OP4510 V2 Standard Configuration

Rear interface


A: DB37 connectors for digital or analog inputs and outputs.

B: In the standard OP4510 V2 standard configuration, this section contains a blank plate, however, several options are available. See OP4510 V2 I/O Expansion Options for detailed information on available configuration options.

C: Standard computer connectors (left to right): Serial (COM) port, IPMI, USB ports*, network ports**, monitor (VGA).

USB ports are configured to detect keyboard only. All other USB connected devices are not compatible with this unit.


Only one network port is required for network connection. The image below shows the default Ethernet port.

Default Ethernet port

D: Connector availability depends on the expansion option (if any) selected This default configuration contains a blank plate in this section. See OP4510 V2 PCIe Options for details.

OP4510 V2 I/O Expansion Options 

The OP4510 V2 comes with an RS-422 Connector Kit (OP5969-1) factory installed by default.

The optional Fiber-Optic Connector Kit (OP5969-2) can also be installed. It will replace the default connector kit, since only ONE of these connector kits can be installed in an OP4510 V2 at a time.

The optional connector kit must be selected at the time of purchase and factory-installed.

If the OP3811 or the OP3812 GPS Synchronization Connectors PCIe I/O cards are ordered, none of the following expansion options can be installed because the I/O cards also require a connector plate to be installed in the same location.

(OP5969-1)

OP4510 V2-1 RS422 Connectors

DEFAULT connector kit installed
The DB9 connectors for RS422 signals are typically used to transmit differential encoder inputs and outputs. Refer to the OP5969-1 User Manual for specifications and pin assignment.

Fiber-Optic Connector kit
(OP5969-2)

OP4510 V2-2 Fiber Optic Connectors

Optional connector kit
Fiber-optic connector kit provides 6 RX and 6 TX channels.
These channels can be used as digital I/Os or for low-speed communication protocols.
The ORION protocol, developed by OPAL-RT, is compatible with these channels and available in custom bitstreams. Refer to the OP5969-2 User Manual for specifications and pin assignment.

OP4510 V2 PCIe Options

There are several PCIe options available for the OP4510 V2.

Only ONE of the I/O cards may be installed in an OP4510 V2 at a time.

The PCIe optional I/O card must be selected at the time of purchase and factory-installed.


OP5451
Copper cable

Passive/active PCIe expansion with standard PCIe iPass x4 connector interface. This option is used to connect the OP4510 V2 to an OPAL-RT expansion I/O chassis. The option comes as a kit, including a copper cable.

OP3411

OP3411

CANbus protocol expansion board with a CANbus standard 25-pin connector interface.

OP3811

PCIe I/O Card

OP3811

Connector plate

OP4510 V2-T GPS Synchronization Connectors

The GPS time synchronization (IEEE 1588) with RJ45 connector interface comes in 2 parts: the PCIe card and the connector plate with an external synchronization input connector and fiber-optic synchronization output.

If this option is selected, none of the I/O Expansion Options (OP5969-1, OP5969-2) could be installed because the connector plate needs to be installed at the same place.



OP3812

PCIe I/O Card

OP3812

Connector plate

OP4510 V2-T GPS Synchronization Connectors

GPS time synchronization (IEEE 1588) with SFP connector interface comes in 2 parts: the PCIe card and the connector plate with an external synchronization input connector and fiber-optic synchronization output.

If this option is purchased, none of the I/O Expansion Options (OP5969-1, OP5969-2) could be installed because the connector plate needs to be installed at the same place.

OP3821

OP3821_Ethernet_Backplate

Dual-port PCIe x1 Gigabit Ethernet interface.
