The RCU200 series 2+1 Redundancy switch units are designed to provide redundancy for dual-feed systems, maintaining maximum availability whilst allowing routine maintenance and repair work to be carried out on the standby unit without the normally associated down-time.
The RCU200 series maintains two converters/ Amplifiers on-line whilst the other is held in hot standby, allowing the user to select the on-line unit in either chain. The redundancy unit can be controlled from the front panel (Local mode) or by the RS232/ 485 link to a host computer (Remote mode). In remote mode, the on-line unit can be selected and monitored whilst keeping switch-over automatic in case of failure. Ethernet options are available.
In AUTO mode, the unit monitors the converter/ Amplifier alarm signals via the interface connecting cables and if a fault condition develops within either of the on-line units, the RCU200 series unit automatically switches traffic to the standby unit.
Factory alignment for the complete 2+1 system including Peak supplied high quality cables is recommended for this product to optimise Gain flatness and other parameters. If bought as a complete set of equipment, factory alignment is automatically undertaken.
