The RCUH50 1+1 & RCUH52 2+1 redundancy control & L-Band switching units are special versions of the versatile RCUH100/200 redundancy switch units and are presented in a 1U high 19” rack mount chassis. The RCUH50, 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 RCUH50, 52 units can be controlled from the front panel or by the RS232/ RS485 or optional Ethernet link to a host computer (remote mode). In remote mode the active LNB/BUC/BDC units can be selected and monitored while keeping switch-over automatic in case of failure.
The front panel has a full user interface including graphics display and membrane keypad.
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.
