Seventeen models are avail- able with bandwidths ranging from 49-550 MHz to 49-1000 MHz, gains of either 30 dB or 43 dB, and push-pull or power doubling hybrid technology. All models have a return path bandwidth of 5-36 MHz and can be configured for either a passive (as shipped) or active return. When field configured to an active return the BIDA-ARP Series have a full gain of 20 dB. All models can be atten- uated over a range of 10 dB in the forward path and 18 dB in the return path. Gain and slope controls are located on the front panel for easy set-up and adjustment. Two -30 dB backmatched test points are provided to permit testing without interruption of service. In applications where input signals are too high or where greater cable equalization is necessary, the BIDA-ARP can be reconfigured by using plug-in fixed attenuators (forward and return) and cable slope equalizers (forward) to meet particu lar requirements. Push-pull and power doubling hybrid modules, hybrid IC modules enable the BIDA-ARP to operate at high output levels while retaining low distortion characteristics. The aluminum chassis is designed to provide excellent heat dissipation thus allowing operation at high ambient tempera tures with no degradation of performance or reliability. Features • Provides Two-Way Capability with an Active or Passive Return Path Set by Field-Changeable Jumpers. • Hybrid IC Circuitry for High Output with Low Distortion. • Front Panel Gain and Slope Controls for Easy Adjustments. • Sockets for Hybrid IC to Make a Hybrid IC Change in the Field. • Forward Path Input-Side Plug-In Fixed Attenuator and Cable Equalizer for Optimum Performance. • Return Path Output-Side Fixed Attenuator for Optimum Performance. • Externally Accessible Test Points Permit In-Service Testing. • Exceeds FCC Specs for Both Conducted and Radiated Interference at Full Output Level. • External “UL Listed” Power Transformer. ©2014 Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc.

BIDA Series 3 Instruction Manual Section 1 — General & Safety Instructions The STOP sign symbol is intended to alert you to the presence of REQUIRED operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions that if not followed, may result in product failure or destruction. The YIELD sign symbol is intended to alert you to the presence of RECOMMENDED operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions. The LIGHTNING flash symbol is intended to alert you to the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electrical shock. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE COVER FROM THIS UNIT. NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL. WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE NOTE TO CATV SYSTEM INSTALLER This reminder is provided to call the CATV System Installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical. Safety Instructions YOU SHOULD ALWAYS FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS TO HELP ENSURE AGAINST INJURY TO YOURSELF AND DAMAGE TO YOUR EQUIPMENT. å Elevated Operating Ambient - If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature. å Reduced Air Flow - Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised. å Mechanical Loading - Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading. å Circuit Overloading - Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of the circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern. å Reliable Earthing - Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connec tions other than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g. use of power strips). å Read all safety and operating instructions before you operate the unit. å Retain all safety and operating instructions for future reference. å Heed all warnings on the unit and in the safety and operating instructions. 4 BIDA Series Instruction Manual Safety Instructions - continued å Follow all installation, operating, and use instructions. å Unplug the unit from the AC power outlet before cleaning. Use only a damp cloth for cleaning the exterior of the unit. å Do not use accessories or attachments not recommended by Blonder Tongue, as they may cause hazards, and will void the warranty. å Do not operate the unit in high-humidity areas, or expose it to water or moisture. å Do not place the unit on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The unit may fall, causing serious personal injury and damage to the unit. å Do not block or cover slots and openings in the unit. These are provided for ventilation and protection from overheating. Never place the unit near or over a radiator or heat register. Do not place the unit in an enclosure such as a cabinet without proper ventilation. Do not mount equip ment in the rack space directly above or below the unit. å Operate the unit using only the type of power source indicated on the marking label. Unplug the unit power cord by gripping the plug, not the cord. å The unit is equipped with a three-wire ground-type plug. This plug will fit only into a ground-type power outlet. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact an electrician to replace the outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the ground-type plug. å Route power supply cords so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit. å Be sure that the outdoor components of the antenna system are grounded in accordance with local, federal, and National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements. Pay special attention to NEC Sections 810 and 820. See the example shown in the following diagram: å We strongly recommend using an outlet that contains surge suppression or ground fault protection. For added protection during a lightning storm, or when the unit is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the lines between the unit and the antenna. This will prevent damage caused by lightning or power line surges. å Do not locate the antenna near overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing the antenna, take extreme care to avoid touching such power lines or circuits, as contact with them can be fatal. å Do not overload wall outlets or extension cords, as this can result in a risk of fire or electrical shock. å Never insert objects of any kind into the unit through openings, as the objects may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts. This could cause fire or electrical shock. å Do not attempt to service the unit yourself, as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage and will void the warranty. Refer all servicing to authorized service personnel. å Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and refer servicing to authorized service personnel whenever the following occurs: o The power supply cord or plug is damaged; o Liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the unit; o The unit has been exposed to rain or water; o The unit has been dropped or the chassis has been damaged; o The unit exhibits a distinct change in performance. å When replacement parts are required, ensure that the service technician uses replacement parts specified by Blonder Tongue. Unauthorized substitutions may damage the unit or cause electrical shock or fire, and will void the warranty. å Upon completion of any service or repair to the unit, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to ensure that the unit is in proper operating condition.
