The GTNETx2 card is the latest generation of the Gigabit Transceiver Network Interface card (GTNET). It features significant performance enhancements over the previous version:
- Capable of operating 2 network protocols simultaneously
- Runs 5 to 10 times faster than the previous GTNET card
- Firmware upgrades directly through RSCAD interface
The GTNETx2 comes loaded with the newly developed Socket protocol, as well as one other protocol of the user’s choice. Socket is used to interface with external software and physical equipment over a Local or Wide Area Network connection using TCP or UDP sockets. The communication is bidirectional and asynchronous. Socket is capable of sending up to 300 data points per packet, with each point defined over 4 bytes. The data transmitted can be of either integer or floating-point (IEEE 754) type.
Users who participate in the extended hardware warranty program are encouraged to upgrade their GTNET cards under the RTDS Technologies hardware exchange program. Each GTNET card can be exchanged for one GTNETx2 card at a 50% price reduction.
