Vortex L-band Matrix System (Downlink) 64 x 192


  • Description

    The L-band expandable matrix system has been designed to provide high resilience for mission critical applications, with redundant, hot-swap active components.

    The multi-module 64 x 192 Vortex Matrix System is a distributive (full fan out) Matrix System based on our Vortex VTX-100 series matrix unit. The system requires 23 RU rack space in 1 x 19" rack depending on rack size / cable density requirements and ancillary equipment (splitter type, termination panels, LNB powering 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

    VTX-100 Key Benefits:

    •  64 x 64 routing in a high density 5U shelf.
    •  Simple 'plug & go' installation. 
    •  Further expansion of RF matrix to 1024 x 1024.
    •  Expandable in blocks of 16
    •  Hot swap of all active components
    •  Dual redundant CPU’s & PSU’s
    •  Self diagnostics
    •  Touchscreen control & display
    •  Remote control by PC software or M&C systems
    •  Secure communications with SNMPv3 & HTTPS
  • Applications

    Typical Applications:

    - RF content acquisition for TVRP & IPTV headends.

    - Broadcast occasional use. 

    - Remote controlled unmanned satcom sites. 

    - Large Teleports

  • Matrix Types

    Non-blocking: this means any input can be routed to any output.

    Full Fan-out Matrix (or fully distributive or splitting matrix): any input can be routed to any output. One input can be routed to many outputs. Each output can only have one input. Tends to be more RX.

    In general, our solid state (L-band) matrices are non-blocking.

  • Matrix Sizes

    The 64 x 192 Vortex Matrix System is comprised of three Vortex 64 x 64 modules and system splitters.
    It can be expanded using additional (Vortex) modules with system splitters and / or combiners up to a maximum 1024 x 1024.

    We also have modules which can provide the same system size - please see;
