FarSync T4Ee – advanced PCIe synchronous / asynchronous card

The FarSync T4Ee is a highly flexible PCIe communications card featuring 4 high speed synchronous / asynchronous / bisynchronous ports with NRZ, NRZI, Manchester Encoding, Conditioned Di-Phase, FM0 and FM1 line signal encoding, fully flexible clocking and a full range of interface signals for RS530, RS449, RS232, RS485 (2 and 4 wire), V.35 and X.21.

T4Ee-300x244At the centre of the card design is a FarSite Communication Controller, a high flexible CPLD that allows the extended range of communications facilities to be supported plus having the capability for further modes of operation to be added, including special or unusual protocols on a custom design basis. Line termination can be software configured line by line.

There is a very wide range of internal clock speeds that can be generated, up to 10 Mbits/s with a total card bandwidth of 64Mbits/s plus the capability for custom clock speeds to be supported through simple software configuration. The 5 clock generators on board permit very flexible routing of clocks between ports including multiplication or division of clocks speed while maintaining clock phase and feeding clocks from one port to other ports.

The card is the 4 port big brother for the 2 port FarSync T2Ee.

FarLinX Connect Mini – A HDLC to TCP Converter and HDLC over TCP Bridge

The FarLinX Connect Mini is a compact multi mode HDLC bridging appliance. It allows HDLC lines to be bridged securely across the Internet or other /IP networks and also enables HDLC connection data to be adapted to operate over a TCP connection.

All this is easy to securely manage from your browser. There are also daily activity logs with a selectable level of detail, automatically archived on a daily basis. The SNMP support provides alerts for numerous different conditions including critical events such as line down and line up. A line monitor supplied permits analysis of the HDLC line.

Key Features

  • FMG_Front_300x120TCP to HDLC conversion with the route created statically or dynamically, handles a variety of modes including: character streaming and frame length defined
    HDLC ? Internet ? HDLC bridging including static or dynamic routing
  • LAN accessible HDLC line as a sharable remotely manageable resource
  • Choice of HDLC network interface connections: RS232 (V.24), V.35, RS422, RS530, RS449, X.21, RS485
  • HDLC line speeds up to 1Mbps and over 1,200 frames per second each way
  • Line Monitor to view HDLC traffic for easy network problem diagnosis
  • Optional support for authentication and data security using IPSEC over TCP
  • IP and IPv6 support
  • Browser graphical configuration, SNMP alerts for critical events and activity logging
  • Real time display of current connections, line performance, errors, connections and much more
  • Small rugged low profile all metal case, low power consumption

Typical Applications

  • Transparently bridge HDLC type lines over the Internet, reducing line rental costs
  • Allow TCP/IP access to a HDLC line where the HDLC line data is provided over the TCP connection
  • LAN accessible and sharable HDLC port resource
