Product ManualManual

The 7706LT is a fiber optic transmitter for RF signals in the extended L-Band or wider frequency range. It accepts a single RF input on coaxial cable and provides a single output for optical transmission. An RF monitor output provides a convenient means of obtaining peak satellite signal strength, or additional signal distribution.

Gain may be adjusted manually or managed automatically via AGC. 13/17V DC adjustable LNB power with 22kHz tone is also provided.

  • Extended frequency response for extended L-Band and other signals
  • Protocol independent design - transports all modulation formats
  • LNB power with selectable 13/17V DC
  • LNB current limit & short circuit protection
  • 22kHz tone on/off for LNB local oscillator control
  • RF monitor output for signal peaking and signal distribution
  • Manual gain and AGC modes for tuning optimal CNR performance
  • Fiber link provides electrical isolation between antenna and facility, mitigating ground loop and lightning issues
  • The 7706LT occupies one card slot and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity, or a standalone enclosure which holds a single module.
