An integrated sequenced voltage to control external mast-mounted preamplifiers is provided. A built in Bias-T allows the preamp voltage to be injected onto the coaxial cable. For those preamplifiers that can’t be powered via the coax and require a separate DC cable, the sequenced voltage is available via a back panel connection.  As with all BEKO Elektronik amplifiers, a front panel switch allows the user to select external preamp on/off function thus allowing the preamplifier to be switched in-line or off-line.  See us for suitable mast-mounted preamplifiers.  The HLV-950 provides a direct connection to the HPP-50 mast-mounted preamplifier.  Note:  Antenna systems that have a DC short at the feedpoint require an external DC block at the antenna or the separate DC cable from the amplifier to power the preamplifier.
