Router

NEXUS STAR is designed as a 19" mainframe for router boards and contains the backplane (TDM bus), the controller boards, and power-supply units. Redundant power-supply units are available optionally. Interface boards are implemented as requested.

Configuration

  • 19" mainframe (flightcase or mounting racks on request)
  • 1 front-panel row (6 units in height)
  • RCX controller board and routing matrix
  • 2 to 4 backplane power-supply units (including up to 2 redundancy units), system-specific configuration
  • RFOC and RMF I/O boards as requested
  • Slot grid: 4 HP (20.32 mm)
  • 21 slots available (16 for I/O-board)

Power-supply Units

  • Input-voltage range: 90 to 264 VAC
  • Line frequency: 47 to 63 Hz
  • Power consumption: 100 W (max.) per unit

Dimensions

  • Height: approx. 265 mm (6 units)
  • Width: approx. 482.6 mm/19"; front-panel area: 84 HP
  • Depth: approx. 470 mm including ports (without handles)

Reliability

  • Up to four extra redundant power-supply units can be installed
  • Hot-swap capability
  • Continuous execution of internal test routines
  • Uninterrupted signal re-routing in case of malfunctions
  • Redundant implementation of controller and routing boards, redundant bus system

Control Computer

NEXUS systems are normally shipped without a control computer. Any standard Windows PC can be used. A control computer must be equipped with a free serial, Ethernet, or USB port for NEXUS-system connection. The control software is optimised for high operating speeds, so a standard PC running Windows XP can be used.

XPSU Power-supply Unit

  • Wide-range unit supplying all components
  • Up to four power supply units connectable to a router (including redundant units)
  • Space-saving back panel installation
