The Eclipse range of Base Stations, Repeaters and RF Links use a modular design. This has been done to offer the most flexible use of any unit for system configuration. Using the 19" rack international standard for construction means the units are easily assembled into a format that meets customers needs.

Based on the recognition of our customers operational needs, the audio circuitry of the Eclipse equipment has been designed to give an unprecedented on air quality. This exceptional quality has been confirmed by many mobile operators who immediately recognise the Eclipse equipment performance from that of other manufacturers.

The Eclipse Receiver design incorporates specifications that comply with most of the worlds differing specifications for Base Station / Repeater operation. Emphasis has been given to sensitivity, selectivity, blocking and inter-modulation performance to ensure outstanding operation in the most congested sites.

For interfacing with the vast array of associated equipment, Eclipse receivers have the following interconnection features:

. 600 Ohm balanced or unbalanced outputs.
. High impedance output.
. Discriminator output.
. Direct Audio output.
. Opto coupled COS output.
. Either de-emphasis or flat audio response.
. Noise, Carrier, CTCSS or Fast Noise squelch operation.
. Internal monitor speaker standard.
. Built in diagnostics.

The Eclipse Transmitter / Exciter design incorporates specifications that comply with most of the worlds differing specifications for Base Station / Repeater operation. Emphasis has been given to high power outputs ranging from 1 - 25 Watts. With in built power amplifiers, these units can be used as stand alone transmitters for lower power amplifications such as 25 Watt Repeaters or as RF Links in the 2 - 5 Watt range.

In order to interface with a vast array of associated equipment, Eclipse transmitters / exciters have the following interconnection features:

. 1 - 25 Watts output with internal low pass filter.
. 100 % Duty Cycle to 40C.
. 600 Ohm balanced or unbalanced inputs.
. High impedance input.
. External tone input.
. Test microphone input.
. External PTT input.
. Opto coupled loop keying input.
. Either pre-emphasis or flat audio response.
. Built in diagnostics.

The Eclipse Power Amplifier design incorporates specifications that comply with most of the worlds differing specifications for Base Station / Repeater operation. Emphasis was given to high power outputs 25 - 120 Watts.

Eclipse power amplifiers have the following features:

. 1 - 120 Watts output.
. 100 % Duty Cycle to 45C.
. Over temperature protection.
. Automatic power reduction with high VSWR.
. ALC power regulation circuitry.

Fan Module. (See Downloads)

2U rack mounted fan module for cooling in hot environments with high duty cycles.

 

. BC/CH-1
Battery Charger / Change Over: (See Downloads)

Trickle charge change over unit for use with the Eclipse power supplies. Has auto change over to battery with mains failure, open collector output for switching or alarm function.

 

. HSS-1
Hot Standby Switch. (See Downloads).
The HSS will switch a main repeater's RF signal path to a standby repeater in the event of any malfunction of the main repeater. It can be interfaced with the Eclipse ATI card or third party equipment to monitor any alarm condition or ac/dc power loss to the main repeater. Auxiliary inputs are provided for both active high or active low signals.
