The Model 3430-X is a fully frequency agile satellite receiver designed to provide a linear DC
reference voltage proportional to the received signal level of a satellite beacon or narrow-band
SCPC carrier. Frequency selection on 10 kHz steps may be accomplished from the front panel
or remote control. Pre-detection noise bandwidth of 50 kHz facilitates accurate tracking at very
low C/N levels.
Version 3 Firmware Features
RS-232 / RS-485 are both included and
selected via front panel menu options.
Ethernet connectivity with M&C control interface
Available baud rates of 1200, 2400, 4800,
9600 and 19200 are selected via front
panel menu options.
Extended RS-485 addressing range of
hexadecimal 01 - FF.
Remote Port polling active in Local
The output of the Beacon Receiver is a DC voltage proportional to the input signal level to facilitate
both 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 external Loss of Carrier Alarm.
A front panel VFD displays operating frequency, relative signal level, carrier lock or alarm and
