Here are the answers to some common questions we receive:
What is the CCU?
CCU is Kathrein Central Control Unit 86010006 / 86010026, an AISG controller that is 19in rack mount and AC Powered. This product is a legacy controller that can be network integrated. Can be used to configure all Kathrein Antennas and many 3rd Party antennas.
How to connect Kathrein CCU with computer? (this replaces why can I not see any antennas with my ccu….)
You will need to have CCU powered with AC or DC power. You will also need a RJ45 cable between CCU and computer. See the manual for more information. You will need permission to edit your IP address on computer network connection.
Most common problem is the laptop computer is not Windows 7 or 8 or is not configured properly.
Second most common is USB drivers need to be updated.
Here is a quick guide for connection, configuration and USB settings.
How do I scan and control other vendor antennas with CCU?
CCU has been tested with many other vendor antennas. To do this follow options shown in quick guide below. Note that Kathrein does not guarantee full interoperability with non-Kathrein products. If a product cannot be scanned, we recommend you contact that company support.
Flexret allows a single AISG control point to control multiple arrays. Some Base station systems are picky about reading in single mode or multimode. Single mode is the default but can be changed. Below are quick guides for the options.
