RF-Design successfully has launched their new FlexLink S7 L-Band Switch Matrix series. This new stand-alone and small sized matrix family features the unit variants FlexLink S7-8816 supporting 8:8, field expandable to 8:16 inputs/outputs via license-key activation and the FlexLink S7-1616 available with 16:16 inputs/outputs.
RF-Design is known as a major supplier of high quality and reliable RF distribution solutions and has more than 260 switch matrices of their FlexLink series in operation with teleports, satellite earth-stations, broadcasters and cable/iptv headend facilities around the globe. They are very optimistic that they will continue this success with the launch of their new FlexLink S7 series foreseeing a growing demand for smaller sized switch matrices especially from cable/iptv headend operations, broadcasters and DSNG´s while of course their FlexLink S7 units are also a perfect fit for teleports and satellite earth-stations.
The FlexLink S7 units come in a space saving 1RU/19” rack-mount design, are available with 50/75Ohm connectors as well as can being equipped with optical inputs e.g. for integration into existing RF-over-Fiber infrastructures or for combining them with RF-Design´s FiberLink RF-over-Fiber series. The FlexLink S7 units support some very advantageous features such as variable gain-adjustment, slope-equalization, RF power monitoring, switchable LNB-supply, 10MHz reference feet and 1:1 redundant hot-swappable dual power-supplies.
The FlexLink S7 units can be configured locally via their front-side LC-Display/keypads and remotely via their Ethernetinterface (http./WebGUI, SNMP).
Last but not least the units of RF-Design´s FlexLink S7 series are distinguished by superior quality, stability as well as superiour RF performance especially at isolation, linearity and frequency response. The combination of its unique features, flexibility and excellent RF characteristics allow optimized signal transmission at the highest quality level and makes these units a perfect fit for a variety of applications in broadcast, cable and satellite RF distribution architectures.
RF-Design´s Matrix series “FlexLink” incorporates their new stand-alone FlexLink S7 (8:8/8:16 / 16:16), the stand-alone FlexLink S2A (8:24) as well as their scalable/modular type system FlexLink-K7-Pro (available in sizes of 8:8 to up to 256:256). With their overall Matrix series “FlexLink” RF-Design is able to address the various requirements of customers that require reliable, flexible and high quality L-Band switching/routing solutions for their RF distribution architectures.
