AtlanTecRF Introduces Plug-In Loop Test Translator for SATCOM RF Testing

AtlanTecRF has released a new plug-in 6U Loop Test Translator (LTT) for RF satcom testing. The standard width plug-in 6U Module contains all RF functions with power and control inputs at the back and RF connectors on the front panel.

A number of 6U modules can be stacked in a single chassis. These can include LTT functions and other functions such as amplification, signal generation or noise generation. All the modules be driven via the back plane by a common power supply (PSU) module and controlled by a digital local/remote ethernet, RS485 or other bus system.

While the traditional configuration for loop test translators used in off-satellite set up, calibration, alignment and quality monitoring of ground based equipment in satcom terminals is the 19” x 1U rack mount chassis, in other applications such as automatic test systems used in the manufacture of satellite terminals such packaging does not deliver optimum equipment densities or ease of operation. In such situations AtlanTecRF's new plug-in 6U Module comes into its own bringing ATE stacking principles to the satcom RF test world.

Some key features of the 6U Module include:

  • Availability for all Bands
  • Simulates Satellite Link
  • Designed for High Density Rack Mounting
  • Suits requirements for Multiple Translators
  • Translators share a common Power Supply/Reference Module
  • Remote Ethernet Control for LO Frequency and Signal Attenuation
  • Custom Options
