Harrier L-band Matrix System (Downlink) 128 x 256


  • Description

    The multi-module 128 x 256 Harrier Matrix System is a distributive (full fan out) Matrix System based on our Harrier HAR-40 series matrix unit.

    The L-band expandable matrix system has been designed to provide high resilience for mission critical applications, with redundant, hot-swap active components. Harriers configurable matrix design offers a range of input and output module options (IO modules) including fibre inputs, variable gain, LNB power modules and our standard passive input or output module, .

    The system requires 32 RU rack space in 2 x 19" racks depending on rack size / cable density requirements and ancillary equipment (splitter type, termination panels etc).

    The L-band Matrix is scalable to a maximum system size of 1024 inputs x 1024  outputs.

    A variety of impedances and connector types are available.

    Please contact one of our RF System Architects to find the optimum solution for your requirement.

  • Benefits

    HAR-40 Key Benefits:

    • CONFIGURABLE individual input and output modules with features to suit specific RF needs for each satellite feed. Features include passive or active modules, variable gain, variable slope, LNB powering and optical fibre inputs. IO (Input and Output) modules can be mixed and configured to exact earth station requirements within the same matrix.
    • COMPACT 10U high chassis providing 128 inputs x 128 outputs with integrated LNB powering. Expandable in blocks of 8.
    • MINIMAL DOWNTIME in the unlikely event of a failure all active components can be hot-swapped without the need to re-boot the matrix.
    • POWER SAVINGS as only active signal routes are powered. This provides a greatly reduced power consumption compared to traditional matrices.
    • MINIMAL TRAINING with capacitive touchscreen controls, more intuitive HMI and an improved web browser interface.
