Units are provisioned with L-Band loop through capability (F or BNC connectors) so power can be coupled onto the coaxial cable connected to the LNB, or with quick connect terminal blocks for direct powering of the LNBs. Front access to the redundant power supply modules allows for easy replacement in the event of a power supply failure.
