The R&S® XK2100L 19" desktop, 150 W HF transceiver for the frequency range 1.5 MHz to 30 MHz can be operated locally as well as remotely via an integrated, multistandard serial interface. For the local mode, a user-friendly, large LCD display with backlighting is provided, i.e. a bright display together with functionassigned softkeys. These control elements allow the complete operation, programming of approx. 1000 channels as well as configuration of the transceiver via user-specific menus (incorporated as firmware).
The R&S® XK2100L can also be operated remotely. Same as from the front panel, all settings of the transceiver can be effected via the RS-232-C/485 interface (integrated and configurable).
The following remote control units can be used:
- R&S® GP2000 remote control processor
- R&S® GB2000 remote control unit
- IBM-compatible PC
The R&S® XK2100L basic unit comes with free slots at the rear to take up userspecific interface options for matching the system or user units.
The R&S® XK2100L basic unit is powered from a nominal 26.5 V DC source (21 V to 31 V).
AC supply operation of the transceiver is effected by an external power supply (R&S® IN2100) with autoranging to the available power line (88 V to 264 V). Moreover, a 24 V standby battery can be connected to the R&S® IN2100 for interrupt- free operation of the transceiver in the case of power failure.
If the transceivers are operated in DATA mode, i.e. continuously at full transmit power, the use of the blower unit option (R&S® KL2100) mounted at the rear is mandatory.
The R&S® GVxx, R&S® FK21xx, and R&S® GS21xx interface options that are plugged in at the rear of the R&S® XK2100L transceivers allow easy connection or matching to external options such as a system processor, HF modem, telephone PABX, detached duplex or emergency receiver (GMDSS).
Up to four interface options can be inserted into the free slots at the rear.
