Broadcast Devices, Inc. announces a new product for the RF site industry, the SWP-300 RF Site Controller. The SWP-300 RF Site Controller is designed to provide complete web-enabled remote control of an RF site. The system provides direct connection to motorized RF switches and to the company's popular DPS-100D True RMS Power Meter series. Complete transmitter control and interlock management is provided by a single connector; 16 additional control outputs, 8 status inputs and 4 analog inputs are provided. When DPS-100D power meters are interconnected forward and reflected power, temperature and transmission line pressure are displayed without the need to scale or setup analog inputs for this purpose. A web interface is provided that is compatible with BDI's Stack Graphical User Interface. A simple setup program is supplied to label command buttons, status inputs and analog inputs. Accessories offered include pre-made motorized RF switch interface cable for direct plug and play connection to most RF switches offered.
The SWP-300-2 Series controls two - two position switch assemblies. - Optional RF sensors available for "Switch Saver"™ operations, auto switching upon power loss and VSWR 3 strike protection, VSWR detection for switch operation to a standby antenna. For two switch controllers connect SWITCH 1 rear panel connector to switch that will select transmitters and SWITCH 2 to the switch that will select antennas.

The SWP-300 Site Controller is a cost effective remote system for transmitter sites offering full sized remote capability in a compact package. What makes the SWP-300 so unique is that it is the only controller on the market with direct connection from 4 port switches AND the BDI DPS-100D True RMS power monitor series. Simple plug and play of all popular RF switches provides a hassle free installation. No more drudgery of interlock paths and steering. The SWP-300 does it all.
