FDU 160i : Advanced Frequency Distribution Unit

The FDU-160i Frequency Distribution Unit is a programmable frequency distribution platform offered with dual redundant hot swap PSUs and a number of frequency based functional variants. Applications include secure communications systems, satellite ground stations, digital television broadcasting.

The FDU-160i Frequency Distribution Unit is a high quality, programmable frequency distribution platform offered with dual redundant hot swap PSUs and a number of frequency based functional variants.  Applications for the FDU-160i include secure communications systems, satellite ground stations, digital television broadcasting and any application requiring highly reliable frequency outputs and/or where networking capability and programming is a requirement.

The FDU-160i base unit model has sixteen short circuit proof, low phase noise sine wave outputs (typically 10MHz) grouped as 2 banks of 8, available at the rear panel via BNC connectors, driven in response to one of two independent  and isolated (Ref A & Ref B) signal source reference inputs.  Each reference input is capable of driving all 16 outputs.

Each output has a network programmable amplitude and reference signal assignment along with fully independent status checking and fault condition reporting via the SNMPv2c trap based network interface and rear panel D type connectors.  Once selected, reference signal sources are automatically switched over should a reference fail with the facility to pre-program the system response and reversionary timings once the normally assigned reference is restored.  A three-position front panel switch facilitates the manual override selection of either reference A or reference B. With automatic mode selected, each output will be driven by the programmatically assigned reference.

Front panel indicators show the status of the input selection and output condition along with power status indication. Each of the sixteen outputs is continually monitored and should an output fail for any reason, then a group alarm fault indicator will illuminate and trigger a rear panel fault alarm signal that may be used by external equipment to modify the reference and output signal routing and selection.
