RSS6-T RF-Channel & Broadband Automatic Switching Station

The RSS6-T is designed for the redundancy of analog and QAM RF channels, as well as CATV Broadband feeds in Headend and Hub sites. The RSS automatic switching station incorporates six (6) independent A/B switches. Each switch module monitors independently the main & backup input feeds for its automatic switching operation and for remote status monitoring & alarming over TCP/IP Networks.


The RSS6-T automatic switch covers a wide input RF level range and incorporates front panel Threshold adjustment for each input being monitored. It can be used to monitor feeds before or after Broadband amplifiers, after Fiber receiver, or monitor a single TV channel or QAM channel in the 5 MHz to 1GHz CATV Band. Because it continuously monitor the main and backup inputs, it will only switch to the backup input feed when the RF level of that input is present and above its threshold setting.


The RSS6-T incorporates front-panel switch override capability as well as indication of switch position & level status. An Ethernet/IP port is available for remote monitoring, alarm and control of the RSS station via SNMP protocol & Web-page. A serial port is also available for connection to modem for dial-up DTMF-tone (phone) switch control in emergency situations. The remote control of the switch overrides in this case, the RSS switch automatic operation as well as the front panel toggle switch. Optional back-chassis terminal connections are also available for local/remote monitoring and switch control via contact closure.


Other RSS models are also offered for automatic switching applications in the Headend and remote Hub sites for the redundancy of:

     - Analog & Digital video/audio channels

     - DVB-ASI & SDI Digital TV Channel feeds

     -Split-Band RF-Broadband feeds

     - RF Broadband feeds

     - L-Band (LNB) Broadband feeds
