AIS – Ouch! Downtime

We have been offline for quite 6 days in the last week. The receiver suddenly stopped to forward data on the ethernet. The issue was caused by some blown capacitors in the DC unit. After some “recapping” the receiver was able to wrork flawlessy for a couple of hours before getting stuck again.


After investingatin the problem I decided to remove the 5V regulator and installa a cold switching unit. The receiver is back online. Let’s keep finger crossed!
