About the FOX 4G Matrix 14400
The FOX 4G Matrix 14400 (figure 1-1) is a configurable matrix
switcher that distributes optical signals. Fiber optic I/O boards
route signals that are compatible with all Extron FOX 500,
FOXBOX, FOX 2G, and FOX HD-SDI fiber optic product lines.
The matrix switcher routes any input signal to any combination
of outputs. The matrix switcher can route multiple input/
output configurations simultaneously.
The Extron proprietary fiber optic signal, generated by Extron
FOX fiber optic transmitters, can include video, stereo audio,
and transmitter-to-receiver RS-232 serial communications. The
video component of the signal can be RGB video, Digital Visual
Interface (DVI) video, SDI/HD-SDI video, or low resolution
video, depending on the transmitter and receiver.

N Compatible optical signals are digital signals from
270 Mbs through 4.25 Gbps that are sent and received via
fiber optic small form factor pluggable (SFP) modules. The
FOX 4G Matrix 14400 supports all compatible optical
signals, whether transmitted or received by an Extron
fiber optic system component or not.
N The FOX transmitter-to-receiver communications,
including the serial link, occupy one matrix switcher input
and output.
This matrix switcher can also support the FOX return
(receiver-to-transmitter) serial communications, but
returning this signal stream to the transmitter occupies a
separate matrix switcher input and output.
The matrix switcher can be remotely controlled via its Ethernet
LAN port or either of two serial ports using either Extron’s
Windows-based Matrix Switchers Control Program or the
Simple Instruction Set (SIS).
The switcher has two internal, hot-swappable 100 VAC to
240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 400-watt power supplies that provide
worldwide power compatibility and reliability.

Singlemode fiber optic 16x16 I/O board, equipped with
removable fiber optic transceiver modules
•
Multimode fiber optic 16x16 I/O board, equipped with
removable fiber optic transceiver modules
N As listed above, two versions of the fiber optic I/O boards
are documented in this manual. They are categorized by
the type of fiber optic cable, multimode or singlemode,
which defines the effective range of transmission:
•
•
Singlemode — Very long distance, up to 20 km
(12.43 miles)
Multimode — Long distance, up to 150 m (492')
By adding or removing I/O boards, you can expand and
contract the FOX 4G Matrix 14400 from an 16-input by 16-output
matrix up to a 144-input by 144-output matrix.
N On a fiber optic I/O board as delivered from Extron,
all transceiver modules are configured the same:
either all multimode or all singlemode. You can mix
multimode and singlemode fiber optic I/O boards in a
FOX 4G Matrix 14400 switcher, but you must ensure that
you connect the proper transmission mode fiber cables to
the board.

Remote Control
Selected SIS Commands
The switchers have Simple Instruction Set (SIS ) commands that
you can use for operation and configuration. You can run these
commands from a PC connected to either of the switcher’s serial
ports or the Ethernet port. See b, c, and g, on pages 2-5 and
2-6, for connection information.
™
Establishing a network (Ethernet) connection
Establish a network connection as follows:
1.
Open a TCP socket to port 23 using the switcher’s IP
address.
N The factory default IP address is 192.168.254.254.
The switcher responds with a copyright message including
the date, the name of the product, the firmware version,
the part number, and the current date/time.
N If the switcher is not password-protected, the device is now
ready to accept SIS commands.
If the switcher is password-protected, the Password
prompt appears.
2.
If necessary, enter the appropriate password.
If the password is accepted, the switcher responds with
Login User or Login Administrator.
If the password is not accepted, the Password prompt
reappears.
Connection timeouts
The Ethernet link times out and disconnects after a designated
period of no communications. By default, this timeout value
is set to 5 minutes, but the value can be changed. See the
Configure current port timeout or Configure
global IP port timeout SIS commands on page 3-7.
Number of connections
A switcher can have up to 200 simultaneous TCP connections,
including all HTTP sockets and Telnet connections. When
the connection limit is reached, the switcher accepts no new
connections until some have been closed. No error message or
indication is given that the connection limit has been reached.
To maximize performance of your switcher, the number of
connections should stay low and unnecessary open sockets
should be closed.
Verbose mode
Telnet connections to a switcher can be used to monitor changes
that occur on the switcher, such as front panel operations and
SIS commands from other Telnet sockets or a serial port. For
a Telnet session to receive change notices from the switcher,
the Telnet session must be in verbose mode 3. See the Set
verbose mode command on page 3-7. In verbose mode 3,
the Telnet socket reports changes in messages that resemble SIS
command responses.
Host-to-switcher instructions
The switcher accepts SIS commands through either serial port.
SIS commands consist of one or more characters per command
field. They do not require any special characters to begin or
end the command character sequence. Each switcher response
to an SIS command ends with a carriage return and a line feed
(CR/LF = ]), which signals the end of the response character
string. A string is one or more characters.
N The table that begins on the next page is a partial list
of SIS commands. For a complete listing, refer to the
FOX 4G Matrix 14400 User's Manual.
N Extron recommends leaving the default timeout at
5 minutes and periodically issuing the Query (Q)
command to keep the connection active or disconnecting
the socket and reopening the connection when necessary.

C Do not touch the electronic components or the
connectors on the backplane or on the circuit boards
without being electrically grounded. Handle circuit
boards by their edges only. Electrostatic discharge can
damage circuits, even if you cannot feel, see, or hear it.
Typically, singlemode fiber has a yellow jacket and
multimode cable has an orange jacket.
N For proper cooling and air flow, boards and/or blank panels
should be installed in all locations during normal switcher
operations.

Place the removed board on an anti-static surface or in an
anti-static container.
6.
Circuit boards can be replaced for fault correction. They also
can be added or removed to increase or decrease the I/O
configuration (size) of the switcher.
For an I/O board, orient the board to be installed so that
transceiver module A (fiber board) is on the left and
transceiver module P is on the right.
7.
Remove and replace and I/O board or blank panel as follows:
For an I/O board, align the board with the left and right
chassis guides (above).
8.
Gently slide the board or blank panel into the enclosure.
For an I/O board, slide the board toward the front panel
until it meets resistance.
Gently seat the board or panel in the backplane.
N See "A note on I/O boards", on page 2-2, to understand the
different arrangement of connectors on the I/O boards.
N The I/O boards are hot-swappable. You do not need to
power down the switcher to remove an I/O board.

Removing and Installing a Power Supply
Module
The two power supply modules (primary power supply and
redundant power supply) are identical and hot-swappable.
Each power supply module has a 2-color LED, visible on
the rear panel, that indicates the status of the power supply
outputs. If the LED is lit green, the power supply is operating
normally. If the LED is lit red, the supply has failed and should
be replaced at the earliest opportunity. LEDs with identical
meaning are also on the front panel.
