Overview

The MBT-5000 Up/Down Converter System provides this frequency conversion between L-Band IF and C-/X-/Ku/Ka-Band RF frequencies. Featuring a drop down front panel providing access to two “hot swappable” frequency conversion modules, this unit offers either a mix of conversion functionality or 1:1 redundant system operation.

Designed for rack mounting, the MBT-5000’s 1RU 19-inch chassis front panel contains all operator controls, indicators and displays for local and remote with RF, IF, power, and communications interfaces on the rear. When configured with the redundancy option, the main chassis contains two diode “OR-ed” internal power supplies for increased reliability along with the necessary IF/RF switches.
