Griffin (Model GRF-C900-1U) is a compact 1U chassis which can hold 2 hot-swap 2x1 redundancy switch modules.

Different switch modules can be fitted dependent on application, and can be switched independently (individual mode) or together (simultaneous mode).

Switching may be triggered by front panel, RF level detection, alarm contacts or NMS. When operating in Auto mode, modules with RF level detection will switch from main to standby on detection of a fault on the main. Switch back to the main path is configurable. The default setting is for the unit to latch to the standby path and not automatically switch back to the main path if the RF signal is restored.

The chassis features dual redundant PSUs and hot-swap switch modules.
