Product ManualManual

The 2400ODU-8 is a compact, weatherproof enclosure that provides a convenient, pre-integrated package for fiber transport of satellite and other signals within the extended L-Band range. The 2400ODU-8 can house up to 8x active fiber transmit (2408LT) or receive (2406LR) modules and an 8-channel power supply (2400PSUA-8).

The 2400ODU comes with mounting brackets to be conveniently mounted directly on or near the antenna structure.

This turnkey solution provides fiber transport of up to 8x RF signals over individual fibers or multiplexed over a single fiber, and power the connected LNBs.

The 2400ODU-8 also features built-in surge protectors for lightning protection and has options for integrated fiber multiplexer, 10MHz reference transport, RF protection switching, splitters, Bias-Tee and more.

  • Minimizes length of coax run from LNB
  • Fiber link provides electrical isolation between antenna and facility, mitigating ground loop and lightning issues
  • Convenient, time-saving pre-integrated package
  • Weather-sealed enclosure with durable powder coat finish
  • Wide operating temperature range
  • Lightning protection included on RF inputs/outputs
  • Knockouts provided for termination of AC power and fiber conduits
  • Each fiber module provides a coaxial monitoring output
  • LNB current limit and short circuit protection
  • LNB current monitoring for advance warning of LNB failure
  • Serial and Ethernet data transceivers available for remote antenna control, monitoring and other applications
  • All modules are field-replaceable and hot-swappable
  • SmartMON™ monitoring without a separate data connection
  • Redundant power supply
