GLOBUSS the unique M&C-Solution

Datasheet PDF-Logo

Demo request: E-Mail

GLOBUSS was developed to monitor and control devices from different manufacturers. The software visualizes the system almost in real-time, regarding the status and the functions of all integrated components. By mouseclick the user is able to switch not only the receiving and/or the transmitting equipment, also all associated signal routing equipments are switched and controlled automatically. The software is extremely reliable and it meets military standards.

Client / Server Monitoring and Control Software
GGLOBUSS (GloboTech Universal System Software) is a modern 32bit Windows XP Software Package, which was developed to 100% by GloboTech. It includes several Application- and Function Modules, which are expanded continuously.

Client / Server - Concept
GLOBUSS is realized as a Client/Server-Concept. The Server works in the background and collects all necessary data and manages them. The Client has an user interface to manage the users commands and brings all server information to the GUI.
The concept gives the possibility that several clients can connect to the server, location independent. All users have (different) access rights, which can be configured.

Communication Channels
The Servers and the Clients are connected with communication channels. The kind of connections can be realized with Ethernet, ISDN or RS-232. This flexibility gives the possibility to monitor and control the devices over long distances.
The connections are permanently monitored and in case of a failure, they are rearranged or,if this is not possible, they are restarted with a redundant link.

Database
GLOBUSS uses a relational Database. All states of the devices are stored in the database and are immediately available for all connected clients, so all the clients and their databases are up to date.
All transponder data can be updated over the internet, so they are all available for all devices in any location.
Programming Language
The programming of GLOBUSS is object oriented. For the server modules, C++ is used, the user friendly clients are programmed in C# (.net).

Device Monitoring and Control
The Software is modular can be expanded very easily. All devices, which are using a defined interface (RS-232, RS-485, IEEE, USB, Firewire etc.) and a defined protocol, can be monitored and controlled.
GLOBUSS is mainly used when devices from different manufacturer must be controlled in a system.
 

The following device modules are currently available:

Reliability of Operation
GLOBUSS is designed for professional use. Highest reliability has absolute priority. The software is developed and programmed as Multithreading / Multitasking application. In particular the servers, which are often located at unmanned locations, the reliability is the most important.  All system relevant tasks und processes are monitored continuously by  Process-Guards, which are restarting the servers, if necessary.
Further more, the servers and the clients can be monitored and updated.

Application Exampels
-
Satellite-Earth Stations
- Terrestrial Transmitter- and Receive plants
- Plant facilities
- Safety installations

GLOBUSS - Client Surface

License
The License for the GLOBUSS Software depends on the quantity of the required clients and servers.

Integration of new Devices
New devices can be integrated very easily into GLOBUSS, when the interface and protocol is known.
Possible Interfaces are: Digital I/O, USB, RS232, RS485,GPIB, Ethernet.

Additional options:
-
3- Axis support (control via Antenna Remote Controller ARC-40)
- DiSEqC Switch (for Dual-Feed C-/Ku-Band)
- IRD/Sat-Modem control
- Support of SatService ACU (to control Andrew Motorization etc.)
- Support of Orbit FR Antenna Controller (to control Orbit FR Positioner)
- Integration of Antenna Heating Controller (support of AHC-11)
- Autotracking
- L-Band Matrix
- A/V Matrix
- Spectrum Analyzer
