CEFD UT-4514/D Upconverter IF- to Ku-band (13.75-14.5GHz)
The CEFD UT-4514/D Upconverter IF- to Ku-band is the ultimate in high performance and cost-effective Ku-Band frequency conversion. The UT-4514/D can be used for SCPC, DAMA, and TDMA, as well as full transponder HDTV and analog TV. Spectral purity and stability characteristics fully meet or exceed the requirements of all domestic, international, and regional commercial satellite.
The UT-4514/X has +10dBm minimum output level at the 1dB compression point and 35dB of gain as a standard. This capability permits longer cable runs to the modem rack or compensates for elaborate splitting networks without adding expensive options such as external line amplifiers.
Low Phase Noise
The phase noise performance of the UT-4514/D exceeds the Intelsat phase noise mask for IBS and IDR services by more than 8dB. This allows phase dependent demodulators to perform better. The close-in phase noise is very low, making the converter ideal for low bit rate digital circuits such as those used in DAMA hub earth stations.
Daisy Chain Redundancy Switching
The converter uses CEFD’s proprietary “Daisy Chain” integrated switching technology. The Daisy Chain design removes the relays associated with a centralized protection switch tray and distributes them across the individual converters. Comtech EFData was awarded patent 5,666,646 on this distributed protection switch topology.
Daisy Chain technology successfully eliminates a central switching chassis, two power supplies, a microprocessor, and several long, costly cables. Widely accepted in the industry, CEFD’s Daisy Chain provides both pricing and marketing advantages.
Unit will be tested prior to shipping ex works The Netherlands. Please ask us for more details.
