L Band To Tx Masthead Upconverters
SUC Series

  • Provides Uplink Test Signals
  • L Band Input
  • S, C, X, Ku, DBS, Ka and Q Band Output
  • Weatherproof Enclosure
  • High Stability Internal OCXO
  • Good Phase Noise
  • Various Mounting Options
  • Custom Options Available

Designed for Satcom test applications, the SUC Series of Masthead Converters from AtlanTecRF offer a cost effective solution for converting from L Band to all common satcom uplink frequencies. All models incorporate fundamental frequency phase locked oscillators and double balanced mixers. The Converters are designed for remote mounting, with DC supplied on the L-Band RF input.

Options:
01 - Internal OCXO for +/-0.05ppm stability
02 - Internal amplifier for 0dB (nominal) conversion loss
03 - Relay closure and monitor socket for remote monitoring
04 - U Bolts for pole mounting (specify pipe size)
05 - Bias Tee for the RF source / DC supply
50 - Custom requirements – please call to discuss
