“Field” level tester is used to test the working state and functionality of the complete transponder. It transmits the modulated 1030MHz signal which is received by transponder receiver. Transponder transmitter then sends a reply at modulated 1090MHz which is then received by Field level tester and it confirms the received signal as an output pulse. This is a state of the art tester which is easy to use and hand carry tester to meet the test requirements in the field.
The First Line IFF Tester of Transponder System constitutes of a total of five SRUs or Cards/ Boards which when integrated make the whole tester in working state (along with Antenna), the SRUs are namely:
It is capable of checking the code capacity of “IFFPEHCHAN14” identification codes of Mode 1 (32 groups), Mode 2 (4096 groups) and Mode 3/A (4096 groups), altitude value of Mode C (-386 ~ +38618m) and identification code by encryption mode (M6) in the meantime it is also capable of checking the special identification code and side lobe suppression of responded by ““IFFPEHCHAN14”. It can function properly for long hours after its complete charging due to its large battery backup of 8000mAH.
