The R.L. Drake SCTeci is a professional quality digital head end Ethernet control interface which communicates with the Drake family of transcoders via their respective RS232 serial interfaces. The SCTeci then acts as a Ethernet server allowing a remote computer to access the data through the Internet or local area network using a standard web browser.
Each SCTeci has its own individual MAC address. One SCTeci is utilized for all SCT family transcoders in a headend.
The front panel features status lights as well as a front panel LCD display for programming and status monitoring. Access to the SCTeci can be password protected to prevent unauthorized access or programming changes.
