32 Port L-Band Matrix Switch

The XTREME 32 next generation L-band matrix switch features 32 ports in a compact 1 RU chassis. The XTREME 32 is a full fan-out (distributive), non-blocking switch where an input can be routed to any or all outputs. The XTREME 32 features an industry exclusive flexible matrix architecture that supports both symmetric and asymmetric configurations of 32 combined inputs and outputs in a single chassis. Asymmetric configurations such as 4x28, 8x24, and more can be implemented as well as the standard 16x16 configuration. Optional 13/18 V, 22KHz tone LNB power available on all input ports. It is designed for maximum reliability with redundant and hot-swappable power supplies.
