TRIAX TMB1000 Configuration Guide: Terrestrial Channel Processor

View the TRIAX TMB1000

What is the TRIAX TMB 1000?

The TMB1000 is a Terrestrial Channel Processor Headend Unit capable of receiving multiple antenna signals from different sources. Using internal processors the unit will filter and amplify these signals in preparation for the distribution via a coaxial MATV System.

Why you may need a Terrestrial Channel Processor:

A processor like the TMB1000 is able to receive and filter out noise from satellite reception. This allows for a cleaner and less load-intensive signal to be distributed to multiple outputs.

The TMB1000 has multiple benefits for residences or dwellings with multiple users.

  • Requires less equipment overall. With a headend unit, you do not need multiple processing units.
  • Easy to upgrade and maintain. All upgrades only need to be done on one unit.
  • Low interference in terrestrial signals helps relieve input load on the entire system.
  • Universal configuration. Once programmed, all outputs are configured and ready to go.
  • A low-cost way to expand channel processing to more users.

How to program the TRIAX TMB1000:

The TRIAX TMB1000 is a programmable processor and can be complicated to configure. That’s why we have provided a step by step configuration guide for FTA Channels for Victoria (Mt.Dandenong) channels 6,7,8,11,12.
