Moog Components Group has introduced an expandable Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fibre-optic multiplexer for use in remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), video systems and advanced sonar systems, for example.

The Focal 907-GEM multiplexer provides four independent and switchless 10/100/1,000Mbps Ethernet links, as well as expansion capability through a PC/104 connector.

The multiplexer features a low-latency switchless design, which meets requirements for the use of real-time Ethernet for critical control systems and digital video.

It is claimed to reduce size and total system cost when compared with standard media converter solutions, as it replaces four separate Ethernet media converters with a single board and a single fibre link.

In addition, support for non-Ethernet signals via expansion cards allows for expandable and reconfigurable multiplexer solutions.

The 907-GEM can be stacked with up to six standard Model 907 expansion cards to add up to 48 additional data channels, including serial formats (RS-232/485), analogue signals (sonar, ADC/DAC and audio), Canbus and other standard protocols.

It supports a range of optical options, including CWDM wavelengths and multimode configurations.

As with the 907+ video/data multiplexer, the 907-GEM includes integrated diagnostics that are compatible with the Focal diagnostic interface card (907-DIAG-E) and graphical user interface (GUI) software for system health monitoring.

The multiplexer offers a modular fibre-optic telemetry solution that is suitable for Ethernet-intensive applications.
