L-band Matrix 8 х 16 M0816D2UFL-21161-B5B5
L-band Matrix M0816D2UFL-21161-B5B5: 8 Inputs x 16 Outputs Distributive with dual redundant power supplies, LNB Powering and 50 Ω BNC connectors
ETL has a broad L-band Switch Matrix and L-band Router range for Satellite communications, including the hot-swap NiGMa L-band Matrix which is used for many high resilience high performance applications.
This smaller range of distributive L-band Matrix comes in a variety of size configurations which are generally linked to original design applications. The 2U 8x8 L-band Matrix and 3U 16x16 L-band Matrix are standard building blocks for most applications with dual redundant PSU's, a CPU and local control panel. Remote control is via serial or Ethernet.
More specialist is the 8x24 L-band Router is 4U and optimised for asymmetric dual antenna cruise ship matrices. Likewise the 8x16 (2U) and 4x8 (2U) and 1U SNG truck matrices are designed for specific applications.
While some of the L-band matrix products in this range have hot-swap power supplies, please see our Hot Swap Matrix range for matrices with hot swap of RF modules, CPU's and PSU's.
Non-blocking: this means any input can be routed to any output.
In general our solid state (L-band) matrices are non-blocking.
Full Fan-out Matrix (or fully distributive or splitting matrix): any input can be routed to any output. One input can be routed to many outputs. Each output can only have one input. Tends to be more RX.
8 x 16 L-band Matrix With LNB Powering, local and remote control (via RS232/422/485 Serial and RJ45 Ethernet Port)
The ETL L-band distributive matrix is a high performance switch matrix (or router) with up to 8 inputs and 16 outputs, integrated hot swap power supplies in a 2U
high shelf. The matrix design has been optimised for earth stations which are non-symmetric in terms of number of inputs and outputs.
Local control is via the front panel display, which allows IP settings changes and shows CPU status. Remote control of the unit is done via an Ethernet port (SNMP and TCP/IP), and via an RS232 / 422 / 485 serial port on the rear panel. The matrix has the additional advantage of providing LNB powering to each of the RF inputs (which can be switched on / off remotely). LNB current is continuously monitored and reported externally. In the event of total power failure, all matrix settings are retained.
The unit can be supplied in a partially populated state but the units must be returned to base for later expansion or maintenance. The unit is supplied with 50 ohm BNC connectors, but a range of connector types and impedances are available.
