CS40-Series ProtectLink Class A & B BDAs

The Westell ProtectLink Public Safety BDAs represent the next revolution in Public Safety DAS design, offering the most flexible platform available on the market, and are an integral part of any NFPA complaint ERCES / ERRCS (Emergency Responder Radio Enhancement System).

The ProtectLink™ platform includes 700/800MHz band support, 0.5, 1, and 2.5 watt RF output options, Class A or Class B operation, single-band or dual-band operation, and it is software license upgradeable.

With the addition of an Optical Master Unit the same ProtectLink BDA can expand to support a fiber distributed architecture system (Fiber DAS) with Class A Optical Remote or Class B Optical Remote.

All versions include a full-featured, easy to use web GUI. The product also includes adjustable frequency filters, intelligent oscillation management, dedicated FirstNet® filter profile, built-in isolation test, NFPA/UL2524 alarm capabilities, built-in annunciator communication link with an optional remote annunciator panel, built-in battery backup circuitry, and accessory outputs for future enhancement to add fiber DAS remotes.
