AUTOMATIC SWITCHING SYSTEM - ATS

The ATS is a microcontroller-based system which monitors the correct operation of the main transmitter and automatically switches to the back-up transmitter if it detects any failure in the main transmitter's operation. Directional couplers at RF level are used for failure detection and its configuration is fully programable by users: 0dB power level, intervention threshold, transmitter switching time, automatic or manual operation mode, and hot or cold standby.

The equipment can be supplied with two different possibilities:

TRANSIENT SUPPRESSOR

The transient suppressor is conceived to protect all the TV equipments connected to the mains (against power over-voltages) and it also iincludes additional protection against indirect contact. This system is fitted with high-speed A/D converters and microprocessor circuits continuously sampling the measured signals and making successive approach calculations, obtaining in this way a true r.m.s. value for the given signal, a relevant fact to perform accurate measurements in distorted waveforms without decreasing the measurements' precision.
