The SFC1450 Ku-Band Synthesized Frequency Up Converter has been designed to provide performance that meets or exceeds industry standards. The SFC1450 features also provide ease of integration and operation. The SFC1450 offers the highest standard output power of any rackmount up converter available. With an output P1 dB in excess of +10 dBm, the SFC1450A may eliminate the need for line amplifiers in your next installation. Installation of the SFC1450 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 50 dB. 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 up converter gain. Linearity of the converter is equally impressive. The SFC1450 boasts a two tone IMD products of -46 dBc 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 SFC1450 is ideally suited for multiple carrier or DVB uplinks where linearity and group delay distortion becomes critical.
MONITOR AND CONTROL
All of the configuration, monitor and control functions are available at the front panel. Operating parameters such as frequency, channel, gain, gain offset and switch settings (backup only) can be readily set and changed at the front panel. Additionally, all functions can be accessed with a terminal or personal computer via a serial link (RS-232, RS-485, or Ethernet) for complete remote monitor and control (M&C) capabilities. Extensive fault monitoring with masking capability, along with time and date stamped event storage are available.
