DBS devices require DC voltages on the coax input
or output connector and the RF signals must pass
through the power inserter.
Sonora power inserters couple regulated DC voltage
on coax cables while allowing the DBS signal to
pass through the inserter. DC Power originates from
switching, short circuit protected transformers.
DBS devices operate at a range of voltages and
currents. Power inserters and a power adaptors are
sold separately or packaged together. DC can be
inserted in one direction (HRFPI) or both directions
(HRFPIB) on the coax.

model HRFPI and model
PS201200 power supply.
LNB current is typically less
than 200 mA. Usi ng soli d
copper RG-6 coax with a loop
resistance of 4 ohms per 100,
the maximum cable length
can be calculated.
(20 V - 16 V) / (4 ohms x 0.2
Amp) = 500 feet.
Model SL5 LNBs employ current management to
minimize the current carried per coax. (500 mA total)
18 V = 200 mA, 18V 22kHz = 200 mA, 13V = 50 mA, 13V

Model SWM8 can be powered via Legacy Port 3.
The current draw was measured at three voltages:
29 V = 324 mA = 9.40 watts
24 V = 385 mA = 9.24 watts
20V = 460 mA = 9.20 watts
Model SL5 LNBs employ current management to
minimize the current carried per coax. (500 mA total)
18 V = 200 mA, 18V 22kHz = 200 mA, 13V = 50 mA,
13V 22kHz = 50 mA.
Model HRPIR242B powers (1) SWM16 switch and (1)
SWM8 switch. Model SD SWM-E2 splitter pass DC
from only one SWM so a single switch talks to the
dish. The total current is less than 1.5 Amps.

The second power supply powers the other (4)
SWM8 switches. The current use per supply is (4) x
385 mA = 1.54 Amps. NO SL5 powering is allowed
with this confguration.
Put 4 in a box and you have the heat of a 40 watt
light bulb. Put (8) in a box and the heat is like a 75
watt bulb. Model SWM-FAN provides airfow for lock
boxes housing SWM8 switches.
Model HRFPIB is used to split the DC of one supply
to power model SWM-FAN. (105 mA)
Model SWM16 can be powered via the DC/PWR port.
The current draw was measured at three voltages:
29 V = 607 mA = 17.6 watts
24 V = 720 mA = 17.3 watts
20 V = 860 mA = 17.3 watts
Model PS8-244000 provides 24 volts at 4 amps of
current to up to (8) outputs. Powering (2) SWM16
switches draws 1.4 Amps from power supply 1.
The second power supply powers the other (2) SWM8
switches. The current use for supply 2 is (2) x 720 mA +
105 mA (fan) = 1.5 Amps. NO SL5 powering is allowed
with this confguration.

SWM8 to SL5 Communication
Issue : Too many SWM8s talking to the SL5.
What is the afect of combining the multiple SWM LNB
power and 22 kHz tones?
Multiple 22 kHz signals when combined can create
constructive and destructive interference. 180 out of
phase combining will reduce the 22 kHz signal to zero!
Solution: Model 4SATPL-T is a polarity locker that
generates a fresh set of voltages and 22 kHz tones
while blocking the 22 kHz signals generated by
multiple switches.
