General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies (formerly VertexRSI) BDC-Series Block Downconverters are specifically designed to
translate a block of C-Band or Ku-Band input frequencies to L-Band
These block downconverters have the quality,
stability and performance required for demanding receiver applications in today's diverse satellite communications systems.
Type N Connectors
25 dB conversion gain
The BDC-Series Converters may be powered by one of two methods. Either supply +12 to +25 Vdc between the center conductor and
ground of the L-Band output cable (cable powered) or apply +12 to +25 Vdc to the DC power RFI and the ground lug.
The alarm RFIs provide a Form-C contact which indicates a fault if phase lock is lost. The alarm circuit is rated at 100 V at 50 mA.
