70 MHz – L-band Up-Converter: Single/Dual Channel, WAAS & EGNOS Compliant
The Advantech Wireless L-Band Synthesized Frequency Converter, WE range, uses the latest technology in conversion, local and remote control thus providing the ultimate in performance and user friendly operation at a very competitive price.
The spectral purity, low phase noise and high stability meet the requirements of WAAS and EGNOS international satellite network operators.
The flexible and comprehensive monitor and control features on the WE series converters ensure that it will fit into any network management system architecture. The user-friendly front panel or the RS485 remote interface will provide full set-up and fault monitoring facilities. The RS232 will provide the Monitor and Control functions via a PC and will also allow for software downloading.
The converter is fully synthesized with the PLL oscillator either locked to a highly stable internal 10 MHz reference or if the external 10 MHz reference signal with proper power level is present, the PLL will automatically lock to the external reference.
The WE range of converters are particularly suited for use in WAAS and EGNOS networks that provide accurate location indication, by correcting the GPS signal provided. This makes them an ideal choice for large earth stations specialized in WAAS or EGNOS applications. The lightweight, rugged and compact design also ensures that the WE converter provides the ideal solution for mobile satellite systems. With fully welded aluminium chassis and robust modular internal construction the converter can even meet the demands of military installations. The WE range of converters provides an industry leading MTBF of over 250,000 hours.
