GP2 - 4-Port Gigabit SFP PHY Line Card

The GP2 is a 3U Gigabit Ethernet PHY line card implemented as a CompactPCI Serial board. It occupies one peripheral slot using a 4 HP front panel with four Gigabit Ethernet ports on SFP cages.

The GP2 is designed to work in combination with the G101 CompactPCI Serial managed industrial Ethernet switch.

The GP2 provides four cages for 100BASE-FX, 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-LX and 1000BASE-ZX SFP modules. Each interface supports a data transfer rate of 1 Gbit/s max, and provides two LEDs to indicate the link and activity status.

The GP2 operates with a primary voltage supply of +12 V, which is provided via the rear CompactPCI serial connector. All additional required voltages are generated onboard. It is fully compliant with the EN 50155 railway standard, qualified for a -40 to +85°C operation temperature and ready for coating.
