Model 2350A-M6 / 2350A-M12 Telemetry Gateway Six/Twelve Channel TM (PCM) over IP

The Model 2350A Telemetry Gateway provides the necessary signal processing to pass telemetry data either to or from an Ethernet network. User programmability permits the unit to function as a Telemetry-to-Ethernet converter (packetizer) or as an Ethernet-to-Telemetry converter (de-packetizer). Each channel is individually configurable as either a packetizer or a de-packetizer.

The MD2350A is available in 6 and 12 channel configurations. Each channel accepts PCM data streams with associated coherent clocks. PCM data is captured and packetized into Ethernet packets along with header information. Packet size and buffering can be user selected or automatically controlled to minimize latency. The remote unit receives the Ethernet packets from the network and de-packetizes the PCM data. Using the statistics provided by the packetizer, the de-packetizer reconstructs the original PCM data stream and coherent clock. Input PCM data streams may be independent in content and rate. Up to 12 Channels are provided in the 1U Chassis.
In a typical application, the inputs to the packetizer are received from PCM sources such as bit synchronizers connected to telemetry receivers. (Optionally, internal bit synchronizers are available.) The data is then transported over the network to a remote unit. The de-packetizer function in the remote unit reconstructs the output clock and PCM data which can be directly connected to a PCM frame synchronizer / decommutator. Alternatively, the data can be sent over the networks to a remote processing unit. Frame synchronization and packet alignment in the packetizer simplify processing by a downstream software decommutator.

(*) Optional Feature

Digital Input Bit Synchronizer Option: This option recovers a clock from a digital data input for those applications where a synchronous clock is not available.

Frame Synchronizer Option: Frame synchronize to the incoming PCM format. Align the start of each minor frame to the start of a network packet. This feature supports simplified software decommutation directly from the Ethernet.

IRIG 106 Chapter 10 Compatible Output Option: The module can be optionally configured to output the PCM data onto Ethernet in Chapter 10 compatible packets (Packed mode or Throughput mode). These packets can then be decommutated, processed and displayed by a variety of standard Chapter 10 compatible software packages. Note that when used in Chapter 10 mode data can not be transported to a second 2350 for de-packetization. This mode is for software decommutation of the Chapter 10 data

Small Form Pluggable (SFP) Interface Option: Allows the user to select the appropriate fiber transceiver for the required optical reach over various fiber types. SFP modules may be provided by the user or contact GDP for module options.
