NEXUS Star Components
The RCX card is the central unit in the NEXUS Star Router. It manages the device and provides the internal matrix with 4,096 x 4,096 crosspoints. External control systems can be connected to the NEXUS network via various interfaces. The RCX card can be redundantly equipped, which is what the safety concept of the NEXUS system is all about.
The RFOC card is the counterpart to the XFOC network cards in NEXUS base devices. Standard SFP modules allow the very flexible integration of the Star Router into NEXUS networks of any topology. Due to the high switching capacity of the Star Routers, RFOC cards can be used to form a star point in the network, via which many basic devices can be connected to each other centrally.
The RMF MADI card is the consistent scaling of the XMF MADI card for NEXUS base devices. As a router card, it allows up to four MADI universes to be integrated into a NEXUS network. The four ports, both BNC and SFP ports for LC-duplex fiber optics, are connected directly to the matrix of the Star Router and can be routed from there system-wide.
The RSYNC board supports special applications that require a larger number of different sync inputs and/or outputs. Among them is a BNC input for video genlock or blackburst, which supports both bi-level and tri-level sync.
The RMC card is the heart of every AURUS or CRESCENDO mixer. It handles every single operation, manages the mixer projects and controls the entire data exchange between the console interface, the NEXUS network and the DSP cards assigned to the console. Up to two mixing console surfaces can be connected to one RMC card. In addition, there are connections for time code, MIDI and other controls such as RAS.
The RMCQ card is the heart of the new AVATUS IP mixing consoles from Stage Tec. It handles every single operation, manages the mixer projects and controls the entire data exchange between the console interface, the NEXUS network and the DSP cards assigned to the console.
The RMD cards form the scalable DSP of the first generation for Stage Tec's large digital mixing consoles of the AURUS and CRESCENDO families. As development progressed, they were replaced by the RMDQ card generation.
With the RIF67 card it is possible to connect up to eight AoIP networks to a NEXUS system. AES67 and Ravenna are supported. The RIF67 cards are available in four versions: with 2, 4, 6 or 8 active ports. A total of 256 audio channels can be output in IP streams. Depending on the expansion level of the board, 8 channels (RIF67-1) down to 2 channels (RIF67-4) can be bundled per stream.
