Key Facts

The R&S®GB4000T control unit provides air traffic controllers with a secure and easy-to-use tool for daily operation of their radios.

The R&S®GB4000T control unit is designed for the remote control of R&S®Series4200 radios for air traffic control (ATC) communications. The control unit is based on an industrial PC with integrated 7" touch panel display, which is used for entering information to control the radio. The R&S®GB4000T is connected to the radio via an IP network, allowing users to monitor the status of the radio and to set operational parameters such as frequency, squelch, etc.

Features & Benefits

  • Control of up to nine user-configurable R&S®Series4200 radios via LAN
  • Display of the radio status (Go/NoGo, carrier, squelch) for fast overview
  • Direct selection of six user-configurable channels per radio for quick and safe operation
  • Input and configuration via touch panel with graphical user interface for eliminating external keyboard and mouse
  • Three user levels i.e., controller, supervisor, administrator, for optimized user-specific HMI
  • Separate, password-protected access to each user level for increased safety
  • Simple configuration of the R&S®GB4000T without external tools for easier use
  • Convection cooling (no fan) for higher MTBF
  • Operating system and application software stored on compact flash card (no hard disk drive) for improved reliability
  • Installable in 19" rack (with adapter) or direct installation in operator consoles for maximum deployment flexibility
  • Support for dual DC power supply for redundancy
