INTRODUCTION
This bulletin contains installation instructions for the video amplifier hub
(model SDM16VAB) supplied by Square D.
RECOMMENDED PRE–WIRE SCHEMES
Structured wiring cables run from the wall boxes in the various rooms of the
house directly to the structured wiring location (called home run wiring).
Two types of wire are used for communication and entertainment: CAT-5,
made up of 4-UTP (unshielded twisted pairs), and RG-6 coaxial. CAT-5
wires handle data for up to four telephone lines. CAT-5 wires can have two
to four unshielded twisted pairs. Square D recommends four pairs. RG-6
coaxial wires handle television (antenna or cable), satellite dish, cable
modem, or AV modulator signals.
See Table 1 for the recommended wiring schemes. These wires run from
the enclosure to the locations indicated in the table.

Video Amplifier Hub
Bulletin No. 40273-440-01
March 2001
VIDEO AMPLIFIER HUB
The video amplifier hub (model SDM16VAB) distributes community
antenna television (CATV) or antenna signals to six televisions. The hub
has four standard outputs up to 75 ft (23 m) and two long outputs up to
150 ft (46 m). The bi-directional amplifier (54–806 MHz) has 5–42 MHz
reverse channel capability for cable modems, pay-per-view, and
interactive cable. See Figure 1.

The video amplifier hub works like a zero-loss splitter. The signals that are
put on the antenna or CATV input will appear on the outputs with about
1 dB of gain for short outputs and about 4 dB of gain for long outputs.
The hub is compatible with NTSC and future HDTV signals.
For typical installation, see Figure 2.

VIDEO AMPLIFIER HUB INSTALLATION
To install the video amplifier hub module, follow steps 1–3. See Figure 3
for all the steps.
1. Using the hook on the back of the module, hang the module on the
enclosure grid.
2. Swing the module into place, so that the back of the module is flat
against the enclosure grid.
3. Push the button on the right side of the module to lock the module into
the enclosure grid.

Adding a Front Door Camera
Bulletin No. 40273-440-01
March 2001
ADDING A FRONT DOOR CAMERA
A camera channel can be added to the video amplifier hub using the
channel injector (model SDM11VMH) and the video camera (model
SDM2VC). The channel injector adds the camera channel to the existing
off-air channels and the video amplifier hub distributes the channel to all
the outputs. See Figure 4.
