The R&S®XK2100L 19" desktop, 150 W HF transceiver for the 1.5 MHz to 30 MHz frequency range can be operated locally as well as remotely via an integrated, multistandard serial interface. For the local mode, a user-friendly, large backlit LCD display is provided, delivering a bright picture together with function-assigned softkeys. These control elements allow programming of approx. 1000 channels as the well as complete operation and 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 made 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
- PC with RS-232-C/RS-485 interface
The R&S®XK2100L base unit comes with free slots at the rear to take up user-specific interface options for matching the system or user units.
R&S®XK2100L base unit is powered from a nominal 26.5 V DC source (21 V to 31 V).
For AC operation of the transceiver an external power supply (R&S®IN4000A) with autoranging to the available power line (90 V to 2654 V) is used. Moreover, a 24 V standby battery can be connected to the R&S®IN4000A for interrupt-free operation of the transceiver in the event of a 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, detached duplex or emergency receiver (GMDSS).
Up to four interface options can be inserted into the free slots at the rear.
