MPX Redundancy Switch:

Qbit‘s Q806 MPX Redundancy Switch brings easy and flexible redundancy control to your MPX or Digital AES Audio signals.

The Q806 MPX Redundancy Switch has two signal paths for each analog as well as digital signals. Each path has two inputs and one output. The decision of which signal is routed to the output can either be set manually by the user or automatically by the system.
In automatic mode, this decision is based on monitoring / measuring all available input signals and by configuring various switching criteria. 

he system is built using latching relays, guaranteeing uninterrupted transmission of the configured input signal during power failure.
For signal monitoring / measurement, all input signals (analog, AES3) are converted into digital and processed by a digital signal processor (DSP).

Redundant power supplies, additional monitoring outputs at the rear and front (MPX, headphone) ensure safe operation.
The optional front panel display with jogwheels adds further possibilities for convenient and simple handling of the Q806.

Management and Control:

The Q806 MPX Redundancy Switch can be managed conveniently via the integrated web interface with all common web browsers.
The device can be monitored and managed via SNMP.
The optional display and jog wheel allow quick and easy switching onsite. Configurable alarms automatically inform your systems about events and errors.
