FDU-160i Advanced Frequency Distribution Amplifier

The FDU-160i is a high performance signal distribution amplifier designed for use with high precision time and frequency sources.

  • Network Enabled Frequency Distribution Amplifier
  • Dual Frequency Inputs with Auto Failover
  • Low Phase Noise Reference Frequency Outputs
  • Programmable per channel amplitude
  • SNMP V3 Protocols
  • 1U 19” rack mount
  • Redundant Hot Swap Power Supplies

The FDU-160i is contained in a compact IU rackmount chassis. The FDU-160i accepts two sets
of inputs, comprising the reference frequency (typically10MHz) and status from the source.

The FDU-160i provides automatic changeover should one of the on-line source inputs fail. Manual source select override is available on the front panel, or through the Ethernet interface.

A variety of status indicators are located on the front panel for instant visual feedback, together with manual controls for source selection.

A 10/100 baseT Ethernet interface provides full control over the functionality of the system, including reference selection and output amplitude (on a per channel basis).

User control of the unit is via a built-in Web Browser with user-friendly graphical interface, or via SNMP for system applications.

Applications for the FDU-160i include secure communications systems, satellite ground stations, digital television broadcasting and any system requiring highly reliable frequency outputs.
