Automatic N+1 Antenna Redundancy
DEV 1993
The automatic antenna redundancy system is a fully autarkic redundancy switch for antenna farms. Up to 16 fixed antennas can be grouped and backup with one 2- or 3-axis motorized antenna. The unit compare all incoming signals with a user adjustable threshold and switch autonomously to the redundant path in case of a failure.

Features

  • 950…2150 MHz
  • 50 Ohm SMA (f) or 75 Ohm F (f)
  • Automatic Switching via RF SensingRF Sensing measures the accumulated RF power over the entire bandwidth. This value is a quality indication to either just send an alarm to a M&C System or to perform a redundancy switching fully autonomously.
  • Dual Band Redundancy
  • Automatic Antenna Redundancy SystemIn a N+1 antenna configuration if the feed from a fixed antenna (N) fails, the DEV 1993 with option 30 will steer a motorised antenna (+1) to the appropriate satellite. After checking that the signals are within specification the signals from the motorised antenna will be switched to temporarily replace the fixed antenna.
  • Power Supply and Power Line RedundancyPower line redundancy is the duplication of the power line as a critical component or function of the system to increase reliability of the system, usually in the case of a backup or fail-safe. DEV provides power line redundancy out of two phases in most of their active systems.
  • DEV Web InterfaceThe DEV Web Interface is an enhanced graphical user interface (GUI) to monitor and control all functions, features and settings available for DEV devices.
  • SNMPSimple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a remote protocol used for managing devices in M&C Systems. Support
