Model ASC 300C Beacon Receiver

The Model ASC300C Beacon 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 applications for the ASC300Care for antenna tracking controllers and uplink power control system. Note: The model ASC300C can be offered with external BDC instead of an internal BDC.

CDS Continuous Digital Streaming

The streaming option associated with the ASC300 series of beacon 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.
