The Link Electronics OG3-FR-CNS openGear 3.0 Frame with Cooling, GigE Network Control, and SNMP, combines function, flexibility, and power. Its advanced features include a high-powered 450W redundant power supply, 20 openGear card slots, dedicated 21st and 22nd card slots for network control and internal reference distribution, and a front LCD display for easy frame, IP address and fault identification.

The OG3-FR-CNS offers the flexibility of independent rear modules for connectivity to a wide array of interfaces, such as BNC, twisted-pair audio, and fiber. The independent rear modules are available in different I/O configurations for select cards, including high-density split rear modules allowing up to 20 independent openGear cards in the OG3 frame.

The OG3-FR-CNS can accommodatetwo front-loaded PS-OG3 power supplies (one included). The split outside location of the power supplies makes installation easy when utilizing an alternate phase power source. A single 450W supply can fully power a loaded frame, and the addition of a second (optional) supply gives the frame full power redundancy. Each power supply contains an independent cooling fan, status LED, and a front-mounted power switch.

The OG3-FR frame has an advanced cooling architecture with increased ventilation. Front door-mounted cooling fans provide forced air cooling to all cards with front to back airflow. An intelligent fan controller adjusts fan speed with changes in power supply loading and temperature. The front door assembly can be removed without tools for quick and easy maintenance.
The OG3-FR comes standard with Ethernet connectivity for basic configuration and monitoring of openGear cards through the DashBoard control system. It also supports advanced networking card, the MFC-8322-N, which adds an on-board gigabit Ethernet switch, with GigE access to each of the 20 processing card slots. The advanced networking control also allows multiple DashBoard connections and adds advanced features, such as DataSafe and optional SNMP.
Gigabit Ethernet
The openGear 3.0 frame offers gigabit Ethernet to every slot within the OG3-FR chassis, enhancing communication speed and connection options to all openGear cards. The openGear 3.0 frame provides more communication options and flexibility to openGear card manufacturers; ultimately enhancing the openGear platform and experience. The 21-port Ethernet switch, built into the frame's network control card, future-proofs the openGear 3.0 platform for users and openGear partners for years to come.
openGear supports SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) offering an industry standard interface for system-wide monitoring applications. SNMP is loaded directly to the frame, eliminating the need for any external gateways, and runs on a separate software port allowing for simultaneous control from both DashBoard and SNMP clients. This is useful in applications where system-wide monitoring is performed using SNMP and real-time control is performed using DashBoard.
DataSafe dramatically reduces downtime when failed modules are swapped out. All module parameters are stored on the local frame network card and automatically restored when a hot-swap is performed. With some cards reaching well over 100 parameters, including audio channel delays and video proc level, DataSafe ensures a proper reconfiguration of replacement cards without the hassle of trying to remember previous settings. DataSafe can be enabled or disabled on a per slot basis through the frame's network controller card. DataSafe's intelligent design will only restore parameters when it detects a compatible replacement product.
