RSS-3L L-Band Dual Automatic Switch

The RSS-3L station incorporates two (2) automatic A/B switches, which can be operated independently or for tandem switching. The RSS-2L is intended to provide the redundancy to a Horizontal & Vertical LNB feeds from a satellite dish. For other applications requiring a larger number of L-Band redundancy switches, such as the backup of LNB feeds of a dish farm from a SimulSat or a Fiber transport, the highly integrated RSS-6L housing six (6) switches is recommended.


The RSS-3L monitors the Broadband level of the L-Band. It monitors independently the main & backup L-Band input feeds of each switch module for automatic operation and alarming. Threshold level adjustments are accessible from the front panel independently for main and backup inputs of each switch module. The RSS switch returns automatically to the main input on signal restoration above the Threshold level setting, with a built-in Hysterisis. It will also prevent switching to the backup input if its level is below its Threhold setting.


Front panel status LED and toggle override/control switch are available for local monitoring and switch control, with back-chassis terminal connections for remote Status Monitoring of signal presence & switch position and for remote Switch Control of each individual switch module. In addition an Ethernet and RS-232 ports are available for remote switch monitor & control over the Network from any Web Browser or via SNMP protocol, sending trap alarms. The dial-up connection allows remote DTMF-tone phone (switch) control.


The RSS-3L offers excellent specifications with minimum insertion loss and a high isolation environment between inputs in the 950–1450MHz L-Band.
