The Model OTPN-MDN-870 Fiber Optic Mini Digital Node (MDN) provides CATV headend operators with a unique node featuring an extensive array of features, small size and low-cost. The MDN is fully compatible with Olson’s line of forward path transmitters and return path receivers. The MDN provides an output of +38dBmV of RF over the entire optical input range, allowing multiple RF splits without the use of an external RF amplifier. The Mini Digital Node is unique because it operates over a ultra-wide optical input range of -8dBm to +2.0dBm without degrading performance. A built-in LCD display and digital control buttons allow the operator to accurately set the tilt and RF output levels to ensure quality of service. The unit remembers specific settings even if power is lost. The OTPN-MDN-870 can be ordered either with or without a return path module.
