AnaCom's series of EKU Band VSAT transceivers are available in transmitter output levels of 0 dBm, 2, 4, 8, 16, 20, 23 watts, in single or redundant configurations. Higher powers are available with external HPAs. These transceivers are ruggedly built for continuous outdoor duty in all types of environments. They are especially suitable for SCPC, MCPC, and DAMA applications.
Compact Functional Design
AnaCom's VSAT transceivers integrate all necessary functions into a small, highly integrated out-door package which provides excellent reliability in a wide range of environments and functions.
The up converter, down converter, power amplifier, monitor and control and power supply are included in a single enclosure. The only cabling required to the indoor equipment are IF cables. The LNC connects to the transceiver with a single coaxial cable.
An ovenized, high stability crystal oscillator is used to lock the TX and RX synthesizers. The onboard microprocessor is used to give additional temperature and aging compensation.
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:
Controllable Functions from the terminal include:
Comprehensive Monitor & Control
A powerful Monitor and Control feature allows you to monitor and control the transceiver 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.
MS DOS and Windows??-based Supervisor M & C software is provided for use in combination with a PC for monitoring and controlling all major earth station equipment besides the transceiver.
