HD VIDEO, ETHERNET AND SERIAL DATA MULTIPLEXER
The Model 914-HDE motherboard is the core of the 914-X series modular multiplexer system. It can operate as a single card system providing an extremely compact solution for High Definition (HD) video, Gigabit Ethernet and multiple serial data channels. An expansion interface allows for the addition of up to eight (8) 914-X series expansion cards. Optical rates up to 6 GBaud per fiber wavelength reduce optical costs and increase signal density.
The 914-HDE fiber optic multiplexer combines Focal’s expertise in Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and replaces multiple media converters and optical multiplexers reducing size, weight, power and cost.
The 914-HDE supports advanced features, such as: real-time diagnostics over a dedicated RS-232 channel, field-upgradable firmware, and software configurable Ethernet, serial and video ports.
Diagnostic readings may be accessed via an RS-232 serial link in real time by using Focal™ Graphical User Interface (GUI) software, based on the Microsoft® .NET Framework, or by using a customer’s own software configured to read Focal’s serial ASCCII protocol or Modbus ASCCII format.
