sat-nms LBRX19 - L-Band Beacon Receiver
The sat-nms LBRX19 receives a satellite beacon signal that is down-converted to L-Band by a PLL stabilized Low NoiseConverter (LNB) at its L-Band interface input. The sat-nms LBRX19 does not demodulate any satellite signals becausethe satellite signals are not always CW signals but even more often modulated in FM or QPSK. Due to this fact, thebest implementation is a non-coherent receiver that measures the input level in a user selectable defined bandwidthand provides this digitized level information via local and remote interfaces. The signal level information is providedvia four different interface types: an http web interface via internal web server, UDP datagram’s, RS232 interface andthe dB linear analog output voltage. The sat-nms LBRX19 Beacon Receiver is controlled remotely by a monitoring andcontrol application via the TCP/IP interface. Communication with the beacon receiver is made with http requests orover a serial Monitoring and Control protocol.
