EMC Regulatory Notices
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Part 15 Information: This device complies
with Part 15 of the FCC standard rules. Operation is subject to the following conditions:
This device may not cause harmful interference
This device must accept any interference received including interference that may cause
undesirable operations.
Delivery Damage Inspection
Carefully inspect the frame and exterior components to be sure that there has been no
shipping damage. Make sure all modules are seated correctly and have not detached
during shipment.
Factors Affecting Quality of Results
There are many factors affecting the quality of results when signals are transmitted from
a source to a destination.
Signal cables — Use only the best quality cables to avoid interference and
degraded signal quality and elevated noise levels.
Sockets and connectors of the sources and destinations — Use only the
highest quality, since "zero ohm" connection resistance is the target.
Connectors should also match the required impedance (75 ohm in
video) to minimize return loss.
Amplifying circuitry — Must have quality performance when the desired
end result is high linearity, low distortion, and low noise.
Distance between sources and destinations — Plays a major role in the final
result. For long distances (over 15 meters) between sources and
destinations, special measures should be taken to avoid high frequency
cable losses. These measures include using higher quality cables and/or
adding line cable equalizing amplifiers.
Interference from neighboring electrical appliances — These can have an
adverse affect on signal quality. Balanced audio lines are less prone to
interference, but unbalanced audio should be installed away from any
main power lines, electric motors, transmitters, etc. even when the
cables are shielded.
CAUTION!
Only an authorized Sierra Video technician can service these products. Any user who
makes changes or modifications to the unit without the expressed approval of the
manufacturer will void the warranty
Use the proper AC voltage to supply power.

Installation
Introduction
Installation procedures are similar for all frames covered under this manual. Exceptions, if
any, have been noted in each of the following paragraphs.
Rack Mounting
Carefully inspect the frame to ensure that there has been no shipping damage. Make
sure all shipping material is removed from the router frame.
Each of the frames described in this manual can be rack mounted in a standard 19" (RU)
EIA rack assembly and includes rack "ears" at the ends of the front of the frames. None
of the models require spacing above or below the unit for ventilation. If ample space
exists, a 1RU spacing gap is recommended.
To rack mount any of the frames, simply place the unit's rack ears against the rack rails
of the rack, and insert proper rack screws through each of the holes in the rack ears.
Always rack mount the unit prior to plugging into a power receptacle or attaching any
cables.
1RU Frame
The 1RU 801014 video frame is 8.5 inches deep. No rear support is needed. The frame
produces very little heat and can be installed adjacent to other equipment. The 1RU
frame can be installed in all but the most severe situations without allocating any rack
space for cooling.
The 1RU frame uses an external power supply. The supply has a 1 meter long output
cable with a 3 pin DIN receptacle on it. The DIN connector should be plugged in before
the power supply is connected to AC.
3RU Frame
The 3RU 801012, 801028, and 801017 frames are 8.5 inches deep. No rear support is
needed. The frames produce very little heat and can be installed adjacent to other
equipment. The 3RU frames can be installed in all but the most severe situations without
allocating any rack space for cooling.
If a dual supply is used, be sure the second supply is powered from a separate AC power
circuit.

AC Power Connection
Before connection of AC power to the #RU frames check the setting of the 115/230
switch. The switch as accessed by removing the front cover. Behind the right side door
retainer, you will see the switch. If set to the incorrect voltage, use a small flat blade
screwdriver to move the switch to the correct setting.
After connecting the AC, turn on the power switch, check for illumination of the power
status LED above the power switch.
Video Connections
There are two BNC connectors associated with the input of each video amplifier module.
This is called a “looping” input. This allows a signal connected to one of these connectors
to be available on the second connector.
Note:
If the second connector is unused it must be terminated with 75 ohms.
Video system interconnects are made by using 75 ohm transmission lines (coax cable).
The device driving the line has a “source” impedance of 75 ohms, the cable has a 75
ohm impedance and the end of the interconnect must be terminated with 75 ohms (see
note above).
The accuracy of the termination affects signal level. Use either a 1% or 0.1% termination.
Unused amplifier positions do not need a termination.
The 801012 and 801014 frames have ten separate outputs for each module. The 801028
frame has four outputs for each module. Only the outputs which are used need to be
terminated.

SERIES 10 DA
Audio Connections
The Series 10 audio distribution amplifier frame (801017) uses a terminal strip design
containing 6 pin removable connectors for input and output connections. Each 6 pin
section of the strip that is fixed to the rear of the frame mates with an un-pluggable
mating half to which the actual wires are connected. This 6 pin group is one balanced
stereo audio line.
On the strips with 6 connectors, each connector is configured as follows;
Left +

Note:
Be sure to be consistent with “+” and “-“ connections to maintain correct audio phase.
Mono modules use only the Right inputs and outputs on the 801017 frame.
Connections are silk-screened on the rear panel.
If the signal is balanced with no shield, omit the Ground connection.
If the signal is un-balanced, connect to the “+” and Ground. Leave the “_” pin open.

Video Modules
Introduction
Sierra Video makes a complete line of high performance 10 output video distribution
amplifiers for broadcast, production, and presentation applications.
Each of the frames in the Series 10 DAs use 10 output plug-in modules. Modules can be
loaded into frames can be different types. Frames only supply power and I/O
connections.
501011 Basic Video DA
The 501011 Basic Video DA is the SVS low noise, low distortion, 150 MHz bandwidth
1x10 plug-in DA module.
Circuit Description
The 501011 is a plug-in module. Refer to the 501011 schematic diagrams in the
schematic section of this manual.
The 501011 is powered by low voltage AC which comes into the module through the
edge connector. When dual supplies are ordered, the two supplies enter the 501011
separately and are paralleled after the AC to DC rectification. This provides total in-frame
isolation between the two supplies. U5 provides regulated +5VDC and U4 provides
regulated -5VDC. On the front edge of the 501011 separate LEDs indicate the presence
of the + and – 5 VDC levels.
Input video enters on the edge connector pin 2. The incoming signal’s shield enters on
pin 1 and is then connected directly to the circuit ground.
The 501011 employs a two stage gain process. First a current feedback op amp provides
the variable gain via the trim pot in its feedback loop. The gain is set by trim pot R28
located on the front of the 501011.
Next, there are two more of the same op amps each feeding the 75 Ohm source
terminated signals.

501519 Differential Input Video DA
The 501519 eliminates the effects of power line hum caused by circulating ground
currents in the coaxial cable shield. The differential input circuitry also rejects unwanted
common-mode signals induced by stray magnetic fields and electrostatic interference.
Circuit Description
The 501519 is a plug-in module. Refer to the 501519 schematic diagrams in the
schematic section of this manual.
The 501519 is powered by low voltage AC which comes into the module through the
edge connector. When dual supplies are ordered, the two supplies enter the 501519
separately and are paralleled after the AC to DC rectification. This provides total in-frame
isolation between the two supplies. The rectified DC is filtered by C21 and C20. U4
provides regulated +8VDC and U3 provides regulated -8VDC. On the front edge of the
501519 separate LEDs indicate the presence of the + and – 8VDC levels.
Input video enters on the edge connector pin 2. The incoming signal’s shield enters on
pin 1.
Both signal and shield are AC coupled to the amplifier (C2 and C3). R2 and R4 provides
a DC reference for the signal to ground. R1 and C1 bypass high frequency shield noise to
ground. Q1 through Q8 comprise a differential amplifier. Q2 and Q3 are each configured
as constant current sources of about 3.5 ma. Q5 and Q6 operate differentially. Common
mode, undesirable signals present no voltage across R22. The voltage difference
between the center conductor of the input and shield is the desired voltage. The voltage
across R22 will cause a differential current swing at the collectors of Q5 and Q6. Q4 and
Q7 are a differential input to single ended output current mirror. The signal at the collector
of Q4 is a current equal to the differential current at the collectors of Q5 and Q6. By
varying the resistive load at this point the voltage gain of the overall amplifier is set. R23
is a 15 turn potentiometer gain adjustment located on the front of the 501519.
U2 is a low frequency amplifier used to correct the overall DC of the 501519. The voltage
at the output of the module is compared to ground. The required correction signal
changes the bias of the current mirror via Q8.
The remainder of the circuit on the 501519 is a high quality 10 load video distribution
amplifier. The basic element is a 120MHz amplifier U1 followed by a current boosting
stage.
Q9 and Q10 are inside the gain determining feedback loop of U1. D10 and D11 provide
class AB operating bias for Q9 and Q10. Q9 and Q10 are 200MHz 500ma devices. They
provide a very low output impedance (about 0.1). R36 through R43 are each precision
75ohm resistors. Each drives a separate output line.

SERIES 10 DA
501019 Equalizing Video DA
The coaxial cable used in distributing video signals is not a perfect transmission medium.
For signals of primary importance, lengths of 15 meters or more should be equalized to
restore the higher frequency detail in the video signal and to preserve signal quality. The
adjustable equalization range of the 501019 is up to 300 meters of RG59.
Circuit Description
The 501019 is a plug-in module. Refer to the 501019 schematic diagrams in the
schematic section of this manual.
The 501019 is powered by low voltage AC which comes into the module through the
edge connector. When dual supplies are ordered, the two supplies enter the 501019
separately and are paralleled after the AC to DC rectification. This provides total in-frame
isolation between the two supplies. The rectified DC is filtered by C21 and C20. U4
provides regulated +8VDC and U3 provides regulated -8VDC. On the front edge of the
501019 separate LEDs indicate the presence of the + and – 8VDC levels.
Input video enters on the edge connector pin 2. The incoming signal’s shield enters on
pin 1.
Both the signal and shield are AC coupled to the amplifier (C2 and C3). R2 and R4
provides a DC reference for the signal to ground. R1 and C1 bypass high frequency
shield noise to ground. Q1 through Q8 comprise a differential amplifier. Q2 and Q3 are
each configured as constant current sources of about 3.5ma. Q5 and Q6 operate
differentially. Common mode, undesirable signals present no voltage across R22. The
voltage difference between the center conductor of the input and shield is the desired
voltage. This voltage across R22 will cause a differential current swing at the collectors of
Q5 and Q6. Q4 and Q7 are a differential input to single ended output current mirror. The
signal at the collector of Q4 is a current equal to the differential current at the collectors of
Q5 and Q6. By varying the resistive load at this point the voltage gain of the overall
amplifier is set. R23 is a 15 turn potentiometer gain adjustment located on the front of the
501019.
The network consisting of R14, R15, R16, R17, C7, C8, C9 and C10 is a four pole
equalizing network. The amount of effect the network is allowed to have on the overall
circuit is adjusted by R22. At one end the network is shorted out to itself and the input
circuit gain is flat with respect to frequency. At the other end of R22’s adjustment range
the network is connected across the emitters of Q5 and Q6. The frequency response of
the input circuit is then frequency dependent. This produces the desired response to
counteract the response loss of long lengths of input cable. The amount of cable the
501019 compensates for is continuously adjustable by the setting of R22.
U2 is a low frequency amplifier used to correct the overall DC of the 501019. The voltage
at the output of the module is compared to ground. The required correction signal
changes the bias of the current mirror via Q8.
The remainder of the circuit on the 501019 is a high quality 10 load video distribution
amplifier. The basic element is a 120MHz amplifier, U1, followed by a current boosting
stage.
Q9 and Q10 are inside the gain determining feedback loop of U1. D10 and D11 provide
class AB operating bias for Q9 and Q10. Q9 and Q10 are 200MHz 500ma devices. They
provide a very low output impedance (about 0.1 ohm). R36 through R43 are each
precision 75 ohm resistors. Each drives a separate output line.

501022 Pulse DA
The 501022 is a plug-in module specifically designed to drive 10 loads with 4V p-p
composite sync and similar drive pulses.
Circuit Description
The 501022 is a plug-in module. Refer to the 501022 schematic diagrams in the
schematic section of this manual.
The 501022 is powered by low voltage AC which comes into the module through the
edge connector. When dual power supplies are ordered, the two supplies enter the
501022 separately and are paralleled after the AC to DC rectification. This provides total
in frame isolation between the two supplies. The rectified DC is filtered by C8 and C9. U2
provides regulated +8VDC. U3 is an LM337, adjustable negative voltage regulator. The
adjustment input of U3 is connected to a well filtered sample of the raw input voltage. In
this way U3 provides filtering and current limit protection, but does not regulate to a
specific voltage. This results in a negative supply voltage that slowly follows changes in
the raw low voltage AC input. The result is about -19 to -14 volts at the output of U3. On
the front edge of the 501022 separate LEDs indicate the presence of the + and – VDC
levels.
Input video enters the 501022 on the edge connector pin 2. The incoming signal’s shield
enters the 501022 on pin 1 and is then connected directly to the circuit ground.
Q3 and Q4 clip signal levels over 6 volts peak to peak. This occurs only if the input
connection is accidentally unterminated. The basic element of the 501022 is a 120MHz
amplifier, U1, followed by a current boosting stage.
Q1 and Q2 are inside the gain determining feedback loop of U1. D1 and D2 provide class
AB operating bias for Q1 and Q2. Q1 and Q2 are 200MHz 500ma devices. They provide
a very low output impedance (about 0.1 ohm). R1 through R10 are each precision 75
ohm resistors. Each drives a separate output line.
The gain of the 501022 is set by U1’s feedback network. R19 is a 15 turn potentiometer
gain adjustment located on the front of the 501022.

Audio Modules
Introduction
The 501026 is a high performance fully differential distribution amplifier designed for
demanding applications. Using surface mounted components to increase density, each
board is capable of driving 10 separated outputs with user adjustable gain range of –6 dB
to +18 dB. The unit can be purchased optimized for mono or stereo use, jumper selected
600 ohm or High impedance inputs, and with either 600 ohm or low impedance outputs,
better than 110 dB dynamic range and 5 Hz to 150 KHz frequency response there are
very few audio devices available today which matches the flexibility and specifications of
the 501026.
Note:
Mono modules use only the Right inputs and outputs on the 801017 frame.
501026 Audio DA
Circuit Description
The circuit consists of 2 parts a differential input stage and a differential output capable of
supplying high output currents.
U1A (U4A) and associated components make up the input stage. The circuit has –6 dB of
gain, > 40K ohm input impedance, > 60 dB common mode rejection. Each input can also
be configured using a jumper to be 600 ohm input impedance is desired. The frequency
response is set by 100 pf capacitors and 10K ohm resistors and the high end (150 KHz)
and a unique DC restoration feedback circuit U1B (U4B) which sets the low frequency –3
dB point at well under 10 Hz without passing the audio signal direction through a
capacitor.
U1C (U4C) is a high current driver stage with a coarse and fine gain adjustment
available. U1D (U4D) is a high current driver stage which is an inverted copy of the
output of U1C (U4C). These combine to form the fully differential output which is
connected to all 10 outputs through isolation resistors. In the low output impedance
version, these resistors are 10 ohm resulting in less than 0.09 dB gain error when driving
any number of loads each of which is > 2K ohm. In the 600 ohm version, these resistors
are 300 ohms resulting in the perfect impedance match for driving extremely long line
requiring telephone line 600 ohm terminations.
