HOW a Link Amplifier Works

  • It takes a 9V power output from either
    • the RF2 output from the sky box
    • or an external power adaptor
  • It amplifies the signal strength of the sky box output (10dB gain)
  • Allows the return signal from the sky eye to pass back to the sky box
  • It can operate up to 2 sky eyes

ADVANTAGES of Labgear 2 Way TV Link Amplifier

  • In conjuction with a sky eye it allows the remote operation of the sky box - from up to 2 locations
  • Normally operates very well
  • While splitting the signal it also amplifies it
  • Cheaper than Distrbiution Amplifers
  • It is neat and compact and does not need to be plugged in

DISADVANTAGES of Labgear 2 Way TV Link Amplifier

  • They do not give the same dB gain as Distrbiution Amplifers - an issue with long cable runs or where cable / joins are of poor quality
  • If you want to feed output to more than 4 rooms it is best to power the link amplifier with an external power source - and a Distrbiution Amplifers would be both cheaper and better in such circumstances
  • Used in conjunction with sky eyes which while being very handy they are also extremely sensitive and prone to stop working for a range of reasons such as cable length being too long, bad connection, low quality splitter
