The FlexLink S7B-1616 is a professional L-Band Switch Matrix coming in a compact 1RU/19" rack-mount chassis now supporting Extended L-Band frequency range (850...2450MHz), ready for Ka-Band and HTS applications. The standard unit comes with a 8:8 I/O configuration while expansion is easily possible to a maxiumum of 16:16 (increments of 4) simply by license-key activation. The unit supports symmetrical or asymmetrical configurations such as 8:12, 12:8, 8:16, 16:8 to a maximum of 16:16 allowing to switch/route up to 16 independent L-Band signals to up to 16 outputs. It features variable gain control, slope equalization, RF power monitoring, switchable LNB-supply, 10MHz external ref. signal input and 1:1 redundant dual power supply. It is available with 50Ohm or 75Ohm inputs/outputs while upon request it can also being equipped with optical inputs. A LC-Display with keypads allows easy local configuration. Remote configuration can be done via its Ethernet-interface (http./WebGUI, SNMPv2c).
