Q: What is the power spec. of
A: Input: 120V, 60Hz,
18.5W; Output: 12VDC, 1A
Q: Can I use a 24VAC 1AMP
supply with APW-1000, since the unit has a regulator?
A: The built-in switching power
regulator of APW-1000 is a DC regulator, therefore you must adopt the 24VDC 1AMP
power supply as the regulator can only take the DC power supply. And the input
voltage should be between 12VDC and 28VDC as stated in the installation guide.
Q: Does the power cable comes
with APW-1000 has bare wire at the end? And does it support a screw down
A: Yes, you can use a power supplies
with the screw terminal block to connect to the bare wire side of the power
cable that comes with the amplifier.
Q: Will both 12VDC 500mA and
24VDC 1A with screw terminal block work on APW-1000?
A: Yes, both all work fine, but it is
indeed 24VDC with 1 amp shall give you the most benefit of it.
Q: What kind of patch cable to
use on Trango M5830-AP which has reverse polarity SMA
A: You will need a reverse polarity to
Trango system, and normal polarity to APW-1000.
Q: Are both SMA
ports of APW-1000 male and/or female with outside
A: Both "RF in" and "RF out" connector
located on APW-1000 are female connector, therefore, you'll need male connector
with outside thread to connect to amplifier.
Q: What is the dBm of APW-1000?
And how do I increase it?
A: APW-1000 provides roughly +30dBm.
Change to high gain antenna will certainly increase the dBm. For example, if
combine APW-1000 with an 18 dBi antenna, you will be able to get a total 48
Q: Which RF-Link product that
APW-1000 works with?
A: APW-1000 works with AVS-5808 to
extend transmission range. It also works with RF-Link's 5.8GHz wireless RF
module as part of our OEM offering.
Q: Does APW-1000 amplify all RF
bands: VHF, low and high FM and four CATV bands?
A: No, it does
APW-1000 compatible with HDTV signal?
A: No. it does
Q: Can I take
out the board from APW-1000 and place it in a plastic box instead of the metal
box that come with it? And by doing so, will it affect any of its
A: It is all right to place the
APW-1000 board inside a plastic box. However, by doing so, the customer must pay
attention to the issue of heat ventilation as APW-1000 will be generating a
great deal of heat. And generally speaking, putting APW-1000 board in a plastic
box will do very little to affect its performance as long as the antenna is
exposed outside the box. Please note, this action may revoke the product
