SED's Mon-A-Co™ monitor and control system is a full-featured, high-performance system offering unparalleled control, flexibility and scalability for a wide range of applications including teleports, broadcast facilities, satellite uplink facilities, satellite TT&C systems, terrestrial infrastructure and centrally managed multi-site operations.
Mon-A-Co™ includes a trending capability allowing you to easily track down equipment problems in your network. The Integrated Carrier Monitoring function allows you to identify problems on critical carriers before your customers do.
Costly M&C upgrades to accommodate equipment changes are a thing of the past. The Mon-A-Co™ System Builder allows you to easily add new equipment, modify displays and create new ones by dragging and dropping icons from an extensive pre-installed library.
Mon-A-Co™ supports virtually any interface standard, from RS-232 to Ethernet. It also provides redundancy management of the equipment in your network.
SED provides all the hardware required to interface with your equipment. Our Monitor and Control Unit (MCU) handles all types of discrete inputs (96) and outputs (64) including control of all types of coaxial or waveguide switches. The Mini-MCU is a small form factor version of SED’s MCU, offering a cost-effective alternative for compact M&C applications. It has fewer inputs (16) and outputs (12) but offers the same flexibility in terms of input monitoring and output drive capability.
Recent monitor and control system projectThe Intelsat M&C systems supplied by SED monitor and control RF equipment through serial and digital I/O interfaces in earth stations in South Africa, Argentina, Germany, and California with remote access through Intelsat's facility in Washington, DC.
This is what Intelsat has to say about SED's Monitor and Control System:
"We were impressed with the functions, flexibility and reliability of the first systems SED provided for South African and Argentinean installations. That's why we standardized on SED's MCS for use in our other stations around the world. The recent successful implementation of another system in Germany further confirms that we think going with SED was the right decision for us."
