GPS splitter (1:2)

The GPS splitter unit (1:2) connects the the signal from one external antenna to up to two repeater units.

It is sometimes necessary to use a separate amplifier in conjunction with the splitter to ensure adequate transmission power to all the repeaters – if in doubt call or email FalTech for technical advice.

If the signal is to be transmitted to just one repeater (for example if a second device is to be installed later) the unused port should be fitted with a 50 ohm terminator.

Technical Details

  • Size: 110 x 143 x 28mm
  • Weight: 185g
  • Operating temperature: -35 to +85°C
  • Power supply not required *
  • Frequency Range: 1200-1700MHz
  • Impedance: 50Ω
  • Connector type: TNC sockets

* The splitter receives power through one of the two output ports.

A DC voltage is emitted by the attached repeater, via the coaxial feeder cable.

The voltage is passed through the splitter to the LNA in the outdoor antenna.

Application example


Waterproof (IP67) GPS splitter unit 1:2

IP67 Splitter 1 to 2 400x300

For environments where moisture and/or dust ingress is a problem, this IP67 version of the splitter is ideal.

The splitter specification is exactly the same as the standard unit shown above, the only differences are as follows:

  • Size: 200 x 119 x 39mm
  • Weight: 241g
  • Enclosure: IP67
  • Input connector: TNC-socket
  • Output connectors: 2 x -4dB TNC socket

Example – using a 1:2 splitter to distribute signal to two repeater units

Signal loss across the device is the same on each port, -4dB.

To connect an antenna to more than two repeaters there are other options such as the GPS splitter (1:5) and the combined amplifier/splitter unit (1:3).
