The Model 3430-L Version 4 is the latest release of our reliable series of 3430 Beacon
Receivers. With Version 4 firmware we now
offer the full L-band 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. Frequency selection on 10
kHz steps may be accomplished from the
front panel or via remote control. Pre-detection noise bandwidth of 50 kHz (or factory
option of 25 kHz) facilitates accurate tracking at
very low C/N levels.
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
NEW Version 2.0 M&C control interface allows for remote monitoring from one or
RS-232/422/485 and Ethernet All Standard
Temperature stabilization compensation.
Satellite Systems announces the new control GUI version 2.0 for the Beacon Receiver Product line.
Enhanced control features and additional
monitoring tools are included along with strip charting for signal strength, AFC, and temperature.
Version 2.0 also includes a new event triggered
alarm feature that allows for email notification to your laptop or cell phone. Alarms are triggered
via signal strength, loss of signal,
and AFC conditions.
User Interface Example
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.
