ASC Signal released new redundancy technology and product options reportedly designed to provide simplified, seamless switching of virtually any active radio frequency component on the company’s fixed and transportable Earth station antennas.
ASC’s new technology reportedly incorporates complex redundancy switching with 1:1 and 1:2 capabilities within the active RF chain in a simplified, integrated and easy-to-deploy architecture
Additionally, these new capabilities support, the company claims, virtually any antenna system, regardless of manufacturer, when used in conjunction with ASC’s antenna controller products.
As user requirements for increasingly complex Earth station transmission systems expand, ASC Signal has focused, according to the company spokesman, on designing less-complicated and more robust and beneficial features for its Next Generation Controller (NGC). ASC’s new technology reportedly incorporates complex redundancy switching with 1:1 and 1:2 capabilities within the active RF chain in a simplified, integrated and easy-to-deploy architecture.
This provides, the manufacturer claims, a smoothly interfaced, highly integrated and cost-effective package that gives users expanded access, control and monitoring of their RF equipment operation, along with enhanced remote accessibility. ASC’s design philosophy reportedly ensures that the NGC provides a growing number of features within a unified control architecture.
“The advanced technology of our latest NGC option quickly and easily provides redundancy packages for LNAs, LNBs, BUCs, BDCs and other active electronics, and builds upon our already feature-rich Next Generation Controller,” said Keith Buckley, president and CEO of ASC Signal. “The ASC team understands that customers need cutting-edge antenna technology that is cost-effective, flexible and adaptable to their changing requirements. Today’s government and commercial users are keenly focused on budgetary and cost issues; they will benefit the most from these expanded and simplified technological capabilities that support reliable, critical communications around the world.”
