AnaCom Ku-Band Baby BUC

The AnaCom Ku-Band Baby BUC provides the small mounting size, high output power, and high reliability needed by most mobile and fly-away antennas, even in situations involving extreme temperatures and high vibrations. Anacom's Baby BUCs are designed for continuous outdoor duty in all types of harsh environments.

Ideally suited for SCPC, MCPC, DAMA, TDMA, and VoIP applications and designed to interface with any L-band modem, the Baby BUC may be used in a wide variety of communication networks.

AnaCom Ku-Band Baby BUC now features web-based and command-line access to Monitor and Control functions accessible via Ethernet, FSK, Telnet, RS-232- and RS-485, and device monitoring over SNMP.

Baby BUC Features

  • Built in test capabilities for improved maintainability and reduced dependence on external test equipment
  • No indoor RF equipment is needed
  • Superior phase noise
  • Flexible, universal DC power supply (AC optional)

Built In Test Capability

To improve and simplify maintenance routines, an external terminal (or computer) can be connected to monitor a number of critical parameters without use of additional test equipment. These include:

  • Transmitter power output level
  • TX IF level
  • Power supply voltages
  • TX synthesizer loop voltages
  • Internal Temperature
  • Alarm Details

Controllable functions from the terminal include:

  • TX On/Off
  • TX Gain


  • “Last Touch” controls allow for remote configuration or local (manual) configuration
  • Flash memory means that the BUC always powers up with exactly the same operating conditions as when it lost power (or was shut down)
  • Comprehensive maintenance features for operational effectiveness and minimum outages.
  • Simple installation.

Comprehensive Monitor & Control

The Baby BUC's Monitor & Control feature allows you to monitor and control the BUC on the same M&C bus with most indoor equipment such as modems and multiplexers. The Monitor & Control system can be used in combination with the unit’s internal metering function to monitor operational parameters.

The M&C can be accessed remotely via-

  • Serial Protocols:
    • RS-232
    • RS-485
    • FSK
    • Supervisor 9
  • Ethernet protocols:
    • HTTP
    • Telnet
    • SNMP
    • Supervisor 9

Compact Functional Design

The upconverter, power amplifier, monitor and control and power supply are included in a single enclosure. The only cabling required to the indoor equipment are IF and power. An optional ovenized, high stability crystal oscillator can be used to lock the TX synthesizer. Additional temperature and aging compensation are provided by an onboard microprocessor.
