Comtech EF Data UT4518 Ku/DBS Band Upconverter

The Comtech EF Data (CEFD) UT-4518 Up Converter is
the ultimate in high-performance and cost effective
Ku-Band frequency conversion. The UT-4518 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
networks, including the Eutelsat HotbirdTM family.

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. CEFD was awarded patent 5,666,646 on this distributed protection switch topology.

Comtech EF Data DT4513 Ku-Band Downconverter Now Configurable

The Comtech DT-4513 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 networks.

We have updated this unit and made it configurable on our website, you can click Here to configure yours.

The DT-4513 has +20 dBm minimum output level at the 1 dB compression point and 45 dB 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.

The phase noise performance of the DT-4513 exceeds the Intelsat phase noise mask for IBS and IDR services by more than 6 dB. 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.
