The new UNI board for compact matrices of the Draco tera flex series completes the portfolio of the series. All board variants are now available in a single chassis: Cat X, fiber, 3G, IP Gateway and UNI board.
The 1U-sized UNI board offers eight freely assignable universal ports for SDI and USB 3.0 (via ICRON Raven 3-2-1 fiber optic extender), depending on the SFP module (small form-factor pluggable) for KVM transmission via fiber or coax cable. All UNI ports can be used as inputs and outputs as usual. The UNI board also allows SDI media conversion from coax input signals to fiber output and vice versa. In mission-critical applications or fallback scenarios, the UNI board takes over the function of an electronic patch panel: Gigabit Ethernet can be switched in a fraction of a second.
With the UNI board and suitable SFPs integrated, a Draco tera flex KVM matrix can switch SDI, USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet. This flexibility was previously reserved for its bigger brother model, the Draco tera enterprise. The UNI board allows smaller to medium-sized installations equipped with the more compact Draco tera flex KVM matrices to design the KVM system with even more flexibility and greater customization.
