MS2010A Coaxial RF Switch Matrix (18GHz) MS2010A Coaxial RF Switch Matrix Front Panel (18GHz) MS2010A Coaxial RF Switch Matrix Rear Panel (18GHz) MS2010A Coaxial Relay Element XMA2010A-005


System MS2010A is a high performance DC-18GHz coaxial blocking matrix designed for high reliability, very low MTTR, and is available in configurations from 4x4 to 12x12 in an elegant & compact 2RU unit.

Intended for automating manual patch cords, or replace bulky and dated competitive products, this unit is designed for switching any coaxial signal within the DC-18GHz frequency. Our new proprietary high reliability relay element coupled with our elegant and sophisticated rack-mount packaging gives you the performance and maintainability you demand.

MS2010A units provide excellent signal performance with low crosstalk isolation, good phase matching, high isolation and low signal loss specifications. These rugged units are both compact and cost-effective. They provide the systems engineer with one of the best integrated solutions for reliably routing a wide range of coaxial signals. Each input can be connected to only one output at a time (no fanout, only 1:1 connections).

NOTE: Although it is available in standard configurations, the internal design construction makes it simple to build for custom or special requirements. Our technical staff can help configure the exact system to meet your specific application. Contact the factory.

    Detailed Description

    Eliminating manual patch bays and patch cords, the System MS2010A is a compact high-performance modular switch matrix specifically designed for routing any coaxial signal within the DC-18GHz bandpass. Configurations are available from 4x4 to 12x12, and custom configurations are a simple to accomplish.

    Enjoy the known benefits of mechanical relay elements without worry of relay-life, or hassle of maintenance. Our new proprietary high reliability relay element coupled with our elegant and sophisticated rack-mount design gives you the performance and maintainability you demand. Built-in coil current monitoring and individual relay actuation logs provide health and usage data for preventative maintenance planning. A relay element can be replaced while the unit is in use, and in about 1-2 minutes with just a screwdriver delivering low MTTR (Mean Time To Repair).

    The 2RU rack mount unit provides user connectivity with SMA signal connectors at the rear of the unit, with N-Type connectors being optional. The front panel includes a color touchscreen display with user friendly menu driven operation to configure or control the unit locally. The display may be pass-code locked to prevent unintentional operation.

    The unit is configured with a plug-in CPU (behind the hinged front panel) that includes an LXI 10/100 Ethernet port (with web browser), a USB 2.0 port, and a muli-serial port (RS-232C, RS-422A & RS-485). Control connections are at the rear panel. Self-monitoring hot-swap plug-in power supplies (behind the hinged front panel) are standard with an independent and redundant design. The unit has a single AC power input designed for any international AC power source.
