Paradise Datacom’s Redundant Control Panel for Dual 1:1
Systems (RCPD-1100-LX) provides control of an entire VSAT
Available in two models, the RCPD-1100-L1 model is used in
single L-band source systems; the RCPD-1100-L2 model is
used in dual L-band source systems.
Its combination of switch drive output and LNB bias, along with
its capacity for external alarm inputs, enable the RCPD-1100 to
be enabled in a variety of system configurations.
To achieve this functionality, the RCPD-1100 can control two
waveguide switches for the outdoor portion of the system, and
optionally two coaxial switches at the system input.
Control of the RCPD-1100 can be handled through front panel
operation, or remotely through a parallel or serial connection to
Two separate power supplies are provided for fully redundant
operation. Either of the two supplies is capable of operating the
system and its associated switches.
If fault alarms are detected in the on-line transceiver system,
the RCPD-1100 can be programmed to provide immediate
switchover to the stand-by transceiver.
The front panel displays
which unit in a redundant
system is online, and allows
