Two New LPOD BUC Models are Available

We expanded our LPOD BUC product family with the introduction of two new models, the 300 Watt LPOD and the 16 Watt LPOD-R. With the introduction of the higher power 300 Watt C-Band model, the LPOD is now available in a wider range of power levels and bands, including 20-125 Watt Ku-Band, 25-250 Watt X-Band and 25-300 Watt C-Band. The new 16 Watt P1dB / 20W Psat Ku-Band LPOD-R is the market’s smallest and smartest 16 Watt unit. Requiring only 110 Watts of power capability from a 24/48VDC BUC power supply contained within the modem, it greatly expands the range of throughput available from existing TDMA or SCPC modems.
