Conway, SC – May 11, 2007 4Cable TV, Inc. has today introduced the first in a line of replacement 1 GHz CATV amplifier modules that utilize the company’s proprietary PowerMiser™ low-current technology. The PowerMiser™ technology reduces the current requirements for a CATV module by approximately 50% over existing products.
Current 1 GHz Line Extenders draw approximately 950 mA, but an equalivlent PowerMiser™ Line Extender will draw only 460 mA, while maintaining distortions in the mid to high 70s. This reduced current equates into an operational savings in the cost of electricity, cooler amplifier operation for higher reliability, fewer power supplies and longer standby times from standby power supplies. PowerMiser™modules are under development for all amplifier platforms currently used in the industry.
Replacement PowerMiser™ modules are available now:
- 4CLE1000 for the Magnavox/Philips 6LE series of line extenders;
- 4CSF-1039 for the CCor SF-739 Mini Trunk;
- 4CE-10XX for the CCor E-7 series of line extenders.
Pricing is dependant on options such as AGC, but will be in the low to high $200.00 range.
4Cable TV is in the process of preparing and filing a number of patent applications for the PowerMiser™ technology.
4Cable TV, Inc. was formed in May of 2006 by two Industry veterans, Steven K. Richey and Andrew F. Staniak, who have over 86 years of CATV combined experience. The company previously acquired the product line of Resources Electronics, Ltd. and dB-tronics, Inc. and moved to Conway in August of 2006. From its location in Conway, 4Cable TV has provided equipment to CATV systems all over the world. As the PowerMiser™ technology is adopted by the Cable TV Industry up to 25 new high-tech jobs will be created in Horry County.
