Configuration Guide
8 and 16 W Mini-BUC
Configure your 4900 Series Ku-Band Mini-BUC
Configuring your BUC is easy. For this product, most of the configuration is
predetermined. After deciding the required output level, all that is left is to indicate
whether LAN is required, which frequency range is needed, and whether the
internal reference option is required. Instructions follow:
Box 1: BUC Power Level
- Enter 4908 for 8 watt BUC
- Enter 4916 for 16 watt BUC
Box 2: LAN Option placeholder
- Enter “L” for BUCs with LAN option selected
- LEAVE BLANK if the LAN option is not selected Box 4: Frequency range (within Ku-band)
- Enter “S” for 14.00 to 14.50 GHz
- Enter “E” for 13.75 to 14.50 GHz
Box 8: Internal reference
-Enter “R” only if internal reference option is selected
-LEAVE BLANK if internal reference option is not selected
