AnaSat Transceivers
Anasat Transceiver

These transceivers have proven effective all over the world. They are supplied with a 70MHz or 140MHz interface and thus also allow the replacement of older equipment from different manufacturers. Therefore, you are in the position to replace the no longer available transceivers KSTAR and CSTAR from the former company SSE Technologies by these devices.

These transceivers include both a transmitter and a receiver. But there is also a cost-efficient "TX Only" version available because nowadays, completely separate LNC units and receiver are directly applied with L-band interface on the receiving end. This version is very interesting for pure up-link stations where for historical reasons, the modulator provides a 70MHz intermediate frequency.

The transceivers are available in all C- and Ku-band frequency ranges. In the C-band range, they cover the output power range up to 400W and in the Ku-band uo to 125W.

 

Anacom BabyBuc

AnaCom has broken new ground with the Baby BUC (Block Up Converter) product line to reduce weight and size significantly.

A BabyBUC weighs only 8kg with 50W output power at full performance range of a normal BUC. It contains, amongst others, an M&C interface and is available with an integrated 230V AC power supply or as DC version with external power supply. The BabyBUC is also available as a redundant configuration and deliverable in all Ku-band with output power up to 50W and C-Band up to 70W.

  • Standard Ku-Band: 14.0 - 14.5 GHz
  • Extended Ku-Band: 13.75 - 14.25 GHz
  • Super Extended Ku: 13.75 - 14.50 GHz
  • EC-Band: 5.850 - 6.425 GHz
  • SEC-Band: 5.850 - 6.725 GHz
  • PC-Band: 6.425 - 6.725 GHz
  • XC-Band: 6.725 - 7.025 GHz

 

ELSAT Block Upconverter

  • LMI C-Band: 5.725 - 6.025 GHz
  • Standard Ku-Band: 14.0 - 14.5 GHz
  • Extended Ku-Band: 13.75 - 14.25 GHz
  • Super Extended Ku: 13.75 - 14.50 GHz
  • XKu-Band: 12.75 - 13.25 GHzX-Band: 14.0 - 14.5 GHz

 

RackSat Converter
Anacom RackSat Converter

The RackSat transmitting and receiving converters are 19inch units designed for indoor rack installations. They are very stable and suitable for all transfer matrix methods of satellite communication. The step size of the built-in synthesizer is 1MHz. The converters cover all C- and Ku-band frequency ranges. They are delivered with a 70MHz or 140MHz interface and 50Ohm or 75Ohm impedance.

In addition, RackSat converters come along with an L-band interface. They work either as a Block Up (BUC) or Block Down Converter (BDC). Therefore, you have the opportunity in existing installations to easily transfer L-band signals up to end frequency range and deliver them to already existing travelling wave tube amplifiers. In the receiver chain of the satellite ground station, the L-band signals can be easily converted down behind a stable LNA (Low Noise Amplifier).

In both cases, this results in a stable and transparent installation with built-in power supplies, 1:1 redundancy switching and M&C interface.

Protection Switch
Anacom Protection Switch

AnaCom's Protection Switch System provides a high reliability 1+1 Hot-Standby configuration for ANASAT Transceivers, ELSAT BUCs, BabyBucs und SSPAs. The Protection Switch System is ruggedly built for continuous outdoor duty in all types of environments. The Protection Controller is designed for simple, intuitive operation. TX and RX switches function independently.

The Protection Controller is fully contained in a single, small out door box with manual over-ride controls. Although normally intended for un-manned, automatic operation, the switch can be locally (or remotely) over-ridden to place a particular TX or RX unit online. The Monitor and Control feature allows you to monitor and control the Protection Controller and both transceivers on the same RS232/RS485 M&C bus.
