GPS splitter (1:5)

With a GPS Signal Splitter, the signal from one external antenna can be distributed to up to five repeater units.

  • Sometimes advisable to use a separate amplifier with the splitter to overcome signal losses through attenuation.
  • Upgrading to a lower-loss cable may also be enough – if in doubt call or email FalTech for technical advice.
  • Spare/unused ports should be fitted with a 50 ohm terminator.
  • One port passes DC voltage from repeater to GPS antenna, to provide power for 35dB LNA (-4dB signal loss).
  • The other four ports are DC-blocked (-12dB signal loss).

Application example

Waterproof (IP67) GPS 1:5 splitter unit

IP67 Splitter 1 to 5 400x300For 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:
  • 1 x -4dB with DC passthrough
  • 4 x -12dB DC blocked

Using a splitter to distribute signal to up to five repeaters

  • One port inserts -4dB loss with DC passthrough
  • Four ports insert -12dB loss, DC blocked
