Section 1. Introduction
The ANASAT-Ku transceiver upconverts the
modulators 70 MHz IF output to an RF signal in the
14 GHz range for transmission, and downconverts
the 12 GHz received RF signal to a 70 MHz IF signal
for use by the demodulator.
The PA uses Internally-Matched Field-Effect
Transistors (IMFET) to achieve highly linear power
and gain with minimal intermodulation distortion
(IMD) products.
High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMT)
and Gallium-Arsenide Field-Effect Transistors (GaAs
FET) enable the Low-Noise Down-Converter
(LNC) to achieve a noise temperature better than
80K.
Figure 1-1 The ANASAT-Ku VSAT transceiver (2W
version shown)

The ANASAT-Ku VSAT series Ku-band


transceivers are designed for continuous outdoor
duty in all types of environments. Ideally suited for
SCPC, MCPC, and DAMA applications, the ANASAT-Ku series transceivers transmit in the 14 GHz
frequency range and receive in the 12 GHz range.

The transmit (TX) and receive (RX) synthesizers are locked to an oven controlled, high-stability
crystal oscillator (OCXO) and can provide 1 MHz
frequency selection step sizes over the entire bandwidth. TX and RX frequency selection is completely
independent for extra flexibility.

The ANASAT-Ku VSAT transceivers integrate all necessary functions, including the solid-state
power amplifier (PA), into a small, highly integrated
outdoor package. The only cabling required to the
indoor plant are the IF and AC power cables. The
LNC connects to the transceiver with a single coaxial cable.
Designed to interface with any 70 MHz modem, the ANASAT-Ku VSAT transceiver may be
used in a wide variety of communication networks.
The earth stations may be configured in Star, Mesh,
or Ring networks and with the optional Station Management System (SMS) tied to a PC, you can monitor and control all local transceivers and other network compatible equipment.

Safety Precautions
General
Observe normal safety precautions
when operating this equipment.

!
Ensure the ANASAT -Ku transceiver and
LNC are properly grounded. Do not rely on coaxial
cable shields for the ground connection.

If the cover is removed from any ANACOM


product, ensure that all:
gaskets are intact and free of damage prior
to reinstallation
mounting screws are properly installed
Ensure all connectors are properly waterproofed.

Power Supply
Confirm that AC Power is disconnected before
removing the transceiver or LNC cover.

Transceiver
Take adequate precautions to ensure the
ANASAT-Ku transceiver does not transmit a signal
until it has been properly connected and set up for
authorized frequencies and power levels. The transmitter is normally shipped from the factory with TX
ON!

Transmitter RF output power levels


are adequate to cause blindness or
other serious injury to body tissues.
Use caution when working around
the transceiver or antenna when the
transmitter is active.

Power Amplifier
Be sure the transceiver TX OUT port is properly terminated prior to operation. Ensure all the correct waveguide gaskets are used to prevent water
damage.
TO ENSURE PROTECTION OF PERSONNEL
AND EQUIPMENT, USE CARE DURING ANTENNA INSTALLATION AND WHENEVER
WORKING ON OR AROUND THE SYSTEM.
Installation

3095604

LNC
Be sure the LNC unit is properly terminated
prior to operation. Ensure all the correct waveguide
gaskets are used to prevent water damage.

Site Considerations
Peculiar installation requirements of any particular site is the responsibility of the system operator. ANACOM can engineer an optional installation
mounting kit, customized for your site and hardware.
Contact ANACOM for details.

Antenna
The transceiver must be attached to some form
of mounting structure which is usually the antenna
feed boom or the antenna bracket structure. Specific
mounting procedures will depend on the antenna
used. The transceiver and LNC are designed to be
mounted on most antennas. Locate and install the
antenna according to the antenna manufacturers
instructions. Choose an area that is free of extraneous interference from motors and electronic equipment and has a clear line-of-sight from the antenna
to the satellite.
Lightning arrestors should be used at the site to
protect personnel and equipment. Size 3/0 or 4/0
stranded copper wire should be used to bond the
transceiver to the antenna frame and to the lightning
protection ground rod.

Power Requirements
The ANASAT-Ku transceiver requires a
power source which supplies 110 VAC or 220 VAC
at 50 or 60 Hz, through a circuit breaker. Size of circuit breaker depends on model. To assure uninterrupted service, some method of back-up AC power
is recommended. Installing surge arrestors and AC
power line filters will reduce voltage surges from the
AC power input. Provide an isolation filter to clean
up power line interference and/or voltage variations,
as required.
NOTE: AC TRANSIENTS AND SURGES MAY CAUSE DATA TRANSMISSION ERRORS AND LOSS OF SYNCHRONIZATION IN THE TRANSCEIVER SYNTHESIZERS
AND/OR THE EXTERNAL MODEM EQUIPMENT.

Transceiver Mounting
Considerations

Figure 2-1 shows a common installation example where the transceiver is mounted on the antenna feed support arm.

The ANASAT-Ku transceiver must be


mounted such that:

When mounting the transceiver, allow enough


room to adjust the antennas azimuth and elevation.
Throughout installation and during any polarization,
azimuth, or elevation adjustment, ensure the cables
and waveguide are not crimped or pinched.

1. Sufficient support is afforded the transceiver


to minimize the effects of antenna sway in
strong winds.
2. Air movement is possible across the heat
sink fins. Ideally, the fins should be aligned
vertically, but this is not required.
NOTE: The length (and associated RF losses)
of the interconnecting cables must be considered
when determining the location of the transceiver and
LNC.

Transceiver Mounting
The ANASAT-Ku transceiver is designed for
mounting in any position. For optimal heat sink action,
the heat sink fins should be vertical, or as nearly vertical as is practical. For transceivers equipped with a
fan, this suggestion does not apply.

Ku-BAND FEED

MOUNTING KIT

Figures 2-1a and 2-1b in next pages shows the


transceiver mounting for single thread.

Grounding
Electrical bonding (grounding) of the transceiver is required to prevent possible damage from
lightning or other induced electrical surges.
The transceiver is provided with both an M3,
and a #8 ground point. It is recommended that 000
AWG copper wire or copper braid be used to bond
this unit to the earth ground (grounding rod) using the
most direct (shortest) route possible.

LNC/TR Filter Mounting


The LNC is shown in Figure 2-2. The LNC is
directly bolted to the antenna RX feed. An appropriate waveguide gasket must be included at the feed
point. Connect one end of the coaxial cable with
male N-connectors (included) to the LNC. Refer to
the note at the end of this section regarding watertight connections. Route the 10-foot cable to the
transceiver and connect to the LNC N-connector.
Longer cable lengths may be used under certain circumstances; contact ANACOM for details.

Caution: Never touch the ground-plane antenna pin found inside the wave-guide flange of the
LNC. The front-end preamp is susceptible to static
discharge.

Connections

2.

Referring to Figure 2-4, connect a section of


waveguide between the OMT transmit port
and the transceivers transmit output, TX
OUT. Waveguide should be attached to the
antenna feed per manufacturers instructions.
Ensure a gasket is fitted at each flange and
that the connections are weather-tight.

Cabling Requirements
Local regulations may require that cables in occupied buildings be installed in steel conduit. Local
government agencies may waive this requirement for
the use of Plenum cables, which are standard cables
entirely encased in solid Teflon. Check the codes in
your area.

3.

70MHz Modem
Attach a coaxial cable with male N-connectors between the transceivers TX IF (see
Figure 2-5) and the modulator IF OUTPUT.
Make sure that the connections are weathertight.

Section 3. Operation
Preliminary Steps

Frequency Programming

After the ANACOM-Ku hardware is mounted and verified, the antenna must be aimed toward
the desired satellite. Follow the antenna/mount manufacturers instructions, using coordinates provided by
the satellite operator. Do not transmit until you
have received authorization from the satellite network operation center, and a transmit power level
from its engineering staff.

TXC; RXC

AnaCom Transceivers are shipped


from the factory with TX ON as
active.

Terminal Connection and


Configuration
Autolink
The AnaCom M&C feature automatic baudrate
sensing on the serial ports. If wrong baudrate is detected, the M&C will drop to 1200 baud and wait for
user to move to 1200 baud. AnaCom provides a CD
with both our Supervisor and Supervisor Jr. software on it, that will establish a link with the ODU
automatically, regardless of the last used settings.
Connect a terminal or computer running terminal emulation software to either serial port. Generally, COM 1 (using the 6-pin circular connector) is
used for on-site maintenance and control. COM 0 is
often used in its RS-485 mode, with multi-unit, packetized protocol and differential mode signals good for
moderately long distance (up to 4000 feet or 1200m)
remote control. Either port or either serial protocol
can be used to accomplish setup. Set the terminal to
1200 baud, eight data bits, no parity, and one stop bit
(1200,N,8,1 protocol). Refer to Appendix C for wiring diagrams for the COM ports.

ANACOM ANASATKu Transceiver

The transmit and receive frequencies are set


independently using the TXCHAN (TXC) and RXCHAN (RXC) commands. Refer to Appendix E for
a table of channel numbers versus frequency.
NOTE: Appendix E assumes an IF of 70 MHz for
both TX IN and RX OUT. Add or subtract any difference between the actual IF and 70 MHz to determine the exact RF frequency employed.

TXF; RXF
Direct frequency entry in MHz can also be
done by typing TXF**** or RXF**** where ****
are the transceiver frequencies desired. This also
assumes exactly 70MHz (or 140 MHz) TXIF &
RXIF.
Operating frequencies for standard Ku-Band
channels are calculated with the following formulas:
fTX = TX IFIN + 13929 + Ch#
fRX = RX IFOUT + 10879 + Ch#

MHz
MHz

For negative channels:


fTX = TX IFIN

+ 13930 + Ch#

MHz

For example, if the following commands are


given to the transceiver:
RXCHAN 50
TXCHAN 50
Then with a TX IN intermediate frequency of
72.5 MHz the result is an output frequency of
14,051.5 MHz. Likewise, with an RX OUT IF of
67.5 MHz , then the received RF frequency is
10,996.5 MHz.
Both fTX and fRX may be directly entered and
displayed via the M & C by using the TXFREQ and
RXFREQ commands. These commands will change

the terminal display from channel number to RF frequency. These frequencies assume an IF of exactly
70 MHz.

Please note that the fan, on units so equipped, is


thermostatically controlled and does not turn on when
the unit is very cold.

Antenna Adjustment

M & C Operation

Do not transmit while adjusting the


antenna position.

Follow the antenna manufacturers instructions


for antenna position adjustment. For final alignment,
contact the satellite operator and get the correct polarization, azimuth, and elevation of the satellite and
also confirm the desired transponder is operational.
Apply power to the ANASAT-Ku. While the
transceiver requires about 5 minutes for the OCXO
to reach full stability, antenna adjustments may be
performed by monitoring other signals, such as beacons, immediately.
Connect a spectrum analyzer to the RX IF output. Set the ANASAT-Ku to the desired frequency
using the RXCHAN (or RXFREQ) command, as
described above. While monitoring the output with a
spectrum analyzer, slowly sweep the antenna through
azimuth and elevation. Adjust antenna position for
maximum signal strength.

Terminal Display
The M & C terminal display gives a complete
accounting of transceiver alarms and status. The
display is sent to the terminal every 30 seconds. This
interval can be changed with the UTIMER command. (See Appendix A).
The top line shows the transceiver model and
serial number.
The second line gives the primary transceiver
operating parameters:
status of the TXREQ setting: ON or
OFF
ON indicates the transceiver will transmit
when all major transmitter alarms are cleared.
This is the normal setting.
OFF indicates the transmitter will not turn
on even if all alarms are clear.
Transmitter status is either TX ON AIR
or TX OFF AIR

Gain Adjustments
Transmitter Gain
After the transceiver has warmed up for at
least 5 minutes (OCXO warm-up) the transmitter
may be activated. Set the transmit gain to achieve
the desired output level (in dBm) with the transmit
gain control, TXGAIN. Output power is selectable in
1 dB steps. Smaller steps can be entered, for example: TXG 62.5 and the M&C will attempt to provide
that gain as closely as possible.
Maintaining proper output power is vital for
maximizing signal-to-noise ratios over the radio path.
Low power levels produce noisy signals; excessive
power robs downlink strength from other stations
sharing the transponder.

3095604

passband, must not exceed the modems maximum


rated input level. Account for IF cabling losses when
calculating the RXGAIN value.
RX IF output is monitored by the M & C unit;
a Summary alarm is generated if this output level
drops below a specific level (generally when the
LNC is not attached). The M & C uses an internal
detector on the RX output to monitor RX output
power. This is shown in the terminal display window
in dBm. The RX output power value shown is not
accurate enough to rely on for measuring the desired
signal. The detector is broadband and will respond to
ALL signals in the transponder, including noise.
Receiver gain setting is usually not as critical as
transmit gain: excessive gain may cause modem receiver overloading and result in distortion on the received signal; insufficient gain presents reduced signal-to-noise ratios. Ideal RX gain puts the desired IF
signal amplitude near the midpoint of the modem
AGC range.

Adjust the transmitter gain to attain the desired


output power level. Use a calibrated watt meter for
this task. The M&C gives an uncalibrated reading of
output power which is good for long term monitoring,
but it is not intended to replace a calibrated meter.

1. Using the terminal, configure the transceiver


to the proper frequency:

When transmitting multiple carriers, run the output power with an output back-off sufficient to meet
the spectral density mask requirements.

RXCHAN nnnn
TXCHAN nnn

Caution: It is recommended that the transmitter not be driven into saturation for long periods of
time. The input power in dBm plus the requested TX
gain in dB should not exceed the P1dB rating for the

Section 4. Theory of Operation


The ANASAT-Ku transceiver consists of five
major blocks, as shown in Figure 4-1. These blocks
are:
Low Noise Converter (LNC)
Transmit/Receive Converter
Power Amplifier (PA)
Monitor and Control Unit (M & C)
Universal Input switch-mode
power supply

Signal Path
Receive signals from the antenna feed through
waveguide into the Low Noise Converter (LNC),
with its integral Transmit Reject (TR) Filter, which
separates the transmit signal and receiver image frequencies. The LNC amplifies and mixes the Ku-band
receive signal, outputting an L-band IF signal to the
converter module. The receive converter portion of
the converter module synthesizes the proper mixer
frequencies for the second converter, which outputs
the (nominal) 70 MHz receive output at the RX IF
N-connector on the transceiver.
Transmit signals at (nominally) 70MHz are input to the TX IF N-connector on the transceiver.
This signal is double converted to the desired Kuband frequency in the converter module and output
to the linear power amplifier (PA). PA output of up
to 50W, depending upon transceiver version, feeds
the antenna.

tored. An active feedback negative bias voltage supply guarantees proper control of PA power.
Two LEDs, a flashing green indicating proper
operation and a red warning of a Summary alarm,
are mounted on the transceiver for status indication.

Low Noise Converter


The receive signal from the antennas feed
horn is fed via a WR-75 waveguide flange into the
LNC, which is bolted to the feed horn of the antenna. The LNC consists of two blocks: a Ku-band
low noise amplifier (LNA) and a block converter that
mixes the Ku-band receive signal with the local oscillator (LO) from the receive converter module to produce an L-band output. (See Figure 4.2)
The LNA consists of a three-stage GaAs FET
preamplifier. Negative gate bias for the GaAs FETs
is generated inside the block converter.
If the LNC has been purchased with the RF
port option, then the signal at its RF frequency is
available with about 20 dB of gain.
The amplified Ku-band signal is mixed with the
LO signal from the converter module in the transceiver. A filter passes the difference frequency and
outputs this L-band signal to an N-connector. A cable
carries this output to the converter module inside the
transceiver.
Only one coaxial cable is needed between the
transceiver and the LNC. This cable carries three
signals:
L-band signal output from the LNC
LO input from the converter
+13V DC power from the converter module.

Control and Power Systems


The microprocessor-based M & C unit monitors the transceivers parameters to ensure proper
operation and reliable, long term service. Two serial
ports provide local or remote terminal access.

Combination and separation are accomplished


with an inductor for the supply voltage and a pick-off
coupling for the LO.

Power distribution is controlled with each of


several supply voltages and currents carefully moni-

Figure 4-2. The LNC

Converter Module
The converter module is located inside the
transceiver and consists of two sections, the receive
converter and the transmit converter. The converter
module takes an extremely stable 10 MHz reference
signal from the Monitor & Control unit and synthesizes all necessary mixing frequencies.

Receive Converter Signal Path


The receive converter takes its input from the
LNC via an N-connector on the transceiver (refer to
Figure 4-3). A short coaxial cable connects the typeN connector on the heat sink to the converter unit
itself. A diplexer at this input allows this single connector to perform three functions: signal IF input
from the LNC, LO output to the LNC, and DC
power to the LNC.
The L-band receive signal is extracted by the
input diplexer and is filtered by a mechanically-tuned
6-pole filter. A single-stage amplifier provides +10 dB
of gain. Another mechanical filter cleans the signal
before it is mixed with an L-band LO frequency, producing the (nominal) 70 MHz receive output. An L-C
network selects only the 70 MHz mixer output and
passes this signal to a variable gain amplifier. This
variable gain amplifier is adjustable over a 15dB
ANACOM ANASATKu Transceiver

range and is operator-adjustable by terminal commands via the M & C unit. A final LC bandpass filter
connects the variable gain amplifier to the 50 Nconnector output on the transceiver. An external 50
to 75 transformer is available from ANACOM as
an option.
The +13V DC supply to the LNC is fused with
a self-resetting polyfuse. This polyfuse is located
on the M & C board.

Frequency Synthesizers
The converter module generates all necessary
frequencies with phase-locked-loop (PLL) synthesizers. All PLLs are referenced from a single 10 MHz
clock mounted on the M & C board. The master oscillator is a highly stable 10 MHz oven controlled
crystal oscillator (OXCO) accurate to 1 x 10-8 Hz (
0.01 Hz at 10MHz). This oscillator is fine tuned to
compensate for normal aging effects automatically
from the M & C unit.

Transmit Offset Loop


The first synthesized frequency is the L-band
offset loop signal that is used by the transmit converter. This signal is fed to the first transmit mixer.

Transmit Converter Signal Path

Construction

The Transmit converter takes the nominal 70


MHz signal input from a 50 N-connector on the
transceiver (refer to Figure 4-4). (Note: an external
75 to 50 transformer is available from
ANACOM as an option). This signal passes through
an LC filter and into the transmit variable gain amplifier. This amplifier is gain-adjusted by a control voltage from the M & C unit, and has a gain variation of
26dB in 1dB steps. Another LC bandpass filter removes any out-of-band noise and presents the signal
to the first transmit mixer. This mixer adds the offset
loop frequency to the TX IF, producing an S-band
output. This output passes through a mechanical filter
into the second gain block and then through another
mechanical filter.

The PA module is a highly linear amplifier built


on soft-board Duroid PC board substrate material
silver epoxied inside a machined aluminum block.
This assembly is bolted to the center of the transceiver heat sink for excellent thermal conductivity.
Power for each stage is provided via individual feedthroughs drilled into the machined block and has
separate ferrite bead isolation for each connection.
Aluminum bars securely fasten the soft board into
the cavity.

The S-band output is now applied to the second


transmit mixer, where it is combined with the 10 GHz
transmit synthesizer output and becomes a Ku-band
signal of the desired frequency. A mechanical
bandpass filter selects the proper mixer product and
applies it to a three-stage amplifier. A final mechanical filter is used before the transmit signal is applied
to the PA.

Power Amplifier
ANASAT-Ku series transceivers are available
in thirteen different versions, with maximum transmit
output powers of up to 125 watts.
Thirteen different power amplifier (PA) modules are employed to economically achieve the different output ratings.
NOTE: the 0 dBm transceiver has no power amplifier. The
up converter output is fed directly to the outside with a
type N-connector.

Theory of Operation

PA Module
The PA module takes its input from the transmit
converter on the converter module. This input handles
up to +10 dBm and is connected to the converter board
via semi-rigid cable using SMA connectors.
Good RF grounding and thermal properties are
assured by the use of Teflon (Duroid) PC board
substrate material which is permanently attached to
the cavity.
Transmit input is applied to a hybrid coupler
which feeds a balanced amplifier. A second hybrid
coupler converts this balanced output to a singleended input for the amplifier.
This drive power is fed into another hybrid coupler and on into the balanced final amplifier. This balanced output passes through another hybrid to combine the signal into a single-ended output which is fed
into a WR-75 waveguide flange that mates directly
to the PA module and bolts to the heat sink. A directional coupler monitors output characteristics and reports to the M & C unit.
Power for each stage of the higher power PAs
is individually filtered and applied through ferrite

Monitor and Control Unit


The monitor and control unit (M & C), Figures
4-6 and 4-7, is a microprocessor-based controller
providing transceiver diagnostics, remote command,
power distribution, active bias voltage for the PA,
and a highly accurate and stable reference frequency.

DO NOT ATTEMPT REPAIR OR


REMOVE THE P.A. CIRCUIT
BOARD! SEVERE DAMAGE WILL
RESULT.

Microprocessor-Based
Functions
The heart of the M & C unit is the 80C188 microprocessor, operating at 16 MHz. It has 128K of
SRAM and two 1MB FLASH electrically erasable
programmable read-only memories for program and
variable storage.
The microprocessor allows long term, completely unattended remote operation of the
ANASAT-Ku transceiver. All functions are accessible remotely via either of the two serial ports,
which allow remote monitoring and diagnostics as
well as normal frequency and power control.
Analog-to-digital (ADC) and digital-to-analog
(DAC) converters are used by the microprocessor to
monitor operating parameters and control the transceiver. Two external LEDs, a flashing green lamp
indicating proper system operation, and a red one
warning of a Summary alarm are controlled by the
microprocessor. These lamps provide obvious, immediate status feedback to any on-site operator or
maintenance personnel.

Serial Ports
Serial communications are provided through
two communications ports. COM0 is either RS-232
or RS-485 compatible. COM1 is RS-232 compatible.
Both ports allow communications rates between
300bps and 57.6kbps, and use eight data bits, no parity, and one stop bit. Both ports are set at the factory
to 1200bps.

illuminated whenever either the minor or major alarm
relays indicate a problem exists.
The major alarm relay has normally-closed contacts, so it defaults to the alarm state when power is
off.
The alarm relays can be re-configured via software to become summary TX and RX alarm relays.
See ALARM_MODE in Appendix A.

Power Distribution
The M & C unit takes +13V DC input from the
system power supply and generates several additional supplies:
+5V for the M & C unit
+5V for the converter unit
+13V for programming the FLASH memory
and running the LNC
5V for the GaAs FET active bias

3095604

PA Active Bias Generation


The GaAs FETs used in the PA require a negative gate voltage for operation. These very expensive
devices are easily destroyed with improper bias.
ANASAT-Ku transceivers employ an active bias
circuit with feedback to automatically control the DC
power consumption of each PA stage.

Microwave Synthesizer
Frequency Reference
All transceiver operating frequencies are synthesized from one 10 MHz reference oscillator. This
clock is a high accuracy, high stability oven controlled
crystal oscillator (OCXO) module guaranteed within
1 x 108 Hz. The ANASAT-Ku M & C unit periodically compensates for crystal aging automatically.
If your transceiver has been ordered with the
EXTERNAL 10 MHz CRYSTAL REFERENCE
SWITCH option, then that option can be activated
using the EXTREF command.

+11V for the PA (PA1 through PA6)


All supplies are regulated through low noise linear regulators. The 11V supply for the PA is actually
four, five, or six separate regulators (the number of
regulators employed depends upon which transceiver
PA power level used) for isolation and power surge
control reasons. Voltage and/or current is monitored
for each supply. Additionally, a high accuracy, temperature compensated voltage reference is employed
for the DAC and ADC.

Example:
EXTREF ON
When active, the transceivers synthesizers
lock the external reference. If this option has been
activated, but an inadequate external reference signal
is present, then the EXTREF alarm will be raised:
this is a MAJOR alarm. The transceiver is not going
to switch back to the internal crystal reference when

this option is active but an external source is missing


or inadequate.

Power Supply

To return to conventional operation using the


internal reference source, use the command:

ANASAT-Ku transceivers use a wide input


voltage (100 to 240VAC, 47 to 63Hz) switching
power supply to develop the +13V used as the internal power source. An internal circuit senses which
input voltage range is being used and automatically
switches modes. Figure 4-8a and 48b shows how the
power supply is mounted in the transceiver. The AC
input is connected via a 4-pin circular connector.

EXTREF OFF

A minimum signal level recommended for an


external reference is +5 dBm.

recommended that each of these points be recorded.
If problems occur later, these initial recorded values
can be of great help troubleshooting the system. The
following table may be used to record the operating
parameters. Note that several of these values are
specific to the setup. For example, the RX SYNTH
voltage will change if RX CHAN (the receive frequency) is changed.

ANASAT-Ku series transceivers are designed


for a minimum of maintenance. The on-board microprocessor monitors all vital functions to ensure
proper operation. Periodic scheduled maintenance is
not required.
Aging of the ovenized reference oscillator is

reducing maintenance worries.

LNC Replacement
Although the ANASAT-Ku family of transceivers is designed to need no normal maintenance, if
it ever becomes necessary to replace the LNC, this
procedure may be accomplished in the field with a
minimum of equipment.

3095604

Checking Receive Gain


After the LNC is replaced, the system gain
calibration may be affected. Check receive gain with
a known signal.
1)

Connect a satellite modem or a spectrum


analyzer to the transceiver IF output (RXIF).

Two indications point to a faulty LNC; although


a faulty LNC cable can also cause these symptoms.

2)

Monitor RXIF output from a known signal


source (satellite or signal generator source).

1)

Improper LNC Voltage

3)

2)

Receive IF output level low

Connect a terminal to the RS-232 or M & C


ports on the transceiver. Using the command
RXGAIN nnnn (see Appendix A), adjust
receive gain until the modem or spectrum
analyzer reports an acceptable signal level.

4)

If necessary, use the OFFSET_RXG command for accurate receive gain correlation
(see Appendix A for details).

Both of the above parameters are reported by


the remote M & C terminal display.

LNC Replacement Procedure

Transmitter RF output power levels


are adequate to cause blindness or
other serious injury to body tissues.
Use caution when working around
the transceiver or antenna when the
transmitter is active.

1)

Remove power from the transceiver.

2)

Disconnect the coax cable to the N-connector on the LNC.

3)

Unbolt the LNC from the antenna mount.


Save the weather tight gasket for reuse.

4)

Attach the new LNC to the flange, using the


gasket.

5)

Reconnect the coax cable to the LNC Nconnector.

6)

Reapply power.

7)

Verify receive gain with a known signal.

M & C Commands

ALARMS
This command returns a list of raised alarms for the given transceiver. The possible
alarms are: WARMING, FANERR, OSLOCK, TXLOCK, RXLOCK, UCMUTE,
PATEMP, TXOUT, TXIN, P12V, PA, N5V, OSLPLL, TXPLL, RXPLL,
P5V, LNCV, PROMERR and RXOUT.
If there are no alarms then ALARMS CLEAR is returned. Status of all individual
alarms is evaluated ten times a second.
Alarms are categorized as MAJOR and MINOR, major alarms cause the external
red LED on the transceiver to begin flashing. If there are no alarms, the status of the transceiver is CLEAR.
MAJOR ALARMS
OSLOCK
raised when the OFFSET PLL has lost lock
TXLOCK
raised when the TX PLL has lost lock
RXLOCK
raised when the RX PLL has lost lock
UCMUTE
raised when the hardware mute circuit on the M & C board is active
(this includes external TX shutdown)
PATEMP
when the heat sink temperature exceeds approx 85oC
PA
raised when any active power amplifier voltage drops too low
N5V
raised when the -5 volt supply drops too far
LNCV
raised when the LNC supply voltage drops too far
RXOUT
raised when the RX IF output power becomes too low
PROMERR
raised if a write or erase operation in the PROM fails
MINOR
WARMING
FANERR
TXIN
TXOUT
P12V
P5V
OSLOOP
TXLOOP
RXLOOP

when the warm-up software function is active upon reset or power


cycling (power turn on)
raised when fan current becomes too low (units with fans only)
raised when TX input is deemed by software to be too high
raised when PA output is deemed by software to be too high
the primary 13V supply drops below a specified level
the 5V supply on the M & C board drops below a specified level
OS VCXO voltage exceeds a specified range may still be locked
UC VCXO voltage exceeds a specified range may still be locked
DC VCXO voltage exceeds a specified range may still be locked

There are alarms conditions which can shutdown the PA stage: WARMING and
OSLOCK, TXLOCK, PATEMP, and N5V. When these alarms are active, the PA stage is
shutdown via the supply lines which feed it. This may cause the PA alarm to be raised as
well. The WARMUP alarm may be disabled with the WARMUP command.
ALARM_MODE

[ NORMAL | PROTECTION ]
There are two modes for alarm relay operation: Normal and Protection. In the NORMAL mode, the relays operate as MAJOR and MINOR relays as described above. In PROTECTION mode, the relays become redefined as TX and RX summary fault relays. The
relay normally called MAJOR becomes the TX relay and the relay normally called MINOR
becomes the RX relay.

Appendix A

A-2

ANACOM ANASATKu Transceiver

ANACOM

3095604

In normal operation, the MAJOR relay is energized so that a power fault causes the relay to relax and thus provide an alarm contact closure. The MINOR relay is normally not energized (non-alarm state). During PROTECTION operation, both relays are normally energized (no alarms). Therefore, the RX relay has reverse definition of its contacts (NO and
NC) for PROTECTION operation compared to its NORMAL operation.
BAUDRATE

[300 | 1200 | 2400 | 4800 | 9600 | 19200 | 38400 | 57600]


This command sets the baudrate of the serial channel the user is presently connected to.
Both serial ports have been programmed for 8 bits, no parity and 1 stop bit. These parameters
are not user changeable.

CLEAR_PASSWORD PASSWORD
This command will clear an existing password. Note that the password must be given in
order for it to be cleared.
CLS
In terminal mode, 25 line feeds are sent to the terminal, effectively clearing the screen.
In VT52 and VT100 modes, CLS refreshes the display.
CRLF [ON | OFF]
This command is only relevant to dumb-terminal mode. It sets (or returns) carriage-return/line-feed status. CRLF ON will command the M & C computer to insert a line-feed in
display output following a carriage return. This can be necessary to make some terminal displays operate properly. In other cases this would be redundant.
DTE
DTE0 [COMMAND]
DTE1 [COMMAND]
These commands return a string of data regarding the specified serial port. If no port is
specified then the present serial port is used.
Using DTE0 and DTE1 it is possible to change some of the serial port parameters for
the serial port other than the one the operator is presently connected to. This could be especially useful for baud rate. Example of operator input from a terminal attached to serial port 0:
dte1 baudrate 19200
The valid commands which can be used in this fashion for the opposing serial port are
BAUDRATE, TERMTYPE, ECHO, CRLF, MODEM_MODE, PC_MODE, and
TERMINAL_MODE.
See the explanations for those commands elsewhere in this appendix.
ECHO [ON | OFF]
This command is only relevant in dumb-terminal mode. It sets (or returns) character
echo mode. For example, if the operator is running a terminal emulation program on his PC
with local echo disabled, type
ECHO ON
to enable echo back from the M & C computer. If the terminal is displaying doubled up characters, use ECHO OFF.

ANACOM ANASATKu Transceiver

A-3

Appendix A

ANACOM

3095604

EXTREF [ON | OFF]


If ON, the ODU is programmed to accept an optional external 10MHz frequency reference source. If one is not present, a new alarm, EXTREF is raised. When an external reference signal appears while the EXTREF alarm is raised, the alarm will be dropped.
If OFF is given, then the internal source is used regardless of whether the optional reference source switch is indicating an external source is present or not.
The default setting is EXTREF OFF.
INFO
Returns information about software and hardware revision numbers.
LABEL [TEXT]
This command erases or [sets] an alphanumeric string up to 32 characters long that the
user can use to title or describe the purpose of the given ODU.
LOCK PASSWORD
With this command most M & C functions will be locked and further user access will be
denied until the UNLOCK command is given. Those commands which remain user accessible
are: UNLOCK, CLS, ALARMS, and LIST.
If a password has been established with the SET_PASSWORD command then that
password must be used with the LOCK command. If there is no established password (if
CLEAR_PASSWORD has been used, for instance), then M & C functions will be locked; but
they can be unlocked without a password. There are two solutions to the problem of having
a locked unit and/or a forgotten password:
1. The unit can be reset using the internal DIP switches. See Appendix D.
2. If the unit is attached to a modem, and presently accessible remotely,
telephone ANACOM.
MODE
This command returns either MODEM_MODE or PC_MODE. Example: MODE
might return MODE MODEM_MODE when the user is connected to the unit via a phone line
and a Hayes compatible modem.
MODEM_MODE
This command is used to tell the M & C computer that a Hayes compatible modem is
attached to the serial port. The way this would be used is a user would enter this command
from a PC using a null modem cable, then disconnect the PC and attach a modem directly to
the port via a modem cable. RX, TX, DCD and signal GND lines must be properly connected.
Once MODEM_MODE is activated, the M & C computer will no longer display dumb terminal display updates or generate packets in packet mode until the DATACARRIER_DETECT line becomes active, indicating the modem is off-hook and connected to
another modem.
MODEM_STRING [TEXT]
When the M & C computer is in modem mode it will periodically send a Hayes compatible initialization string of up to 40 characters to the modem to make sure it is properly configured. The user can get [set] this string via this command. The default string as part of factory settings is:
MODEM_STRING AT S0=1 &C1 &S0 \Q0 E0

Appendix A

A-4

ANACOM ANASATKu Transceiver

ANACOM

3095604

MSG TEXT
This command allows an operator connected to one serial port to send an ASCII message to someone connected to the other port. A message received will appear on the other
operators screen prefixed with the prompt MESSAGE>.
OFFSET

[TXGAIN | RXGAIN]
[number]
This command gets [sets] a floating point offset for TX or RX calibration tables. The
valid arguments are: TXGAIN, RXGAIN.
The default values for these offsets is 0. Example usage:
OFFSET TXGAIN 2
The result of this is that the output would be 2 dB greater than what would otherwise be
transmitted. In other words, the TX gain range would be shifted down by two decibels. If a
TXGAIN of 72 dB were requested, the calibration data interpolation would be done internally
with the value of 74 dB. If the user measures the TX gain with a power meter and finds that
gain is high by 1.5 dB, then he might enter:
OFFSET TXGAIN 1.5

PC_MODE
This is the converse of MODEM_MODE. At any time, the user may type PC_MODE
and the M & C computer will again behave as if a PC or network is directly attached to the
serial port rather than a modem.
PORT_TO_PORT

[ON|OFF]

This command sets (gets) the status of the port_to_port function. When active on, then
function re-transmits all serial port data from COM0 to COM1 and also from COM1 to
COM0 regardless of data content. If the M & C interprets data as a legitimate command
then the command is acted on. Otherwise the data is ignored by the M & C. When ON, the
M & C does not issue ??????? when data is received which does not conform to a proper
command.
WARNING: When this function is ON, the M & C will not automatically change
baudrate to 1200 when the external data is changed to 1200.
REFRESH
This command refreshes the RF hardware to presently chosen receive and transmit
channels and gain settings.
RESET
This command resets the M & C computer. Power-on time will reset to zero. Warning:
RESET will shut down the transceiver momentarily.
RXCHAN [number | INC | DEC]
This command gets [sets] the receive channel number. See Appendix E for channel frequency information. NOTE: Channel 0 is not a valid selection.
RXGAIN [number]
This command gets [sets] receiver gain. The acceptable range is a two or three digit integer between 85 and 100 (dB).
SAVE
This command saves present M & C operating parameters to a FLASH EEPROM.

SET_PASSWORD PASSWORD PASSWORD


The M & C computer supports password control of M & C functions. One potential
use of this feature would be for leaving an ODU connected to a modem on an open telephone
line. A valid password must be an alphanumeric string with no imbedded blanks, and between
four and eight characters long inclusive. It must be given twice to ensure accuracy.
An existing password must first be cleared before setting a new password. This is done
with the CLEAR_PASSWORD command.
TERMTYPE [TTY | VT52 | VT100] (OLD UNITS,OBSOLETE)
This command is only relevant to dumb-terminal mode. It sets (or returns) the terminal
emulation mode.
TTY Terminal Mode: this is a basic 80 character by 25 line ASCII dumb terminal
mode.
VT52 Mode: This is a standard terminal emulation, more intelligent than TTY.
VT100 Mode: This in an enhanced communications terminal emulator with a fixed display window.
There are some control characters that will be filtered by the terminal driver when the
M & C computer is in terminal mode. These control characters will be ignored in packet
mode.
CTRL-E: This will erase the screen, similar to the CLS command.
CTRL-R: This repeats execution of the last Carriage return terminated command.
CTRL-Q: refer to the description of CTRL-S.
CTRL-S: Periodic screen updates will be squelched until the user has
finished entering present command or hits CTRL-Q.
CTRL-BS: (Backspace) The present input command will be erased
TX
[ON | OFF]
TXREQ
[ON | OFF]
TXREQUEST [ON | OFF]
This command requests activation of the transmitter. This is done by enabling the PA
supply voltages. TXREQ ON will indicate the operators desire to begin transmission. With no
argument TXREQ simply return its present state as ON or OFF. Note that the unit will be
shipped with TXREQ set to OFF.
Exactly when are we ON AIR? The answer is when TXREQ is ON, the hardware
alarm TXMUTE is clear, and the transmitter is not software inhibited to allow the crystal reference oscillator time to warm-up at power-on. See the WARMUP command for details.
TXCHAN [number]
This command gets [sets] the transmit channel number. The acceptable range depends
upon model type. See Appendix E for channel frequency information. Channel 0 is not a
valid selection.
TXFREQ [number]
This command gets [sets] the transmit channel number. The acceptable range depends
upon model type. The [number] is the actual transmit frequency output with TXIF at 70 MHz
[or 140 MHz].

61 to 87 dB for the ANASAT 100Ku
62 to 88 dB for the ANASAT 125Ku

UNLOCK PASSWORD
This command will unlock M & C functions for user access.
UTIMER [NUMBER]
This command is only relevant to dumb-terminal mode. It sets (or returns) the number of
seconds between automatic display updates. Note that changing baud rate will automatically
revert to a default appropriate for that particular baudrate.
WARMUP [ON | OFF | CANCEL]
Upon transceiver power-up, a 5 minute period will pass to allow the reference oscillator
crystal oven sufficient warm up time. The unit is shipped with this flag set OFF, but can be
changed by the user. Because there is no way for the M & C computer to know how long it
has been off the air, a reset or momentary loss of power will cause a warm-up countdown to
occur when the feature is in use. WARMUP CANCEL will terminate a warm-up countdown
and immediately enable the transmitter.
TXD; TXDAC [NUMBER]
This command bypasses the transmit numerical gain compensation by the M&C. It will
issue [number] 1 to 255 to the TX gain control element. This is for troubleshooting use only
and transceiver should not be left in this mode as the numerical compensation (temp. + freq.)
would be disabled.
RXD; RXDAC [NUMBER]
This command bypasses the receive numerical gain compensation by the M&C. It will
issue [number] 0 to 255 to the RX gain control element. This is for troubleshooting use only
and transceiver should not be left in this mode as the numerical compensation (temp. + freq.)
would be disabled.

Appendix B. Alarm List


The ANASAT-Ku transceiver features sophistocated internal monitoring. If an abnormal condition
occurs, a description of the abnormality is sent via the M & C serial port to the operators console.
These alarms are divided into two categories: major alarms and minor alarms. When a TX major alarm
condition is detected, the transmitter is immediately pulled OFF the air. An advisory message is sent to the
operator via the serial port and the red ALARM LED, visible from outside the transceiver, begins flashing.
Most major alarms are generated directly by hardware detectors inside the transceiver. Minor alarms do not
disable the transmitter or light the LED, but still cause an advisory message on the serial port. Most minor
alarms are generated by M & C software routines which look for out of tolerance conditions.

For situations when the ALARM_MODE is set to PROTECTION, the alarm relays are re-defined as
TX and RX alarm relays instead of MAJOR and MINOR. The M & C software still considers the alarms as
either major or minor and will communicate alarms via the serial ports as major or minor.
In PROTECTION mode, the alarm relays will engage based on the following alarm list:

TX

RS485/RS232 Selection
(COM1, 18-Pin Connector Only)
Pin 12 of the 18-pin Weathertight circular connector is the RS485/RS232 mode select pumper pin.
Connect Pin 12 to Ground (Pin 18) for RS485 operation. Leave open for RS232 operation. This has no
effect on the other serial port.

Data Terminal Connection


Using a serial cable with a connector on one end that matches your terminal equipment (either a
dumb terminal or a computer running terminal emulator or modem software), connect the 6-pin or 18-pin
Weathertight circular connector to the other end, following Figure C-1 and the applicable previous table.

Alternative Alarm Relay Wiring


For protected installations, it may be desired to operate the transceiver with the alarm relays reporting
separate TX and RX alarms instead of the normal Major and Minor alarms. See Appendix A for the
ALARM_MODE command. When operating in PROTECTION mode, the alarm relays on the M&C
connector should be wired per this chart:
