Vulcan From ETL Systems Bringing RF Signal Distribution Into A Defensive Position

[SatNews]  ETL Systems will provide RF equipment to a large U.S. Government Defence contractor.

This was a highly competitive bid and ETL was selected after providing a successful equipment demonstration at the agency’s facility which showed the unique form factor and performance attributes of its Vulcan matrix system. The Vulcan is a compact 16U high 128 inputs x 128 inputs distributive matrix with dual redundant power supplies and CPU’s, and hot-swappable RF components. It also features remote control and monitoring facilities that give the user the ability to set alarms if any levels drop below pre-determined thresholds.

Susan Saadat, Vice President of ETL’s North American Sales and Operations, said, “This further proves that our equipment is trustworthy and reliable as well as unique enough to stand out from the competition.”
As well as the Vulcan matrix, which is installed at a location outside the U.S., ETL has been working closely with the customer to design a customized rack that will contain the matrix and auxiliary equipment, and the customer’s preferred cabling system. ETL is also providing an onsite Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) at ETL’s UK facility in Hereford, along with lengthy training for the US government Agency. This will give the agency hands-on experience with the product and teach them troubleshooting strategies for seamless integration in to their system.
Ms. Saadat added, “Our Factory Acceptance Tests ensure the customer understands the equipment’s full functions and operations while our in-depth training procedures make sure they can use the equipment to its full capabilities.”
