      The BIDA 5900 Series with Active Return Path is a completely self-contained broadband indoor distribution amplifier designed for CATV and SMATV signal distribution systems that use a cable drop as a signal source.

      Push-pull and power-doubling hybrid amplifier technologies are available for the BIDA 5900 Series with RF bandwidths ranging from 54-860/1000 MHz with 30 or 43 dB gains.

      All BIDA 5900 models have a return path bandwidth of 5-42 MHz and can be configured for either a passive (factory default) or integrated active return. When field configured to an active return, the BIDA 5900 Series have a full gain of 20 dB. All models can be attenuated over a range of 10 dB in the forward path and 18 dB in the return path. Gain and slope controls are located on the front panel for easy set-up and adjustment. Two -30 dB back-matched test points are provided to permit testing without interruption of service.

      The aluminum chassis is designed to provide excellent heat dissipation thus allowing operation at high ambient temperatures with no degradation of performance or reliability
