TA-500 Wired Paging Booster Amplifier

Wired amplifier for boosting the signal and coverage area of an in-house paging transmitter

  • Easy BNC connection to a transmitter’s antenna port
  • Powerful 5 watt output

Product Description

The Apollo TA500 wired amplifer is designed to quickly and easily extend the coverage area of any in-house paging transmitter. Deployment is as simple as connecting the TA500 to the antenna output of a transmitter, and resuming paging as usual. The TA500 requires no programming.

Features of the TA500 include:

  • Powerful 5 watt output, roughly equivalent to coverage of 2-1/2 miles in unobstructed open space;
  • A rugged, ultra-compact, machined alumninum housing — about the size of two decks of cards;
  • UHF operation, with a single TA500 covering all frequencies in the UHF band.

The TA500 integrates seamlessly with all Apollo transmitter models, and is especially well-suited for models with 1/2 watt or less of onboard output power, including all TE series desktop transmitters. Connection between the transmitter’s antenna output and the TA500 is with a standard BNC patch cable. Because it adheres to a standard signal amplifier design, the TA500 is also compatible with other in-house paging transmitters.

When ordering, choose any model with an operating range that matches the frequency range of the source transmitter, and choose with or without the optional 3-foot BNC patch cable. The TA500 is currently available in UHF only.
