Gator Datasheet
The BVS Gator Class A Stimulus Transmitter features Class A power amplification, rugged, weatherproof housing and built-in VSWR antenna protection. Its light weight makes Gator™ a versatile transmitter suited for both field and laboratory work. Gator™ features an agile frequency synthesizer, dynamically controlled power amplifier and a built-in modem and DTMF (touch tone) decoding for remote control of all transmitter parameters via a phone line or cellphone. Remote adjustments include the power level, channel or frequency assignment, and transmit On/Off. Included Windows® PC controller software and user adjustable knobs allow for pinpoint accurate adjustments in 0.1 dB increments, frequency adjustments and step size. Gator™ may be powered by standard 110-240 VAC power from any outlet, generator or battery-powered DC source. Dual cooling fans provide excellent heat dissipation and ensure the purest RF signal output. GSM modulated schemes and custom frequencies available upon request.
