Redundant LNB systems minimize system downtime due to LNB failure by providing a spare LNB and an automatic means of switching to the spare upon failure of the primary LNB. The system consists of an outdoor plate assembly which mounts at the antenna hub and an indoor control panel.

Plate Assembly Features

  • TLNB20000X LNBs
  • High quality dual waveguide/coaxial switch
  • Manual override
  • Waveguide input flange

Control Panel Features

  • Standard 19" rack panel, 3½ " high
  • Dual, redundant power supplies
  • Worldwide universal AC input capability
  • Manual or automatic operation
  • Monitors LNB bias currents to detect faults
  • Network interface
