Scientific Atlanta's traditional size taps are known for the excellent flexibility they give broadband video network operators, with a modular design that allows changing of board and cover with no need to remove tap housings from the cable. Similarly, face plates on two and four-way taps can be interchanged, which enables subscriber expansion without costly resplicing. Surge Gap Taps in the series also give operators peace of mind with the highest surge rating available today (6KV) for applications like 1GHz plant upgrades/extensions and switched telephony.
Surge-Gap Taps are available in all configurations offered within the Scientific Atlanta multimedia product family (Standard 2, 4, & 8 port, and Full-Profile Design) and are compatible with Scientific Atlanta's Power Distribution Unit (PDU). The Flexible Solutions Taps (FSTs) in this series also include optional plug-in Reverse Attenuators and Forward Inverse EQs to deliver greater system design flexibility.
Scientific Atlanta's traditional size taps are trusted by every major MSO, as well as by many small and mid-size network operators. Indeed, Surge Gap taps are designed to perform for a long time, even after multiple hits, with 6kV Combination Wave on the through ports and 6kV Ring Wave on the tap ports. Sealed and swaged extended F-ports deliver maximum protection against moisture ingress. And the taps' excellent return loss performance lessens reflected signals. Put it all together, and operators get a clean, clear signal, combined with the flexibility and security today's applications demand.
