      [Via Satellite 12-18-2014] Comtech EF Data has introduced its new LPOD-R Block Up Converter models. Each LPOD-R consists of a Solid-State Power Amplifier (SSPA) module with a monitor/control processor, a power supply and a fan assembly. LPOD-R is equipped with temperature compensation, power monitor and power factor corrected supply as standard features. It also features data logging, remote monitor and control capabilities, a low loss combining technique and monitor/control processor-based temperature-versus-gain compensation.

      The units are fully manageable via the NetVue Integrated Management System, a comprehensive network management and analytics engine that allows users to maximize resources, ensure network uptime and provide the elevated levels of service that are required to support fixed and remote sites in the field, according to Comtech. The LPOD-R meets the demands of satellite network sites, whether they are fixed, ship-borne, “flyaway” or Satellite News Gathering (SNG) vehicles.
