Site remote control and monitoring systems specialist Burk Technology will enlighten the NAB Show audience with the latest member of its ARC Plus family of remote site monitoring and control equipment, Arcturus.
Arcturus is a complete, turnkey solution providing protection and safety for multiplexed antenna sites, Burk says. It will monitor important parameters and provide needed action to minimizing damage to combiners, transmission lines or antennas. The company says that transmitter interlocks are controlled by Burk’s new high-speed VSWR protection.
Burk Vice President Chief Technology Officer Paul Shulins said of Arcturus, “The system’s built-in trend analysis uses proprietary algorithms to predict out of tolerance conditions for VSWR, line pressure, and room temperatures, allowing operators to take corrective action before safe operating levels are exceeded.”
He added, “Arcturus protects your RF plant and allows engineers and site managers to precisely monitor their entire facilities remotely or in person.”
