AtlanTecRF Satellite Communication-Loop Test Translators

  • Features
  • S, C, X, Ku & DBS Bands
  • Simulates Satellite Link
  • High Stability
  • Low Phase Noise
  • Gain Adjustment
  • Reference Output
  • 1U Rack Height
  • Custom Options
  • The ALT series of Loop Test Translators are designed to replace the satellite link for test and alignment of earth station systems operating in S, C, X, Ku or DBS frequency bands.
  • Incorporating fundamental frequency phase locked oscillators and double balanced mixers, the translators block convert frequencies from uplink to either downlink or L-band for instantaneous monitoring of frequency, power levels and modulation.
  • The input path contains a front panel controlled continuously variable attenuator for reducing input power levels.
  • Each unit also provides a reference frequency output and LO lock alarm.
