MODEL 2116-14T12 Block Translator
1.0 General
1.1 Equipment Description
The 2116-14T12 Block Translator converts 14.0 - 14.5 GHz to 11.7 - 12.2 GHz with a local oscillator at 2.3
GHz. Front panel LEDs provide indication of external 10 MHz (yellow), PLL alarm (red), and DC power
(green). The gain is -30 dB to Output #1 and -50 to Output #2. Connectors are SMA female for RF and BNC
female for the external reference input and reference output. A three-way switch controls which 10 MHz
reference is being used. In the INT position, the internal reference is used, in the EXT position, the external
reference is used, and in the AUTO position, the internal reference is used unless a +3 dBm ± 3 dB, 10MHz
reference signal is connected to the external reference input. The 2116 is powered by a 100-240 ±10% VAC
power supply, and housed in a 1 3/4” X 19“ X 14” rack mount chassis.

1.3 Environmental Use Information
A. Rack-Mounting - To mount this equipment in a rack, please refer to the installation instructions
located in the user manual furnished by the manufacturer of your equipment rack.
B. Mechanical loading - Mounting of equipment in a rack should be such that a hazardous condition
does not exist due to uneven weight distribution.
C. Elevated operating ambient temperature - If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly,
the operating ambient temperature of the rack may be greater than room ambient temperature.
Therefore, consideration should be given to Tmra. (Maximum Recommended Ambient Temperature)
D. Reduced air flow - Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow
required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised. Additional space between unit
may be required.
E. Circuit Overloading - Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply
circuit and the effect that overloading of circuits could have on over current protection and supply wiring.
Appropriate consideration of equipment name plate rating should be used, when addressing this concern.
F. Reliable Earthing - Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained. Particular
attention should be given to supply connections other than direct connection to the Branch
(use of power strips).
G. Top Cover - There are no serviceable parts inside the product so, the Top Cover should not be removed.
If the Top Cover is removed the ground strap and associated screw MUST BE REINSTALLED
prior to Top Cover screw replacement. FAILURE TO DO this may cause INGRESS and/or EGRESS
emission problems.

2.0 Installation
2.1 Mechanical
The 2116-14T12 consists of one RF PCB housed in a 1 RU (1 3/4 inch high) by 14 inch deep chassis. A
switching, ± 12, +24, +5 VDC power supply provides power for the assemblies. The 2116-14T12 can be
secured to a rack using the 4 holes on the front panel. Figure 2.0 shows how the 2116-14T12 is assembled.

Connect a -30 dBm to -10 dBm signal to RF INPUT (J101) (Figure 2.1).
Connect RF OUT 1 and RF OUT 2 (J102 and J103) to the external equipment.
Connect a 100-240 ±10% VAC, 47 - 63 Hz to AC connector on the back panel.
Be sure DS1 (green, DC Power) is on and DS2 (red, Alarm) is off (Figure 2.2).
Select either INT (for internal 10MHz ref), AUTO (for internal 10MHz ref UNLESS am external
10MHz, 3 dBm signal is connected to J2), or EXT (for external 10MHz, 3 dBm ref that is inserted at J2)
using the rear panel 3-way switch, S1 (Figure 2.1).
6. If EXT is selected or AUTO is selected and there is a 10MHz, 3 dBm signal at J2, check that DS3
(yellow, Ext 10MHZ) is on (Figure 2.2).
7. Check that a 10MHz, 3 dBm ±3 dB signal is present at the 10MHZ REF OUTPUT (J8) (Figure 2.1).
8. AC Fuse - The fuse is a 5 mm X 20 mm, 2 amp slow blow (Type T) and is inserted in the far slot in the
drawer below the AC input as shown in Figure 2.3. There is a spare fuse in the near slot. If a fuse
continues to open, the power supply is most likely defective.
