Introduction

JLX-HSG Housing
The housing, model JLX-HSG, is designed for optimum heat dissipation. It includes separate RF and weather gaskets between housing halves for efficient shielding and weather protection. Two clamp assemblies are provided on top of the housing for strand mounting. Additional tapped holes are provided at the rear of the housing for the installation of auxiliary surface mounting brackets. The RF input and output ports are at the ends of the housing. Two test apertures in the housing cover provide access to RF input and output test points on the amplifier module without having to open the housing. These apertures are sealed by threaded plugs when not in use.

Amplifier Module
The amplifier module is secured to the housing by four spring loaded captive bolts. The module cover has access holes for the forward amplifier GAIN and SLOPE controls, INPUT TEST point (forward input/return output), OUTPUT TEST point, B+(24 Vdc) test point, and 60 Vac test point. Access holes in the amplifier module allow you to tighten the terminal screws on the center conductors of the input and output coaxial cables without removing the module from the housing. Use a screwdriver with an insulated shaft, if 60 Vac is present on the cable. The amplifier module is shipped from the factory with diplex filter DF1-SS in models JLX--750P/LC/SS or diplex filter DF1-SS/40 in models JLX--750P/LC/40. The amplifier is furnished from the factory with wire jumpers inserted in the receptacles for the cable equalizer, model EQ-750- and attenuator JXP-A. The amplifier module comes equipped with XO-36 plug-in surge arrestors at the input and output. These protect against voltage transients. The plug-in slope control board provides a means for correcting for cable slope over the forward bandpass. The response corrector is used to correct overall flatness. Adjustments can be made in the low, medium, or high bands.

Options
The CTF-JLX-750 is a plug-in option which manually compensates for signal level changes in a feederline due to temperature changes. This unit manually senses temperature and changes the insertion loss and slope to compensate for expected changes in cable attenuation. The insertion loss of this unit is approximately 3.5 dB at room temperature. This option is not used when the MB-ACB/ is installed. The block diagram in Figure 11 illustrates the functional interconnection of all components and subassemblies.

JLX--750P/LC/ Installation Manual

Introduction

Figure 11 Block diagram of the JLX--750P/LC/ line extender

The plug-in attenuator, model JXP-A is used to reduce the gain of the unit, and complements the gain control of the amplifier. The plug-in 5 A circuit breaker, model CBJ-5, or the CFJ-7A fuse is a user option inserted in the amplifier module if the 60 Vac is to be passed through to the output of the module. The forward cable equalizer, Model EQ-750-, is used to compensate for cable attenuation changes with frequency in the forward signal path. Equalizers are available in 2 dB increments from 2 to 22 dB. Automatic gain control can be added by installing the MB-ACB/ automatic control board. When the MB-ACB/ is installed, the CTF-JLX-750 is not used. The MB-ACB/ is tuned to a pilot channel and automatically adjusts gain to maintain a constant output level. Two-way service can be implemented by installing the RA-KIT return amplifier kit. The return amplifier is used to amplify the return signal. Included in the return amplifier kit is a selection of return equalizers, model SEE--. These are used to compensate for cable attenuation changes with frequency in the return spectrum. A hybrid gain block and two JXP-ZX jumpers are also included. Not all items in the kit will be required. Mounted to the bottom of the amplifier module is a power supply component board. The power supply component board contains a bridge rectifier and a switching voltage regulator. The power supply dc output voltage is factory preset for + 24 Vdc and may be measured at the + 24 Vdc test point. Although a voltage adjustment potentiometer is provided, adjustment is not normally required. The power supply can operate into a short circuit indefinitely without sustaining damage.

Bench Testing

Bench Testing
We recommend that you test the JLX--750P/LC/ on the bench to assure that the unit meets all requirements before installation. These tests are made with the line extender configured as it is shipped from the factory, that is, with jumpers in place of optional accessories.

Test Equipment Required


The following bench test equipment capable of accurate sweep measurements between 5 and 750 MHz is required for testing the JLX-7-750P/LC.
n n n n n n n

Sweep generator, with marker generator Oscilloscope Coaxial switcher Variable attenuators Power Inserter, model SSP-PI or equal 60 V power supply Length of 0.500-inch, gas-injected foam-dielectric cable with 8 dB of attenuation at 750 MHz (Comma/Scope PIII 75-500CA or equal) Two F59/cable entry adapter fittings

Typical test equipment connections are shown in Figures 12 and 13. Consult the instruction literature for the test equipment in use for detailed operating instructions.

With the test setup shown in Figures 12 and 13, 60 Vac may be present at coaxial cable connectors and provisions should be made to avoid possible damage to test equipment. 60 Vac will not be present at the output connector if the CBJ-5 circuit breaker is removed. The SSP-PI power inserter input connector may be protected by removing the appropriate fuse within the SSP-PI.

Forward Gain and Flatness Testing


The amplifier module can be tested in a conventional sweep setup for checking flatness and gain. Figure 14 may be used to identify the components and their location.
1 2

Connect the JLX-7-750P/ in a conventional forward sweep setup, as shown in Figure 12. Connect a short length of coaxial test cable in series with the input. Apply power. Set sweep frequency generator to cover frequencies between 50 MHz and the upper frequency limit, 750 MHz. Install the AGC programming plug in the MANUAL position. Turn forward GAIN control fully clockwise (maximum gain). Adjust forward SLOPE control for a flat response. Check for minimum full gain and flatness per specification. Rotate GAIN control fully counterclockwise and note the gain reading at the appropriate upper limit. Then rotate GAIN control fully clockwise and again note the gain reading at the appropriate upper limit. The gain control range should meet or exceed specification. Place 8 dB of cable in series with the input. Adjust SLOPE control for a flat response. Check that the flatness meets its specification. Adjust GAIN control for operational gain.

Installing Options
Two-way Option
Two-way service may be implemented by installing the return amplifier kit, model RA-KIT. The return amplifier kit consists of a hybrid gain block, and three cable equalizers. Not all items in the kit will be required. The hybrid gain block and one equalizer or equalizer jumper, as needed, are installed in the locations as shown in Figure 14. Special care must be used when installing the gain block to assure that all pins enter the appropriate sockets on the circuit board. Misaligned pins could be damaged, if handled carelessly. Bend the ground lugs on the circuit board over the hybrid mounting holes, and install the furnished screws. Heatsink compound, part number 663-008-000, or equal, may be used between the hybrid flange and the housing to facilitate thermal conductivity, if it is available. Heatsink compound is not furnished in the return amplifier kit. Install the two JXP-ZX or alternately JXP-*A pads, as needed, into the input and output pad facilities. The input pad facilities can be used to inject return sweep signals in the field, if it is needed. It can also be used to limit the input signal level to the return amplifier. The output pad facility is normally used to balance return signal level against other return legs of the distribution system.

JLX--750P/LC/ Installation Manual

Bench Testing

The return amplifier may be tested by connecting the amplifier to sweep test equipment as shown in Figure 13.

Figure 13 Typical return sweep setup.

2 3

Apply power, and set the test equipment to sweep between 5 MHz and 50 MHz. Check the gain of the return amplifier at 30 MHz and compare the results against the specifications as shown in Appendix A.

This completes the testing of the return amplifier.

Automatic Gain Control


To install the MB-ACB/ automatic gain control option, remove the module cover. Figure 14 or the amplifier cover illustrates the proper location. Install the MB-ACB/ board by pressing the board firmly into the socket. Care should be exercised to avoid bending of the connecting pins. Set the AGC programming plug to the AGC position. This completes the MB-ACB/ installation. Testing of the unit is more easily accomplished after field installation, and therefore a procedure is not given.

Accessories
The CTF-JLX-750 thermal control board can be inserted at the input position. The CTF-JLX-750 is not used when the MB-ACB/ option is installed. A CBJ-5 circuit breaker or CFJ-7A fuse is installed to pass power from the RF input port to the output. Refer to Figure 14 for the location and consult system drawings for the requirements.

Installation and Adjustments

Strand/Pedestal Mounting
The housing assembly JLX-HSG is equipped with two clamp assemblies for suspension on the strand. Where greater clearance is required, auxiliary hanger brackets may be substituted and the clamp assemblies transferred from the housing to the brackets. Installing the amplifier on the strand follows:
1 2 3 4

Remove the ac power from the cable on which the housing is to be installed. Loosen the bolts on the strand clamps 3/16 inch. Open the housing using a 7/16 inch nut driver to loosen the six captive bolts that engage the flanges on the housing cover. Loosen the two terminal screws in the housing platforms enough to allow entry of the cable center conductors. (Access to the two terminal screws is provided by holes in the amplifier cover.) Remove the cap plugs from the cable ports in the housing. Install an entry adapter fitting in each port. Make sure the threads are clean. Hand tighten, then wrench tighten the body of each connector; consult the instruction sheet for the fitting to find the proper torque. Temporarily close the housing; slight engagement of the top center bolt is sufficient. Take the housing up to the strand and engage the strand wire in the clamp assemblies. The clamps will open when forced onto the strand. Tighten the clamp bolts far enough to keep the housing on the strand while permitting the housing to be moved freely for proper positioning. One turn of the clamp bolts should be enough. Open the housing and let the cover hang down freely. Prepare the coaxial cable ends as required by the type of connectors used. The center conductor should be exposed to a length of 1-3/8 inches (or the adapter pin should have that length). If heat-shrink tubing is to be used to protect the connection, it should be slipped over the cable before the connector is installed. One cable end should be connected completely before connecting the second cable end. Secure the cable end in the cable connector as described in the instruction sheet for the connector. Tighten the terminal screw onto the cable center conductor and torque to 10-12 in-lb.

7 8

10 Repeat the connector installation with the second cable end. 11 Protect both cable connections with heat-shrink tape or tubing. 12 Position the housing so the customary expansion loops can be formed on the coaxial cables.

Hand tighten, then wrench tighten the bolts on the strand clamps.

Installation and Adjustments

13 Lash the cables to the strand where they approach the strand and secure the cable lashing

wire to the strand with commercial clamps.


14 Restore the ac power to the cable.

For pedestal mounting, use the clamp bolts through appropriate holes in the pedestal mounting plate for securing the housing at the tapped holes provided in the back of the housing.

Adjustments
Manual Thermal Gain Control
After the amplifier has been installed and service has been restored on the cable system, allow a half hour or more to stabilize the temperature, then open the housing and do the following:
1

Check the ac input voltage at the 60 Vac test point. It must be greater than 38 V rms as measured with a true rms voltmeter. Check the B+ voltage at the + 24 Vdc test point; it should be 24 V, 0.4 V. Check the position of the AGC programming plug. It should be in the MANUAL position. (Refer to the legend on the cover.) Connect a signal level meter to the forward OUTPUT TEST point on the amplifier module. It should be noted that the test point level will be 30 dB below the actual output level. Rotate the slope control fully counterclockwise, then clockwise to increase the channel 2 signal level by 2 to 3 dB. Check the amplifier output tilt by comparing the channel 2 signal level to the high end level. The tilt should conform to the operational tilt of the system. If the tilt is greater than desired, replace the forward equalizer with a lower value, and conversely, if the tilt is less than desired, replace the equalizer with a higher value. Tune the signal level meter to the high end channel, and turn the gain control fully clockwise. Reduce the GAIN control to obtain the desired output level. If the GAIN control must be turned down by more than 3 dB, replace the JXP-ZX with a JXP-* of appropriate value to allow the GAIN control to be positioned near fully clockwise to achieve the desired output.

2 3

This completes the alignment.

Automatic Gain Control


When the optional MB-ACB- automatic control board is installed proceed as follows:
1 2 3 4

Select MANUAL gain by positioning the programming plug. The legend on the cover may be used as guidance. Turn the MANUAL gain fully clockwise for maximum output. Check the ac input voltage to the amplifier at the test point. It must be greater than 38 V as measured with a true rms voltmeter. Check the B+ voltage; it should be +24 V, 0.4 V. Confirm that signal is present at the input, particularly the pilot channel must be present. Connect a signal level meter to the OUTPUT TEST point. Tune the signal level meter to channel 2. Turn the slope control on the amplifier fully counter clockwise, then clockwise to increase the channel 2 signal level by 2 to 3 dB.

JLX--750P/LC/ Installation Manual

Installation and Adjustments

15

Check the amplifier output tilt by comparing the channel 2 signal level to the high end level. It should conform to the operational tilt of the system. If the tilt is less than desired, replace the equalizer with a higher value. Tune the signal level meter to the high end channel of the system. The signal level should be the desired operational level, plus the required gain reserve for the existing ambient temperature. Refer to Table 1 to find the proper gain reserve for the present temperature. For example: If the desired operating level of the high end channel is + 44 dBmV and the ambient temperature is 70 F, the gain reserve according to Table 1 is 3 dB (44 plus 3 equals 47 dBmV). If the level is greater than determined, install the appropriate JXP- pad to bring it to within 1 dB of the required level.

7 8

Reposition the AGC programming plug to be in the AGC mode. Adjust the LEVEL control on the MB-ACB/ to obtain the same operational level as obtained in step 6 above (44 dBmV in our example ).

This completes the field alignment.

Closing the Housing


1 2 3 4

Record all pertinent data for future reference. Check all module cover screws as well as module retaining screws for proper tightness. Check the condition of the RF gasket and the weather gasket before closing the lid. Defective gaskets must be replaced. It is important to progressively tighten the closure bolts in a diagonal pattern shown in Figure 15 to a final torque of 4 to 6 ft-lb.

This completes the installation.
