The RCU50 1+1 and RCU52 2+1 redundancy control and L-Band switching units are special versions of the versatile RCU100/200 redundancy switch units and are presented in a 1U high 19” rack mount chassis. The RCU50, 52 units are designed to power and monitor remote mounted Low Noise Blocks (LNB’s), Block UpConverters (BUC’s) or Block DownConverters (BDC’s) and drive remote mounted coaxial or waveguide switches.
A range of 10MHz reference signal generation, locking and pass through options can also be provided to drive the BUC/ BDC/ LNB units.
The RCU50, 52 units can be controlled from the front panel or by the RS232/ RS485 link to a host computer. In remote mode the active LNB/BUC/BDC units can be selected and monitored while keeping switch-over automatic in case of failure.
The flexibility of the design allows for customization, so please consult the factory if the features that you require are not shown on this data sheet.
