The OG3-FR is a next-generation 2RU high-density modular frame offering increased available user (net) power and enhanced Gigabit Ethernet control/monitoring in a high-capacity 20-slot format. (Maximum card capacity is determined by card model(s) installed and other factors. See 20-Slot Frame Card Capacity and Rear Modules on next page.) The frame's lightweight construction and removable, heavy-duty hinged front door is designed for maximum durability. Long term reliability is assured with the front mounted cooling fans and optional redundant power supply.
The OG3-FR-CN offers the same Ethernet connectivity via DashBoard as our previous 8321-CN frame in addition to providing gigabit Ethernet networking which enhances present and future support of the openGear remote control platform, and supports the DataSafe feature which allows faster swap-out of cards (with all card settings stored locally on the frame network card instead of on the card). A new front-panel LCD display shows a user-configured frame name, IP address, and status.
Separate forced-air cooling paths are provided for the card area and the power supply areas. An intelligent fan controller adjusts fan speed with changes in power supply loading and temperature.
The OG3-FR uses the same rear modules as our other 20-slot frame, allowing a seamless transition from an 8321 frame to the OG3-FR. These rear modules offer a broad selection for a flexible and wide array of interfaces such as BNC, twisted-pair audio, and fiber.
The OG3-FR can accommodate two power supply modules. Adding a second (optional) supply gives the frame full power redundancy. Each power supply contains an independent cooling fan, status LED, and a front-mounted power switch. Optional SNMP support, for large scale monitoring implementation, is also available.
