The 907-DIAG-E card provides access to real-time diagnostic information from many of the Moog Focal Model 907 multiplexers, media converters and expansion cards. Typically mounted on top of a console stack, the 907-DIAG-E reads diagnostic values from both console and remote cards polled via the 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port. With programmable and switch configured IP addresses available, multiple diagnostics cards can be connected to the same network. In addition, a 20-pin header may be programmed to drive external LEDs as various status indicators, such as fault conditions, alarms, and optical link parameters.
Diagnostic information is polled from both optical transceivers (SFPs) and cards themselves. Transceiver data includes transmit and receive optical powers, temperature, laser bias current and power voltage. Card specific data includes card identifier, serial number firmware version and port connectivity status.
Diagnostic readings may be accessed by using Focal Graphical User Interface (GUI) software, based on the Microsoft® .NET Framework, or by using a customer’s own software based on the Focal open communications protocol. A .NET library is also available to simplify the development of user GUI software.
The 907-DIAG-E card is a part of Moog Focal’s unified condition monitoring products that have been developed to help users predict maintenance intervals and remotely monitor the condition of their installed equipment.
