The Satellite Systems Corp Model 3430-IF is a tracking receiver for antenna step tracking and automatic uplink power control. The Model 3430-IF Version 4 is the latest release of our reliable series of 3430 Beacon Receivers. The Model 3430-IF features an input of 50-200 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.
50 to 200 MHz standard input for 70 MHz and 140 MHz IF band applications
Digital level reference setting, -10 to -70 dBm on 0.5 dB steps
Ethernet connectivity with M&C control interface
M&C control interface allows for remote monitoring from one or multiple locations
RS-232/422/485 and Ethernet All Standard
Temperature stabilization compensation
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 or SSC GUI (via your computer) displays operating frequency, relative signal level, carrier lock or alarm, and input level.
