The Radyne ComStream Model SFC6400 C-band Synthesized Frequency Upconverter has been designed to provide performance that meets or exceeds industry standards.
The SFC6400 features also provide ease of integration and operation. The SFC6400 offers the highest standard output power of any rack-mount upconverter available.
With an output P1 dB in excess of +15 dBm, the SFC6400 may eliminate the need for line amplifiers in your next installation.
Installation of the SFC6400 into any existing earth station is easily accomplished due to the presence of independently adjustable input and output attenuators that provide total gain control of 50dB.
The input attenuator optimizes the existing IF power applied to the converter to a level which guarantees optimal performance over 30 dB of input signal power. Output power is adjustable over 20 dB which further guarantees that spurious performance is maintained independently of upconverter gain.
Linearity of the converter is equally impressive. The SFC6400 boasts a two tone IMD products of -54dBc for a combined output power of 0 dBm. Phase linearity is maintained through an internal group delay equalizer that limits parabolic plus linear group delay to less than three nanoseconds across the band.
Thus, the SFC6400 is ideally suited for multiple carrier or DVB uplinks where linearity and group delay distortion becomes critical.
PROTECTION SWITCH VERSATILITY
The Radyne ComStream SFC Converter products feature ‘plug-and-play’ ease of installation with the RCU101 1:1 or the RCU108 1:8 Redundancy Control Units. Identical firmware enables any converter to be plugged into the backup slot and assume the role of protection switch controller.
It is the backup converter that learns and stores the frequency, gain and channel settings of the primary converters. In the event the stored setting of the primary converter is changed, the backup converter will notify the user via the front panel and the RS232/RS485 interface.
All circuits are protected upon installation of the switch and upon completion of the learning process. This eliminates the need for complicated software configurations that might otherwise leave a circuit vulnerable.
Likewise, replacing a failed converter is as simple as plugging in a replacement.
