REDUNDANCY CONTROL UNIT
RCU 5000
RCU 5000
The ND SatCom RCU 5000 redundancy controller manages 1:1 redundant transmit chains and up to 3:1 redundant transmit chains as an option. It is ideally suited for the usage with ND SatCom components like TWT Amplifiers or SKYWAN.

Up to three waveguide/coax switches can be controlled manually (via the front panel), automatically or by remote interface. The 2 RU device monitors the active transmit chain and switches automatically to the redundant chain in case of a failure. A redundant power supply further increases the reliability of the RCU 5000. A large graphic display visualizes the current state of the redundant system and enables the operator to monitor and control ND SatCom components. Operators can remotely supervise and control the status of the RCU 5000 and the transmit path via the M&C system or the Network Management System SKYWAN NMS.
