AtlanTecRF Introduces Portable Loop Test Translators

first_imgAtlanTecRF has introduced an innovative approach to Satcom RF Testing, a Portable Battery Powered Loop Test Translators. This series of instruments is designed to be portable rather than part of a permanent 19” rack installation. This ability is important where there is a need to test transmission equipment prior to delivery or on-site before installation and also where the ground station is mobile and there is no requirement for continuous quality monitoring. They cover the S, C, X, Ku, DBS and Ka bands.As with their well know rack systems, the Battery powered Loop Translators provide translation either from transmit (Tx) to receive (Rx), Tx to L-band or L-band to Rx, thereby covering all likely frequency conversion scenarios. The manually controlled continuously variable attenuator provides a 30 dB range with LTTs having typical input and output VSWR of 1.8:1 and 20 dB conversion gain. Frequency stability is determined by either an internal 10 MHz OCXO with +/-0.05ppm max variation over temperature or by connection to a system 10 MHz source.Complete with tilt handle for convenient operation, these versatile and cost effective LTTs are compact at just 10.3 x 4.3 x 14.2 inches and weigh about 7 pounds.last_img read more
