Each MT107-301/305/306 connects to the
MT107-100 Matrix Engine. A total of 7 output
expansion cards may be connected to the
MT107-100 Engine. Each card is connected via
specially provided with the Engine high bandwidth
video cables.
As part of the MT107-100 Matrix Engine, each
MT107-301/305/306 card has signal detection
circuitry, which allows to determine presence of
signal on any output.

OPERATION
Step 1. Locate the MT107-100 currently installed
in the Multi-Tasker™. Ensure there are
enough empty slots in the enclosure to
allow
for
the
one
or
more
MT107-301/305/306's to be installed.

7.1 RS-232 CONTROL
The MT107-301/305/306 has many advanced
remote control capabilities when used in the
Multi-Tasker™ Enclosure as part of an
MT107-100 Matrix Switcher. These capabilities
are accessible through standard RS-232
communication. The actual controlling can be
accomplished through a computer control
system or any other device capable of sending
RS-232 commands.
Step 2. Route the ribbon cables through the
notch in the add-on boards and connect
to the MT107-100 base assembly using
special high bandwidth cables provided
with the Engine. Make sure that cable
connector is secured in the socket of the
input card.
7.2 DESCRIPTION OF COMMANDS
Step 3. Carefully, slide the MT107-301/305/306
into slot of the Multi-Tasker™ Enclosure.
Please, see the MT107-100 User's Guide for a
full listing of commands available for the
MT107 301/305/306 as part of a Multi-Tasker™
Matrix Switcher.
Step 4. Secure each card by tightening the
retainer screws at the top and bottom of
each card.
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
8
We have carefully tested and have found no
problems in the supplied MT107-301/305/306.
However, we would like to offer suggestions for the
following:
8.1 BAD SIGNAL
Cause 1: The display is connected to the
wrong card.
Solution:
Make sure the video signals are
coming from the video card (-305)
and sync signals are coming from
the sync card (-306). If the signal is
still bad, see Cause 2.
Cause 2: The switch settings are wrong.
Solution:
9
If the output card is an MT107-301,
make sure the Video/Sync switch
settings are in the correct position
for the signal type on each channel.
If the signal is still bad, call Altinex
at (714) 990-2300.
MULTI-TASKER™
8.2 NO DISPLAY
Cause 5: The display has a problem.
Solution:
Cause 1: The source has a problem.
Solution:
Check the source and make sure
that there is a signal present and all
source connections are correct. If
the source is working and there is
still no display, see Cause 2.
Make sure the display has power
and is turned ON. If there is still no
display, please call Altinex at
(714) 990-2300.
ALTINEX POLICY

Cause 2: The output signal is not detected.
9.1 LIMITED WARRANTY/RETURN POLICY
Solution 1: In MTSetup™, or other control
software,
send
the
[SDO]
command.
This
command
is
detailed in the MT107-100's User
Guide. Verify a signal is detected
for the output number in question. If
a signal is not detected, see
Solution 2.
Please
see
the
Altinex
website
at
www.altinex.com for details on warranty and
return policy.
9.2 CONTACT INFORMATION

Cause 3: The path is not selected.
Solution:
E-MAIL: solutions@altinex.com
Make sure the input to output path
is correctly selected.
For example, Input 1 is connected
to Output 17 in the matrix engine.
Physically, the source signal is
connected to Input 1 and the
display cable is connected to
Output 17. See RS-232 accessible
commands in Section 7 of the
MT100-107's User Guide for
command details.
If no display
Cause 4.
is
present,
see
Cause 4: Cable connections are incorrect.
