MITEQ Releases New Uplink Power Control Unit for Critical Ka-band Links
[Via Satellite 05-02-2014] MITEQ has announced the releases of its new, next-generation uplink power control for critical Ka-band links. The UPC2 uplink power control unit is rack-mountable and designed to adjust the strength of uplink signals to compensate for varying weather conditions.
The unit can control up to 10 uplink channels and adjust up to 30 dB of uplink power correction for each channel. Its attenuator channels are available for L-Band or 70/140 MHz IF frequencies.
The UPC2 can be setup completely from the front panel or over a remote bus via a host computer with all monitor and control functions are accessible both ways. The UPC2 protocol set is backward compatible with MITEQ’s UPC-A and UPC-L products.
As an option, MITEQ offers the UPC2 with remote site diversity switching supporting applications that employ geographically separated redundant uplink systems such that uplink signals will be transmitted from the site experiencing the most favorable weather conditions.
