Newtec Satcom FRC0730 Up/Down Frequency Converter

FRC0730 RF Frequency Converter

The Newtec FRC0730 is an ultra high performance synthesized Up & Down Frequency Converter designed for a massive range of broadcast, telco and IP satellite applications. In its default configuration, the FRC0730 upconverts IF signals (70 or 140 MHz) to L-band (950– 2150 MHz) and simultaneously downconverts L-band signals (950– 2150 MHz) to IF. Optionally, the FRC0730 can upconvert IF signals to C, Ku or DBS-band.

The FRC0730 offers highly advanced and unique features such as a calibrated high linearity over the entire bandwidth combined with a very high frequency stability. These features make the FRC0730 the perfect solution for a wide range of transmissions ranging from very small carriers to full transponder applications. The IF frequency is switchable from 70 MHz to 140 MHz and the L-band frequency is adjustable in steps of 48 Hz.

The high output frequency stability is provided by an internal 10 MHz reference clock. For applications requiring a very high frequency stability, such as very low data rate carriers, an optional 0,01 ppm stability reference clock can be ordered separately.

A switchable DC power supply and a reference frequency on the L-band output are also available as options, providing a compact and cost effective solution when the FRC0730 is used in combination with an outdoor RF Upconverter and/or amplifier. Optionally, an LNB power supply, a frequency band selection signal and a 10MHz reference frequency can be delivered to an LNB via the L-band input.
