Remote ADF Receiver

The ADF 3502-() Receiver is designed for professional operation in the frequency range 190.0 kHz to 1799.5 kHz.
The system is ideally suited for installations where minimum space is available. The small, lightweight control unit CU 5502 fits into a standard 2 ¼” (57mm) round instrument cutout and is only 2 ½” deep.

The ADF Receiver can be installed at any convenient place in the aircraft. The RS 422 interface between CU and Rx do not limit the interviring. The control unit CU 5502 offers a clear, high contrast, double line display, which is readable under all lighting conditions, even in bright sunlight.

The frequency can be selected in 0.5 kHz/1kHz, 10 kHz/100 kHz steps by using variable speed frequency control. The pre-selection in the channel memory of the preset display allows instant switchover by pushing a “Flip-Flop” key to a new NDB enroute for indication of the cross bearing for a position fix relatively to a second NDB. The output of the receiver is compatible with indicator ID 3502 and the converter AC 5303/04 for RMI.

The ADF 3500 system features an extensive automatic self-test function. After switch-on the receiver, the microprocessor and the frequency synthesizer are thoroughly checked by a test subroutine, as well as the liquid crystal LCD display.

All system will be JTSO certified for either VFR or IFR use in all types of fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft.
For truly compact installations, the ADF receiver can be combined with other Becker Prime Line equipment, such as VHF-COM, NAV-VOR/ILS navigation and ATC transponder which have similar control units, providing a pleasant presentation in the panel.

The remote receiver RA 3502-() unit can be controlled by other CDU of FMS devices and is ideally suited for use as essential sensor in flight management systems.
