Channel Master Multiswitches are used to provide satellite signals of either RHCP or LHCP polarization from one dish at four or eight locations. In addition, when required, they provide terrestrial VHF/UHF signals diplexed on the same coaxial cable. At the customer outlet, the satellite signals are separated from the VHF/UHF signals with a diplexer such as Channel Master 4001IFD.
When VHF/UHF channels are not required, Models 6214IFD and 6228IFD are recommended. The VHF/UHF input is left unconnected.
Model 6214IFD and 6228IFD combine VHF/UHF (54-806 MHz) signals with satellite IF signals on one cable to provide up to eight independently switchable wideband outputs. They should be used with a masthead preamplifier or MATV amplifier when all desired VHF/UHF TV signals can be received at comparable levels from a stationary antenna or antenna system, or with a channelized MATV system when this is not the case. Passive VHF/UHF processing allows complete flexibility for VHF/UHF amplification. Recommended VHF/UHF amplifiers are: For 6214IFD - Spartan 3, Quantum 3, 7778, 7723, 7020C (CATV VHF) For 6228IFD - 7777, 7335C, 7034C (CATV VHF)
Models 6314IFD and 6328IFD amplify VHF/UHF (54-806 MHz) signals and combine them with satellite IF signals on one cable to provide up to eight independently switchable wideband outputs. They should be used when all desired VHF/UHF terrestrial TV signals can be received at comparable levels from a stationary antenna or antenna system. Other VHF/UHF amplifiers are not normally required or desired.
Each model requires the Channel Master 8014IFD 24VDC wall plug power supply (included.) This power supply will power the multiswitch and provide +13V at the RHCP and +18V at the LHCP input for the LNB. The current available is sufficient to power the multiswitch and the LNB plus, where needed, one 5213IFD or two 5113IFD line amplifiers.
The polarization selection control at each output is by receiver LNB voltage; a nominal +13V will select RHCP (or vertical polarization) signals whereas a nominal +18V will select LHCP (or horizontal polarization) signals. These units may be used with either a dual-fixed output LNB, twin-switched output LNB or from two LNBs connected to an orthomode transducer (OMT).

Ensure that all cable installation is complete before switching on the power supply associated with the unit. Typical losses for various TV and satellite cables are shown in Table 1.
CABLE TYPE Loss in dB per 100 feet Length
|RG59U||2.6dB||4.0 dB||6.5 dB||9.0dB||11.9dB||13.6 dB||15.3 dB|
|RG6U||2.1 dB||3.1 dB||5.0dB||6.9dB||9.1 dB||10.4dB||11.7dB|
For new installations, it is recommended that as a minimum RG6U, which has been sweep tested to the maximum frequency in use, be used for the downlead cable with longer cable runs using RG11U or its equivalent. To minimize voltage drop, only coaxial cable which has a solid, copper-center conductor should be used.
The recommended levels at the outlet plate for satellite signals are: -55 dBm minimum and -35 dBm maximum.
The recommended minimum level for VHF/UHF signals is 25 dBmV at the input connector of the 6214IFD or 6228IFD.
The recommended minimum level for VHF/UHF signals is 5 dBmV at the input connector of the 6314IFD or 6328IFD.
INSTALLERS OF THESE UNITS ARE ADVISED THAT THE CASES SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO AN ELECTRICAL GROUND VIA THE GROUND BONDING TERMINAL PROVIDED AND THAT ALL INPUT AND OUTPUT SIGNAL CABLES ARE GROUND BONDED EXTERNALLY TO THE UNIT.
TYPICAL INSTALLATION DIAGRAMS
The following diagrams show some possible installations. Many other possibilities exist. Please contact our Technical Service Department, which will assist with any specific applications not covered here.
Figure below describes an application where satellite IF signals and VHF/UHF TV signals are diplexed onto one cable and distributed to four outlet points using 6214IFD units. Model 6228IFD may be used with the same input connections to provide eight outlet points
Figure below describes an application having sixteen outputs showing how 6228IFD units can be arranged to provide additional outlets. Two 6214IFD units may be used with the same input connections to provide eight outputs.
