sat-nms IO-FEP MNC Front-end Processor

sat-nms MNC Title

The sat-nms IO-FEP MNC Front-end Processor interfaces to any low level interface commonly used in satellite ground stations like equipment alarm contacts, waveguide- or coaxial-switches and other status signals. It provides opto-coupled in- and outputs and potential free relay output contacts. All these interfaces are then monitored and controlled locally in the sat-nms IO-FEP.

You can also integrate the sat-nms IO-FEP seamlessly in our sat-nms MNC. But also the integration in other monitoring solutions is possible because of SNMP, HTTP and RS232 interfaces. The sat-nms IO-FEP works also as a stand-alone system with a user-friendly web browser interface and an integrated event and alarm log.

sat-nms IO-FEP Key Features

  • Ethernet interface for SNMP and HTTP
  • Web browser user interface
  • Serial RS232 interface
  • 32 or 48 digital inputs
  • 6 relay outputs and 10 opto-coupler outputs
  • 8 or 16 connectors for waveguide switches
  • Includes redundancy switching functionality
  • Supports RF inhibit contacts of waveguide switches and HPAs
  • Including temperature measurement with up to 4 external PT-1000 sensors
  • Integrated alarm/ event logging
  • Compact design and mounted on a DIN-rail
  • Interfaces to any higher level M&C System

sat-nms IO-FEP applications

  • VSAT-Hub
  • SNG, SNG Central Station
  • TV-Uplink
  • Teleport
  • Monitoring of alarm contacts
  • Control of waveguide and coaxial switches
  • Redundancy switching with inhibit
  • Independend protection switching
