IBUC 2G 100W X-Band Intelligent Block Upconverter

The Terrasat IBUC 2G 100W X-Band GaN is a revolutionary Block Upconverter with advanced features such as a Gallium Nitride amplifier for increased efficiency. Integrated fully automatic gain control and ALC comes standard on all BUCs with all second generation GaN BUCs

The X-Band 100W IBUC 2G Series also provides new interfaces for connecting you to extensive M&C facilities for network management or local access. This powerful M&C enables trouble‐free commissioning with easy, point‐and‐click installation/configuration, continuous verification of performance with time‐stamped alarm history and simplified monitoring of terminal status

IBUC-2G comes with a complete set of diagnostic tools including:

X-Band IBUC 2 Features 10 MHz input detector
X-Band IBUC 2 Features Input voltage and current monitoring
X-Band IBUC 2 Features Transmit L‐band input level detector
X-Band IBUC 2 Features Transmit RF output level detector
X-Band IBUC 2 Features User configurable thresholds and alarms

Unique to the IBUC-2G are internal AGC and ALC functions that satisfy demanding applications with stringent specifications.
