SLX128 SLX128i modular matrix 128x128 L-Band matrix system SLX128 SLX128i modular matrix 128x128 L-Band matrix system C3 Controller CPU G2T600


The SLX128 (950-2150MHz) is a modular L-Band switching system that can be factory configured for Fan-Out (SLX128) or Fan-In (SLX128i) signal routing, and up to 128x128 in a single 14RU unit.

Field configurable from a small 8x8 to as large as a 128x128, it 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 independently as needed.

The unit is available in a distributive Fan-OUT version (SLX128) or a combining Fan-IN version (SLX128i). Our technical staff can help configure the exact system for your specific application. Contact us.

    Detailed Description

    Eliminating a rats-nest of multi-couplers, manual patch bays and patch cords, the System SLX128 is a solid-state modular switch array specifically designed for routing L-Band signals. Fully populated, the unit provides 128 input ports and 128 output ports. Other configurations are possible. Contact the factory.

    The 14U rack mount unit can be populated with tr-stage cards for the full configuration, or reduced configurations. All cards are secured within the unit for rugged and trouble free operation.

    The front panel includes our 10.1" Option X touchscreen display with menu driven operation as a standard item. 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), a USB 2.0 port, and a muli-serial port (RS-232C, RS-422A & RS-485). 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. This unit includes our RouteWarePRO control software.
