Motorola BDA Series Installation

To install a BDA-** drop amplifier using local power:

  1. Remove and discard the port thread protectors.
  2. Connect the amplifier RF output ports (RF output 1, 2, 3, 4) to yourtelevisions or set-top terminals using coaxial cable terminated with F-typeconnectors.
  3. Terminate all unused ports with 75 ohms for optimum RF performance.
  4. Connect the coaxial cable-in source to the RF input port of the amplifier.
  5. Connect one end of the coaxial cable to the AC adapter and the other end tothe power 12 VDC (18 VDC) connector on the amplifier.
  6. Plug the AC adapter into the wall outlet. The LED on the BDA-** should be litto indicate that the unit is receiving 12 VDC (S-series) or 18 VDC (K-series).

You can also locate the BDA- remotely in the basement or attic and power itfrom an AC outlet near the television. For best signal quality, install the BDA- as close to the cable entrance as possible. Use the power inserter to send powerto the amplifier through the coaxial cable attached to remote power/RF port 1 onthe amplifier.To install a BDA-** drop amplifier using remote power:

  1. Connect a coaxial cable from the Remote Power/RF Output port of theamplifier to the RF-PWR port of the BDP-100/PI power inserter.
  2. Connect the RF OUT port of the power inserter to your television or set-topterminal using a coaxial cable.
  3. If you have a two- or four-output amplifier, connect the additional televisionsor set-top terminals to the remaining output ports on the amplifier usingcoaxial cable.
  4. Terminate all unused ports with 75 ohms for optimum RF performance.
  5. Connect the coaxial cable-in source to the RF Input port of the amplifier.
  6. Connect a coaxial cable from the AC adapter to the PWR IN port of thepower inserter.
  7. Plug the AC adapter into the wall outlet.The power 12/18 VDC port on the amplifier remains non-terminated.
