G211 - Quad Gigabit Ethernet Interface Board, RJ45 or M12-A

Quad Gigabit Ethernet Board

The G211 quad Ethernet interface is a rugged single Eurocard CompactPCI Serial peripheral board. It can be used in combination with a CompactPCI Serial or CompactPCI PlusIO CPU board in a CompactPCI Serial or hybrid system.

Flexible Front Connectors

It provides four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces at the front panel which can be accessed either on four RJ45 or four A-coded M12 connectors making it especially suited for applications in harsh environments.

All four interfaces are controlled by one Ethernet controller which is connected to the backplane via a x4 PCI Express link and supports the IEEE 802.3x standard. Each interface supports a data transfer rate of 1Gbit/s, even if all interfaces are used simultaneously. Two LEDs show the link and activity status of every interface.

Rugged Environments

The G211 is designed for extended operating temperature and prepared for conformal coating for use in harsh and mobile environments.
