Terrasat’s Receive 1:1 X-Band LNB Redundancy System is a automatic redundancy switching system that incorporates a RX 1:1 interface box, waveguide switch and interconnecting cables to deliver a completely automatic LNB redundancy system. The Terrasat Receive 1:1 X-Band LNB Redundancy System uses a redundancy switching function and is entirely independent from the transmit system so that the operator is not encumbered with a chain-switching situation. Terrasat’s Receive 1:1 X-Band LNB Redundancy System uses a SNMP-compliant Ethernet interface and enables local and remote monitoring & management.
The interface box provides LNB monitoring, waveguide switching and user interfaces. Several operating parameters are monitored including 10MHz reference signal, LNB supply voltage, LNB current consumption, and input compo-site power level. The user can set high and low threshold values for monitored parameters and alarms are configurable to enable selection of specific alarms and thresholds that will trigger a switchover.
Monitoring and control is available using a convenient TCP/IP interface supported by embedded webpages. The TCP/IP interface enables users to monitor the system remotely from a PC and /or via a LAN. M&C is also available via RS232/485 and separate handheld terminal. Seven LED’s provide visual indication of status.

Terrasat Communications, a privately-owned US company, has been manufacturing microwave & satellite RF equipment since 1994. Terrasat started with custom engineered microwave RF modules & Block Up Converters (BUCs). Today, Terrasat produces the most innovative BUCs on the market; the IBUC–the Intelligent BUC. Unlike the typical BUC, the IBUC includes multiple sensors and a powerful micro-processor for performance improvement & feature enhancements. All IBUC models include a web interface for extensive Management & Control and are SNMP-compliant for easy interface with any NMS.
