American Cable Electronic Services

Products Page

    American Cable Electronic Services specializes in the design and manufacture of Passive Combining Network systems, Filter Mounting systems and Patch Panels. These include 8-way, 4-way, 2-way and directional couplers. The passive devices are mounted into a Uniplate module that holds two 8-ways or four 4-ways, 2-ways or DCs or any combination. These combinations can include one 8-way and two of the others. The modules mount into an MF-4RU frame, which holds five of the modules. All of the passives are fully tested prior to installation into a module. The filter system also holds five modules. Each module holds six filters to be installed in a single MF-4RU frame. The patch panel product has up to 16-DBL BNC jacks and a designation strip. We also fabricate custom patch panels.

    American Cable Electronic Services has thousands of combining frames in head ends, OTNs, and hubs throughout the country.

    We can build combining networks using your specifications or we can help you design one. Turnkey services can be provided upon request. Our jumper cables, which we provide for the combining system or patch panels, are manufactured from CommScope HEC2 copper braid coax and snap and seal type "F" connectors. We also fabricate custom cable assemblies.

    American Cable Electronic Services can also supply the rack mounting system for the frames and filters. Rack products can be:
        A) Stand alone or Gangable rack enclosures, ideal for large cable bundles.
        B) Narrow design for large multi-bay jobs with vertical and horizontal lacing bars.
        C) Wall mounting rack system.
        D) Equipment holding racks.
        E) Vented tops, side rails, doors of Metal, Mesh, or Plexiglas.
