MITEQ—Weather Compensation (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Just released is MITEQ’s UPC2 Uplink Power Control Unit, a rack-mountable unit that is designed for geo-stationary satellite communication systems.

This unit adjusts the strength of uplink signals to compensate for varying weather conditions. The UPC2 can be setup completely from the front panel or over a remote bus via a host computer. All monitor and control functions are accessible at the front panel as well as over the remote bus. The UPC2 protocol set is backward-compatible with the well-known MITEQ UPC-A and UPC-L products. As an option, MITEQ offers the UPC2 with Remote Site Diversity Switching.
