Whyte Series D WSCR516

Advanced Cascadable 16 way dSCR Multiswitches enable seamless integration with conventional IRS Systems due to extremely low power consumption, low loss passive trunks and high gain Terrestrial, make the new Series D range from Whyte the most versatile and easy to install dSCR Multiswitch range available. Each subscriber output provides SkyQ, Legacy, TV and Radio. Satellite subscriber signal levels in both Legacy and dSCR mode are automatically set to 85dBμV. Terrestrial signal levels are controlled via a manual Gain Control knob and a selectable Protean Tap which permits a wide range of TERR input signal levels from 50 to 108dBμV. The reception of 2 satellites can easily be achieved by utilising 2 Wideband LNB’s and switching the unit to Wideband LNB mode. The unit can be powered directly via the DC input port or be remotely powered via the trunk lines.
