Vertex Digital Ku-band Tracking - Beacon Receiver model TRK-14

Brand: Vertex
Part number: TRK-14

The Model TRK-14 Tracking Receiver, developed by Vertex Communications years ago, is a versatile, still reliable and user-friendly receiver and down converter in one compact rack-mount (4RU) unit for use step track antenna control systems in satellite earth Stations.

The TRK-14 provides a proportional DC tracking signal from any of four customer-defined, crystal-controlled beacon frequencies in the range of 10.95 to 12.75Ghz. Any beacon in this bandwidth range can be selected using a customer-furnished reference generator connected to the external Frequency Reference Input of the TRK-14.

The front panel offers convenient selection of the desired beacon. An alphanumeric display provides direct readouts of the  selected beacon frequency and the operating conditions of the major sub functions. A meter shows the DC tracking voltage output level for the selected beacon.
For remote operation, the TRK-14 accepts dry contact closures for beacon selection. An auxiliary signal strength output provides for independent monitoring. A from C dry contact summary alarm output is provided for monitoring any critical fault in the receiver, including loss of signal.

Input power, 120/220/240 VAC (50/60Hz). See datasheet for additional specs. This is a like new unit and had a new value of 13K euro. We provide a 1 year warranty.
