Below Deck Unit (BDU)

The BDU is the central unit in the system. It contains all user interfaces and handles all communication between the ADU and the local communication units (phones, computers etc.). The BDU has built-in tests (BITE) for Power-On Self-Test (POST) and Continuous Monitoring (CM). It comes in two versions, one designed for wall or desktop installation, and one designed for installation in a 19” rack.

The SAILOR 4300 L-Band System provides up to 3 IP voice calls and data sessions for multiple users simultaneous. The BDU has three user LAN ports for user data traffic, voice and data. The data session activation can be set to automatic or manual mode. A data session can be activated automatically at start-up or manually.
