A standard feature of the oGx’s advanced network controller, DataSafe is your safeguard against downtime. Whenever an openGear module is replaced, this ingenious feature performs an automatic restoration of all settings, thanks to the parameters stored on the frame’s local network card. Considering some cards can contain over 100 parameters, from audio channel delays to video proc levels, DataSafe eliminates guesswork and tedious manual reconfiguration. You can toggle DataSafe on or off for individual slots via the frame’s network controller card using DashBoard. Plus, its smart design ensures parameter restoration only when a compatible replacement product is detected.

oGx’s advanced network controller may optionally be equipped with SNMP.  This direct support means there is no need for any external gateways.  Additionally, SNMP runs on a separate software port allowing for simultaneous control from both DashBoard and SNMP clients. This is especially useful in applications, for example, where system wide monitoring is performed using SNMP and real-time control is performed using DashBoard.

Frame controllers provide a single point of Ethernet access to communicate with DashBoard-capable openGear modules in an oGx frame, as well as monitor and control the frame itself. As with other cards in the frame, the frame controller is a hot-swappable card/module.

Basic openGear Controller
Provides a 10/100 Ethernet connection for a single DashBoard client.
Compatible with most cards but ideal for ones with limited sets of controls and monitoring parameters such as distribution and switching products.
An affordable option, perfect for “set-and-forget” scenarios like bulk distribution amplifiers.
Advanced openGear Controller
Features GigE connectivity for both external networks and in-frame cards.
Supports multiple DashBoard client connections concurrently.
Offers DataSafe and optional SNMP functionalities.
Essential for advanced openGear cards with extensive controls, including the Gator series, MC1-UHD, and AMX-8952 audio products.
