Installation Example.

Take a scenario where a customer has both Foxtel IQ and VAST satellite receivers and has a twin output LNBF on a dish..
In this situation, you would run two cables from the LNBF to the Multiswitch. Then two cables from the Multiswitch to the Foxtel IQ and a single cable from the Multiswitch to the VAST receiver.

What is a multiswitch:

A satellite multiswitch is a device used in satellite television distribution systems to allow multiple satellite signals to be distributed to multiple receivers or televisions. Here’s a quick description of how it works:

  1. Input Signals: The multiswitch receives both vertical and horizontal polarised signals from the same satellite broadcast.
  2. Signal Routing: The multiswitch has multiple outputs, each connected to a different receiver or television. It determines which satellite signal is sent to each output based on the LNBF Voltage supplied by the satellite receiver. A receiver on a horizonal channel will output 18V while those on vertical channels will output 13V.
  3. Amplification and Signal Compensation: The multiswitch may also include amplification and signal compensation circuits to ensure that the signals remain strong and clear as they are distributed to each output.
  4. Cascading Capability: In larger installations with more satellite dishes or more outputs, multiswitches can be cascaded or daisy-chained together to expand the system’s capacity. This allows for the distribution of signals from multiple satellites to an even greater number of receivers or televisions.

Overall, a satellite multiswitch simplifies the distribution of multiple satellite signals to multiple destinations, providing flexibility and convenience in satellite television installations.
