SUC-C Series Microwave Upconverter

SUC-C Series Microwave Upconverter is a broadband frequency converter that is dedicated for satellite communication. It has a high performance, high reliability and an octave covered by RF signal. Its frequency step is precise and accurate to 1Hz with a variety of IF and signal bandwidth choices. SUC-C series is equipped with functions like self-testing and combination alarm which is suitable for long-time uninterrupted use, guaranteed safety and reliability.

SUC-C series microwave upconverter is mainly designed for satellite communication system, signal monitoring system, and electronic countermeasure system with an excellent phase noise, clutter suppression, and in-band flatness data. It is able to provide a transparent RF transmission channel to all videos or data communications. All programming commands can be set through a local panel or through network remotely. SUC-C series microwave upconverter has a standard 2U size.
