MODEL 2017-95 Up/Downconverter
1.0 General
1.1 Equipment Description
The 2017-95 L-band Up/Downconverter converts 70 MHz to 250-950 MHz (Up) and 250-950 MHz to 70 MHz
(Down) in 1 MHz steps with low group delay and flat frequency response. Synthesized local oscillators (LO)
provide frequency selection. Multi-function push button switches select the RF frequency, gain, and other
parameters. Front panel LEDs provide indication of DC power (green), PLL alarm for up and downconverters
(red), remote operation (yellow), and Upconverter mute (yellow). Gain can be manually controlled over a -10 to
+30 dB range for the Upconverter and over a 0 to +50 dB range for the Downconverter as adjusted by the front
panel multi-function push-button switches. Remote operation allows selection of frequency and gain. Parameter
selection and frequency and gain settings appear on the LCD display. Connectors are BNC female for IF and
the optional external reference input and output, and Type F female for RF. LNB or SSPB +24 VDC and 10
MHz reference can be inserted on the RF lines as added options. A high stability (±0.01ppm) option is also
available. It is powered by a 100-240 ±10% VAC power supply and housed in a 1.75” x 19” x 16” 1RU chassis.

the operating ambient temperature of the rack may be greater than room ambient temperature.
Therefore, consideration should be given to Tmra.
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.

1. Menu/Execute - Any change to the programming of the unit must be initiated by
pressing the Menu/Execute switch and completed by pressing the Menu/Execute switch.
2. Horizontal Switch - This switch is mounted so its movement is horizontal and moves the cursor
left or right.
3. Vertical Switch - This switch is mounted so its movement is vertical and has two functions:
a. During frequency , gain, input level changes, the vertical movement will raise or lower the
number in the direction of the arrows.
b. For other functions such Mute on/off, the vertical switch will alternately turn
the function on or off regardless of the direction operated.

2.5.4 Frequency Changes
At any time during the modification process, if you have made a mistake and do not wish to save the changes
you have made, do not press the Menu/Execute switch; simply do nothing for approximately 12 seconds, and
the system will return to the normal operating mode or scroll to “R” and push the menu/Execute switch and
select “NO” in the “SAVE SETTINGS?” window.
To change the FREQUENCY:
Operate the Menu/Execute switch until you get to the menu item you want to change (see Figure 2.4 for
the sequence of menu options). The following display is for changing the Upconverter frequency:
UP F = 435
R
Pressing the Up/Down switch down will toggle the display to:
UP F = 545
R
By using the horizontal rocker switch the cursor can be moved left or right.
UP F = 545
R
NOTE: CHANGES DO NOT TAKE PLACE ON FREQUENCY UNTIL YOU GO TO THE SAVE
MENU AND INDICATE YOU WANT TO SAVE THE CHANGES.
When the display indicates the value desired you can push the Menu/Execute switch to the next item:
UP INLVL = -20
R
NOTE: CHANGES TAKE PLACE ON LEVEL AND GAIN IMMEDIATELY BUT DO NOT GET
SAVED UNTIL YOU GO TO THE SAVE MENU AND INDICATE YOU WANT TO SAVE THE
CHANGES.
OR you can scroll to “R”, push the Menu/Execute switch to get to:
SAVE SETTINGS?
YN
Selecting Y will save the new settings. Selecting N will revert to the previous settings.
Pushing the Menu/Execute switch then takes you to the :
U F = 475
G=+10.0
D F = 625
G=+20.0
Figure 2.4 shows all the menu items and how to make changes.

optimize spurious and should be made as accurately as possible:
UP INLVL = -20
R
Pressing the Up/Down switch to change the level in 1 dB steps and then push the Menu/Execute switch
to get to the Gain setting:
UP G = +20.0
R
By using the horizontal rocker switch the cursor can be moved left or right .
Pressing the Up/Down switch down will toggle the display digit selected until you have the desired gain.
NOTE: THE GAIN WILL BE CHANGED AS YOU ADJUST THE NUMBERS. HOWEVER, THE
VALUE WILL NOT BE STORED UNTIL YOU INDICATE YES IN THE SAVE SETTINGS
WINDOW. DO NOT SET A GAIN THAT WOULD EXCEED A 0 dBm OUTPUT LEVEL.
When the display indicates the value desired you can push the Menu/Execute switch to the next item
OR you can scroll to “R”, push the Menu/Execute switch to get to:
SAVE SETTINGS?
YN
Selecting Y will save the new settings. Selecting N will revert to the previous settings.
