Public safety and operational command centres often deploy a large number of control station radios (mobile transceivers) in the same control room.
RFI's Control Station Combiners (CSCs) deliver an innovative solution to combine any number of mobile or base transceivers located in the same place onto either a separate TX or RX antenna, or a combined antenna using a duplexer or the short haul CSC products. This effectively minimises the capital expenditure, simplifies the installation and cuts the maintenance cost by reducing the number of antennas and cable runs. It also ensures the reliability of the system by providing the guaranteed isolation between the radios to avoid RF interference-related products.
There are a number of CSC options available, each option providing specific functionality for the respective application.
The two primary categories are Standard and Short Haul Control Station Combiners. The short haul unit covers the full 40MHz to 960MHz frequency range, whereas the standard unit is available in different bands.
The standard CSC options cater for single Tx/Rx port inputs and separated Tx and Rx ports from either mobile or base transceivers. These alternatives also provide options for Rx amplifiers as the Tx and Rx paths are internally separated.
