SBS Berg Telemetry Systems announces the Model 4487-Series, a complete single-slot tunable PCM Telemetry Data Receiver for the ISA or VME bus. It supports both AM and wideband FM demodulation at data rates up to 20 Mbps (NRZ-L). The Model 4487 provides users with a high performance, low cost telemetry receiver. "The 4487 Receiver complements our existing product line," said Rick Schuh, President of the SBS Aerospace Group. "We now have the ability to solve the entire spectrum of our customer's RF requirements from the antenna to the baseband output." Price and Availability
The Model 4487-Series, priced at $8,950 (list), is available for shipment immediately. Features
Two multi data rate options are available for the 4487 Receiver. For low data rates, Option-L is available which allows the user to select from four separate programmable IF bandwidths. The first two IF bandwidths may be selected from a group between 500 KHz and 2.5 MHz, and the second being selected from the range 3 MHz to 10 MHz. For higher rates, Option-H is available which allows the user a selection of four separate programmable IF bandwidths between 5 MHz and 40 MHz. The 4487 also provides four user selectable post detection filter bandwidths including: 500 KHz, 1.0 MHz, 2.5 MHz and 5.0 MHz (for Option-L) and 3.0 MHz, 5.0 MHz, 15.0 MHz and 20.0 MHz (for Option-H). Other custom post detection bandwidth filter values may be provided as factory options. The 4487-Series Receiver has been optimized to match transmitters with carrier deviations of 0.35 times bit rate (0.35 x Rb) and output bandwidths that are two times bit rate (2.0 x Rb).
