When it was launched, the Optocore DD32 quickly found favour as an AES/EBU conversion standard. ‘With a couple of thousand of the DD32E I/O network converters now serving some of the most demanding installations around the world, it was time to look at how we could improve this device,’ says Optocore Sales and Marketing Director, Tine Helme. ‘The DD32R meets the challenge head on, offering all the features of the DD32E plus many new ones.’

Careful design, streamlined production and use of the latest technologies mean a 30 per cent reduction in cost as well as a reduced power consumption of 40 per cent. ‘We have reduced power consumption to 14W,’ says Helme. ‘Compare this to a computer infrastructure, with 1G and 10Gb switches and imagine how many thousands of power plants could be spared if they used our equipment.’

The new R Series device also provides 100 per cent greater fibre bandwidth, offering 2GBit operation, for a1,024 input channels per ring (plus unlimited number of output channels). This makes single rings even more powerful and stacked rings for an unlimited number of inputs even easier to implement. The DD32R includes a full 100MBit Virtual Ethernet Switch over the entire network. A Virtual Ethernet Switch also provides redundancy without the need for special programming.

Via the SANE port, a network designer is able to add analogue channels, further Ethernet and Madi devices to the network. Finally all R Series devices will operate down to -20°C and feature 50µ hard gold-plated connectors for premium quality and long life.
