ETL Systems is a Switch Hitter at CommunicAsia with Their New Equipment

Seems one show ends and then companies are ramping up for the next one in another part of the globe. And so it is with ETL Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of RF signal distribution equipment for satellite communications, that will be demonstrating its Griffin Redundancy Switch and 64 x 64 Hurricane Matrix on its stand 1V3-03 at CommunicAsia in June.

The Griffin series provides signal redundancy for satellite modulators, downconverters, or modems. The flexible design of the chassis can house up to two 2x1 redundancy switches, with a choice of three switch modules;

  • L-band
  • DC-2500MHz
  • Asynchronous Serial Interface (ASI)  


It can be populated with a single module of any type, or, two modules of the same type. It can be used in sync mode; enabling switching to a standby path when an error occurs. Alternatively, both modules could be operated as standalone 2x1 (1x2) redundancy switches.

ETL systems will also be demonstrating its compact Hurricane Matrix, which provides L-band routing for up to 64 input and output feeds. It can handle multiple services, ensuring each feed is distributed to the correct place, while offering configurable inputs and outputs so that each satellite feed can be adapted with different features including variable gain, optical fiber inputs and LNB powering.
