The SLM32 (850-2450MHz) is a modular L-Band switching system that can be factory configured for Fan-OUT (SLM32) or Fan-IN (SLM32i) signal routing, and up to 32x32 in a single 6RU unit. The SLM32X is the same unit but includes our larger Option X touchscreen display.
Needs something even larger? See our System SLX128 L-Band with 128x128 configuration.
Field configurable from a small 4x4 to as large as a 32x32, it is designed to replace and automate a set of multi-coupler and manual patch cord bays or switches. The input and output axis can be populated in single channel increments independently as needed.
The unit is available in a distributive Fan-OUT version (SLM32) or a combining Fan-IN version (SLM32i). These units are also now available in C-Band, X-band, and Wideband configurations. Our technical staff can help configure the exact system for your specific application.
UPDATE: A new set of plug-in blades adds the capability to have the unit perform for wideband 20-3000MHz requirements, and also up to (and beyond) 4GHz for 5G applications.
4GHz, L-Band 32x32 Modular Switching System
Fan-OUT or Fan-IN: 950-2150MHz (850-2450 ext)
Eliminating multi-couplers, manual patch bays and patch cords, the System SLM32 is a solid-state modular switch array specifically designed for routing L-Band signals. Fully populated, the unit provides 32 input ports and 32 output ports. The unit is configurable from as small as 4x4 to 32x32 in independent increments of one input channel, or one output channel. This design allows isolated failure capability. Should an I/O blade experience a failure, it will only affect that individual channel and not a bank of channels.
The 6RU rack mount unit can be populated with up to thirty-two input blades and thirty-two output blades. For the SLM32 version, the input blades install at the hinged rear of the unit while the output blades install at the front (behind the hinged front panel). All blades are secured within the unit for rugged and trouble free operation.
The front panel includes a touchscreen display with menu driven operation. The screen may be pass-code locked to prevent unintentional operation. The unit can be configured with one or two (full redundant) hot-swappable plug-in control CPUs.
Each CPU includes an LXI 10/100 Ethernet port (with web browser), and a microSD memory slot for high security areas. Self-monitoring hot-swap plug-in power supplies are standard with an independent and redundant design. The unit has independent dual AC power inputs designed for any international AC power source. A third supply can be added for redundant LNB powering if required. Compatible with RouteWarePRO control software.
The SLM32 units are delivered complete, 100% tested, and ready for installation & integration. The following items are included:
Two 6'-foot power cords
Resource disc (#RDSLM32)
Hardware accessory kit
Warranty registration card
Free lifetime technical support
Free lifetime firmware updates
Two power cords are provided as the unit comes standard with redundant (and independent) power supplies. Care should be given to the Resource Disc as this has all documentation and instructions. Electronic copies of the Operations Manual and Programmers Guide are included, as well as RouteWarePRO control and monitoring software with a 30-Day free trial.
