PESA unveils Cheetah 512XR advanced router

November 17, 2005

PESA has extended its line of Cheetah routing switchers to include the new Cheetah 512XR, which can be configured to 512x512, non-expandable 1024x128, or 512x256 with fully redundant crosspoints in a 27RU form factor.

In addition to its small physical size, the Cheetah 512XR offers low power consumption; SDI, ASI, and HD-SDI signal support; internal fiber I/Os; and optional built-in conversion cards that reduce the space required for high-quality signal distribution.

The new Cheetah 512XR is designed for mission-critical applications. It provides full redundancy for power, control and crosspoints within the same 27RU frame. Each power supply supports either N+1 or full redundant power, and because of its low-power consumption, the system requires only a minimum of cooling.
