Codan 8W KU-Band BUC Model 6908-W/S-48 IF I have to admit that it’s not the best looking product, but it works well, so what more do you want?
Codan uses a very structured model number system. The full model number for this BUC is 6908-W/S-48IF, which when translated using Codan’s system, means 8W, Waveguide output, 48VDC power, standard frequency range (14 to 14.5GHz) and type N connector.
The photographs show them under test on our bench. Using an Agilent power meter with a Comtech CDM-570L with a 48VDC BUC power supply installed.
