X-Band Synthesized Frequency Converter Redundant FCS200R
The Advantech Dual – HP X-band synthesized 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 hot swappable 1:1 redundancy feature provides for the ultimate flexibility in a very compact package. The flexible and comprehensive monitor and control features on the HP 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 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.

The HP range of x-band synthesized frequency converters is particularly suited for use in VSAT, SCPC Networks, SNG, DVB-RCS and Hub systems where compact redundancy is required. This makes them an ideal choice for large earth stations requiring cost effective solutions for frequency conversion. The lightweight, rugged and compact design also ensures that the HP converter provides the ideal solution for mobile truck or flyaway DSNG systems. With fully welded aluminum chassis and robust modular internal construction the converter can even meet the demands of military installations. The HP range of synthesized frequency converters provides an industry leading MTBF of over 120,000 hours.
