Quintech Electronics QRM 16 x 16 RF Matrix Router

IF and L-band RF Routing Matrix Switch: QRM 2500

The QRM 2500 IF and L-band routing matrix features a 16×16 RF matrix routing in a compact 1 RU enclosure. The QRM also features Quintech’s latestQ-ROUTE and Q-SENSE technology, which provides maximum reliability with internal and external signal path redundancy and auto re-route capabilities. The QRM’s operating frequency range covers 50 MHz to 2150 MHz. It also offers manual and automatic AGC modes with a range of -15dB to +16 dB in 0.5 dB steps with optional LNB Power and individual port control to support all modulation formats. The front panel LED’s allow monitoring of power supply and alarm status information.
