DC-18GHz, 8 x 8 Blocking Matrix Switch: 50MS-404

Source: JFW Industries, Inc.

Model 50MS-404 is an 8X8 blocking matrix switch.  All unused ports are absorptive (i.e. self-terminating into 50 Ohm).  It is available with 50 Ohm N or SMA female connectors. 

The matrix is constructed using switches on both halves of the matrix.  Each input port can be set to only one output port at a time.  An 8X8 blocking matrix can only have a maximum of 8 active paths.  We label the ports as IN and OUT as a naming convention only.  All ports operate bi-directionally.

The matrix switch can be remotely controlled via an Ethernet connection or a serial connection (i.e. RS-232).  The network settings can be changed manually with the keypad or remotely using the NET remote command.  The network interface can be set to either DHCP mode or Fixed Address mode.  All new test systems are shipped from the factory in DHCP mode.  A RS-232 connection to the test system is made using a null modem type serial cable.  Baud rates up to 155200 baud are available.  The baud rate can be changed manually with the keypad or remotely with the SERIAL remote command.
