Overview

The RF marketplace has been transitioning from traditional 70/140 MHz IF-based networks to systems using L-Band (950 to 2000 MHz) for the modem/RF equipment link. The MBT-4000 and MBT-4000B Multi-Band RF Transceivers are designed to perform C, X, Ku or Ka RF to L-Band down conversion and L-Band to C, X, Ku or Ka RF up conversion. The MBT-4000 supports two independent converter modules. The MBT-4000B supports one up converter module and also provides the bias, reference, and monitoring of one LNB.
