The S2561E switching system is a single-ended full featured non-blocking full fan-out matrix for routing both digital and analog signals with up to 256x256 I/O's in one unit, or up to 1024x1024 in multiple units.
Conceived to replace manual patch cord bays and multi-couplers, this unit is designed for switching both digital and analog signals. Signal such as IRIG-B, PCM, TTL, clock & data, IF-video, or other similar signal that might be found on a test range. Typically, the unit is married with "adapter panels" where user signals are connected. Adapter panels provide a whole extra level of flexibility for system expansion, keeping rack space usage to a minimum, and allows panels to be located separately from the switch (up to 60 feet away).
By design, the S2561E can be easily configured to meet many needs, even as your needs change and evolve. The unit can be configured as small as a 32x32 matrix, to as large as a 256x256 matrix within the same box by simply sliding in modules. Either the input or output axis of the matrix can be configured independently in increments of 32 ports. Our technical staff can help configure the exact system for your specific application.

Rather than using patch cords, distribution amplifiers and multi-couplers, the following installations may benefit from use of this product:
Analog & Digital 256x256 Modular Switching System
IRIG-B, TTL, PCM, Video DC-125MHz (Mbps)
Eliminating manual patch bays and cords, the System S2561E is a high-density switch array specifically designed for routing both digital and analog signals such as IRIG-B, PCM, TTL, clock & data, 70MHz IF-video, or other similar signals between DC-125MHz.. Fully populated, this unit contains 256 input and 256 outputs where a given input can be connected to one, many or all 256 outputs (full fan-out non-blocking).
The 5RU rack mount unit accepts up to eight input cards and eight output cards at the rear with each I/O card having two (2) 68-position Dsub connectors. There are 16-channels per Dsub connector. These cards install at the rear of the unit with the connectors rear facing. All cards are secured to the unit with stainless hardware for rugged and trouble free operation. For less than fully populated configurations, filler plates complete the user configuration to keep the fan assisted cooling system working at top efficiency. To complete the Tri-Stage configuration, eight mid-stage cards are installed behind the hinged front panel.
The front panel includes a VF display and keypad with menu driven operation. The keypad may be pass-code locked to prevent unintentional operation. The unit can be configured with one or two (full redundant) hot-swappable plug-in control CPUs. Each CPU includes an LXI 10/100 Ethernet port (with web browser), a USB 2.0 port, and a muli-serial port (RS-232C, RS-422A & RS-485). Self-monitoring hot-swap plug-in power supplies are standard with an independent and redundant design. The unit has independent dual AC power inputs designed for any international AC power source.
The table below shows how many channels are available based on the number of input or output cards installed. You can independently populate input and output sections.
The S2561E units are delivered complete, 100% tested, and ready for installation & integration. The following items are included:
Two 6'-foot power cords
Resource disc (#RDS2561E)
Hardware accessory kit
Warranty registration card
Lifetime technical support
Free firmware updates
Two power cords are provided as the unit comes standard with redundant (and independent) power supplies. Care should be given to the Resource Disc as this has all documentation and instructions. Electronic copies of the Operations Manual and Programmers Guide are included, as well as RouteWarePRO control and monitoring software with a 30-Day free trial.
