RF-G1179 Bidirectional Mini Drop Amplifier

I just purchased this product and it cleared up all my digital cable problems.

The input to my amplifier is the cable line from the pole.  However, this is outside - so I have the ac adapter plugged into an outside socket.  I would prefer to have minimal plugs/wires outside if possible due to rain and snow.

I saw that some motorola amplifiers can use a remote power source - power supply/ power inserter inside the house and then the power runs through the coax cable. 

Does the rocketfish amplifier also have this capability?  It has the output1/pwr in and I was wondering if this is for remote power?

Thanks in advance!

Hello bhurdle,

 

It will depend on the device that you have connected to the "Out1/PWR IN" port, but yes it can be powered via coax from an external source. The following note is from the manual regarding your question:

 

"Note: This amplifier can be powered by DC current provided through the coaxial cable connection of certain components; however, not all components provide this DC current. If you do not receive power from your component, it will be necessary to power the amplifier with the included AC adapter."

 

Regards,
Zac
