7700PTX

Universal Protocol Translator

  • VistaLINK® enabled

The 7700PTX Universal Protocol Translator module provides the ability for Evertz® VistaLINK® and MVP® software to interface directly to third party UMD devices and routers.

The 7700PTX communicates with the router and UMD protocols either via one of four serial ports or using a built in Ethernet port. All ports - both serial and Ethernet - are bi-directional allowing the device complete flexibility for communication.

Features
  • Four serial ports RS-232/RS-422 selectable
  • GPI/GPO easily accessed through pin-headers (2x6 Phoenix Terminal Blocks) on rear plate
  • Modular, conveniently fits into 7800FR 3RU frame
  • Module status LED and 20 GPI LEDs for simple GPI input diagnostics only for PTX-MVP)
  • Frame status trigger
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring and control via SNMP (using VistaLINK® PRO) when installed in 7800FR frame - Frame Controller built-in
