The AZ200 Universal Switching System is a powerful and modular product designed to provide a cost effective N+1
protection scheme for a wide variety of equipment such as
modulators, demodulators, modems, converters, encoders and
The AZ200 meets simple and complex demanding protection
requirements by operating and controlling up to 36 internal
The very high modularity of the AZ200 guarantees the design
optimization for each configuration, reducing the cost and
providing a high reliability.
The internal switching modules are inserted in the AZ200
main unit, or, for complex configurations, in up to eigth AZ200
extension units, connected to the main AZ200 unit.
Switching can be done automatically through alarm contacts,
manually through the front panel or the dedicated web interface,
or remotely via a monitoring and control system.
When the automatic mode is activated, the AZ200 monitors
continuously the set of parameters governing the switching
operation in order to activate the redundant path while
triggering the loading of parameters from memory.
The AZ200 provides a wide range of switching capabilities
for almost any input and output signals used in satellite
communications. The range of switchable signals include ASI,
G.703, SDH, HSSI or IP interfaces, as well as IF, L-band or RF band
