The Novella Compact Beacon Tracking Receiver is ideal for use in motorised tracking antenna systems. A beacon receiver is typically used to lock to a satellite’s unique beacon frequency and provides a very stable reference Received Signal Strength (RSSI) signal for tracking antenna systems.
The Novella Compact Beacon Tracking Receiver the preferred choice for fixed earth stations and field deployable antenna systems including C, X , Ku, and Ka Band. The Novella Compact Beacon Tracking Receivers utilities a combination of tried and tested Phase Lock Loop (PLL) techniques, and anti-sideband (ASB) circuitry to provide a extremely stable reference RSSI.
Novella’s unique design allows this Beacon Receiver to re-acquire lock in all circumstances making the Novella Compact Beacon Tracking Receiver ideal for tracking highly inclined orbit satellites where Döppler shift causes lower quality trackers to fail.The Novella Compact Beacon Tracking Receiver accepts to a low threshold of 43dBHz providing rapid re-acquisition typically in less than 1 second.
The Novella Compact Beacon Tracking Receiver are available with the following RF input interfaces at 70/140MHz, L, S, C, X, Ku, or Ka-band. They are also available in a variety of multi-band packages, namely C, X, and Ku Bands.
Av-Comm utilises the Novella Beacon Receivers in our RC4500 tracking antenna systems to provide superior tracking accuracy and link performance.
