About this Guide
This guide contains installation, configuration, and operating information for the Extron
FOX Matrix 3200 Switcher and FOX Matrix 7200 Switcher. These customizable matrix
switchers support up to 32 (FOX Matrix 3200) or 72 (FOX Matrix 7200) inputs and outputs.
NOTE: In this guide, “FOX matrix switcher” and “switcher” refer to either switcher model
unless otherwise specified.
About the FOX Matrix Switchers
The FOX matrix switchers (see figure 1 on the next page) distribute optical and electronic
input signals to one or more optical and electronic outputs. The matrix switchers can
route multiple input/output configurations simultaneously. The switchers are configurable,
assembled from individual input/output (I/O) boards, each of which supports 8 inputs by
8 outputs in a combination of the following types of board:
•
Singlemode and multimode fiber optic I/O 88 reclocking boards — These
non-pathologically-compliant fiber optic boards route signals that are compatible with all
Extron FOX 500, FOXBOX, FOX II, and PowerCage FOX fiber optic product lines.
•
FOX 3G I/O 88 SM P board — This pathologically-compliant fiber optic board passes
digital signals in broadcasting applications, while addressing the compatibility issues of
passing pathological signals generated from 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI signals over fiber
optic systems, including those defined by RP 178 and RP 198.
•
BNC 3G/HD/SD-SDI 88 I/O board — This pathologically-compliant board supports
and passes 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SD-SDI signals in their native (electronic) format.

Typical FOX Matrix 3200 Application
NOTE: The non-pathologically-compliant multimode and singlemode fiber optic I/O
boards are physically and functionally identical, with the exception of the effective
range of transmission. In this guide, any reference to fiber optic transmission applies to
either transmission mode unless otherwise specified. The pathologically-compliant fiber
optic I/O board is identified separately where appropriate.
By adding or removing I/O boards, the FOX matrix switcher is expandable and contractable
within the following ranges:
•
FOX Matrix 3200 — Includes up to four I/O boards. It is expandable from an 8-input by
8-output matrix to a 32-input by 32-output matrix.
•
FOX Matrix 7200 — Includes up to nine I/O boards. It is expandable from an 8-input
by 8-output matrix to a 72-input by 72-output matrix.
The Extron proprietary fiber optic signal, generated by FOX 500, FOXBOX, PowerCage FOX,
and FOX II transmitters, can include video, stereo audio, and transmitter-to-receiver RS-232
serial communications. The video component of the signal can be of a variety of formats,
depending on the transmitter and receiver:
•
RGB video
•
Digital Visual Interface (DVI) video
•
3G-SDI, HD-SDI, or SDI video
•
Low resolution (composite video or S-video)
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Introduction
2
NOTES:
• Compatible optical signals are digital signals from 270 Mbs through 4.25 Gbps,
sent and received via fiber optic small form factor pluggable (SFP) modules. The
FOX matrix switchers support all compatible optical signals, whether transmitted or
received by an Extron FOX system component or not.
• The Extron FOX 500, FOXBOX, and PowerCage FOX transmitter-to-receiver
communications, including the serial link, occupy one matrix switcher input
and output. This matrix switcher also supports the Extron FOX return (receiverto-transmitter) serial communications, but returning this signal stream to the
transmitter uses a separate matrix switcher input and output.
The switchers input and output the optical signals that they route on fiber optic transceiver
modules and the 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI video signals on BNC connectors.
The switcher has two 100 VAC to 240 VAC, 50-60 Hz, 175-watt power supplies that
provide worldwide power compatibility and reliability.
The matrix switcher is a single box solution to complex fiber optic and broadcast signal
routing applications. Each input and output is individually isolated and buffered. Any input
can be switched to any one output or all outputs with virtually no crosstalk or signal noise
between channels.
The matrix switcher can be remotely controlled using either the Extron Matrix Switchers
Control Program or the Simple Instruction Set (SIS). Control is available via:
•
A rear panel Remote RS-232/RS-422 port
•
A rear panel LAN port
•
A front panel RS-232 serial Config (configuration) port
The SIS is a set of basic ASCII code commands that provide simple control through a
control system or PC without the need to enter long strings of code. SIS commands can be
entered via any of the ports listed above.
The switcher can be operated remotely by any of the following connected to a serial port or
LAN port:
•
A control system
•
A PC computer
•
An Extron MKP 2000 or remote control panel
•

Fiber Cable Transmission Modes
Two versions of non-pathologically-compliant FOX matrix switcher fiber optic I/O board are
documented in this guide. They are categorized by the type of fiber optic cable, multimode
or singlemode, which defines the effective range of transmission:
•
Multimode — Long distance, up to 300 m (985 feet)
•
Singlemode — Very long distance, up to 30 km (18.75 miles)
NOTES:
• All transceiver modules on a fiber optic I/O board, as delivered from Extron, are
configured the same; either all multimode or all singlemode.
• You can mix multimode and singlemode fiber optic I/O boards in a FOX matrix
switcher, but you must ensure that you connect the proper transmission mode fiber
cables to the board.
Features
Fiber optic inputs and outputs — With fiber optic I/O boards, the switchers input and
output fiber optic signals on SFP optical connectors. The fiber optic I/O boards support
digital signals from 270 Mbs through 4.25 Gbps.
3G-SDI, HD-SDI, or SDI inputs and outputs — With 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O boards,
the switchers input and output SDI and HD-SDI signals on BNC connectors. The
3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O boards support multi-rate SDI at rates up to 2.97 Gbps, and comply
with SMPTE 259M-C, 292M, 424M, and ITU digital video standards.
Cross-format compatibility —
•
An input on an 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O board can be tied to an output on a fiber optic I/O
board or another 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O board.
•
An input on a fiber optic I/O board can be tied to an output on an 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O
board or another fiber optic I/O board.
Switching flexibility — The switcher provides individually buffered, independent matrix
switched outputs.
•
Tie any input to any or all outputs.
•
Quick multiple tie — Multiple inputs can be switched to multiple outputs
simultaneously. This allows all displays (outputs) to change from source to source at the
same time.
Input link detection — In critical environments or unmanned, remote locations, it may
be vital to know that sources are active and switching. The switcher confirms that input
sources are active by detecting light. Link detection provides instantaneous feedback via
the serial ports or LAN port of the switcher. The input information can be displayed on any
control system or in a Windows®-based control program on a local-area network (LAN) or
Internet (IP) connection.
Rooming — The switcher can be programmed to group multiple outputs to specific
“rooms”, allowing them to have their own presets.

Operational reliability — The FOX matrix switcher can support round-the-clock operation
in mission-critical applications, using a combination of hot-swappable components and
redundant power supplies.
•
Field upgradable, hot-swappable modular design — You can repair, upgrade,
reconfigure, or expand the matrix by simply installing a new I/O board or replacing a
board of one type with one of another. Hot-swappable components let you replace any
I/O board at any time without powering down the switcher.
•
Power redundancy — The built-in redundancy ensures zero downtime and no loss of
functionality through all but catastrophic power failure.
•
Two AC power inputs — The switcher can remain powered through any power
interruption short of a simultaneous loss of power on both power sources.
•
Primary and redundant, hot-swappable power supplies — The hotswappable, externally mounted redundant power supply is configured to
automatically take over the load from the primary supply in the case of a failure.
The complete power circuit, from the plug, through the power supply, to the
insertion of the power onto the power distribution plane, is separate and redundant
(see figure 2). If the installation includes uninterruptible or completely separate
power sources, the switcher remains powered up through any power interruption
except a simultaneous loss of power on both power sources.

The hot-swappable redundant power supply means no downtime for the switcher
and no loss of functionality should one power supply fail. Should a primary power
supply fail, the redundant power supply immediately assumes the load of the failed
primary supply. A failed power supply is easily replaceable from the rear at any time
without powering down the matrix and with no tools required.
•
•
Ease of maintenance — A failed power supply can be easily replaceable from the
rear at any time without powering down the matrix, and with no tools required.
•
Power supply status LEDs — Front panel and rear panel LEDs indicate the status
of the primary and redundant power supplies.
•
Hot-swappable fans — The hot-swappable, externally mounted fans allow quick
replacement to avert overheating in the case of a failure. Fans can be replaced
without powering down the switcher.
Operational flexibility — Operations such as input/output selection and setting of
presets can be performed using a variety of local and remote control mechanisms:
•
Front panel controller
•
Windows-based Matrix Switchers Control Program
•
Simple Instruction Set (SIS)
•
Remote control panels and keypads
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Introduction
5
SNMP support for remote monitoring — Supports the Simple Network Management
Protocol (SNMP) internet-standard protocol, allowing IT personnel to manage devices on
the IP network.
Laser controls — Non-pathologically-compliant fiber optic boards can be set, via SIS
commands, to individually or globally disable the output laser drivers so that a driver does
not output light. They can also be set, individually or globally, to automatic so that a driver
turns on when a tie is made involving that driver or turns off when no tie is made.
Upgradeable firmware — The firmware that controls all switcher operation can be
upgraded in the field via either serial port or the Ethernet port, without taking the switcher
out of service. Firmware upgrades are available for download at www.extron.com, and
can be installed using the Windows-based control program or the built-in HTML pages.
Labeling — The Button Label Generator software, available at www.extron.com, lets you
create labels to place in the front panel I/O buttons, with names, alphanumeric characters,
or color bitmaps for easy and intuitive input and output selection.
Global memory presets — 32 (FOX Matrix 3200) or 64 (FOX Matrix 7200) global memory
presets are a time-saving feature that lets you set up and store input/output configurations
in advance. You can then recall those configurations, when needed, with a few simple steps.
The presets are available via front panel operation or serial port or Ethernet control.
Rack mounting — Rack mountable in any conventional 19-inch wide rack.
Front panel security lockout modes (Executive mode) — If a matrix switcher is
installed in an open area, where operation by unauthorized personnel may be a problem, a
security lockout mode can be implemented. When the front panel is locked, a special button
combination or SIS command is required to unlock the front panel controller and make the
front panel fully operational.
I/O grouping — Allows the matrix to be virtually divided into smaller subswitchers, making
installation and control easier. I/O grouping limits the selection of inputs and outputs
to members of the same group. I/O grouping allows specific outputs, such as those
designated for a specific purpose, to be grouped together.
Video genlock (SDI / HD-SDI inputs only) — Allows for vertical interval switching and
enables smooth, seamless transitions when switching between synchronous video sources.
Separate bi-level (SDI) and tri-level (HD-SDI) references are provided on two separate BNC
connectors.
Permanent, rechargeable battery — The matrix switcher has a rechargeable lithium
battery to track time of day when power is disconnected.
WARNING: There is a danger of explosion if the battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace
it only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of
used batteries according to the instructions of the manufacturer.
AVERTISSEMENT : Si la pile est mal remplacée, il y a un risque d’explosion.
Remplacez la batterie seulement avec le même type ou un type similaire de pile,
recommandé par le fabricant. Débarrassez-vous des piles utilisées selon les
instructions du fabricant.
ATTENTION:
• Non-Extron personnel must not attempt to remove the battery. Doing so voids the
warranty.
• Du personnel ne faisant pas partie d’Extron ne doit pas essayer de retirer la
batterie. Cela annulerait la garantie.

WARNING: The FOX matrix switchers fiber optic I/O boards output continuous
invisible light (Class 1 rated), which may be harmful to the eyes; use with caution.
Plug the attached dust cap into the optical transceiver when the fiber optic cable
is unplugged.
AVERTISSEMENT : Le grilles de commutation de la gamme FOX cartes

lorsque le câble fibre optique est débranché.
NOTES:
• Ensure that you use the proper fiber cable for your I/O board. Typically, singlemode
fiber has a yellow jacket and multimode cable has an orange or aqua jacket.
• Unlike most Extron transmitters and receivers, which output an optical stream
on one connector in a block and receive a return optical stream on the second
connector in the same block, the FOX matrix switchers uses one connector on
the block as an input and the second connector on the same block as a
separate output.

page 71 for details on how to install and use the control software.
NOTE: The switcher can support either the RS-232 or the RS-422 serial
communication protocol, and can operate at 9600, 19200, 38400, or 115200
baud rates.
See the Command and Response Table for IP- and SNMP-Specific SIS
Commands on page 68 to configure this port under SIS control.
If desired, connect an MKP 2000 or MKP 3000 remote control panel to the Remote
RS-232/RS-422 connector. See the MKP 2000 Remote Control Panel User Guide or
the MKP 3000 User Guide for details.
Ethernet Connection
D LAN port (see figure 3 and figure 4) — For IP control of the system, connect the
Activity Link
LED LED
matrix switcher to a PC or to an Ethernet LAN via this RJ-45 connector.
You can use a PC to control the networked switcher with SIS commands
from anywhere in the world. You can also control the switcher from a
PC that is running the Extron Matrix Switchers Control Program or has
downloaded HTML pages from the switcher.
Link LED indicator — The green (link) LED indicates that the switcher is
properly connected to an Ethernet LAN. This LED should light steadily.
Act LED indicator — The yellow (activity) LED indicates transmission
of data packets on the RJ-45 connector. This LED should flicker as the
switcher communicates.
Cabling
It is vital that your Ethernet cables be the correct cable type and that they be properly
terminated with the correct pinout. Ethernet links use Category (CAT) 3, 5e, or CAT 6,
unshielded twisted pair (UTP) or shielded twisted pair (STP) cables, terminated with RJ-45
connectors. Ethernet cables are limited to a length of 328 feet (100 meters).
NOTES:
• Do not use standard telephone cables. Telephone cables do not support Ethernet
or Fast Ethernet.
• Do not stretch or bend cables. Transmission errors can occur.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Installation

The cable used depends on your network speed. The switcher supports both
10 Mbps (10Base-T — Ethernet) and 100 Mbps (100Base-T — Fast Ethernet), half-duplex
and full-duplex Ethernet connections.
•
10Base-T Ethernet requires CAT 3 UTP or STP cable at minimum.
•
100Base-T Fast Ethernet requires CAT 5e UTP or STP cable at minimum.
RJ-45 connector wiring
The Ethernet cable can be terminated as a straight-through cable or a crossover cable and
must be properly terminated for your application (see figure 10).

Switch Reference Connections
F Switch Reference connectors for bi-level and tri-level sync (see figure 3 on
page 8 and figure 4 on page 9) — (3G, HD-SDI, and SDI inputs and outputs only)
Connect an external sync signal to this BNC connector to genlock the video signal in
broadcast or other sync-critical applications.
The switcher makes ties to inputs on 3G/SDI/HD-SDI I/O boards during the vertical
interval period of the tied video, resulting in glitch-free video switching when the input
devices are also using the same sync timing. The FOX matrix switcher can use an
external signal to synchronize switching during the vertical interval. Without this external
sync locking feature, switching between inputs could result in brief video or picture
rolling (sync loss) or a brief change in the picture size.
Figure 11 shows a basic external sync configuration. The Bi-level or Tri-level sync
connector receives the timing signal. A tee connector attached to the cable allows the
signal to be passed on to another video device, if required. Terminate the tee connector
if desired.

Figure 12 on the next page shows another configuration, in which the timing source
passes through three video cameras and a video scan converter before connecting to
the switcher. This type of video camera is capable of synchronizing with the external
timing source for video editing applications.
NOTE: The Switch Reference connectors are tied into the I/O grouping feature of
the switcher:
• Ties to any input in I/O group 1 use the tri-level sync reference.
• Ties to any output in I/O group 2 use the bi-level sync reference.
See I/O grouping on page 33 to assign sync-critical inputs and outputs to the
appropriate I/O groups.
If no external sync timing source is connected to the switcher, switching occurs
immediately.

figure 4 on page 9) — Plug standard IEC power cords into these connectors to
connect the switcher to 100 VAC to 240 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz power sources.
NOTE: For the most reliable power, connect the power cord from the
Redundant power connector to either an uninterruptible power source or to a
power source that is completely independent from the primary power source.
H Primary and Redundant power supply indicator LEDs (see figure 3 and
figure 4) —
Green — Indicates that the associated power supply is operating within normal
tolerances.
Red — Indicates that the associated power supply is operating outside the normal
tolerances or has failed. See Removing and Installing a Power Supply Module
on page 113 section to replace the power supply.

NOTES:
• This port is independent of the rear panel Remote port and is not affected by
changes to the protocol of the rear panel port. The protocol of the front panel
port can be changed under SIS command control only. See the Command
and Response table for IP- and SNMP-Specific SIS commands on
page 68 to configure this port under SIS control.
• A front panel Configuration port connection and a rear panel Remote port
connection can both be active at the same time.
• The maximum distance from the matrix switcher to the controlling device
can be up to 200 feet (61 meters). Factors such as cable gauge, baud rates,
environment, and output levels (from the switcher and the controlling device) all
affect transmission distance. Distances of about 50 feet (15 meters) or less are
typically not a problem. In some cases the matrix switcher may be capable of
serial communications via RS-232 up to 250 feet (76 meters) away.
This port is RS-232 only, with its default protocols as follows:
•
9600 baud
•
no parity
•
1 stop bit
•
no flow control
•
8 data bits

the following actions:
•
Creating ties, sets of ties, and configurations
•
Changing a configuration
•
Viewing ties, sets of ties, and configurations
•
Creating I/O groups
•
Saving a preset
•

Definitions
The following terms apply to Extron matrix switchers, and are used throughout this guide:
Tie — An input-to-output connection.
Set of ties — An input tied to two or more outputs. (An output can never be tied to more
than one input.)
Configuration — May consist of one tie or one or more sets of ties.
Current configuration — The configuration that is currently being used (also called
configuration 0).
Global memory preset — A configuration that has been stored. The FOX Matrix 3200
can store up to 32 global memory presets in memory and the FOX Matrix 7200 can store
up to 64 presets. When a global preset is retrieved from memory, it becomes the current
configuration.
Room — A Room consists of a smaller subset of virtual outputs that are logically related to
each other, as determined by the operator. The switchers support up to 32 rooms, each of
which consists of 1 to 16 virtual outputs.
Room memory preset — A configuration consisting of virtual outputs in a single room
that has been stored. When a room preset is retrieved from memory, it becomes the current
configuration. The switchers support up to 10 room presets per room. Selecting a room
preset only changes the ties to outputs that are assigned to that room. All other ties outside
the room are not affected.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Operation
25
Power
Apply power by connecting one or both power cords between the Primary and Redundant
AC power connectors and the AC sources. The switcher performs a self-test that flashes
the front panel button indicators various colors and then turns them either off or to
background illumination. An error-free power-up self-test sequence leaves all input, output,
and control buttons either unlit or showing background illumination.
The current configuration and all presets are saved in non-volatile memory. When power is
applied, the most recent configuration is retrieved. The previous presets remain intact.
If an error occurs during the self-test, the switcher locks up and fails to respond to
commands or button pushes. If your switcher locks up on power-up, call the Extron S3
Sales and Technical Support Hotline. See the end of this guide for the phone number in
your region of the world.
Creating a Configuration
The current configuration can be changed using the front panel buttons. Change the current
configuration as follows:
1. Press the Esc button to clear any front panel button indications that may be lit.
2. Select the desired input and output(s) by pressing the input and output buttons.
•
To indicate potential ties, output buttons blink when an input is selected.
•
To indicate current ties, output buttons light steadily when an input is selected.
•
To clear unwanted outputs, press and release the associated lit output buttons. To
indicate potential unties, output buttons blink when an output is deselected but not
untied from the input.
3. Press and release the Enter button to accept the tie or to break an existing tie.
4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 to create or clear additional ties until the desired configuration
is complete.
NOTES:
• Only one input can be tied to an output.
• If a tie is made between an input and an output, and the selected output was
previously tied to another input, the older tie is broken in favor of the newer tie.
• If an input with no tie is selected, only the button for the selected input lights.
• As each input and output is selected, the associated output button blinks to
indicate a tentative tie. Buttons for outputs that were already tied to the input
light steadily. Outputs that are already tied can be left on, along with new

I/O Grouping
I/O grouping (see figure 22) is a matrix switcher feature that allows you to subdivide the front
panel controls of the matrix into four smaller functional sub-switchers and limit tie creation
using the front panel only. Inputs and outputs can be assigned to one of four groups or
not assigned to any group.

Figure 22. I/O Grouping of Incompatible Video Formats
NOTE: The I/O grouping feature is tied into the Switch Reference connectors on the
switcher. Ties to any input in I/O group 1 use the tri-level sync reference. Ties to any
output in I/O group 2 use the bi-level sync reference. Assign sync-critical inputs and
outputs to the appropriate I/O groups.
When you are creating ties on the front panel, inputs and outputs that are assigned to a
group can be tied only to other outputs and inputs within the same group. For example,
a front panel operator cannot tie an input that is assigned to group 1 to an output that is
assigned to group 2. Ungrouped inputs and outputs can be switched to outputs and inputs
in any group. Ties between groups (an input in group 1 tied to an output in group 2) can be
created under serial port or Ethernet control.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Operation
33
Suggested applications for the I/O grouping feature include:
•
Segregating sync-critical inputs and outputs
•
Segregating specific video formats to prevent an input in one video format from being
inadvertently applied to an output device that supports another video format
•
Segregating input and output devices that are in separate rooms
•
Segregating incompatible fiber signals, such as those from a FOX 500 system and
those from a FOX HD-SDI system
•
Isolating video from being displayed on specific output devices for operational security
reasons
The I/O groups can be set up on the front panel or by using the Remote port, Configuration
port, or LAN ports and either the SIS (see the Programming Guide section, beginning
on page 52 ) or the Matrix Switchers Control Program (see the Matrix Software section,
beginning on page 71).
Create I/O groups on the front panel as follows:
NOTE: I/O groups are protected when front panel Lock mode 2 is selected. You can
view the groups in Lock mode 2, but you cannot change them from the front panel
(see Locking the Front Panel (Executive Mode) on page 41).
1. Press the Esc button to clear any front panel button indications that may be lit.
2. To enter I/O Group mode, press and hold the Input 1 and Output 1 buttons until the
input and output buttons light to display the ungrouped inputs and outputs.
3. Press and release one of the Control buttons to select a group:
•
Press the Enter button to select group 1.
•
Press the Preset button to select group 2.
•
Press the View button to select group 3.

4. Select the one or more inputs and one or more outputs to assign to the group by

5. Allow the I/O Group mode to time out after approximately 30 seconds.
NOTES:
• Ties between groups (an input in group 1 tied to an output in group 2) can be
created under serial port or Ethernet control.
• Ties that were created before I/O groups were created remain valid, even if they
include inputs and outputs in different groups.
• Presets can be created under serial port or Ethernet control that tie inputs and
outputs across group boundaries. These presets are selectable from the front
panel.
• An input or output can be assigned to only one group. If you assign an input
or output to a group and that input or output is already assigned to a different
group, the older grouping is disboarded in favor of the new grouping.
• For I/O groups to have any function, at least two groups must be created.

Using Presets
The current configuration (configuration 0) can be saved as a preset in any one of
32 (FOX Matrix 3200) or 64 (FOX Matrix 7200) preset memory addresses. Presets can
be saved and recalled from the front panel. The preset locations are assigned to input
buttons 1 through 32 (64). When a preset is retrieved from memory, it becomes the current
configuration.
NOTES:
• Presets cannot be viewed from the front panel unless they are recalled as the
current configuration. Presets can be viewed using the Extron matrix switchers
Control Program (see the Presets menu description in the “Matrix Software”
section on page 85).
• The current configuration and all presets are stored in non-volatile memory. When
power is removed and restored, the current configuration is still active and all
presets are retained.
• When a preset is recalled, it replaces the current configuration, which is lost
unless it is also stored as a preset. The recalled preset overwrites all of the current
configuration ties in favor of the preset configuration ties.

Reset Operations
The rear panel has a Reset button that initiates four levels of resets (numbered 1, 3, 4, and 5
for the sake of comparison with an Extron IPL product). The Reset button is recessed, so
use a small screwdriver, a pointed stylus, or a ballpoint pen.
For different reset levels, press and hold the button while the switcher is running or press
and hold the button while you apply power to the switcher.
See the table on the next page for a summary of the modes.
ATTENTION:
• Review the reset modes carefully. Using the wrong reset mode may result in
unintended loss of flash memory programming, port reassignment, or a controller
reboot.
• Étudier de près les différents modes de réinitialisation. Appliquer le mauvais mode
de réinitialisation peut causer une perte inattendue de la programmation de la
mémoire flash, une reconfiguration des ports ou une réinitialisation du contrôleur.
NOTE: The reset modes listed on the next page close all open IP and Telnet
connections and close all sockets. Also, the following modes are separate functions,
not a continuation from Mode 1 to Mode 5.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Operation
43
Mode
Activation
1
Hold down the recessed Reset button
while applying power to the switcher.
NOTE: After a mode 1 reset is
performed, update the
switcher firmware to the latest
version. Do not operate the
switcher firmware version that
results from the mode 1 reset.
If you want to use the factory
default firmware, you must
upload that version again (see
the Matrix Software section
on page 80 for details on
uploading firmware).
Result
The switcher reverts to the factory default
firmware. Event scripting will not start if the
switcher is powered on in this mode. All user files
and settings (such as drivers, adjustments, and IP
settings) are maintained.
NOTE: If you do not want to update
firmware, or you performed a mode 1
reset by mistake, cycle power to the
switcher to return to the firmware version
that was running before the mode 1 reset.
Use the 0Q SIS command (see page 65)
to confirm that the factory default
firmware is no longer running (look for the
asterisk [*] following the version number.
Purpose and Notes
Use mode 1 to revert
to the factory default
firmware version if
incompatibility issues
arise with user-loaded
firmware.
3
Hold down the Reset button for about
3 seconds, until the Reset LED blinks
once, then press and release Reset
within 1 second.
Mode 3 turns events on or off. During resetting,
the Reset LED flashes 2 times if events are starting,
3 times if events are stopping.
Mode 3 is useful for
troubleshooting.
4
Hold down the Reset button for about
6 seconds, until the Reset LED blinks
twice (once at 3 seconds and again at
6 seconds). Then press and release
Reset within 1 second.
Mode 4:
• Enables ARP capability.
• Sets the IP address to the factory default.
• Sets the subnet address to the factory default.
• Sets the gateway address to the factory default.
• Sets port mapping to the factory default.
• Turns DHCP off.
• Turn events off.
The Reset LED flashes four times in quick succession during the reset.
Mode 4 enables you to
set IP address information using ARP and the
MAC address.
5
Hold down the Reset button for about
9 seconds, until the Reset LED blinks
three times (once at 3 seconds, again
at 6 seconds, and then again at 9 seconds). Then press and release Reset
within 1 second.
Mode 5 performs a complete reset to factory
defaults (with the exception of the firmware):
• Does everything mode 4 does.
• Resets most all real time adjustments, including:
clears all ties and presets
clears all mutes
clears all I/O grouping
• Resets all IP options.
• Removes and clears all files for the switcher.
Mode 5 is useful if
you want to start over
with configuration and
uploading or to replace
events.
Same as EZQQQ}
SIS command (see
page 64).
NOTE: Mode 5 reset clears
most adjustments. To save
these settings, use the
Windows-based Matrix
Switchers Control Program
and the File > Save MATRIX
settings as... selection
before you perform this reset
(see the Matrix Software
section on page 85).
The reset LED flashes four times in quick succession during the reset.

Performing a Hard Reset (Reset 1)
The hard reset function restores the switcher to the base firmware that it was shipped with.
After a hard reset, events do not automatically start, but user settings and files are restored.
Perform a hard reset as follows:
NOTE: The hard reset restores the factory-installed firmware. The switcher reverts
to that factory firmware the next time power is cycled off and on unless a firmware
update is performed before the power cycle.
1. If necessary, turn off power to the switcher.

Configuration Worksheets
Rather than trying to remember the configuration for each preset, use worksheets to record
this information. Make copies of the blank worksheet on page 50 or page 51 and use one
for each preset configuration. Cross out all unused or inactive inputs and outputs.
NOTE: All of the equipment in the following examples is connected through the
appropriate fiber optic transmitter or receiver.
Worksheet Example 1: System equipment
Figure 28 shows a worksheet for a switcher configured as a 24-input by 24-output matrix
in a fictional organization with the system hardware annotated. Inputs 10 and 11 have
no connections in this organization, so they have been crossed out on the worksheet.
Inputs 25 through 32 do not exist on this model, so they are crossed out. Similarly,
outputs 7, 14, 15, 16, and 25 through 32 are crossed out on the worksheet.

Serial Ports
The FOX matrix switcher has two serial ports that can be connected to a host device such
as a computer running the HyperTerminal or DataViewer utility, or a control system. These
ports make serial control of the switcher possible. The serial ports are:
•
Rear panel Remote port — A 9-pin D connector for serial RS-232 or RS-422 control
(see Remote port on page 13).

Front panel Configuration port — A 2.5 mm mini stereo jack for serial RS-232
control (see Front Panel Configuration Port on page 17).
NOTES:
• The serial ports, the Remote port and the Configuration port, are independent of
one another. A front panel Configuration port connection and a rear panel Remote
port connection can be active at the same time. Commands are processed in the
order received.
• The default serial port protocol of both ports is as follows:
• 9600 baud•
No parity•
8-bit
• No flow control•
1 stop bit
• The rear panel Remote port can be configured from the front panel (see Selecting
the Rear Panel Remote Port Protocol and Baud Rate, on page 42).
• The front panel Configuration port protocol can be changed via an SIS command
only. See the Set serial port parameters SIS Command, on page 69, to
configure both ports using an SIS command.
• The serial ports can be configured to operate at the 9600, 19200, 38400, or
115200 baud rate, but Extron recommends leaving these ports at 9600 baud only

Ethernet (LAN) Port
The rear panel Ethernet connector on the switcher can be connected to an Ethernet LAN or
WAN. Communications between the switcher and the controlling device is via Telnet (a TCP
socket using port 23). The SIS commands and the actions of the switcher are identical to
the commands and actions the switcher has when communicating with it via RS-232.
The Ethernet cable can be terminated as a straight-through cable or a crossover cable and
must be properly terminated for your application (see Ethernet Connection on page 13).
Default IP addresses
To access the FOX matrix switcher via the LAN port, you need the IP address for the unit,
and may need the subnet mask and the gateway address. If the IP address has been
changed to an address comprised of words and characters, you can determine the actual
numeric IP address using the ping (ICMP) utility (see Ethernet Link on page 117 for more
details). If the addresses have not been changed, the factory-specified defaults are:
•
IP address192.168.254.254
•
Gateway address0.0.0.0
•
Subnet mask255.255.0.0
Establishing a Connection
Establish a network connection to a FOX matrix switcher as follows:
1. Open a TCP socket to port 23 using the IP address of the switcher.
NOTE: If the local system administrators have not changed the value, the factoryspecified default, 192.168.254.254, is the value for this field.
The switcher responds with a copyright message including the copyright year, the name
of the product, firmware version, part number, and the current date and time.
NOTES:
• On password-protected connections, there are two levels of protection:
administrator and user. Administrators have full access to all switching
capabilities and editing functions. Users can create ties, create and recall
presets, set mutes, and view all settings with the exception of passwords.
• If the switcher is not password-protected, the device is ready to accept SIS
commands immediately after it sends the copyright message.
• If the switcher is password-protected, a password prompt appears below the
copyright message.
2. If the switcher is password protected, enter the appropriate administrator or user
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.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Programming Guide

Connection Timeouts
The Ethernet link times out after a designated period of time of no communications. By
default, this timeout value is set to five minutes but the value can be changed. See the
Configure port timeout SIS commands on page 69.
NOTE: Extron recommends leaving the default timeout at 5 minutes and periodically
issuing the SIS Q command (see Query firmware version SIS command on
page 65) to keep the connection active. If there are long idle periods, Extron
recommends disconnecting the socket and reopening the connection when another
command must be sent.
Number of Connections
A FOX matrix 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 an IP Link device,
keep the number of connections low and close unnecessary open sockets.
Using Verbose Mode
Telnet connections to a FOX matrix switcher can be used to monitor for 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 1 or 3. See the Verbose Mode SIS command on
page 69. 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 and the LAN 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. When a command is
valid, the unit executes it and sends a response to the host device. 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.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Programming Guide
55
Switcher-initiated Messages
When a local event such as a front panel operation or an IR 501 command string occurs,
the switcher responds by sending a message to the host. The switcher-initiated messages
are listed below (underlined).
The switcher does not expect a response from the host, but, for example, the host program
might request a new status.
(C) COPYRIGHT 20yy, Extron Electronics, FOX Matrix 3200, Vx.xx, 60-nnnn-01]
{day,date, time}]
— or —
(C) COPYRIGHT 20yy, Extron Electronics, FOX Matrix 7200, Vx.xx,60-nnnn-01]
{day,date, time}]
The switcher initiates the copyright message when it is first powered on or when a
connection via Internet protocol (IP) is established. Vx.xx is the firmware version number and
60-nnnn-01 is the switcher part number.
NOTE: {Day, date, time} are only reported if the connection is via the LAN port.
Password:]
The switcher initiates the password message immediately after the copyright message when
the controlling system is connected using TCP/IP or Telnet and the switcher is password
protected. This message means that the switcher requires an administrator or user level
password before it will perform the commands entered via this link. The switcher repeats
the password message response for every entry other than a valid password until a valid
password is entered.
]Login Administrator]
]Login User]
The switcher initiates the login message when a correct administrator or user password has
been entered. If the user and administrator passwords are the same, the switcher defaults
to administrator privileges.
Qik]
The switcher initiates the Qik message when a front panel tie operation has occurred.
Sprnn]
The switcher initiates the Spr message when a memory preset has been saved from the
front panel. “nn” is the preset number.
Rprnn]
The switcher initiates the Rpr message when a memory preset has been recalled from the
front panel. “nn” is the preset number.
Vmtnn*x]
The switcher initiates the Vmt message when a channel output mute is toggled on or off
from the front panel. nn is the output number and x is the mute status: 1 = on, 0 = off.
Exen]
The switcher initiates the Exe message when the front panel security lockout (executive
mode) is toggled on or off from the front panel. “n” is the lock mode: 0 = unlocked,
1 = locked.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Programming Guide
56
Switcher Error Responses
When the switcher receives an SIS command and determines that it is valid, it performs the
command and sends a response to the host device. If the switcher is unable to perform
the command because the command is invalid or contains invalid parameters, the switcher
returns an error response to the host. The error response codes are:
E01 — Invalid input channel number (out of range)
E10 — Invalid command
E11 — Invalid preset number (out of range)
E12 — Invalid output number (out of range)
E13 — Invalid value (out of range)
E14 — Invalid command for this configuration
E17 — Timeout (caused only by direct write of global presets)
E21 — Invalid room number
E24 — Privileges violation (Ethernet only. Personnel logged in as users attempting
operations requiring administrator privileges. Users have access to all view and read
commands [other than the administrator password], and can create ties and
presets, and mute and unmute the output.)
Using the Command and Response Tables
The command and response table begins on page 59. Symbols, defined on the next
page and used throughout the table, represent variables in the command and response
fields. Command and response examples are shown throughout the table. The SIS

NOTES:
• The switcher reports the mute status for all outputs, up to the highest numbered output on the highest numbered slot with an
I/O board installed. The switcher does not recognize gaps in the board installation. For example, if boards are installed in only
slots 1 and 3, leaving slot 2 empty, the switcher returns mute status for 24 sequential outputs. The mute status for the outputs in
slot 2, inputs 9 through 16, can be ones or zeroes (the switcher allows you to mute an output that is not installed, so long as it is
numbered lower than the highest numbered output installed).
• When the switcher is in Verbose mode 1 or 3 (see the Set verbose mode SIS command on page 69), the response includes

List input link detection
NOTE: The switcher reports the link status for all outputs, up to the highest numbered output on the highest numbered slot with an I/O
board installed. The switcher does not recognize gaps in the board installation. For example, if only two boards are installed, in slots 1
and 3, leaving slot 2 empty, the switcher returns link status for 24 sequential inputs. The input link response for the inputs supported by
the board in slot 2, inputs 9 through 16, are all zeroes.

Matrix Software
This section introduces the following software programs, which are available on the Extron
website:
•
Matrix Switchers Control Program
•
Button Label Generator Program
Matrix Switchers Control Program
The Extron Matrix Switchers Control Program provides an easy way to set up ties and sets
of ties. The program is compatible with Windows 2000, Windows XP, and later. Updates to
this program can be downloaded from the Extron website.
The program communicates with the switcher via the following ports:
•
Rear panel LAN port — A password-protected RJ-45 connection (see Ethernet
Connection on page 13 and “Software Operation via Ethernet,” below).
•
Rear panel Remote RS-232/RS-422 port — A 9-pin D connector for serial RS-232
or RS-422 control (see Remote port on page 13 and Software Operation via a
Serial Port, on the next page).
•
Front Panel Configuration port — A 2.5 mm mini stereo jack for serial RS-232
control only (see Front Panel Configuration Port on page 17 and Software
Operation via a Serial Port, on the next page).
Software Operation via Ethernet
When a matrix switcher is connected to an Ethernet WAN or LAN, up to 200 users can be
connected to operate it, locally or remotely, using the Matrix Switchers Control Program (see
Ethernet Connection on page 13 for installation details).
Connection to the switcher via the Ethernet is password protected. There are two levels of
password protection:
•
Administrators have full access to all FOX matrix switching capabilities and editing
functions.
•
Users can select inputs and outputs, set and recall presets, and view all settings with
the exception of passwords.
If the same password or no password is required for logging on, all personnel log on with
administrator privileges. Fields and functions that exceed user privileges are not available in
the Matrix Switchers Control Program when the operator is logged on as a user.
Ethernet protocol settings
The IP Settings / Options window (see figure 36 on page 76) provides a location
for viewing and, if connected via a serial port or if logged on via the LAN port as an
administrator, editing settings unique to the Ethernet interface.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Matrix Software
71
Software Operation via a Serial Port
The serial ports are independent of one another. A front panel Configuration port connection
and a rear panel Remote RS-232/RS-422 port connection can be active at the same time.
The default serial port protocol of both ports is as follows:
•
9600 baud
•
No parity
•
•
1 stop bit
•
No flow control
8 data bits
The serial ports can be configured to operate at the 9600, 19200, 38400, or 115200 baud
rate but Extron recommends leaving these ports at 9600 baud only.
See the Serial port parameters SIS commands on page 69 to configure either port
using an SIS command.

UL Guidelines
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) guidelines pertain to the installation of the
matrix switcher into a rack.
•
Elevated operating ambient temperature — If the equipment is installed in a closed
or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment
may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consider installing the equipment in an
environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature specified by Extron
(Tma = +32 to +122 °F [0 to +50 °C]).
•
Reduced air flow — Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the
amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
•
Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack so that uneven mechanical
loading does not create a hazardous condition.
•
Circuit overloading — Consider the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit
and the effect that overloading of the circuits might have on overcurrent protection and
supply wiring. Use appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings when
addressing this concern.
•
Reliable earthing (grounding) — Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment
should be maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections other
than direct connections to the branch circuit (such as the use of power strips).

Mounting Instructions
If desired, rack mount the switcher as follows:
1. Insert the unit into the rack, aligning the mounting bracket holes with those in the rack.
2. Secure the switcher to the rack using the supplied bolts.
Battery and Power Precautions
The matrix switcher is provided with a permanently installed (factory-soldered in place)
lithium battery. The battery maintains the real time clock in the event of power failure or
extended storage periods and does not affect the normal operation of the switcher. If the
battery becomes ineffective, return the switcher to Extron for repair.
WARNING: There is a danger of explosion if the battery is incorrectly replaced. Do not
attempt to remove or replace the internal battery.
AVERTISSEMENT : Si la pile est mal remplacée, il y a un risque d’explosion. N’essayez
pas de retirer ou de remplacer la batterie interne.
ATTENTION:
• This unit uses double pole/neutral fusing. Do not operate the equipment with only
one power supply cord connected.
• Cette unité utilise double pôles/fusion neutre. N’utilisez pas l’équipement avec
seulement un cordon d’alimentation connecté.
Removing and Installing an I/O Board or Blank Panel
WARNING: The FOX matrix switchers fiber optic I/O boards output continuous invisible
light (Class 1 rated), which may be harmful to the eyes; use with caution.
• Do not look into the fiber optic cable connectors or into the fiber optic cables
themselves.
• Plug the attached dust cap into the optical transceiver when the fiber optic cable is
unplugged.
AVERTISSEMENT : Le grilles de commutation de la gamme FOX cartes d’entrée/
sortie fibre optique émet une lumière invisible en continu (conforme à la classe 1) qui
peut être dangereux pour les yeux, à utiliser avec précaution.
• Ne regardez pas dans les connecteurs de câble fibre optique sur le panneau arrière
ou dans les câbles fibre optique eux-mêmes.
• Branchez la protection contre la poussière dans l’ensemble émetteur/récepteur
lorsque le câble fibre optique est débranché.
NOTES:
• As factory configured, the fiber optic I/O boards are either 100 percent singlemode
or 100 percent multimode, but you can remove a fiber optic transceiver module
(one input and one output) of one transmission mode and replace it with a block of
the other transmission mode.
You can mix transmission mode transceiver modules on a fiber optic I/O board,
provided that you ensure that each fiber cable and connected devices are the
appropriate transmission mode for the transceiver module. Typically, singlemode
fiber has a yellow jacket and multimode cable has an orange or aqua jacket.
• For proper cooling and air flow, boards or blank panels should be installed in all
locations during normal switcher operations.

Locations A through H correspond to the input and output numbers identified by the board
position numbers. (For example, the input and output numbers supported by the I/O board
in location 9 - 16 (slot 2) are as follows: A = 9, B = 10, C = 11, D = 12, E = 13, F = 14,
G = 15, and H = 16.)
On the fiber optic I/O boards, locations A through H correspond to the transceiver modules,
each of which includes an input and an output. Therefore, locations A through H are
numbered from left to right.
On the 3G/SDI/HD-SDI I/O boards, inputs and outputs are grouped separately, with inputs
A through H on the left and outputs A through H on the right.
ATTENTION:
• 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. ESD can damage circuits, even if you cannot feel, see, or hear it.
• Ne pas toucher les composants électroniques ou les connecteurs sur la carte mère
ou sur les circuits imprimés sans être électriquement relié à la terre. Manipuler
les circuits imprimés en les tenant seulement par leurs bords. Cela pourrait
endommager le commutation de la gamme FOX.
NOTE: The I/O boards are hot-swappable. You do not need to power down the
switcher to remove or install an I/O board.

Ethernet
Connection
This section provides a high level discussion of the Ethernet connection to the switcher and
a primer on the subject of subnetting. Topics that are covered, include:
•
Ethernet Link
•
Subnetting — A Primer
Ethernet Link
The rear panel Ethernet connector on the FOX matrix switcher can be connected to an
Ethernet LAN or WAN. This connection makes SIS control of the switcher possible using a
computer connected to the same LAN.
Ethernet Connection
The Ethernet cable can be terminated as a straight-through cable or a crossover cable and
must be properly terminated for your application (see figure 10 on page 14).
•
Crossover cable — Direct connection between the computer and the
FOX matrix switcher
•
Patch (straight-through) cable — Connection of the FOX matrix switcher to an
Ethernet LAN
Default IP Address
To access the FOX matrix switcher via the LAN port, you need the IP address of the
switcher. If the address has been changed to an address comprised of words and
characters, you can determine the actual numeric IP address using the ping utility. If the
address has not been changed, the factory-specified default is 192.168.254.254.
Ping can also be used to test the Ethernet link to the FOX matrix switcher.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Ethernet Connection
117
Pinging to Determine the Extron IP Address
The ping utility is available at the Command prompt. Ping tests the Ethernet interface between
the computer and the FOX matrix switcher. Ping can also be used to determine the actual
numeric IP address from an alias and to determine the web address.
Ping the switcher as follows:
1. On the Windows task bar, click on Start > Run.
2. At the Open prompt, type command.
3. Click the OK button.
4. At the Command prompt, type ping {IP address} and then press <Enter>. The
computer returns a display similar to the one shown in figure 70.

Figure 70. Typical Ping Response
The line Pinging ... reports the actual numeric IP address, regardless of whether you
entered the actual numeric IP address or an alias name.
Pinging to Determine the Web IP Address
The ping utility has a modifier, -a, that directs the command to return the web address
rather than the numeric IP address.
At the Command prompt, type ping -a {IP address} and then press <Enter>. The return
display is similar to the ping response shown in figure 71, except that when you specify the
-a modifier, the line Pinging mail... reports the web IP address rather than the numeric
IP address, regardless of whether you entered the actual numeric IP address or an alias
name.
FOX Matrix 3200 and 7200 Switchers • Ethernet Connection
118
Configuring the Switcher for Network Use via the ARP Command
The ARP (address resolution protocol) command tells your computer to associate the MAC
(media access control) address of the FOX matrix switcher with the assigned IP address.
You must then use the ping utility to access the controller, at which point the IP address of
the controller is reconfigured.
Use ARP to configure the IP address as follows:
1. Obtain a valid IP address for the FOX matrix switcher from your network administrator.
2. Obtain the MAC address (UID #) of the FOX matrix switcher from the label on its rear
panel. The MAC address should have this format: 00-05-A6-xx-xx-xx.
3. If the FOX matrix switcher has never been configured and is still set for factory defaults,
proceed to step 4. If not, perform a mode 4 system reset and then proceed to step 4.
For detailed information on reset modes, see Performing Soft System Resets
(Resets 3, 4, and 5) on page 45.
NOTE: The FOX matrix switcher must be configured with the factory default IP
address (192.168.254.254) before the ARP command is executed, as described
below.
4. At the PC, access the Command prompt (see Pinging to Determine the Extron IP
Address on the preceding page, steps 1 through 3), then enter the arp –s command.
Type in the desired new IP address for the unit (obtained in step 1) and the MAC
address of the unit (from the rear panel of the unit), for example,
arp –s 10.13.197.7 00-05-A6-03-69-B0 and then press <Enter>.
The computer returns the command prompt (C:\).
After you issue the arp -s command, the controller changes to the new address and
starts responding to the ping requests to the new address, as described in the next
step.
NOTE:You must ping the FOX matrix switcher for the IP address change to take
place. The response should show the new IP address, as shown in figure 71.
5. Execute a ping command by entering ping followed by a space and the new IP address
at the command prompt. For example:
ping 10.13.197.7
C:\>ping 10.13.197.7

6. After verifying that the IP address change was successful, enter and issue the arp –d
command at the Command prompt. For example:
arp –d 10.13.197.7 removes 10.13.197.7 from the ARP table
or
arp –d* removes all static IP addresses from the ARP table.

2. If necessary, at the password prompt, type the appropriate password and then press
<Enter>.
Connection to the switcher via the Ethernet can be password protected. There are
two levels of password protection: administrator and user. A person logged on as an
administrator has full access to all matrix switcher switching capabilities and editing
functions. Users can create ties, set mutes, and view all settings with the exception of
passwords. By default, the FOX matrix switcher is shipped with both passwords set to
{carriage return}.
Once you are logged in, the switcher returns either Login Administrator or Login
User. No further prompts are displayed until you break or disconnect the connection to
the FOX matrix switcher.
Escape character and Esc key
When Telnet is first started, the utility advises that the Escape character is ‘Ctrl+]’. Many
SIS commands include the keyboard <Esc> key. Consequently, some confusion may exist
between the Escape character and the Escape key.
The Telnet Escape character is a key combination, the <Ctrl> key and the <]> key pressed
simultaneously, which returns you to the Telnet prompt while leaving the connection to the
FOX matrix switcher intact.
The Escape key is the <Esc> key on the computer keyboard.
Local echo
Once connected to the FOX matrix switcher, by default, Telnet does not display your
keystrokes on the screen. SIS commands are typed in blindly and only the SIS responses
are displayed on the screen. To command Telnet to show keystrokes, at the Telnet prompt,
type set local_echo and then press <Enter> before you open the connection to the switcher.
With local echo turned on, keystrokes and the responses of the switcher are displayed on
the same line. For example: 1*1!In1 Out1 All, where 1*1! is the SIS command and
In1 Out1 All is the response.
With local echo turned on, all keystrokes are displayed, even those that should be masked,
such as the password entry. For example, when entering a password with local echo turned
on, you see a display such as a*d*m*i*n*, where admin is the keyed in password and
***** is the masked response.
You can turn off local echo by typing unset local_echo and then pressing <Enter> at
the Telnet prompt. If you are connected to the FOX matrix switcher and need to access the
Telnet prompt to turn local echo off, type the Escape character (<Ctrl>+<]>).
Set carriage return-line feed
Unless commanded otherwise, Telnet transmits a line feed character only (no carriage
return) to the connected switcher when you press the <Enter> key. This is the correct
setting for SIS communication with the switcher. The Telnet set crlf command forces
Telnet to transmit carriage return and line feed characters when <Enter> is pressed, but if
crlf is set, the SIS link with the switcher does not function properly.
Close
To close the link to the switcher, access the Telnet prompt by typing the Escape character
(<Ctrl>+<]>). At the Telnet prompt, type close, and then press <Enter>.
Help
For Telnet command definitions, at the Telnet prompt, type ? and then press <Enter>.

Quit
Exit the Telnet utility by typing quit and then pressing <Enter> at the Telnet prompt. If you
are connected to the FOX matrix switcher, access the Telnet prompt by typing the Escape
character (<Ctrl>+<]>).
Subnetting — A Primer
It is not the purpose of this guide to describe TCP/IP protocol in detail. However, some
understanding of TCP/IP subnetting (a subnet is a subset of a network — a set of IP devices
that have portions of their IP addresses in common) is necessary in order to understand
the interaction of the FOX matrix switcher and the mail server gateway. To understand
subnetting at the level required to install and operate the FOX matrix switcher, you must
understand the concepts of a gateway, local and remote devices, IP addresses and octets,
and subnet masks and octets.
Gateways
The FOX matrix switcher can communicate with the email server that the switcher uses
for email notification directly (if they are on the same subnet) or the communication can be
routed via a gateway (a computer that provides a link between different subnets).
Local and Remote Devices
The local and remote devices are defined from the point of view of the function being
described. In this guide, subnetting is an issue when you are using the controlling PC to set
TCP/IP and email values in the matrix switcher (see IP Settings / Options Window on
page 76 and Email Settings Page on page 101). When you are setting up the variables
for email notification, which may include subnetting, the matrix switcher is the local device
and the email server is the remote device.
IP Addresses and Octets
Valid IP addresses consist of four 1-, 2-, or 3-digit numeric subfields, properly called
“octets,” separated by dots (periods) (see figure 73). Each octet can be numbered from 000
through 255. Leading zeroes, up to three digits total per octet, are optional. Values of 256
and above are invalid.
Typical IP Address: 192.168.254.254
Octets
Figure 73. Typical IP Address
Subnet Masks and Octets
The subnet mask (see figure 74) is used to determine whether the local and remote devices
are on the same subnet or different subnets. The subnet mask consists of four numeric
octets separated by dots. Each octet can be numbered from 000 through 255. Leading
zeroes, up to three digits total per octet, are optional. Each octet typically contains either
255 or 0. The octets determine whether or not the same octets of two IP addresses will be
compared when determining if two devices are on the same subnet.
255 indicates that this octet will be
compared between two IP addresses.
0 indicates that this octet will not be
compared between two IP addresses.
Typical Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0

Determining Whether Devices Are on the Same Subnet
To determine the subnet, the IP address of the local device is compared to the IP address
of the remote device (see figure 75). The octets of each address are compared or not
compared, depending on the value in the related subnet mask octet.
•
If a subnet mask octet contains the value 255, the related octets of the IP addresses of
the local device and the remote device are unmasked.
Unmasked octets are compared (indicated by ? in figure 75).
•
If the subnet mask octet contains the value 0, the related octets of the IP addresses of
the local device and remote device are masked.
Masked octets are not compared (indicated by X in figure 75).
If the unmasked octets of the two IP addresses match (indicated by = in figure 75, example 1),
the two addresses are on the same subnet.
If the two unmasked fields do not match (indicated by ≠ in figure 75, example 2 and
example 3), the addresses are not on the same subnet.
