Blackmagic Design OGX-FR-C-P Overview
The OGX-FR-C-P is a 2RU high-density openGear® modular frame offering 600 Watts of total power in a high-capacity 20-slot format. It uses the same form factor and DashBoard™ remote control as our other 20-slot frames and supports all openGear compatible cards and rear I/O modules, but offers significantly more available user power. The oGx is designed to meet the demands of today’s most complex IP and hybrid infrastructures, supporting evolving IP and UHD applications.
A new high-power mode allows 23 Watts per slot (460 W user net max). An intelligent fan controller adjusts fan speed with changes in power supply loading and temperature. The single (standard) 600 Watt power supply can fully power a loaded frame, and the addition of a second (optional) supply gives the frame full power redundancy. oGx accommodates 2 front-loaded, hot-swappable power supplies. The split outside location of the power supplies makes installation easy. Each power supply contains an independent cooling fan, status LED, and a front mounted power switch.
In addition to an integrated LCD display that provides frame name, IP address and reports any alarms, the FrameGlow highly-visible programmable RGB LED bar provides “across-the-room” visibilty of any customizable status or frame ID functions, allowing personnel to see frame status/info literally anywhere in the room.
The openGear® 3.0 frame offers optional gigabit Ethernet to every slot within the frame chassis, enhancing communication speed, and connection options to all openGear® cards. The openGear® 3.0 frame provides more communication options and flexibility to openGear® card manufacturers. The 21-port Ethernet switch, built in to the frame’s network control card, virtually future-proofs the openGear® 3.0 platform. (Gigabit Ethernet is only available with the Advanced Network Control option.) SNMP (optionally available) is loaded direct to the frame eliminating the need for any external gateways and runs on a separate software port allowing for simultaneous control from both DashBoard and SNMP clients. This is useful in applications where system wide monitoring is performed using SNMP and real-time control is performed using DashBoard.
