Brandywine Communications, a manufacturer and distributor of time and frequency equipment has announced the release of the FDU-160i Advanced Frequency Distribution Amplifier.

The FDU-160i is a high performance signal distribution amplifier designed from the ground up for use with high precision time and frequency sources. Contained in a compact 1U rack- mount chassis. The FDU-160i accepts two sets of inputs, comprising the reference frequency (typically 10MHz) and status from the source. The FDU provides automatic changeover should one of the on-line source inputs fail. Manual source select override is also available on the front panel, or through the Ethernet interface. 16 Low noise output signal amplifiers provide robust signal distribution. Each output level is individually settable via the web browser interface, with individual signal level alarms. Amplitude can be set in Volts(rms), Volts(peak-peak) or in dBm.

A variety of status indicators are located on the front panel for instant visual feedback, together with manual controls for source selection. A 10/100 Ethernet interface provides full control over the functionality of the system, including reference selection and output amplitude (on a per channel basis).

User control of the unit is via a built-in Web Browser with Brandywine’s revolutionary HTML5-based graphical user interface, or via SNMP for larger system applications. The user interface is compatible with all browsers, including smartphones and tablets. SNMP (V3) control includes security authentication.

The FDU-160i is ideal for secure communications systems, satellite ground stations, digital television broadcasting and any system requiring highly reliable frequency outputs.

The FDU-160i is the third of Brandywine Communications next-generation timing products, following after their revolutionary Portable Timing Unit and Range Timecode Generator, which raised the standards by bringing a modern HTML5 interface to Time and Frequency. The FDU-160i can be ordered by contacting Brandywine Communications through their website at brandywinecomm.com
