- 2 hot swappable, redundant, L-Band to C-Band upconverter modules
- Redundant AC/DC power supplies
- Single 1RU chassis
- Local monitoring and control via front panel LCD and cursor/execute keys
- Local/remote monitoring and control via Ethernet and RS485 interfaces
UBS’ dual block upconverter converts an L-Band (950 MHz to 1825 MHz) IF input signal to a C-Band (5850 MHz to 6725 MHz) RF output signal with high linearity and stability. The lightweight, 1RU design is ideal for satellite contribution, distribution and direct-to-home (DTH) applications where a compact redundant system is required.
The 1RU design features two (2) hot-swappable upconverter modules in a 1:1 redundant configuration. The chassis design allows the upconverter modules to be replaced without interrupting chassis power. The BUC also features redundant AC/DC power supplies and an auto-sensing switch which allows the BUC to operate using an internal or an external 10 MHz reference signal.
The BUC’s operational parameters are monitored and controlled by an integrated system controller. A front panel display provides the user with local monitoring and control, while Ethernet and RS485 interfaces provide the user with local/remote monitoring and control via Web GUI, SNMP and CLI.
