We provide the full Peak Communications range of IF, L, C, X, Ku and Ka band frequency conversion products. These are manufactured to the highest quality standards for use in both commercial and military flyaway, truck or fixed earth station applications. The products are available in rack or remote mount version in either a standard or high performance grade and provide high stability and low phase noise. The equipment is known for very high MTBF times, typically well over 100,000 hours, giving you over 10 years of worry free operation. Over 15,000 products are in service with very satisfied customers over the past 20 years.

We also provide custom built frequency converter equipment to suit customer specific applications.

Agile Frequency ConvertersIF to L, C, X, Ku, DBS and S-band
L, C, X, Ku, DBS and S-band to IF
Various LO stability options
Indoor or outdoor mount versions.
Beacon ReceiversBeacon Tracking Receivers and Uplink Power Control Systems
Block ConvertersL-band to IF, C, X, Ku, DBS or Ka-band
IF, C, X, Ku, DBS or Ka-band to L-band
Single range and multi-range options
Indoor and outdoor mount versions
Distribution SwitchingDesigned to provide high quality signal switching, primarily for satellite
Earth station monitoring and distribution applications. They include latching switches which maintain the RF path configuration in the event of a power failure, rather than pin diode switches which are common in lower grade designs.
4:1 to 32:1 configurations for IF, L and S-band switching.
Line Amplifiers & Gain ControlAmplifying IF, L, S, C, X, Ku or DBS signals
High gain flatness and stability performance
Noise SourcesDesigned to provide amplified broadband white Gaussian Noise, primarily for satellite receiver robustness testing.
Flat spectral response performance
Manually Variable Attenuator options for local control of output level.
Power Supply & Driver UnitsDesigned to supply DC power and/or a reference frequency to a remote mounted Block DownConverter (BDC), Low Noise Block (LNB) or Block UpConverter (BUC). These units are ideal in the situation where the connecting modulator cannot supply a suitable external DC supply or when the modulator reference frequency is either unavailable or has insufficient stability for the application.
Redundancy SwitchingSwitching of L, S, C, X, Ku, DBS and Ka-band signals.
Switch configurations from 1+1 to 8+1
Indoor and outdoor mount versions.
Reference Generation & DistributionDesigned to provide highly stable reference generation, primarily for satellite Earth station applications.
Reference signals of 5, 10, 50 or 100MHz with external reference input.
4-way, 8-way, 12-way or 16-way outputs
Splitters & Combiners2-way to 32-way passive or active IF/L-band splitter and combiner
High gain flatness and low Noise Figure
Test Loop TranslatorsTranslating S, C, X, Ku and DBS-band TX frequency bands to L-band or the corresponding C, X, Ku and DBS-band RX bands.
Ideally suited for system integration testing or TX uplink monitoring applications.
High stability and excellent phase noise.
Uplink Power ControlMeasures the ‘link loss’ from a Satellite Beacon signal and subsequently automatically control a variable attenuator in the uplink chain.
Single or multichannel control
High performance; low insertion loss, high gain stability & flatness
Beacon receiver output and key parameter 24hr ‘history’ recording facility
Scintillation option offering rapid compensation changes for typically low look angle satellites.
