The receiver interfaces to a Windows-compatible PC via USB 3.0, or 1 Gb Ethernet LAN port with PoE (Power over Ethernet functionality according to IEEE 802.3at standard).
For the highest bandwidth use, connection is best via USB3 for short distances (up to 3m). As the G65DDCe is equipped with an Ethernet socket, semi-remote connection to a computer is possible via a long Ethernet cable (up to 100m in length). For longer distances or when located in a busy or remote network, the Networking CSO option is recommended.
The receiver is very well shielded against interference, making it possible to operate in a noisy computer environment. Its modest power requirements are less than 12 watts. While connected via a LAN interface, thanks to PoE built-in functionality, the receiver can be operated and powered via a long Ethernet cable connection.
Yet again, this is the first time a receiver of such advanced specification and unique combination of features is being offered to the general marketplace.
The receiver is intended for government, military, security, surveillance, broadcast monitoring, industrial and demanding consumer applications.
Easily installed to any modern computer with the USB or Ethernet LAN interface, the Excalibur Sigma receiver represents an excellent multi-purpose mobile and stationary solution for advanced HF/VHF monitoring and surveillance.
