Product Information

Product
Information

Draco tera flex (Series 480)

The Draco tera flex matrix switching series with its compact size of 1, 2 or 4RU and up to 160 Flex-Ports is designed to support both small to midsize applications as well as large ones.
With its capability to facilitate 1G and 3G technology within a single frame as well as Cat X and fiber interfaces, it supports modern applications with a mix of 2K and 4K in very economic way. Custom design chassis even allow for future field upgradability scaling a system from 40-Port to 80-Port or even 160-Port completely non-blocking.

Grid connectivity
With its 10G Grid option Draco tera flex can act as a nice satellite to a core enterprise system using the least amount of infrastructure building a deployed homogeneous large matrix grid.

Ease of setup
By simply connecting the extender to the chassis, the internal control software will recognize and auto-configure the port as a CPU or console device. This Flex-Port technology provides a huge time saving for system installers who normally have to pre-configure ports to specific I/O requirements. The system supports also instant switching technology. With incredible speed, switching between sources is glitch-free and instantaneous thus reducing eye strain and annoying video tearing found with other systems. Where centralized switching of KVM is necessary, the Draco tera flex is the perfect KVM solution. It is especially suited for factory floor automation control systems, production studios, OB Vans, and command and control environments.

Compatibility
Draco tera flex is compatible with all Draco vario extenders. All that needs to be taken care of is correct link speed and interface of the used endpoints and their Codec version. Draco tera flex is already prepared for future backward compatibility of Draco vario ultra CON units to Draco vario CPUs.
