Ka Band Transceiver




The new BUC 4 is a high performance Ka-Band transceiver with unprecedented versatility. The product includes the complete antenna feed chain with polarizer, a wide-band PLL LNB and an OpenBMIP Monitoring and Control facility – all in a single, IP67 rated, enclosure. The unit is convection cooled (fan-less) to ensure best reliability. The DRC has the capability to operate over commercial and military Ka-Band frequencies by electronic sub-band switching. It also features electronic polarization switching between RHCP/LHCP as well as co-polar and cross-polar modes.
All this versatility allows the DRC to switch between any satellite without changing hardware. Standard L-Band RX-IF and TX-IFL interfaces match common VSAT modems. All production units are 100 % RF tested under environmental extremes.
