Minecom’s next generation amplifiers incorporate our new ZeroCal™ technology and Automatic Gain Control (AGC)
circuits to ensure the entire leaky feeder system is kept in balance and no calibration is required. Microprocessor
controlled attenuation circuits automatically maintain a constant signal level, regardless of cable loss, and prevent
unwanted signal gain entering the communications system.
