C-Band Single FCS101Synthesized Frequency Up-Converter


Synthesized frequency converters from FCS101 series are packaged in a compact standard 1RU enclosure. Their built-in instrumentation detector associated with discrete power thresholds alarms allows evolved system monitoring configurations. The straightforward front panel operation, and RS232 terminal mode enables quick on-site setup Offered remote management interfaces ensure complete flexibility of integration into existing or new installations. The user-friendly front panel or the RS485 remote interface will provide full set-up and fault monitoring facilities Ethernet option will allow the operator to pilot system operation either through SNMP or Web based interface. Delivered spectral purity, low phase noise and stability exceed the requirements of all major international satellite network operators. The system reference guaranteeing conversion function‰’s accuracy can optionally be provided externally, internally as a highly stable temperature compensated oscillator, or with auto-detection capacity that will use internal reference only in the absence of an externally provided one.

Standard Features

  • Built-in instrumentation RMS output detector
  • Adjustable output power threshold alarms
  • Outperforms IESS 308/309 phase noise by 5dB
  • Superior linearity
  • 125 kHz step size
  • 40dB attenuation control range
  • On-site reference aging correction capability

  • 10 operating gain and frequency presets


The FCS101 range of synthesized frequency converters operates in VSAT, SCPC Networks, DSNG/SNG, DVB-RCS and Hub systems. This makes them an ideal choice for large earth stations requiring cost effective solutions while maintaining equipment configuration flexibility. The lightweight and compact design makes the FCB100 converter as an ideal solution for mobile truck or flyaway DSNG systems. It‰’s rugged construction can even meet the demands of military installations. The FCB100 range of frequency converters provides an industry leading MTBF of over 120,000 hours.


  • 1kHz step size
  • 30dB maximum gain
  • 75 ohms IF impedance
  • Group Delay equalization
  • Ethernet port with SNMP and Web interface
  • Autosensing Internal /External Reference
  • Input Monitor and Output Monitor
  • 1:1 Redundant Ready
  • 1:N Redundant Ready


The FCS-100 converter series redundancy options allow their incorporation in redundant system from 1:1 up to 1:12. 1:1 redundancy is performed with an additional redundancy shelf for a system size of 3RU. Higher order redundancy operates through a redundancy controller shelf with the extra benefit of a single bus for complete system M&C. Given each Switch Panel can handle up to four (4) converter units; a complete 1:12 system requires a space of 17U.
