Central Receive x6 6-Way MaxRC COFDM Receiver
The IMT CRX6 Receiver is a ruggedized COFDM DVB-T compliant six-way diversity central receiver. It offers exceptional RF performance and IP-66 environmental durability for external use. The CRX6 is the new generation of receive systems. Unlike equipment at typical diversity receive sites, with multiple coaxial cables from the tower to the receiver/decoder, the CRX6 design has reduced six coaxial runs to one Ethernet cable, thus decreasing the susceptibility to lightning and reducing overall system costs.
In contrast to the old single, highly directional antenna, the CRX6 employs multiple antenna elements arranged to cover 360° of azimuth in overlapping sectors. The improved operation efficiency in signal acquisition focuses on the integration and optimization of the antenna d adaptive digital signal processing (ADSP) and maximal ratio design, use of adaptive digital signal processing (ADSP), and maximal ratio combining (MRC) techniques.
Operational efficiency in signal acquisition is improved by a focused approach to integration and optimization of the antenna design, use of adaptive digital signal processing (ADSP) and maximal ratio combining (MRC) techniques. In the past, these three areas have been treated and controlled independently. By combining and optimizing these areas, a new class of fully autonomous Central Receiving Systems provide significant value and efficiency. The IMT CRX6 system automatically optimizes the receive signal, virtually eliminating all human intervention.
A Web page controller is used to set up and monitor the CRX6. The controller features channel control, antenna receiver statistics, individual sector graphs, and can shut down specific directional antennas. An easy-to-use administration software package is supplied to set advanced functions, such as changing frequency plans, AES decryption keys, or unit naming.
The CRX6 is compatible with IMT’s eLink remote receiver interconnect enabling an accessory controller/receiver to power, control, and de-code signals received by single or multiple remote receivers. The eLink-enabled controllers include the DR3, BCRx, and MMCR. These receivers are traditionally fully integrated receivers but are extendable using the CRX6. These act as controller/decoders for the CRX6.
