Although the OP7000V2 comes pre-installed with all purchased I/O boards, in the course of your project, you may need to install additional conditioning I/O or FPGA boards in the OP7000V2 chassis.

Before installing the board, please read carefully the instructions below.

Preparation

Yellow

Odd-numbered slots can accept OP7220 carrier boards, OP7353 digital monitoring boards and FPGA boards (to a maximum of eight boards).

When OP7220 or FPGA boards are used, the next (even-numbered) slot on the right cannot be used.

BlackEven-numbered slots. Only OP7353 digital monitoring boards can be installed for a maximum of eight boards.
Red

Three central slots. Reserved for the Primary card and its piggy-back mezzanine card in the front, and the OP7461 PCIe communication and OP7832 synchronization cards in the back.


The position of the cards in the three central slots, in the front and in the back, is fixed and must be strictly followed. Refer to the schematic below to install the cards in the proper slots.

Do NOT install I/O cards in these slots.


For analog or digital I/Os, the guidelines below will help you select the proper combination of cards and slots:

Analog I/Os

In order to drive I/O lines in analog input or analog output mode:

The figure below gives a schematic representation of typical analog I/O configurations, as seen from the top of the OP7000V2 chassis



Note: The previous OP7000 chassis supported some other conditioning modules for analog input and output, such as the OP7818, OP7819, etc. Please contact your sales or support representative to check for compatibility or replacement cards before using such modules in the OP7000V2.


Digital I/Os

In order to drive I/O lines in digital input or digital output mode,

OP7816 - 2

OP7000 Rear Opto-Isolated Digital Input: 16-Din DB37 connector

OP7817 - 2

OP7000 Rear Opto-Isolated 16-Dout, Push-Pull 5V to 30V, DB37 connector

OP7820

OP7000 Rear 8TX and 8RX DC to 50 MBd Fiber Optic link, 650nm

OP7821

OP7000_Rear_16Dout_SSR_250V_200mA (Normally Open Relay)

OP7822

OP7000_Back_6TX_6RX_Fiber_Optic_ link_820nm

OP7823

OP7000 Rear 16RX DC to 50 MBd Fiber Optic link, 650nm

OP7824

OP7000 Rear_16TX_DC_to_50_MBd_Fiber_ Optic_link_650nm



NOTE:

If the slot is an even-numbered slot, verify that there is no analog card in the odd-numbered slot next to it.

This verification needs to be done for the slot with the lower number, since the following two scenarios produce two different outcomes:

  • Slot 2 = Digital, Slot 3 = Analog: OK.
  • Slot 4 = Digital, Slot 3 = Analog: ERROR.



The figure below gives a schematic representation of these typical constraints for digital I/O configurations, as seen from the top of the OP7000V2 chassis




 Some other digital I/O cards with BNC connectors have been obsoleted. Please contact your sales or support representative to check for compatibility or replacement cards before using such modules in the OP7000V2.


Installing the New Board



The system must be powered down before changing boards. Failure to do so may damage the equipment.

Use anti-static wrist straps whenever handling any electronic device provided by OPAL-RT. Damage resulting from electrostatic charges is not covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
