Xicom Technology XTS-50X1-B1 50W X-Band Solid State BUC
The XTS-50X1-B1 High Power Solid State Block Upconverters
(BUC) are a series of compact fully integrated antenna mount units designed for low cost operation and longevity. The L-Band input interfaces to standard modems operating in the 950 - 1450 MHz range.
Intended for outdoor operation, the XTS-50X1-B1 is light weight and allows for direct mount to the antenna. This eliminates
long waveguide runs and associated RF losses.
Forced air cooling is implemented in the package to allow reliable operation over extended temperature ranges. The monitor and control (M&C) interface provides a component system status.
The block upconverter operates from an external, weatherized
power supply which provides the system DC sources.
The L-Band transmit signal and 10 MHz reference frequency are brought to the unit over a single coaxial line.
