Model 9200-3000 RS-232 Input Conversion Distribution Modules

The GDP Model 9200-3000 series RS-232 Input Distribution and Conversion Modules accept and convert RS-232 level input signals and provide one or more copies of these signals at various signal levels while simultaneously providing these signals to the buses on the backplane for mass distribution. The 3000 series modules are pluggable and hot-swappable. Refer to figure 1 on the next page for a sample block diagram of the Model 9200-2000 series modules.

The Model 9200-3000 series modules are designed to operate in the GDP Model 9200 Conversion and Distribution chassis. The Model 9200 is a modular product that is scalable and can be user configured to convert and/or distribute a large selection of data channels. These units are designed to be a cost-effective and flexible solution to a wide range of signal conversion and distribution applications.

The 2U 19” rackmount unit can hold up to 16 various single-height modules, each with the ability to accept and properly terminate a variety of signal types and then convert these signals to other industry standards. The chassis also provides a variety of global and daisy-chain buses so that signals can be received by one module and then sent to other modules in the chassis to address signal distribution applications. This equipment incorporates the latest trends in high speed interconnect technologies, next generation processors, and improved reliability, availability and serviceability.
