6725 Series MBUC AC Powered 25W Extended C-Band Block Upconverter
25W AC Powered Extended C-Band BUC, W/G output, AC Powered via external Power Connector, CE (6725-W/E-AC/EX-CE)
6700 series C-Band and 6900 series Ku-Band Block Up Converters (BUCs) offer a wide range of distinctive advantages and enhanced features for satellite communications systems. Available in a variety of models, the 6700 and 6900 series BUCs provide industry-leading technical performance.
- RF Performance
RF performance is superior, particularly: intermodulation performance, gain stability over temperature and flatness across the IF band. The 6700 and 6900 series also boast industry leading spurious and harmonics specifications. Guaranteed RF performance ensures expensive system link margins do not have to be used to cope with RF transceiver variations.
- CE Compatible
While CE certified versions are available, all BUCs are designed to ensure that the customer can easily achieve CE certification at a system level for a transmission system in the EU.
All Codan BUCs are tested to the following standards:
Codan BUCs all feature low power consumption and low temperature rise, ensuring internal components do not suffer undue stress. DC-powered BUCs are powered either via the transmit IF cable or optional external DC power connector. AC-powered BUC modules are AC mains powered via an external connector.
- Internal Protection
Internal protection against high temperature and short or open circuit RF output is standard. Input voltage detection ensures reliable shutdown and restart under brownout or blackout conditions.
- External Protection
The BUCs are completely protected from the elements, are without external user controls, and are fully sealed and pressure tested to 34 kPa (5 psi). Particle and moisture penetration is rated to IP67. High quality paint is used to protect the modules from corrosion.
Advanced FeaturesEnhanced Monitor and Control
All operating functions can be controlled and monitored via the serial M&C facilities. The standard output power meter facility features high accuracy and the ability to measure both CW and burst mode signals. The 6700 and 6900 series is capable of operating with a PC without requiring proprietary software. The user has the choice of an FSK based M&C interface, which is fed via the transmit IF cable for use with intelligent modems or separate RS232 or RS422/ RS485 interfaces. Multiple M&C protocols are provided to enable integration into a number of network management systems.
