INSTOCK Wireless now offering Current Steering GPS and L-Band Splitter Combiners with diode protection for fail-safe DC redundancy.
Online PR News – 04-October-2018 – Boonton, NJ – Current steering is the directing of DC current in a preferred direction, by use of specially designed diodes, and the restriction of current flow in the opposite direction. With diodes in series with each of the combiner ports, the DC supplied to these ports travels only to the common antenna port and does not interfere or back-feed the other DC supply. In contrast, however, the diodes do not restrict or impede in any way the bi-directional RF transmission capability of the splitter combiner.
This innovative new product is exactly what you need in your GPS/GNSS and L-Band systems for uninterrupted, 24/7 operation without worrying about down-time or equipment damage. Built-in diode protection serves as a fail-safe mechanism providing DC redundancy to your amplified or active antenna. If one of your power sources or receivers fail, the other continues powering the active antenna maintaining uninterrupted systems operation.
