The Atlantic Satellite Corporation ASC300C Beacon Tracking Receiver 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, RMS-responding power detector. The applications for the ASC300C are for antenna tracking
controllers and uplink power control system. Note: The model ASC300C can be offered with external BDC instead
of an internal BDC.
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. A female DB9, interface connector on the
rear of the unit is specifically dedicated for this option.
