NEXUS DSP & Controller Card XCI
The serial interfaces of the XCI card support RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, MIDI and Ethernet. The board can be used universally as a control interface between the NEXUS system and external devices, with a variety of common protocols already available on the board. The deep integration of the XCI card into the NEXUS Logic Control macro control allows extremely complex applications and bidirectional interactions between NEXUS and external systems to be implemented.
NEXUS – XCI – The concept:
XCI cards are available in two different versions: as a variant with two outgoing serial interfaces in 4 HP width and in double width with four serial ports accessible from the front. Each board also has one RJ45 Ethernet port, on which the electrical specifications of each individual interface can be configured separately. RS-232, RS-422, RS-485 and MIDI are available, supporting both AES15 and SMPTE/EBU specifications.
Protocols for a variety of external devices and systems are already available. Conversely, the common, large control systems also support the extensively implemented NEXUS protocol and are able to execute all important commands in the NEXUS network and monitor live, online desired parameters such as certain levels, for example.
NEXUS – XCI – Features:
Four independent serial interfaces In the 8TE wide version, the XCI has four independent serial interfaces that are electrically isolated from each other and from the system. R232, R422, R485 and MIDI allow bidirectional communication with the NEXUS system. Which protocol is used can be configured manually for each interface on the printed circuit board's patch panel.
Self-sufficient processor system An integrated Coldfire processor ensures that the computer resources required by the protocols do not affect the NEXUS system.
Buffered supply voltage To bridge brief power failures or to safely terminate write accesses after switching off, the static working memory SRAM is battery-buffered.
Electronic fuses of the interfaces In addition to protecting the module with a fuse, the interfaces are individually fused. When this is activated, the LED associated with the interface goes out.
