The P7001Q is a next generation, fully synthesised, Quad, L-Band DownConverter which provides a low-cost solution for systems requiring an IF interface at 70 ±18MHz or 140 ±36MHz. The unit incorporates a graphics display module, membrane keyboard and features a clear and intuitive control and configuration menu fully utilising the unique graphics display.
For redundancy the P7001Q uses a simple CANBUS® interface and has an integral redundancy controller for 1+1 and 2+1 operation. For channel to channel 1+1, 2+1 or 3+1 switching see external R1000L, R2000L and R3000L switch units, for complete chassis 1+1 or 2+1 switching see external R1000LQ, R2000LQ switch units, or for N+1 chassis switching systems a separate external control and switch unit is provided (RCU1000Q series).
The P7000 series of converters are designed to meet the phase noise, spurious, level and frequency stability requirements of Intelsat IBS/ Eutelsat SMS specifications and is compliant with IESS308/ 309. The product is most suitable for both high and low rate data and both digital and analogue TV signals.
Each DownConverter can be configured individually for parameters such as frequency, gain etc., as shown in the specification.
