Features & Benefits

Q-ROUTE Provides Internal Signal Path Redundancy by Automatically Re-routing Around a Failed Signal Path

Q-SENSE Provides External Signal Path Redundancy by Automatic Switching of Back-up Input Signals

• Touch Screen Inteface & Embedded Web Browser Software

• Compact, modular design offers a 64x64 L Band RF router in 6RU. The RF Matrix router is easily expandable to 1024x1024

• Redundant hot-swap control cards plus independent control systems offer the highest level of redundancy in control

• L Band RF signal level monitoring at the inputs and outputs provides self test capability and facilitates troubleshooting network interfaces

• Programmable AGC and attenuation on all inputs allows the user to adjust the input signal level for optimum L Band performance

• All active components can be very easily hot swapped (in less than 30 seconds) from the front without replacing any cables or using any tools

 

QE3 Hot Swap L Band Matrix Router Switch

The QE3 L-band and IF Routing Switch features a compact 64 x 64 RF matrix in 6 RU with [Q-Sense] . The QE3 is a full fan-out, non-blocking RF L-band Matrix Switch where any input can be routed to any or all outputs. Its operating frequency range covers both IF 50-200 MHz and L-band 950-2150 MHz. The QE3 is highly scalable and can easily be expanded to a 1024 x 1024. Hot-swappable component cards enable fast and easy replacement without any special tools or disconnecting any cables. The hot swappable control cards, which operate independently and simultaneously, offer the highest level of redundancy in control. The dual hot swappable power supply provides redundancy in powering. The RF level at the inputs and outputs is monitored to facilitate trouble shooting network interfaces. The programmable automatic gain control (AGC) and attenuation on all inputs allows the user to adjust input signal level for optimum performance. In today's complex telecommunication networks, the QE3 L-band Router offers the best in reliability and flexibility to manage multiple RF signals.
