RipEX2-HS

|Fully redundant Hot-Standby Master Station|

RipEX2-HS

  • 1+1 hot redundancy
  • Two standard RipEX units inside
  • Each unit powered by independent power supply
  • AC/DC power supply options
  • Automatic changeover
  • Switch-over time < 2 s
  • Auto toggle mode
  • 4x HW alarm output
  • 19´ rack 3U

RipEX-HS is a hot standby master station, 1+1 redundant, fully monitored, hot swappable equipment.

It is assembled with two standard RipEX units, each powered by its own independent power supply. A controller takes care of automatic changeover in case of failure. Changeover conditions are widely configurable. Since both units are booted and use identical MAC addresses, exceptional switch-over time of less than 2s is achieved.

Fully redundant option (RipEX2-RD) without any controller and switching is available for RipEX2. Redundant connection of connected technology and redundant antennas are mandatory whereas they are optional for RipEX2-HS.

LED panels, HW alarm outputs, SNMP traps and standard RipEX units inside makes RipEX-HS configuration and control quite easy and maintenance can be done by anyone familiar with RipEX.

PRODUCT VIDEO

There are two standard RipEX units with identical configurations inside RipEX-HS. Both units are booted, however only one is active. The interfaces – Ethernet, COM, (SFP), Antenna of the second unit are disconnected.

When the active unit status changes to “down” (when a controlled value exceeds the respective threshold), the controller automatically switches all interfaces to the second unit and it takes over all functions. Since both units are using the same MAC addresses (MAC cloning), there is a minimal drop-out while switching, less than 2s.

Possible controlled values are:

RSS, DQ, TXLost[%] – lost packets on Radio channel, Ucc – power voltage, Temp – inside temperature, PWR – RF power, VSWR – reflected RF power, ETH[Rx/Tx], COM1[Rx/Tx], COM2[Rx/Tx] – No of received/transmitted packets on respective interfaces

SNMP trap with each switch-over can be sent (depending on configuration) to central SNMP management.

RipEX2-HS – DI/DO interfaces on RipEX2 units are used for interconnection with controller, i.e. not available for user. Sleep input, HW alarm input and output on Power and control connector on RipEX2 units are switched and can be used by user. They are available on DC Power and control connector on controller.

  • Auto – primary active is RipEX “A”, when it fails, controller automatically switches-over to RipEX “B”
  • Auto toggle – the same as Auto mode, in addition after set time controller automatically switches-over to RipEX “B”, even if “A” doesn’t have any alarm and uses “B” for set period in order to confirm that RipEX “B” is fully ready-to-operate
  • A – only RipEX “A” is active and controller will never switch to RipEX “B”
  • B – only RipEX “B” is active and controller will never switch to RipEX “A”
  • Operating modes can be set by HW switch on the front panel. RipEX2-HS “Auto toggle” mode is configured by SW when “Auto” is set on the switch.
