The XRF6 is a modular RF signal matrix for routing and monitoring L-band, IF and other signals within a satellite communications facility. Built on a modular architecture, all active components are hot-swappable and front-loading, ensuring ease of maintenance and matrix expansion. Advanced features such as automatic gain control, salvo operations, monitoring, and alarm reporting of critical signal parameters such as input signal presence and signal level provide flexible RF signal management. Optional 18V DC LNB power is also available with active overload and short circuit protection.

The XRF6 is offered with the X-NCP2 and CP-22xxxE series remote control panel options for crosspoint control and system configuration. Additionally, this flexible routing matrix can be controlled, configured, and monitored via serial control and/or SNMP control over Ethernet, using Evertz VistaLINK® or other monitoring and control software.

The XRF6L houses up to a 64x64 routing matrix within a 6RU chassis. Matrix sizes are scalable in increments of 16x inputs and outputs. External expansion to 512x512 is available with the addition of multiple frames and Evertz SRF series passive splitters/combiners. Input cards and output cards can be added independently for non-square matrix sizes. High reliability is ensured by low component count per signal path, optional dual power supplies, and redundant system controllers.
