Teledyne Paradise Datacom’s second generation VSAT Block Up Converters is a completely new design based on the new ZBUC™
intelligent technology and the reliability of the Teledyne Paradise Datacom SSPA product line.
For system compatibility, the package size and footprint have been maintained from the first generation VSAT BUC.
A wide range of monitor and control is standard and includes:
Legacy FSK protocol
Standard Paradise Datacom RS485
Ethernet Interface supporting:
Internal Web Browser
The vBUC is available in 1:1 redundant configurations, 1:2 redundant configurations with
the addition of a RCP2-1200 Redundant System Controller. Chain 1:1 redundancy is available with
the use of a RCPD-1100 Dual Redundant Controller.
Single box BUC output power levels to:
CE Compliance Testing
Wide Range of Interface Capability including:
Output Power Detection
Automatic detection of external reference power and frequency
The Paradise Datacom Universal Monitor & Control software provides a remote view of the state of the vBUC via a web browser.
The user may adjust the attenuation of the vBUC and mute/unmute the unit. In addition, the web-based status screen
shows the fault condition, mute state, current and temperature.
AC Power Supply Option
The vBUC is available with an optional AC Power Supply, which attaches to the top of the BUC, opposite the fan.
An optional stand-alone mounting assembly is also available. The AC Power Supply provides up to 500 Watts of power at 48VDC output.
Input power requirements: 85-265VAC, 47-63Hz.
