DEV Systemtechnik Introduces 16x16 L-Band Distributing Matrix With 20 Outputs

DEV Systemtechnik, a German provider of RF signal transmission solutions, has introduced the L-Band Distribution Matrix, a 162 matrix can supports up to 16 input and 20 output channels and fits in a compact 2RU chassis.

DEV Systemtechnik said the matrix provides a high degree of flexibility. The number of input and output channels can be changed; connectors and impedances can be configured after purchase.

In addition to electrical and optical inputs, the DEV 1985 matrix supports variable gain and slope and comes with a local user interface. Other features known from DEV matrices such as an integrated spectrum analyzer and LNB powering on all channels can also be optionally included in the 16x16 matrix.

The new 162 is designed for operation via DEV's Web Interface for multiple users. The Secure Lock Operation mode allows users to lock a switched path so that other users cannot redirect those paths. Intelligent redundancy options with RF Sensing allow the matrix to automatically restore service via a backup path in the rare event of a primary path failure.
