AMP 2150

L-Band Line Amplifier

 General Description:

The AMP 2150 series of L-band line amplifiers provide high gain as well as optional DC path continuity. These amplifiers are manufactured utilizing highly reliable surface mount technology and advanced microstrip RF circuitry and are typically deployed in satellite telecommunication networks to compensate for L-band signal paths through long coaxial cable runs. Housed in either a standard 1 RU rack mount enclosure or a rugged weatherproof extruded housing, the AMP 2150 series amplifiers are the optimum choice for any L-band satellite communications application.

Features & Benefits:

  • High (adjustable) gain over full bandwidth
  • Housed in a rugged, weatherproof extruded aluminum enclosure or in a 1 RU rack mount chassis
  • Passes a 10 MHz reference signal
  • Sensing capability
  • LNB power available
