WORK Microwave Redundant Switches installed

The WORK Microwave redundancy switch 1:1 is used for 1:1 redundancy configuration for Upconverters, Downconverters, Modulator-Upconverters, Transport Stream Modulators, Demodulators, and Modems. It comes standard with a coaxial signal switch for the input signal and a coaxial signal switch for the output signal. For IP modem applications a similar device, RSCI1 is available.

LNAs or even HPAs can be included within the system, as the switch is capable to control external waveguide transfer switches as option. DC power to LNAs can also be provided as option. The switch accepts alarm signals from two types of equipment, so that it can be used for redundancy configurations with e.g. a video encoder and a modulator within one chain.

The unit can be controlled from the front panel or remotely via RS 232, RS422/485, or IP over Ethernet.
