Paradise Datacom’s Compact Outdoor (C) series SSPAs bring high power solid state transmit amplifiers right to the antenna’s feed. Designed for antenna-mount applications, the Compact Outdoor series SSPAs deliver the highest uplink powers available per unit volume and weight offered anywhere in solid state technology. Packaged for outdoor use, these amplifiers are entirely self-contained with on board power supply, cooling and monitor and control systems.
C-Band - 30W, 40W, 50W, 75W, 100W, 140W, 200W, 250W and 300W
Ku-Band - 20W, 26W, 35W, 40W, 50W, 70W, 100W and 125W
X-Band - 25W, 35W, 60W, 75W, 100W, 140W, 200W and 250W
S-Band - 50W, 100W, 200W, 300W
Paradise Datacom offers C-, X-, and Ku-Band amplifiers with an integrated L-Band Block Up Converter. The L-Band units utilize Paradise Datacom’s proprietary ZBUCTM technology. The addition of a ZBUCTM to a Compact Outdoor SSPA typically increases the gain by 2-4 dB. The advantages of ZBUCTM technology include:
ZBUCTM can detect and switch to an externally supplied reference.
Optional internal high stability (10MHz) reference.
ZBUCTM can lock to an externally supplied reference of 5, 10, 20, 25, or 50 MHz without modification.
ZBUCTM can accept a wide range of external reference power (-10dBm to +5 dBm)
ZBUCTM can accept FSK monitor and control signal via the IFL for complete amplifier remote control.
Fibre Optic Interface
Paradise Datacom offers an Outdoor Fiber Optic Converter Module (OFM-1000) for the Compact Outdoor SSPA which interfaces with a rack mountable Fiber Optic to L Band Transceiver (RCPF-1000).
The 1RU Indoor Fiber Optic to L Band Transceiver complements the Compact Outdoor Amplifier for a complete Optical interface for the amplifier.
What distinguishes the Paradise Datacom Fiber Optic solution is the ability to transmit and receive not only the L-Band IFL, but also a 10 MHz reference signal and an FSK signal that provides complete remote control of the amplifier. When equipped with a Paradise Datacom PD25 L-Band modem, a complete base-band to optical interface is realized.
A system utilizing a Fiber Optic link can have an IFL length in excess of 1km. An optical link is also desirable in areas in which L-Band interference can degrade the system’s performance.
