Ultra Electronics DNE Technologies launches a satellite fiber link (SFL) module set for the CV-MCU2+ platform that is being offered as an alternative alternative to coaxial cable for transmitting L-band signals between a satellite terminal and antenna.

The SFL modules enable longer RF transmission distances while retaining a high level of signal quality. This enables users to move satellite terminals and associated equipment into protected areas while the antenna can be placed in the best location for transmission.

Aside from improved drive distances, users can also benefit from electrical isolation, immunity to interference (EMI/RFI/lightning), and improved security of information that fiber optic signalling provides. The SFL modules offer the widest dynamic range of operation, seamlessly passing L-band signals without restricting the performance of the satellite modems. The programmable RF input range allows the user to configure for any satellite terminal equipment without calibration.

The CV-MCU2+ SFL modules will be generally available in March 2011. Fully configured systems range from $11,000 to $14,000.
