The KU LNC 8085 C PRO converts the RF range of 8 ... 8.5 GHz into the IF range of 200 ... 1300 MHz. In addition to the four fixed programmed LO frequencies of 7200/7400/7600/7800 MHz, it has as a special feature a function to manually select the LO in 10 MHz steps. This allows you to individually control your desired IF range.

The two-stage adjustable gain of either typ. 37 dB or typ. 50 dB with a low noise figure of typ. 0.8 dB makes the flexible converter especially attractive for deep space applications.

As a proven tradition, the converter has again been built into our rugged and waterproof housing.
