Terrasat Low Energy Consumption Ku-Band and C-Band IBUC 2’s

Satcom Resources is pleased to announce the addition of Terrasat’s new Ku-Band and C-Band Low Energy Consumption Intelligent Block Upconverters (IBUC 2)

Low Energy Consumption IBUC2 Advantages

Integrated BUC/SSPA for higher performance and reliability.

Low energy consumption (65W) for use with Modems equipped with limited capacity BUC power supplies. DC power supplied via IFL coax.

High linearity.

Low phase noise better than IESS308/309 requirements by a minimum of 5 dB.

Embedded Web pages provide management for small networks using any Web browser.

AGC or ALC circuits hold gain or output level constant. 30 dB User‐adjustable gain in 0.1 dB steps preserves modem dynamic range.
Advanced user interfaces:

  • TCP/IP HTTP with embedded Web pages via RJ‐45 connector
  • SNMP
  • TELNET through TCP/IP
  • FSK through TX IFL cable
  • RS232/485 serial port
  • Hand‐held terminal

IBUC2 offers significant benefits:

  • High performance in a compact, cost effective package
  • Simple design and installation
  • Simplified 1+1 configuration

New interfaces connect you to extensive M&C facilities for network management or local access. This powerful M&C enables:

  • Trouble‐free commissioning with easy, point‐and‐click installation/configuration
  • Continuous verification of performance with time‐stamped alarm history
  • Simplified monitoring of terminal status

IBUC2 comes with a complete set of diagnostic tools including:

  • 10 MHz input detector
  • Input voltage and current monitoring
  • Transmit L‐band input level detector
  • Transmit RF output level detector
  • User configurable thresholds and alarms

Unique to the IBUC are internal AGC and ALC functions that satisfy demanding applications with stringent specifications.

MotoSAT MESA 1.2 HPX High Speed Motorized Earth Station Antenna

MotoSAT’s high speed MESA 1.2 HPX High Speed Motorized Earth Station Antenna is the most rugged motorized VSAT system ever. It is certainly best of class.

The MESA HPX is raising the bar and taking stationary VSAT communication to the next step and on the move.

Motorized RF Skew Assembly allows automatic alignment of the LNB and HPA-BUC to any position in the horizontal and vertical fields.

Automatic Satellite Acquisition
The MESA HPX is a motorized multi-platform satellite antenna with three axis alignment. Using the MotoSAT H3 Antenna Controller, the MESA HPX will automatically acquire any target KU or C-Band satellite worldwide using advance satellite acquisition methods.

Rugged, Reliable, Functional and Secure
The MESA HPX is a industry leading solution. The MESA HPX enables the user to maintain critical Voice/Data communication in extreme environments delivering security and peace of mind when standard forms of communications are no longer feasible due to location or technical complications. The MESA HPX eliminates costly re-pointing and network downtime.

Flexible, with Ease of Operation
The MESA HPX operates seamlessly with all commercially available satellite modems, allowing access to any broadband application via satellite. The MotoSAT MESA HPX allows personnel with little or no satellite experience to operate VSAT equipment for anytime/anywhere communications.

Permanent or Semi-Portable Applications
The MESA HPX can easily be relocated when mounted on a variety of mobile platforms thereby making your VSAT communication system mobile.

Inclined Orbit Tracking
Inclined Orbit satellites offer a cost effective alternative to traditional GEO station kept satellite bandwidth. With its motorized auto-aligning capabilities for both elevation and azimuth, the MESA HPX can accurately track inclined orbit satellites anywhere in the world.

Most businesses rely upon terrestrial connections for voice and data communications. When these traditional means go down, whether for short durations or long-term outages, your enterprise could be without critical services for hours or even days. MotoSAT’s satellite to LAN failover system provides your enterprise with the assurance that critical services will be uninterrupted when an outage occurs.

Paradise Datacom 7RU Rack Mountable Solid State Power Amplifier

Paradise Datacom 7RU Rack Mountable SSPAs represent the industry’s highest power density and most reliable high power amplifier systems.

Paradise Datacom’s Indoor, High Power Rack Mount (R) series SSPAs represent the industry’s highest power density and most reliable high power amplifier systems.

The High Power Rack Mount SSPA employs a modular design, which allows quick and easy replacement in the event of a catastrophic failure of one of the SSPA components. These modular assemblies include: hot-swap SSPA modules, front and rear fan trays; and a rear panel controller card. These amplifiers are powered via a separate power supply chassis.

The power supply is configured as a n+1 redundant, hot swappable, power supply comprised of three modules. Only two modules are required to operate the HPA, therefore one module is redundant. In the event of a power supply module failure, the amplifier system will not fail. The module can then be changed without ever taking the HPA out of service.

Power Supply Options

The 7RU Chassis may be fitted with a variety of power supply options. The dual 1RU power supply configuration provides redundancy with all power levels; or may be used as a non -redundant supply by utilizing fewer power supply modules. The stand-alone 1RU power supply can be used to power the 750W C-Band or 400W Ku-Band chassis. The standard 3RU, three-module power supply offers redundancy for all power levels.
