The Atlantic Satellite Corporation ASC 300KuET-Tri-band Extended Beacon Receiver 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
ASC300KuET will tune over the three primary Ku band satellites (10.7-11.70 GHz, 11.70-12.20 GHz,
12.25-12.75 GHz) by utilizing internal block down converters. The applications for the ASC300 Ku-T are
for antenna tracking controllers and uplink power control system.
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.
