Intelix RF-F Broadband Video Balun

Pro-Grade RF over CAT 5 Extender

Intelix RF-F Broadband Video Balun

Intelix RF-F Broadband Video Balun

Use the Intelix RF-F Broadband Video Balun to send RF signals over a single twisted-pair cable, such as Cat-5 or Cat-6. Perfect for cable TV and Internet service that runs over coaxial cable.

This professional-grade device uses a high-performance passive design to deliver high-quality RF signals up to 100 meters (330 feet) over a single CAT 5 type cable. The RF-F is ideal for corporate A/V, schools, universities, as well as for discriminating individuals - just about any situation that involves a low-level RF interface.

As with virtually all systems that are based upon twisted-pair cable technology, the Intelix RF-F will work with virtually any twisted-pair cables, including Cat-5e and Cat-6, but range and bandwidth are directly related to both distance and cable quality, so to get the highest resolutions at the greatest distances, you will want high-quality, low-skew cables. If you want the very best pre-terminated cables, please consider our VideoTwist cables.

Notice that Intelix Baluns are designed to work with standard unshielded CAT5, CAT6, or CAT7 cable - shielded cable is not required!

While the RF-F may be used stand-alone, if you need a clean rack mounting option for a variety of baluns, the 19" rack kit, DIN-RACK-KIT-F, is ideal.

These units are sold singly, although two are required for a complete hook-up.  We do offer a kit below that includes two baluns at a  discounted price.

Like most Intelix products, the RF-F comes with a two year limited warranty from the manufacturer.
