The Tech Square 19” DCS-211 data collection system is compatible with a 1U or 1.5U form factor for fast deployment in existing racks. It features eight isolated digital input (DI) channels with 2.5KVrms optical isolation and input voltage up to 137.5V (nominal voltages of 24V/36V/72V/110V). There are six digital output (DO) channels spread over four DO channels without isolation in a D-sub connector and two isolated DO channels with independently controlled internal integrated relays in a separate D-sub connector.
The DCS-211 uses an Intel Atom® x5-E3930 processor and paired with 4GB DDR3L-1600MHz (upgradable to 8GB). It also has four GbE ports (1x RJ-45, 3x M12 with 2KVrms isolation), two programmable RS-232/422/485 serial ports via front panel DB-9 connectors, two Type A USB connectors (1x 3.0, 1x 2.0), 32GB of built-in eMMC 5.0 storage (64GB optional), one M.2 2280 slot for “M key” SATA SSDs, and space on the front panel for a hot swappable 2.5” SSD or CFast slot.
Rail systems integrators can take advantage of the DCS-211’s three Mini PCIe slots (2x PCIe + USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0), which support full or half size modules with one USIM for each slot. One of the USIM slots is onboard, and two are externally accessible from the front panel beneath a cover. Using the Mini PCIe slots, the DCS-211 can be configured for 3G/4G/GPS/CAN/MVB as well as GNSS. There are four reserved antenna connector cutouts supporting three RP-SMA connectors for cellular and Wi-Fi, and an optional SMA connector for GNSS.
