Redundancy Switching

redundancy switch example Fundamentally, a redundancy switch has a 2x1 (1x2) arrangement. Critical applications require a secondary set of equipment (redundant). Automated redundancy switching is specifically designed to connect to both the primary and secondary equipment, and if there is a failure in the "primary" equipment, the backup is switched in. Some of the higher level redundancy switch units listed below automatically switch with an alarm input (10942B through 10948B), while others get remote control commands for the backup switchover.

Shown in the table below are various types of switching, but what they all have in common is that offer a 2x1 (1x2) configuration.

It should be noted that the 10942B and 10943B units (IF and L-Band respectively) also contain a unique feature to drastically reduce redundancy costs. They were designed to provide a 1:4 redundancy function as well as 1:1. What this means is that there is ONE shared piece of redundant equipment that can be switched in as backup for every FOUR primary. Further information about this is shown in the 10942B and 10943B sections.

Shown in the table below are all our various types of redundancy switching products. Use the various search features below to find what you need.
