Looking for MoCA Bypass Amp without Integrated POE Filter

Is anyone aware of a MoCA enabled bypass amp that does not have a built-in POE filter on the input side?

 

These amps are supposed to be installed at the demarc box, so the POE filter in that case blocks MoCA signals from leaving the home, which is what you want.  Unfortunately, that causes a problem in an in-line installation.

 

In my case,  I need to install it in the attic to boost the signal on an existing feeder line servicing a bunch of TVs and computers.   All of the MoCA enabled bypass amps I've seen so far (Commscope, PPC, Extreme Broadband) feature built-in POE filters, which in my situation will cut off MoCA communication to the other coax lines in the house.  

 

So I'm looking for a MoCa bypass amp designed for in-line installations, which does not have the POE filter, and which would essentially just act like a zero loss splitter.

 

Anyone aware of a model like this?

Thanks

Re: Looking for MoCA Bypass Amp without Integrated POE Filter

Thanks.  Went to the manufacturer's site and that one looks to have an integrated POE filter.

 

There is an Electroline 2500MMA which I am following up on now.  Its internal diagram shows  a box entitled [LPF 1002/1125] between the RF in port and the out ports.  I believe that is a low pass filter, but not sure if that is the same as a POE filter.

 

If such an amp doesn't exist,  I could probably use a splitter than would just split the MoCA band signals, but pass the RF signal straight through one port .  That was the cable box could get all the RF, and the MoCA signals could be divided and used for other things. I just don't know if such a thing exists.
