The SC switch control platform is designed for a multitude of switching applications in RF systems. Each of the main chassis is equipped with five (5), rear-facing, user-configurable slots. Individual slots or groups of slots can be populated with a variety of SCM series RF switch modules.

The Model SC2000 can be fiber-optically combined with up to seven (7) model SCX2000 expansion units. The model SCX2000 is mechanically identical to the model SC2000, but does not contain a control panel. Instead, control is provided by the connected model SC2000. For backward compatibility with the legacy model SC1000, the model SCP2000 was created. This model provides identical switch configuration and operation to the legacy model SC1000 and its modifications (M1 – M5).

All of these switch controller systems can be controlled either manually, using the provided color LCD touch display, or remotely, using any of the four provided remote ports (USB, GPIB, RS-232, and Ethernet).

System interlock capability is provided on the Models SC2000 and SCP2000 by sensing switch closures on three independent inputs. Three separate user definable configurations are provided for times when interlock switch closures are not sensed.

A user defined “safe” configuration is also provided for use during signal re-routing in order to assure cold switching of any attached amplifiers and loads. In addition to the three interlock configurations and single “safe” configuration, eight (8) user configurations can be saved and recalled for ease of use in complex systems.

A positive 24 VDC signal along with four (4) open drain outputs, and four (4) digital outputs (TTL) are supplied for applications such as external switch/relay control.

The export classification for this equipment is EAR99.

SC2000
RF switch control platform base unit. Can be controlled manually via front panel touch display or via four (4) provided remote ports. The SC2000 has five (5) user configurable module slots on the rear panel.

SCX2000
RF switch control platform sub unit. The SCX2000 does not have a control panel or remote control ports and therefore must be connected to a Model SC2000 for local or remote control. The SCX2000 has five (5) user configurable module slots on the rear panel.

SCP2000
RF switch control platform base unit configured to imitate a legacy Model SC1000. Can be controlled manually via front panel touch display or via four (4) provided remote ports. The SCP2000 module slots are populated to provide drop-in replacement of the Model SC1000 and any of its associated modifications (M1–M5).
