The 19 inch 1U rack mounted IBDH(Ka) series of Block Frequency DownConverter units from Peak Communications are designed to take the incoming SHF signal and produce an output at L-Band that is suitable for direct connection to an L-band demodulator or for further conversion typically by a P7001 synthesised DownConverter.
The IBDH(Ka) series of units are mains powered and are constructed of high grade components to give the ultimate performance. For redundancy the IBDH(Ka) uses a simple CANBUS® interface and has an integral redundancy controller for 1+1 and 2+1 operation (for use with external R1000HH(Ka), R2000HH(Ka) switch units), also compatible with the RCUH100/ RCUH200 series 1+1/ 2+1 redundancy controllers. For N+1 systems the RCU1002(Ka) series is offered.
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.
