1:1 SHF Protection Switch

The APS5000 is a compact ½ rack width 1RU SHF Protection Switch covering C through to DBS TX Bands. The APS5000 is typically, but not exclusively, used with a pair of AUC58xx Advent BUCs to provide 1:1 protection. This is normally under control from a ASC5000 System Controller although the APS can function “stand-alone”.
