CompactPCI serial diagnostic board from MEN has front display

MEN extends its range of Compact PCI serial peripheral cards, with the G233. The card allows a simple integration of an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display on the front of a system for easier maintenance.

The G233 is a 3U CompactPCI serial card with a 3.12-inch OLED display on the front. This, says MEN, 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 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 set up. In addition, eight programmable LEDs are available for user-defined functions. 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 and has a specified operating temperature of -40 to +85 degree C. It is also coated to protect against external influences, adds MEN.

The OLED mono-chrome display measure 256 x 64 pixels.
