! Safety Operation Guide
In order to ensure the credibility use of the product and the user’s safety, please comply
with the following items during installation and maintenance:
The system must be earthed properly. Please do not use two blades plugs and ensure the
alternating power supply ranged from 100v to 240v and from 50Hz to 60Hz.
Do not put the switcher in a place of too hot or too cold.
To avoid any damage by over heat, please keep the working environment good in ventilation
to radiate the heat when running the switcher.
The switchers should be turned off when in rainy and humid days or nonuse for a long time,
The alternating power supply line should be disconnected with the power socket during the
following operation.
A. Take out or reinstall any component of the switcher
B. Disconnect or re-connect any connector of the switcher
Please do not attempt to maintain and uncover the switcher for there is a high-voltage
component inside and the risk of the electric shock.
Do not splash any chemical product or liquid on or near the equipment.

MMX88A Modular Matrix Switcher
1. Introduction
1.1 About MMX88A Combo Matrix Switcher System
MMX88A is a high performance video and audio modular matrix switcher. Various changeable cards
make MMX88A flexible and all-in-one solution for different projects. It can support different video
signals with cross switching. Every video or audio signal is transmitted and switched independently, this
will cause the least signal attenuation, so that make the output signal keep at high fidelity.
There are two series of changeable cards work with MMX88A, input card MMX-4I series and output
card MMX-4O series, all the cards support hot plug & play. Users can choose the right card for different
application. There are different signal card is used for processing different video signal, including: HMDI,
DVI, VGA, SDI, OPTICAL and HDMI TP etc.
MMX88A have power fail memory function and audio can break away from or follow the video to switch. It
has RS232 port for serial control and optional IP port for TCP/IP control, easily to be controlled by third-part
devices.
MMX88A can be used for different project, because of its changeable card design. It is the combo
solution for multimedia conference rooms, control rooms, broadcasting rooms, shopping center etc. It
will handle all the audiovisual management, including the switching, driving, scaling etc.

9. Troubleshooting & Maintenance
1)
When the output image in the destination device connected to the MMX88A has ghost, such as the
projector output with ghost, please check the projector’s setting or try another high quality
connection cord.
2)
When there is a color losing or no video signal output, it may be the connectors between the input
and output end do not connect tightly.
3)
When the remote controller doesn’t works:
A. Maybe the battery is run out of, please change a new one.
B. Maybe the controller is broken, please ask the dealer to fix it.
4)
When user can not control the MMX88A by computer through its COM port, please check the COM
port number in the software and make sure the COM port is in good condition.
5)
When switching , the beeper beeps but without any output image:
A. Check with oscilloscope or multimeter if there is any signal at the input end. If there is no
signal input, it may be the input connection cord broken or the connectors loosen.
B. Check with oscilloscope or multimeter if there is any signal at the output end. If there is no
signal output, it may be the output connection cord broken or the connectors loosen.
C. Please make sure the destination device is exactly on the controlled output channel
D. If it is still the same after the above checking, it may be something wrong in the switcher.
Please send it to the dealer for fixing.
6)
If the output image is interfered, please make sure the system is earthed well.
7)
If the static becomes stronger when connecting the connectors, it may be due to the incorrect
grounding of the power supply, Please earth it again correctly, and otherwise it would bring damage
to the switcher or shorten its natural life.
8)
If the MMX88A cannot be controlled by the keys on the front panel, RS232 port or remote controller,
the host may has already been broken. Please send it to the dealer for fixing.
Remarks: For any more questions or problems, please try to get help from your local distributor, or
email PTN at support@PTN-electronics.com.
