    Plug-in Controller & CPU

    Detailed Description

    Today's satellite communication, ATE and broadcast applications demand reliability and stability. Our extensive C3 development process has resulted in an elegant and dependable platform. When we provide switching and distribution equipment solutions for these critical applications, our C3 controller CPU is at the heart.

    The C3 has built-in 10/100/1G Ethernet and multi-serial (RS-232C, RS-422A & RS-485) ports to provide remote access and control for automating your signal connections. Sophisticated features like SNMP (v1/v2C/v3) IPv4, and IPv6 are standard. For popular connection schemes, you can also store and recall your own popular connectivity layouts in the on-board flash. A microSD chip can be added for applications where system settings must remain in a secure or secret facility.

    The built-in web browser provides easy setup and control without any additional software, or the unit comes with a 30-Day free trial of our control and monitor software package called RouteWarePRO.

    As demonstrated in the picture to the left, our larger systems accept two of the C3 controllers for applications that require hot-swap redundancy. Not only does this provide a redundant controller, but a redundant set of control ports as well.


    What's Included

    The C3 Controller and CPU is typically integrated within a system design, and can also be ordered as spares or for system upgrades. The following items are included when ordered in a system:

  • Resource disc
  • Warranty registration card
  • Lifetime technical support
  • Free firmware updates


    Care should be given to the Resource Disc as this has all documentation and instructions for the system. Electronic copies of the Operations Manual and Programmers Guide are included, as well as RouteWarePRO Control and Monitoring Software with a 30-Day free trial offer.
