This super compact line amplifier works with power doubler output stage to achieve the best performance. For the highest level compatibility with existing systems this type is orderable with either COMTECH standard or JXP standard and with either local or remote powering. The MDA836 has a module place for the RIB module - this takes the opportunity for remote controlling an ingress control switch without return path communication.
In normal configuration 2 attenuator and 2 equalizer modules can be plugged. According to demand there is a possibility to place 2 interstage modules in the forward path and 1 return path module. In these module places jumpers can be found in default configuration. You have to remove these jumpers before plug the upon mentioned 3 modules (2 interstage and 1 return path) in.
