The SAM-2 Supervised Antenna Module is an intelligent addressable device that it supervised by a BDA Buddy BBAS-1 Antenna Supervision Module. The BBAS-1 provides a Signaling Line Circuit that is electrically combined with the radio frequency signals delivered to each antenna in a building’s Distributed Antenna System. Up to 125 SAM-2 devices can be monitored by a single BBAS-1. The SLC communication signal passes through all coaxial wiring and signal splitting equipment and thus also monitors all passive equipment for integrity. Antenna supervision status is monitored by the BBAS-1, reported to the BBCPU-1 and is displayed on the BBGUI-1 Graphical User Interface. This allows location information pertaining to antennas that have failed to be presented to Firefighter personnel so that they can assess locations in the building that could be lacking appropriate RF coverage, possibly inhibiting communication capabilities of wireless radio devices.
