G.703 Mini Balun

A balun is a type of electrical transformer that can convert electrical signals that are balanced to signals that are unbalanced and vice versa. They are also used to change impedance of twisted pair's 120 ohm to coaxial's 75 ohm. An E1 balun's function is generally to convert an E1 carrier signal from coaxial cable to UTP CAT-5 cable. The BLN4010 is miniature Baluns designed for applications where space is restricted due to small dimensions or high densities. The fully shielded design intended for panel mounting and IDC twisted pair termination are available in either standard BNC or 1.6/5.6 jack unbalanced connectors.
