Miniature, passive designs, requiring no power, the LEN SDI splitters are suitable for such applications as additional monitor feeds say in remote camera locations, and in situations where size and weight are critical factors, such as racing cars, bikes and other sporting and research applications. Offering a broadcast-quality signal, they are useful in both permanent and temporary installations. They may used freestanding and have fixing screws for mounting through panels. An accessory panel is also available to mount eight splitters in 1U of rack space.
Three models are available: The LSDS01 is for use with SD SDI video, the LHDS01 may be used with SD or HD SDI signals while the L3GS01 may used with SD, HD or 3G SDI. Each is built in an ABS enclosure fitted with three female BNC connectors.
Two or more splitters can be used in series to provide up to eight individual feeds over short distances. Actual distance dependant on original signal strength and cable quality.
Note 1: Worst case, both outputs terminated. 2: Maximum attenuation. 3: Between output ports. 4: Depends on cable type; 20% reduction compared to a free cable run.
Dimensions: 45 x 30 x 15(l x w x h)mm, excluding connectors. Weight: 30g.
To achieve the specified performance the input must be fed with a source impedance of 75 ohms and both outputs must be terminated with 75 ohms. Therefore, if an output cable is not present, a 75 ohm termination should be fitted. This should be specified to operate over the full SDI bandwidth in use.
Optional accessories: The LMPS02 rack frame is a 1U 19-inch panel, finished in black, punched to take eight splitters mounted from the rear by means of the mounting screws, the BNC connectors facing out of the rack. If it is desired to have the connectors facing into the rack, the splitters may be reversed, revealing the splitter modules which will protrude 15mm from the surface of the panel.
