ETCLink Support Limitations
There has been some confusion lately regarding the various ETCLink support limitations.
Here is the definitive yardstick by which your designs should be measured.
- 20 racks in a Sensor system: Starting with v3.0 software, CEMs only support up to 20 racks on an ETCLink system. Systems that require more racks will have to be split and will run 2 configurations. If feedback to a console is required, and you are over the 20 rack limit, then move the system over to a WYSILink computer with Net2 4 port nodes.
- 12 racks on a node: Current software only supports 12 CEMs on a Net2 4 port node. If more racks are to be online, then provide more nodes. This also means that each 12 rack or less system will require its own configuration.For a brief example, a 25 rack system will require 3 configurations, 3 nodes, a network, and a WYSILink computer.These are the current guidelines and more details will follow when new Net2 software is released.
