Upconverter for complete control over the input frequency and bandwidth

The RFT-4200 series frequency converter gives you more flexibility with complete control over the input frequency and bandwidth to get the best results out of digitizers, signal records and other equipment. Additionally, with RF up to 40GHz and an IBW up to 2GHz, the RFT-4200 family of upconverters provides the broadband performance needed to stay ahead of future threats.

With Multiple Bandwidths you can:

  • Tune any RF output frequency up to 40GHz
  • Tune any IF input from 50MHz to 2GHz
  • Selectable bandwidth choice up to 2GHz
