IMACS 200:  Compact Integrated Multiple Access Communication Server

Overview

The concept of an integrated one box solution for advanced voice and data applications began with the introduction of the IMACS. The IMACS 200 carries on that tradition with an integrated solution optimized for smaller port size applications that the IMACS could not economically address. An array of the most popular interfaces and features from the IMACS has been bundled into a small 2U chassis providing the ultimate in ease of installation.

Reliable communications are vital to any organization. The IMACS 200 addresses this need while providing compact size, low cost, and a high level of voice and data integration. This makes it an ideal choice for providing a variety of services to small end points and remote locations in any modern telecommunications network.

Optimized for the unique needs of electric utilities, the IMACS 200 system supports a wide range of specialty traffic, including teleprotection (EIA-232 and IEEE C37.94 optical interface to protection relays), SCADA, surveillance video, substation automation and alarms, radio, Ethernet and telephony.

In power substations, one of the biggest issues an access system must deal with is EMI from all the high voltage power equipment that is co-located. The IMACS-200 Optical WAN (OWAN) eliminates this problem by transporting the WAN facilities over DS1/E1 equivalent optical fibers. The OWAN can work up to 20 kilometers over a single mode, 1320nm, bi-directional optical port.

The IMACS 200 system offers a powerful array of integrated network diagnostic and fault isolation capabilities. These include Bit Error Rate Testers, test tone and signaling state generation, digital and analog loop back-support, and remote configuration and control. IMACS 200 meets stringent standards criteria, such as IEEE 1613, RoHS, and CE, which means you can deploy it anywhere in your network.
