S-Band tracking telemetry receiver

The telemetry tracking receiver operates in the S-band and is used for the reception of FM data signals with a modulation frequency between 200 Hz and 10 MHz. The IF filter bandwidth can be switched between 10 MHz and 50 MHz. The receiver provides selectable filter bandwidths of 30, 150, 300, 600, 2400, 4800 KHz and 10 MHz for baseband signal filtering.

The receiver is optimized for the reception of radio signals from non-stabilized transmitters. During reception a drift of the transmitter carrier frequency of up to 30 MHz can be compensated without readjusting the receiver.

The receiver provides a stabilized and filtered +24 V (max. 300 mA) supply for operating an external LNA

The receiver has a graphic LCD showing the currrent reception frequency and selected video bandwidth. In addition the received signal strength (RSSI) and the deviation of the current reception frequency from the actual transmitter carrier frequency is indicated. The LCD also displays the current drawn from the external +24 V connector.

The receiver has the following selectable inputs:

  • Active input (internal LNA), N jack
  • Passive input (e.g. if an external LNA is used), N jack

The following signals are provided at the outputs:

  • IF signal, N jack
  • Video, BNC jack
  • RSSI (DC voltage proportional to the input power), BNC jack
  • Drift (Deviation of transmitter from receiver center frequency, proportional DC voltage), BNC jack
  • +24 V / 300 mA, 5 pole DIN jack
