The AM-9446 Series consists of Ku-band transceivers for use in VSAT satellite earth stations. They operate from 13.75 to 14.50 GHz in the transmit path and from 10.95 to 12.75 GHz in the receive path. In the transmit mode, they provide an RF output power of 100 W with a gain of 70 dB, adjustable from 0 to 25 dB in 0.5 dB steps. In receive mode, they provide gain of 60 dB. The radio can be controlled via a PC using RS-232/485 interfaces, a modem with an FSK interface, or a hand-held terminal with an RS-232 interface. These transceivers are available in weather-protected IP65-rated housings that measure 355 x 205 x 175 mm and require an AC supply of 110/230 V or a DC supply of 48 V and consume less than l kW of power.
