UNIVERSAL REDUNDANCY SWITCH EXTENSION SWITCH
The AZ200 Universal Switching System is a powerful and modular product designed to provide a cost eff ective N+1 protection scheme for a wide variety of equipment such as modulators, demodulators, modems, converters, encoders and decoders.
The AZ200 meets simple and complex demanding protection requirements by operating and controlling up to 36 internal switching modules. The very high modularity of the AZ200 guarantees the design optimization for each confi guration, reducing the cost and providing a high reliability. The internal switching modules are inserted in the AZ200 main unit, or, for complex confi gurations, in up to eigth AZ201 extension units, connected to the main AZ200 unit. Switching can be done automatically through alarm contacts, manually through the front panel or the dedicated web interface, or remotely via a monitoring and control system. When the automatic mode is activated, the AZ200 monitors continuously the set of parameters governing the switching operation in order to activate the redundant path while triggering the loading of parameters from memory. The AZ200 provides a wide range of switching capabilities for almost any input and output signals used in satellite communications. The range of switchable signals include ASI, G.703, SDH, HSSI or IP interfaces, as well as IF, L-band or RF band signals.
