Eight Input Remote Antenna Controller for Microwave Tracking, Transmit and Receive Sites
The S8000 is designed as the replacement for Troll’s BAS era S750 and S350 remote antenna site controllers. The S8000 is a completely modern IP-based remote controller that can interface with legacy remote site infrastructure while providing a direct Ethernet or serial interface to Troll’s latest diversity and tracking antenna products.
The S8000 provides an intuitive Graphic User Interface designed to provide data link information, improved automation, diagnostics and test. S8000 features a local touchscreen monitor and decoder with outputs for HDMI or composite video. An eight-port Ethernet switch is included to connect external receivers, transmitters, switchers and many other digital devices commonly found at remote antenna sites.
To add customer specific functionality, Troll provides ConTroll-PACs. A ConTroll-PAC is a hardware and/or software package designed to remotely control additional digital devices at individual antenna sites. In the past, ConTroll-PACs have been used to control third-party transmitters, encoders, decoders, encryption, decryption, spectrum viewers, switchers and routers located at remote antenna sites. This enables customers with legacy equipment to integrate these and other digital devices using Troll’s proven communication architecture that includes built-in monitoring, diagnostics and test.
The S8000 provides advanced communications options: Ethernet, serial, and dial-up, as well as legacy 2 wire and 4 wire circuits if necessary.
Like all Troll equipment, the S8000 was designed to be rugged and reliable for years of service in adverse environments. Careful attention to design and manufacture assure performance and reliability, especially in highly saturated RF environments like ENG and XNG antenna sites.
