AtlanTecRF's new Ruggedised, Portable Loop Test Translator makes all weather Satcom RF Testing a reality

AtlanTecRF, a leading global RF and microwave components and equipment manufacturer, today launched a ruggedised version of its Portable Loop Test Translator.

Taking its unique portability of RF satellite communications a step further, AtlanTecRF's LRU series of Loop Test Translators come in a high visibility ruggedised housing and are designed specifically for antenna site range and other field applications.

With models covering Ka Band and Ku Band for Tx-Rx, Tx-L and L-Rx testing and monitoring the LTTs are connected to appropriate system ports and controlled either locally with convenient frequency and attenuation up/down touch buttons with clear LCD readout or remotely via GUI.

Battery power on these units is designed for up to 24 hours continuous operation and the battery charge is integral, requiring 100-240v, 50/60 Hz ports for charging.

Frequency steps are 25MHz as standard with options down to 1KHz and there is a choice of alternative ranges from 0-30dB to 0-60dB in either 0.25dB or 1.0dB steps.

The robust plastic housing is completely weatherproof when closed and comes with a convenient handle for loading into equipment vehicles for transportation to remote locations.

All units can be operated with a choice of either an internal high stability OCXO or an external 10MHz system reference.

"When you are out in the field testing equipment you don't want the additional hassle of always having to make sure your loop test translator is dry. With our ruggedised, portable units that isn't a problem as the plastic housing is totally waterproof when closed", commented AtlanTecRF's C.E.O Geoff Burling.
