The Series 500 Recovery Switching System supports up to 64 RSS500 chassis
containing up to 2048 switching circuits. Each RSS500 chassis accommodates
up to 16 Switching Interface Cards and one Control Card. Interface cards
contain one or two switching circuits.
Circuits may be switched individually (AB switching), in selected
groups within one or across several chassis, or fully gang switched across
an entire system of RSS500 chassis. Each RSS500 chassis has a security key
switch on the front panel to lock/unlock local switch operations, preventing
unauthorized local switching. LEDs on the front-panel show the current switch
with Hadax 5000 Series
The RSS500 Switching interface cards are compatible with the Hadax 5000
Series Automatic Switching System.
Switching Interface Cards
Fully transparent to all communication speeds, protocols and formats. Cards
contain latching relays to maintain the last switched position during power
loss. Interfaces include RS-232/V.24, RS-449, RS-530, NTDS Fast, BNC, V.35,
T1, RJ-11, RJ-45 (Cat-5) and other configurations. Coax and RJ-11/RJ-45
(Cat-5) come in dual channels per card, increasing the channel density per
chassis. Switching Interface Cards can be mixed in the RSS500 chassis. The
501-RM Rack Mount provides for SCSI 1, 2 and 3 interfaces as well as DB50.
For power backup, each RSS500 chassis may contain a second Power Supply
Module (PSM) or may be connected to a rack mounted Redundant Power Supply
(RPS), which can provide power for up to eight chassis. Voltage options
include 110VAC/220VAC or -48VDC.
In the 7" high RSS500 chassis, up to 32 switched channels
can be accomplished. In the 8.75" high chassis, up to 16 switched channels
can be accomplished.
