Work Microwave VSCD-KA1KA1T Ka-Band Tracking Downconverter

WORK Microwave’s VSCD-KA1KA1T Ka-Band Satellite Down Converters meet the demanding requirements of modern satellite transmission applications. Customers worldwide appreciate their reliability and high level of quality. The dual-channel, shared oscillator converters can be used in systems where an accurate phase relationship is required between two converter channels, as is the case for monopulse tracking system down conversion.

Operating and control

The converters can be operated via the push buttons on the front panel using self-explanatory display menus or via remote control (RS232, RS422/485, TCP/IP over Ethernet).

Detailed monitoring of the system status and a summary alarm output (dual change over switch contacts) are provided. For the remote control ASCII string-based commands as well as addressable, packet-based commands are provided.

Housing options

The converters normally are delivered without fans and can be operated in environments, where at minimum one RU space for natural ventilation is available above each unit. This eliminates the fan as a potential point of failure. For rack installations without any space in between the units, a fan within the converter unit is recommended. This forces airflow from the right side to left side of the units. Outdoor versions with IP 67 degree of protection are also available.
