Callisto

LNA Redundancy System


RF Switching System for LNA Redundancy


Callisto is able to offer a solution for controlling RF switching of LNAs for redundancy.

The basic controller unit is a 19" rack mountable unit which contains Redundant power supplies and control circuits for 2 or 3 LNA together with the RF switches.

The design is modular and can be configured for the customer's requirements.

Key Features:
  • Remote and local indicators.
  • Automatic or manual switchover.
  • LNA power supplies can be built-in.
  • LNA fault detection for built-in PSUs
  • Redundant mains powered.
  • 19" rack mount chassis.
  • Controls RF switches for all LNA band (S, X, K, Ka).
