8PPXX322E Series
Band IV/V (UHF) PeakPower+TM 60kW bandpass filter

The RFS 8PPXX322E is designed for global filtering applications associated with DTV television transmission. It is an 8-pole fan-cooled filter incorporating two cross-couplings. The 8-pole filter allows for FCC tightening of emission mask for ATSC 3.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Meets 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 – 638 MHz).
  • External coupling adjustment simplifies tuning.
  • All data presented based on measured results.

Notes

  • Note 1. Other out-of-band emissions masks upon request
  • Note 2. Refer to Graph 2 for required environmental conditions (ambient temperature). Linear interpolation can be used to determine power rating at frequencies between 473MHz  and 635 MHz.
