The HPH-860AD has been specifically designed to produce the highest quality pictures at extremely low inputs while maintaining stable output levels with its sync tip AGC circuit. High input capability and SAW filtering provide the unit with the ability to process a single cable channel even in the presence of an adjacent channel. High frequency Phase Locked Loop oscillators allow the unit to meet the frequency offset and stability requirements of FCC Docket 21006. Features • Microprocessor controlled • High output : 60 dBmV, 57 dBmV minimum • SAW filtered • Spurious outputs down >-60 dB • Adjacent channel rejection of -60 dBc • Superior low noise circuitry • Sync tip AGC for precise signal regulation • BTSC stereo signal compatible • 44/45.75 MHz IF loop-thru • Output capability to 860 MHz • Five year limited warranty Specifications Input Frequency Range: Input Channels: 54 to 806 MHz CATV channels 2 to 125 Off-air channels 2 to 69 Output Frequency Range: Output Channels: Carrier to Noise Ratio: Noise Figure: In-band Video Carrier Stability: 57 dBmV min.

F+ and F- are in 12.5 KHz increments. Installation Procedure 1. Connect the I.F. jumper from the I.F. output to the I.F. input on the HPH-860AD rear panel. 2. Insert power plug into a surge protected 90 - 260 VAC outlet. Observe the lit POWER LED light indicating power is on. 3. Connect a spectrum analyzer or field strength meter to the processor RF OUT port. 4. Connect a RF signal source to RF IN port. Signal level should be ~5 – 25 dBmV for Analog and 0 – 25 dBmV for Digital. Set the switch on the rear of the unit to Digital or Analog depending on what the desired input format may be. 5. Set the HPH-860AD desired input channel Mode and Number. (see page 5) 6. Set the HPH-860AD desired output channel Mode and Number. (see page 5) 7. Turn the OUTPUT LEVEL adjustment on the front panel of the processor to set the desired output level. 8. Turn the AURAL CARRIER adjustment to set the audio carrier 12 - 17 dB below the video carrier. (For Analog signals only) 9. Remove the analyzer or field strength meter from the processor RF OUT port. 10. Connect the processor RF OUT port to a television/monitor. (Make sure to use the proper size attenuator between the processor and the television/monitor in order to avoid overdriving the television/monitor.) ( For Digital signals an ATSC receiver may need to be used between HPH-860AD and the TV/Monitor) 11. Verify that the television/monitor picture is of good quality for viewing. 12. Remove the television/monitor and attenuator from the processor RF OUT port. 13. Connect the processor RF OUT port to the RF input of the head-end system.
