Power Supply
Power supply switching
Derives power for itself from the IFL input N-type connector (modem) port or from external DC mini 2-pin
connector port (12 to 60 V DC negative earth)
Can supply maximum 5 A DC through IFL to power LNBs or LBUCs (16 W Ku-Band/20 W C-Band). Cannot
supply power to BUCs/LNBs via the external 2-pin mini connector port.
Automatic with level detection – switches to port with highest voltage
Power supply ripple
External IFL DC power supply ripple must not exceed 5 V p-p
Reverse polarity protected. Negative earth on both ports.
