RFI Three-Way 5.8GHz Power Divider - N-Type - Splitter/Combiner function - Ideal for 5.8GHz ISM applications - 3x N Female output - Connect three devices to the one antenna simultaneously by splitting the antenna signal. RFI Wilkinson-style power dividers/combiners are used in a variety of RF power dividing and combining applications. Typically used in DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) for distributing power throughout feeder cable networks. Designed using Wilkinson or N-way styled cascaded broadband binary power splitting or combining techniques offering broadband capability with good splitter output / combiner input, port-to-port isolation.
Splitter
The input signal is equally split into two output signals, each reduced by 3dB (ie halved) due to the 1:2 power division. A small signal loss of 0.5dB is incurred as no RF device can operate at 100% efficiency. When determining whether you can afford to split your signal you must consider that the signal will be halved between each device - is your signal strong enough? In very low signal areas it's often advisable to use two antennas instead of a splitter.
Combiner
While it is possible to sum two input signals with no loss, this can only be accomplished if the input signals are identical in phase and amplitude. When two signals are completely out of phase (180 degrees) the signals will cancel completely, hence the statistical average for two unknown signals is a 3dB combination loss (ie reduced by half).
