Beacon Tracking Receiver

Beacon Tracking Receiver

Model No. 1) BR23-L 2) /3430L

A Beacon Tracking Receiver for antenna step tracking and automatic uplink power control.

    1. Wide bandwidth, 930 to 2300 MHz standard
    2. Digital level reference setting, -40 to -100 dBm on 0.5 dB steps
    3. Rs-232/422/485 and Standard

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 displays operating frequency, relative signal level, carrier lock or alarm, and input level.
