IBUC – High Power X-Band

IBUC – High Power X-Band Intelligent Block Upconverter

The revolutionary IBUC has advanced features to take your network to new heights. 

IBUC offers significant benefits: 

  •   Low terminal cost 
  •   Simple design and installation 
  •   Superior RF performance 
  •   Simplified 1+1 configuration

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

  •   Troublefree commissioning with easy, pointandclick installation/configuration 
  •   Continuous verification of performance with timestamped alarm history 
  •   Simplified monitoring of terminal status


The IBUC 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.
