These new G.703 baluns are used with 1.6/5.6 coaxial connectors and provide connection for TX and RX connections on a single twisted-pair wire.

--Image: RACKABLE! Rack Mount Available --Baluns are miniature adapters for connecting mixed cable types or devices with mis-matched interfaces. They enable carrier and large-enterprise customers to standardize on twisted-pair wiring, even though some equipment may have unique E1 terminations (see diagrams below).


The Model 465 has the 1.6/5.6 coax connectors used extensively in telephone exchange sites. The balun has two interfaces, so both the TX and RX coax signals can be carried over a single length of twisted-pair cabling (which is much less costly than any kind of coaxial cable).

  • Use 120-ohm twisted-pair wiring with unbalanced coaxial equipment.
  • Uses 1.6/5.6 coaxial connectors.
  • No more buying expensive and space-hungry hardware for patching and distributing G.703 connections.
  • Low-cost model supports rates of 2 Mbps (faster versions are available for rates up to 155 Mbps).
  • Low insertion loss, fully meets ITU-T (CTR12) G.703 standards.
  • Standard twisted-pair terminations.
  • Enclosed in flame retardant housings.
  • Baluns are 100% tested for reliability and durability.
  • Baluns come in a variety of connectors and packaging.
  • Customized versions available upon request.
