The UPC7000 series are next generation Automatic Up-Link Power Control units (AUPC’s) that measure the ‘link loss’ from a Satellite Beacon signal and subsequently automatically control the UpLink power via a number of adjustable IF or L-Band Attenuator channels.

The Beacon Receiver can either be a separate external unit providing a DC signal to the unit or the UPC7000 series can be supplied with an optional internal Beacon Receiver based upon the popular Peak PTR50 ‘CW’ Beacon Receiver unit with L-band or SHF input options, providing a compact ‘total solution’ in only 1RU of rack space. The Beacon Receiver is offered with a Spectral Display facility which offers a convenient visual display of the received signal. The display can be used for system fault location, routine maintenance and can be an effective alternative to a fully functional spectrum analyzer, which may not be necessary for these tasks

Peak Features

  • Compact; 1RU solution for up to 4-Channel Integral AUPC control, with optional fail-safe ‘Bypass’ mode
  • Integral Beacon Receiver option (L-Band or SHF input), with Beacon ‘graphical’ display
  • Expandable; 10-Channel, 2RU ‘modular’ expansion unit available (see EXP010)
  • Controllable; 0-30dB, 0.1dB step attenuation allows up to 20dB AUPC range, plus user-settable ‘offset’.
  • Flexible; directly compensates Peak devices in UpLink chain (UpConverter, BUC, Line Amplifier)
  • High performance; Low insertion loss, high gain stability & flatness
  • Beacon Receiver output and key parameter 24hr ‘history’ recording facility
  • Preset and user settable ‘smoothing’ routines to prevent Beacon signal noise related response problems
  • Scintillation option offering rapid compensation changes for typically low look angle Satellites
