MEN: CompactPCI serial diagnostic board with front display
The G233 is a 3U CompactPCI serial card with a 3.12" OLED display on the front, which enables the immediate display of diagnostics status and error messages. The card is connected via a backplane Ethernet interface to a web server on the main CPU. The I/O card provides an easy-to-use, interactive diagnostic interface that helps maintenance personnel during troubleshooting, or performing routine service checks.
The displayed data is controlled by HTML files. Two control buttons at the front panel can be used for user interactions, such as scrolling or setup. In addition, eight programmable LEDs are available for user-defined functions. Thus, any status or fault message visible to the main CPU can be sent to the G233 and shown on the display or represented by the LEDs. The G233 is designed for use in harsh and mobile environments with an operating temperature of -40 to +85°C, and is coated to protect against external influences.
