C-Band Block Redundant Frequency Converters FCB100R
The Advantech Dual – HP range of C-band frequency converters uses the latest technology in conversion, giving two independent conversion chains in 1 RU package, 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 stability exceed the requirements of all major international satellite network operators. The flexible and comprehensive monitor and control features on the HP frequency converter 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 frequency converter uses a PLL oscillator either locked to a highly stable internal 10 MHz reference or if the external reference option is fitted and the proper level of signal is present, the PLL oscillator will automatically lock to the external reference.
