Motorola C8U-L Upconverter

The Commander 8 Upconverter (C8U) is a next generation headend Upconverter which builds on the award winning success of the Commander 6 Upconverter. The C8U has industry leading performance and features and is an ideal solution for both analog and digital headend and hub locations. Two frequency agile models, the C8U-L (50 to 600 MHz) and the C8U-H (550 to 1000 MHz), cover all current and future broadband frequency requirements up to 1 GHz, with a convenient 50 MHz frequency overlap between models.

The C8U consists of dual independent Upconverters in a reliable single rack unit (1RU) package, avoiding thermal and mating problems while providing space efficiency. A bright, wide two-line vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) provides access to all upconverter controls and is accessed via a convenient menu system. Front panel access to independent RF and IF test points is provided. Easy rear panel fuse access is also provided.

Each independent upconverter in the C8U incorporates three switchable IF inputs for redundancy, emergency alert or programming purposes, facilitating operational flexibility. These IF sources may be switched automatically or manually. The C8U is network management ready and is compatible with SNMP Network Management Systems via the LIFEnetTM proxy. It is also compatible with Motorola's Headend Control Software (HCS).
