insertion loss and highest power rating for its size/class.
  • Tunable over UHF band (470 – 704 MHz).
  • Adjustable bandwidth, available for 6  and 8 MHz channels for global applications.
  • External coupling adjustment simplifies tuning.
  • All data presented upon filed measured results.
