The is a high performance unit that 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, RMSresponding
power detector. The proprietary “SWEEP TRAC” option provide signal tracking capability for higher drift LNB’s. The
applications for the ASC300-LW are for antenna step track controlling and uplink power control system.
CDS, Continuous Digital Streaming
The streaming option associated with the ASC300 series of beacon tracking 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. Other baud rates are available. A female DB9, RS-
232 or RS-422, interface connector on the rear of the unit is specifically dedicated for this option.
