KEYFACTS:

  • Supports any Optocore system – standalone Optocore, Digico opto links or ProGrid by Clear-Com
  • Closes the Optocore loop automatically when active device is switched on/off, added or disconnected
  • PLUG-AND-PLAY
  • Up to 20 x dual LINK duplex Ports for Optocore protocol connection
  • Two independent AutoRouters Main and Backup
  • OptoSplitter for Optical Fiber Operations
  • No fan
  • Dual power supply with automatic switchover
  • 3x 2RU Chassis

Overview Redundant AutoRouter:

Optocore Redundant AutoRouter is compatible with Optocore, ProGrid and DiGiCo fiber loops, creating a redundant ‘star’ out of the ring topology. It works with other well known protocols based on Ring topology as AVID AVB and Yamaha TWINLANe

It can be used in the installation and live sound market, where mixed ring/star or star topology is more desirable due to a star based fibre cable layout.

Optocore Redundant AutoRouter automatically discovers mobile devices and adds them to the Optocore loop. When mobile device is disconnected or powered down, AutoRouter automatically closes the loop with the remaining devices. It always discovers and switches the links automatically to establish redundancy, without any user action – there is no need to control or change fiber patching by user.

All connections from any external equipment is connected to OptoSplitter. This splits the fiber signal into two and distributes it to both the main and backup AutoRouter. Both routers communicate leaving only one active at a time and automatically switching to the backup router when the active one is absent.
