Unicable II

Unicable II Cascadable switch with Terrestrial input and 4x dCSS/SCR/Legacy+Terrestrial outputs


Item: 5413


The IDLU-UST110-CUO4O-32P is a small size casacdable Unicable II multiswitch with 4 auto-detect output ports, each supporting Unicable II or Legacy functionality. The Multiswitch unit can be connected to a single satellite Quattro LNB (default configuration) or two Wideband LNBs to support reception of 2 satellites. A Terrestrial input allows to connect a terrestrial antenna for reception of UHF/VHF/DAB/radio broadcasts. The terrestrial signal can be amplified (ON/OFF switch) and is combined over each of the 4 output ports. By default, each output port functions in Legacy mode and can be controlled through 13/18V+0/22kHz signals or DiSEqC1.0/2.0 commands. The port switches to Unicable II mode automatically upon receiving a EN50494/EN50607 command and provides 16x dynamic User Bands (refer to the product technical specifications for the default settings of the 16 user bands).


The Multiswitch unit can be powered through a DC input port, any of the trunk output lines or from the STB output ports (typically through a 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, 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 a 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 of the output ports, indicates the operating mode of the port (Legacy=solid green, Unicable II=blinking green, Power diagnosis=blinking red/green).
