HILTRON REPORTS STRONG SALES OF HCS4 SATELLITE SYSTEM CONTROLLER
Hiltron Communications, an active satellite system integrator, manufacturer and distributor, has reported strong demand for its HCS-4 satcom system controller which has been integrated into various projects for customers in Europe, the Middle East and Far East.
An innovative recent implementation has been for one of the Middle East’s largest telecommunication service-providers. This includes a switching and control system for Swedish Microwave optical low noise block downconverters.
The HCS-4 powers and monitors the downconverters, checking for faults such as channel interrupts. If an interrupt is detected, the HCS-4 automatically switches to a backup signal source. Three down-converters are connected via optical fibre in a two-active-plusone-backup configuration.
