The 4101 Patch Panel is a switch matrix designed to automate an RF patch panel. It is an economical solution compared to a distribution switch matrix. Housed in a 3RU profile the system connects any one Input to any one Output, having a total of 4 active signals in any given moment.
The wideband operation covers DC to 6000 MHz frequency range using a compact architecture, with potential uses including ATE, 5G, downlink, and uplink applications.
This series showcases the latest CrossPoint controller technology, which allows controlling the switch matrix via a user-friendly Web Interface. The new controller also adds the port nickname labeling that aids differentiation when switching between several similar antennas or receivers.
L, S, C Band RF Switch Matrix – 500 MHz to 6000 MHz
The 7000 series model is a microwave non-blocking full fan-out product. Housed in a 3RU profile the system connects any input to any one or multiple outputs. The wideband operation covers 500 MHz to 6000 MHz frequency range using a compact architecture. This switch matrix is ideal for upgrading range telemetry applications that need to use L band, S band, and C band. Newer site equipment can be used while still supporting older equipment. Advantageous in noise figure critical applications when solid state switching is also required. Remote control of the system includes RS-232/422, Ethernet 10/100.
