The pBUC Series from AnaCom are Ku-Band Block Up Converters that up-convert an input frequency from 950 – 1700 MHz to an output frequency from 13.75 – 14.50 GHz. These BUCs provide an output power of up to 40 W with a gain of more than 64 dB. They have a phase noise of -90 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz offset and spurious level of less than -55 dBc. These BUCs require a DC supply of 48 V and consume less than 400 VA of power. They are available in a lower-profile case and are best suited for use with most mobile and fly away antennas.
The BUCs can be connected to an external terminal (or computer) to monitor a number of critical parameters without use of additional test equipment. They include web-based and command-line access to Monitor and Control functions which are accessible via Ethernet, FSK, Telnet, RS-232- and RS-485, and device monitoring over SNMP. The upconverter, power amplifier, monitor and control and power supply are included in a single enclosure. The only cabling required to the indoor equipment are IF and power.
The pBUC Series are specifically designed to interface with any L-band modem and are available in modules that measure 12.6 x 10.3 x 4.4 inches. They are ideally suited for SCPC, MCPC, DAMA, TDMA, and VoIP applications.
