Adjust Settings on the AXT Series Antenna Distributor

In the properites panel for the AXT series antenna distributor, you can select the band filter, adjust the RF gain, and configure the antenna ports.

  1. To match the antenna to the tuning band of the receivers, select the band in the Band field.
  2. To extend the supported frequency range across all four bands, in the Band field, select Wideband.
  3. To configure the antenna ports, select one of the following options in the Antenna Cascade field:
    • Automatic: The ports will activate when a connected receiver or Spectrum Manager supplies 12-15 VDC to the port.
    • Always On: The ports are continuously active, independent of voltage applied. Use this mode when connecting components that do not supply DC voltage to their antennas.
  4. To maintain consistent levels and prevent overload, you can make RF gain adjustments in the RF Gain field. Select values in one of the following ranges depending on the connection status of the cascade ports: 
    • Cascade ports connected: Adjustment range = -15 dB to 0 dB
    • Cascade ports not connected: Adjustment range = -12 dB to +3 dB
  5. To define whether DC power is supplied to antennas, select one of the following options in the Antenna Power field:
    • ON: The antenna ports supply 12-15 V DC to power active antennas.
    • OFF: No DC power. Use with passive (non-powered) antennas.
