The JAX-9B weather facsimile receiver is a very compact and lightweight solution, incorporating a set of enhanced features that allows for flexible operation.
The received fax broadcasts are recorded on thermal recording paper, using a thermal head with less moving parts. JRC integrated an automatic frequency selection, allowing for optimised receiving. The JAX-9B can receive in four different modes.
Automatic recording All operations can be remotely controlled to automatically start up, set parameters, receiving images, feed paper, and stop by remote signals from the
broadcasting stations. Only halftone recording is manually controlled.
Manual recording You can manually set the index of co-operation (IOC), scanning speed, and the halftone recording. The JAX-9B automatically records the stops in this mode.
Forced recording This is an extensive function of the automatic recording mode. The JAX-9B can manually record while neither in automatic or manual recording mode, also while broadcasting is in progress. Phasing is done manually. It also adopts to an unique system to terminate phase matching instantaneously.
Timer programme recording The period of the start and stop modes, station frequencies, and half-tone on/off are easy programmable. Whilst combined with the fully automatic mode, and unattended, error-free operation is made possible.
