Improving Time-to-Market Starts by Speeding up I/O Connectivity

Modifying simulator configuration is now easier than ever, thanks to the practical design of the OP4200 chassis. The chassis enables users to quickly reconfigure I/Os, including signal format and conditioning, to fit their immediate needs. The convenient plug-and-play cassettes enable users to easily remove, replace or add modules to the system chassis, without requiring further software configuration. Each cassette contains the same I/O technology found across the OPAL-RT product line, guaranteeing optimum performance.

I/O Cassettes for Flexible Configuration

OP4200 supports four convenient swappable I/O cassettes with hot plug protection, supporting up to 128 I/O channels. Standard cassettes are available with 32 digital inputs, 32 digital outputs, together with 16 analog input and 16 analog output channels. Each cassette comes with the option of choosing the connector class, which includes DB37, screw terminal, SMA and fiber optic transceiver connectors.
