Unicable II

Unicable II Cascadable switch with Terrestrial input and 4x Sky dSCR/SatCR/Legacy+Terrestrial outputs


Item: 5412


The Multiswitch unit connects to a Quattro LNB and offers a Terrestrial input port to connect a terrestrial antenna for reception of UHF/DAB/radio broadcasts. The terrestrial signal can be amplified through a dedicated ON/OFF switch and is combined over each of the 4 output ports.


The Multiswitch unit can be powered through a DC input port, any of the trunk output lines or from the STB output ports (typically using a Sky power inserter device). In typical cascaded MDU installations, the DC voltage supplied over the DC in or trunk output lines is passed through to the trunk input lines in order to power the LNB and the ‘STB DC pass to LNB trunk’ switch must be set to OFF.


To help the installer ensure at the time of installation that the unit’s power supply is sufficient to support a full load in the future i.e. 4x SkyQ STBs, the Multiswitch features a special power diagnosis test mode that is triggered automatically upon unit startup. During this 15 second test, the Multiswitch will operate in full load and will light the power-diagnosis led in green if the unit is supplied with sufficient power or in amber if not.

A status led, located next to each output port, indicates the operating mode of the port (Legacy=solid green, Sky dSCR=blinking green, Power diagnosis=blinking red/green).
