Model ASC300Ku-E (External BDC) Beacon Tracking Receiver
The Model ASC300Ku-E Beacon Tracking Receiver is a high performance unit that is designed to real time track the power density of a satellite beacon and output a DC voltage that is linearly proportional to the beacon power by utilizing a true, RMS-responding power detector. The ASC300Ku-E will tune over any of the three primary Ku band satellites (10.7-11.70 GHz, 11.70-12.20 GHz, 12.25-12.75 GHz) by utilizing an external block down converter. The frequency band must be customer specified. The applications for the ASC300Ku-E are for antenna tracking controllers and uplink power control system.
CDS Continuous Digital Streaming (Optional)
The streaming option associated with the ASC300 series of beacon tracking receivers provides a continuous, two byte, data stream running at 9600 baud that contains ten bits of signal strength level indication as well as lock or alarm condition of the unit. A female DB9, interface connector on the rear of the unit is specifically dedicated for this option.
