Text Box: Functional Description
 
The Model ASC300LW 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 temperature stabilized DC voltage that is linearly proportional to the beacon power by utilizing a true, RMS-responding power detector. The proprietary “SWEEP TRAC” option provide signal tracking capability for higher drift LNB’s. The applications for the ASC300LW are for antenna step track controlling and uplink power control system.
