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 a primary LNB. A 1:1 system provides one spare LNB for one primary LNB. A 1:2 system provides a spare LNB for either of two primary LNBs. The systems consist of an outdoor plate assembly which mounts at the antenna hub, an indoor control panel and interconnecting control cable.

Plate Assembly Features

  • Norsat Ku-Band PLL or externally referenced LNBs
  • High quality dual waveguide/coaxial switches
  • Manual override
  • Waveguide input flanges
  • Transmit reject filter(s), input crossguide coupler(s), input isolator(s), and offline I/O options available

Redundancy Controller Features

  • 10/100 Base T Ethernet network interface
  • Supports SNMP v1, v2c, and v3
  • Rack-mount chassis, 19" wide, 1¾" (1 RU) high
  • Dual, redundant power supplies
  • Manual or automatic operation
  • Monitors unit currents, external alarms, or both
  • Automatically switches RF path to standby unit when unit failure occurs
  • User-selectable RS-232/-422/-485 serial I/O M&C interface
  • Parallel I/O M&C interface
  • Menu-driven user configuration of all options
  • Front panel graphically depicts switch positions and unit status
  • Worldwide universal AC input capability standard; consult factory for DC prime power
  • Audible alarm
  • CE certified and RoHS compliant; EAR 99
