DEV Systemtechnik is showing its spectrum of cable head end solutions for RF signal transmission between satellite antennas and receivers at the ANGA Cable Show 2012 in Cologne Germany. Among the enhanced features DEV is unveiling are distribution matrix features for its DEV 2190 managed L-band distribution system and DEV 7114 Intelligent Optribtion distribution system for RF-over-fibre.
DEV offers customised solutions for virtually all types of professional RF applications in CATV head ends and satellite ground stations. Owing to the breadth of its product portfolio, as per the company spokesman, and unlike competing suppliers, DEV reportedly has the ability to meet nearly all RF signal handling requirements using exclusively its own products. DEV’s portfolio covers coaxial cable as well as fibre optic infrastructures, all frequency bands, and all common management systems.
Continuous product improvement and innovation are, according to the company spokesman, core to DEV’s corporate philosophy, and DEV has enhanced two of its managed distribution systems: the DEV 7114 Intelligent Optribution Chassis, and the DEV 2190 “flagship” L-Band-over-coax distribution system. The full range of distribution matrix functions can reportedly now be integrated in both systems and used together with already existing software features such as variable gain and tilt and RF sensing.
