HOLLAND GHS-2 2-way 1 GHz Coaxial Cable TV Antenna Signal Splitter
Why Use an Old splitter to hook up that 2nd TV, when you can use this GHS Series 1 GHz 2-way Splitter? State-of-the-art product lines designed and tested using the most current procedures assures success in hooking up New HDTV Sets with a Low intermodulation design and optimized return band prevents high cable modem signals from affecting forward band transmission. Therefore, the GHS-2 series digital splitter is ideal for present and future multimedia applications including video, telephony, and transmission sensitive digital signals such as QPSK and QAM data. New performance features have been incorporated to make both series compatible with the latest digital and return path requirements. Ideal for digital and cable modem applications with high surge resistance and unique plating for unmatched corrosion resistance to withstand harsh environments.
This is a great Splitter for Inside and Outside Installation of the Home or Office. Its Double Thick Plated Housing is Soldered Closed and Sealed from the Environment, as well as Transient and Spike Voltage Resistant. The Finish Doesn't change colors as much as the Chemically Treated Housings do when subjected to Weather. It will pass Forward and Return signals; making it perfect for Splitting Cable TV with High-Speed Internet Connection Signals. The Voltage Protection also makes it suitable for splitting HD TV Antenna Signals as well. The Flat "F" Connector ends means that the connection to the RG coaxial cable you use (RG-6 or RG-11) is solid, secure and doesn't slip or back off after tightened with appropriate force (most Coaxial Cable Manufacturers specify in inch/pounds). When making RG-6 or RG-11 cable connections outside, a weather boot covering and some sort of Silicone compound are highly recommended.
2-Way Splitters are typically the Part you would use to take One (1) cable Feed and "Split" it into Two (2) in order to Provide Signal to 2 Independant Devices, or One More Cables to complete the Run(s) to their Final Destination(s). Please be Sure to Select the Appropriate Splitter not just By Manufacturer and Price. But Rather, Consider the Specifics of Bandwidth, Packaging (Indoor vs. Outdoor), Loss, Powering Requirements Up/Down-Stream and the Overall Needs of the Final System You Wish to Create...
If you are adding a splitter to an existing Cable TV or Antenna feed, you may need to compensate for the loss that you are about to introduce. The gain of a Line Amplifier should be selected to zero out the loss that follows it. In other words, if you have fifty feet of cable and a two-way splitter, then a 10 db amplifier will be fine. Conversely, if you have an eight-way splitter and hundreds of feet of cable, you will need an amplifier with a higher gain. Just as in the case of a Pre-Amplifier, however, bigger is not always better.
Commensurate with Coaxial Cable TV Antenna Splitter Installation, you want to Ground your Cable TV or HDTV Antenna Coaxial Cable System Outside before bringing the TV Cable Inside. This way, Lightning Strikes and Power Surges have an opportunity to arrest before reaching your TV and Entertainment Electronics. The Integral Grounding Block designed onto every Outdoor Use Compatible RF Signal Splitter we sell will effectively convey this unwanted Electrical Energy to a Ground Rod via a Copper Ground Wire that you Install (not included). Consult your Local Building Code and NEC for guidance to Properly Grounding your HD TV Antenna, Cable TV, WI-FI, Wireless Internet, Business Band, CB or Amateur Radio Antenna Installation.
