vBoost – DC Voltage Booster and Regulator

Power continues to be a problem in terms of supplying different voltages to separate parts, or loss of voltage because of voltage droop on cable runs.
To help in alleviating that, Orbital has designed the vBoost power supply. It can take a DC voltage input anywhere in the range of 5 to 30 VDC and provide two DC outputs:

  1. An Ultra Low-Noise Regulated output, 5 to 20 VDC out
  2. A Switching Power Supply output, 5 to 30 VDC out

Switching Power Supply

PS1 for North America
PS2 for Global


  • Will operate with Orbital SIP modules, LNBs, BDCs, BUCs, Rxs
    and Modems
  • Output DC levels set when ordering. No adjustments in the
    field. However, input DC levels can fluctuate and change as long
    as they are within the 5 to 30 VDC range.
  • O-ring sealed connectors and Hylomar sealed enclosure


  • The system mounts out at the dish, out of the way, providing
    protection from long cable runs with voltage droop.
  • Diode protection to prevent accidental reverse polarity DC.
  • Solid billet milled box and lid.
  • Blue Anodized finish, MIL-STD-595
  • RoHS & REACH compliant

Made for Professional Use, Made for Satellite:

Orbital Systems Interface Products are made specifically for the satellite industry, and are designed for professional and industrial quality systems.  Orbital SIP products are built for rack mounting, and for use indoors or out.  They are also perfect at the dish or in the rack for creating a test point for live signals – without degrading ongoing operations.

SIP Solutions

Systems Interface Products Although Combiners and Oscillators are also SIP products, we have narrowed the definition here to just include Bias Tees, Diplexers, Mux Tees, TTL Switches, Thru Tees, Dual Power Tees, etc.

Here are standard applications for each of these products. Here’s how to insert 10 MHz, insert DC, extract 10 MHz, block DC, extract DC, multiplex DC L band and 10 MHz, and perform impedance transforms while you do it.

Using a Hi Power Thru Tee to power a BUC
Modem has DC power, but not enough to power my new BUC.

4 Way Combiner with 10 MHz Oscillator and Hi Power DC insert.
I want to lock several modems to a single 10 MHz Oscillator, and insert high power DC to my BUC.

Orbital 2-way Combiner using 10 MHz from one of the modems and Hi Power Mux/Tee to insert DC power
I have a pair of modems, one of which provides a 10 MHz reference, but I don’t have enough power from my modem for my new high power BUC.

Orbital Combiner/Divider stripping out the 10MHz from only one of two modems
I have a pair of modems and I need to use the 10 MHz reference from one of them and split it. I need to take the L-Band signal from both modems and combine it with the 10 MHz reference. Now I need to insert DC power for a pair of high power BUCS.

Orbital Combiner/Divider using a MOS 10 MHz Oscillator
I need to combine the L-Band signals from a pair of modems with an common, external 10 MHz source, and insert power to a pair of high power BUCs.

Using an Orbital Hi Power Thru Tee to circumvent a divider or switch
My modem does not have sufficient DC to power my BUCs, and I can’t switch DC power to the BUC, what to do?

Horizontal/Vertical Polarity 1 for 2 Redundant System
We need a system that will provide us with both horizontal and vertical polarities at Ku Band. In addition, the system must offer 1 for 2 redundancy.
