This Multiswitch unit connects to a Quattro or Wideband LNBs and offers a terrestrial input port to connect a terrestrial antenna and enable the distribution of satellite TV as well as DTT/DAB broadcasts at MDU/IRS installations.
A manual switch selects whether the satellite inputs connect to a Quattro LNB or up to two Wideband LNBs for receiving up to two full satellite broadcasts. The loop-through trunk ports can be connected to cascade additional Multiswitch units.
The DC-input port of the Multiswitch unit powers the trunk lines which power the connected LNB and the built-in Terrestrial amplifier of the unit and of any other cascaded units. The Trunk power LED will turn green when the Trunk lines are powered.
The output ports are powered by the connected STBs enabling super low power consumption from the trunk lines and powering as many cascaded switches as possible using a single power supply unit. If a connected STB is not able to power its respective port, a power inserter can be utilized.
Each of the four STB output ports is compatible with either Sky Q, Sky+ HD or Sky+ STB models, delivers 16 User Bands and features a Port status LED indicating its operational mode:
- Solid green = Legacy mode (e.g. Sky+ STB).
- Blinking green = dSCR or SatCR mode (e.g. Sky Q or Sky+ HD STBs).
- Off = no voltage detected on the port (only terrestrial signal available on the port)
All the four STB output ports combine a unity-gain equalized Terrestrial input signal
