DiRaSelect300

+++

With the DiRaSelect 300 we expand our product range of receiver accessories by an additional component. Via USB up to three different receiving antennas from 9 kHz - 300 MHz can be switched loss-free to one output socket.

Additionally it is possible to combine all three input channels according to your individual needs. The selected channels are added as in-phase signals. Hereby it is possible to find always the best combination of antennas when receiving conditions are difficult.

Due to the elemination of mechanic components like relays, channel switching is purely elctronic switching using active components. So above average intermodulation values (IP3:+40 dBm at 7MHz typical) and extremely high reverse isolation values are achieved. The electronics are installed in strong aluminum profile housing.

The HF-inputs are BNC and are protected against short and pulse-shaped voltage surges with complex ESD protection circuits. Because the voltage supply is integrated via USB, there is no need for an additional power supply, which makes the ASM300 ideal for portable operation.


Applications:

- Radio Monitoring

- COMINT

- SIGINT

Control software AJ10Mini:

DiRaSelect 300 Software

The small control panel allows switching between the three antenna inputs (Antenna Swich) and also individual combining (Antenna Mixer).

This software is freely available and registration is not necessary. It is equally suitable for the NTi DiRaRelect 300 as well as for the technically identical AntennaJet ASM300 from Bonito.
