Monitoring and Control

• Allows Alarm and Monitoring & Control of LNB and BDC
• Standard Fieldbus RS-485 electrical and MODBUS RTU interface

First this allows you to monitor several alarms and key parameters and therefor see faults and even predict them. This is a big help when troubleshooting, for example if the temperature is too high or you detect a voltage drop in the unit, you could remedy the issue without having to send a field technician to the site. Less downtime and less overhead costs.

M&C makes digital control simple and dynamic, for instance, switch between different bands or quickly adjust the gain accordingly. No need for special equipment or buying custom products – instead adjust control parameters to your needs.

And finally, we can use this digital interface for instant fine-tune for best performance or modify customizable parameters prior to shipping.
