The Maxtron RC-5400 is a small, low-cost, 1x4 SD/HD (dual-rate) re-clocking distribution amplifier featuring four separately buffered HD/SD-SDI outputs. The RC-5400 provides automatic input cable equalization up to175 meters at 1.45GHz. Output #1 is failsafe protected using a dry-contact 3GHz relay to provide signal passthrough in case of power failure.
An included adaptive equalizer measures the amplitude of the the signal applied to the RC-5400 and applies equalization based upon this attenuated level. After the level has be compensated, the data is written into hardware registers and read out with a stable clock. Two of the major specifications for a reclocker are it's jitter tolerance -- how much jitter can there be on the input, and the amount of residual jitter -- how much jitter gets through to the output. The jitter tolerance for the RC-5400 is >6UI and the residual jitter at the output is <0.05 UI (typical) using color bars.
Powered by standard 5V wall mounted power supply (provided), and protected with automatic reset fuses,these units incorporate built-in power surge and transit protection. All Maxtron products are RoHS and Green compliant.
