KATHREIN's New Digital Headend '' UFO COMPACT PLUS '' is changing data into Digital Technology. The innovation of the new UFO Compact Plus Headend lies in its high versatility and its versatility.

This is the new model of KATHREIN the UFG 810, and for all the new Modul's of the New UFO Compact PLUS series.The UFG 810 is the new Kathrein Headend System that unites innovation and tradition in a unique way. The new UFO COMPACT PLUS series provides users with the technological base for today's and tomorrow's challenges in the field of signal processing technology.

The UFG 810 consists of the UFN 800, the Modul's UFX 800 Control Module, which has 2 LAN ports and 2 USB ports (the Software, USW 800 for the control unit is available for free) and has 10 slots for placing up to 10 Modul's. The high performance UVO 830 amplifier can be used optionally and is not included in the UFG 810. This amplifier makes use of external amplifiers unnecessary in most application scenarios. The durable aluminum housing provides excellent thermal characteristics. In addition, the new UFO Compact Plus Modules are characterized by extremely low power consumption. The fan in the UFG 810 ensures the long-term operation of complex electronics, even under high ambient temperature conditions. For power, the UFN 800, it is worth highlighting its high performance, with extreme parameters, offering an extremely high performance rate of over 92%. All modules can be inserted on the front, allowing easy accessibility when required. The UFG 810 includes a security lock with a security lock to prevent Moduls from being tampered with, and is placed either on a wall or in a 19 "rack.

The UFX 800 control unit allows setting up all UFO Compact Plus and UFO Compact. In conjunction with the free USW 800 management software, users can access all of the system's parameters either on-site by connecting the UFX 800 LAN 1 to the Laptop on which we have installed the USW 800 software, which as we said is available Free , or if the unit is connected to the Internet, all settings and parameters can be managed remotely. To facilitate the efficient management of larger systems, the USW 800 software offers a number of special features such as favorite lists, off-line configuration and module setup. Both the UFO Compact Plus Module New Generation and the UFO Compact series are supported and adjusted to any desired combination. However, to incorporate the previous UPS Compact Modules, the new UFG 810 Headend requires the UFZ 800 adapter.
The New Series of UFO Compact Plus and Transmodulator have come to change data technology once again.

The new Transmodulators are designed with four RF inputs, ie they receive a signal at their four inputs, a multi-switch, DiSEqC ™ 1.0, two to four satellites, process and shape the signals and programs we want, and give us RF output Four or Six or Eight Output Channels, in any frequency range we want DVB-T or DVB-C (VHF, BI, UHF, S-BAND).
