AUC 28 IF/L-Band Up/Down Converter

The AUC 28 is a new, wideband cost effective series of 70 or 140 MHz to L-Band Converters. Both the Transmit and receive chains have independent synthesizers. These converters can be configured using an intuitive menu tree from a LCD front panel. They are also equipped with optional L-Band auxiliary ports both on the transmit and receive chains for integrated working with other L-Band systems.

The Converters can also be configured and monitored remotely on a PC using an RS232/RS422 interface. They provide 24V DC, a very stable and low phase noise Reference of 10 MHz for the BUC and a 15V DC and the reference for LNB. The BUC and LNB can be driven with cables up to 200 ft.

These converters come in a standard 19” Rack of 1 RU height.
