WooshCom's 1U chassis is the perfect solution for the operator who likes clean headend wiring. It allows the typical 18 to 20 satellite receivers that are in a rack to have their ASI's combined together while keeping all the wiring in the rack. The entire contents of the satellite receivers is then provided on a single Gig-E connection coming out of the rack. Multiple racks may be further combined using the CSX-1641s cascading capability.
The SHF-005 1U Chassis will accommodate up to 5 CSX-1641 modules thereby supporting from 4 to 20 ASI ports. The entire chassis may me managed by a single Ethernet connection.
Dual redundant power supplies are supported by this chassis providing power from an AC or a -48VDC source. Power supplies may be field replaced by a headend technician without taking any of the CSX-1641 modules out of service. This enables a power supply fault to be rectified while providing continuous service to your customers.
