The MarineBoost 5.4 marine repeater comes with an external omni-directional antenna which is mounted high up on the mast. This receives the signal from all operators 360deg around the ship. A 15Mt cable (SD400) then transmits the signal to the 4 port repeater which is located inside the ship. The power output from each port on the MarineBoost 5.4 repeater is amplified (ie. the signal to every indoor antenna is independently amplified – it is not a passive splitter), so you get a very powerful signal to each of the 4 indoor antennas.
For example, on a large ship with with many levels, you can put 1 indoor antenna on each level.
The MarineBoost 5.4 is used for larger ships where you have internal steel walls which block the signal from the indoor antennas from passing into the neighboring rooms. It comes with 4x indoor antennas.
All european operators are amplified. All other operators around the world are amplified too, with the exception of America, South America and Canada.
The theoretical maximum distance the repeater can amplify the signal from is 30km.
The MarineBoost 5.4 receives signal from as many mobile towers on the land that it can see, within the 30Km radius. This increases the total number of operators available to your customers at any time.
The 4 port kit repeater includes:
Quick install guide
We recommend doing a "loose install" to begin with. Do not fasten down the cables until you have found where best to install the various parts.
Install the outdoor omni antenna somewhere secure on the outside of the ship.
Cable from this antenna down inside the boat to the location where you want signal.
Install the booster and indoor antenna here.
Finally, once you have attached all the cables, plug in the power.
