The redundancy switch unit can monitor and control up to 8 P7xxx series converters plus 1 standby to provide full system redundancy. The RCU1000 series automatically configures the standby converter’s frequency and gain settings to that of any defective channel. Channel priority can be preset to ensure that high priority traffic is maintained. The RCU1000 series also incorporate input and output switching to fully isolate individual channels to ensure that any defective converter can be replaced without any disruption to signal transmission.
The RCU1000 series are 4U high 19” rack mount units with a full front panel system mimic, graphics display module and membrane keyboard which provide clear, intuitive controls and monitoring. The RCU can be controlled from the front panel or by the RS232/ 485 link to a host computer (Ethernet interface option available). In remote mode all units can be monitored while keeping switch-over automatic in case of failure.
