DEV Systemtechnik GmbH to launch“sigma” 128 x 128 RF Matrix

DEV Systemtechnik GmbH expands its successful and field proven L-Band Matrix product portfolio with a brand-new RF Matrix System supporting up to 128 x 128 I/Os and configurations beyond 128 I/Os with embedded clustering options.

DEV Systemtechnik has developed a brand-new distributing matrix system leveraging the field proven technology and HMI from its successful Archimedes Matrix system and introducing state of the art technology and features responding on customers’ needs for higher density, flexibility, and simplicity with an optimized cost / performance ratio.

sigma allows satellite network operators and broadcaster to choose any input and output configuration with a granularity of 8 physical ports up to 128 inputs and 128 outputs. Ports are selectable with 75 Ohms or 50 Ohms with F or SMA connectors. In addition, sigma supports also direct optical input ports. With up to three hot swappable power supplies the system can support fail proof redundant LNB powering on all 128 input channels.

All I/Os and the whole switching fabric are designed to support extended L-Band Signaling from 850 MHz to 2450 Mhz.

All active modules can be swapped on the fly from the front which drastically simplifies maintenance and upgrades in the field.

Upgrades beyond 128 ports are also supported and kept as simple as possible: as a world’s first sigma supports embedded clustering features. As a result, customers do not need external splitter arrays when expanding the network with additional sigma systems beyond 128 ports achieving reduced cost for external hardware, less rack space and shorter installation time.
