The SSC L Band Beacon Tracking Receiver 3430-L version 4 is design for satellite communication application requiring a tracking receiver for antenna step tracking, or automatic uplink power control.
The SSC L Band Beacon Tracking Receiver 3430-L version 4 is Satellite Systems Corporations latest release of the reliable series of 3430 L Band Beacon Receivers. This latest version of the SSC L Band Beacon Tracking Receiver 3430-L now supports the full L band input frequency range of 930 to 2300 MHz, Digital Level Reference setting, Ethernet connectivity with M&C control interface, and power up temperature compensation for rapid signal acquisition.
SSC L Band Beacon Tracking Receiver 3430-L typically has an input stability range of +/- 25 kHz with a pre-detection noise bandwidth of 50 kHz facilitating accurate tracking at very low C/N levels. The SSC L Band Beacon Tracking Receiver 3430-L supports frequency selection in 10 kHz steps, selectable by the front panel or via remote ethernet control.
- Wide bandwidth, 930 to 2300 MHz standard
- Digital level reference setting, -40 to -100 dBm on 0.5 dB steps
- Ethernet connectivity with M&C control interface
- M&C control interface allows for remote monitoring from one or multiple location
- RS-232/422/485 and Ethernet all Standard
- Temperature stabilisation compensation.
The output of the Beacon Receiver is a DC voltage proportional to the input signal level to facilitate both antenna tracking control and automatic power control. A Loss of Carrier indicator is provided in the event the tracking signal is lost. Form “C” relay contacts provide an external Loss of Carrier Alarm. A front panel VFD or SSC GUI (via your computer) displays operating frequency, relative signal level, carrier lock or alarm, and input level.
