High Power, High Speed, and Unsurpassed Flexibility.

openGear® 3.0 is the evolution of the industry's first and only open hardware and software platform. The next generation openGear® frame, OG3-FR combines function, flexibility and power with advanced features like high powered 450 watt redundant power supplies, Gigabit Ethernet access to every card slot, 20 openGear® card slots, dedicated 21st and 22nd card slots for network control and internal reference distribution, and a front LCD display for easy frame, IP address and fault identification.

Key Features:

  • 450W Power Supply with Integral Cooling
  • Gigabet Ethernet Access to Every Card Slot
  • 20 openGear® Card Slots
  • Front LCD Display

Modular Frame Architecture

The OG3-FR offers the flexibility of independent rear modules for connectivity to a wide array of interfaces such as BNC, twisted-pair audio, and fiber. The independent rear modules are available in different I/O configurations for select cards, including high density split rear modules allowing up to 20 independent openGear® cards in the OG3 frame.

Robust Power Supplies

The OG3-FR can accommodate 2 front-loaded PS-OG3 power supplies. The split outside location of the power supplies makes installation a breeze when utilizing an alternate phase power source. A single 450 watt supply can fully power a loaded frame, and the addition of a second (optional) supply gives the frame full power redundancy. Each power supply contains an independent cooling fan, status LED, and a frontmounted power switch.


The frame has been designed with an advanced cooling architecture with increased ventilation. Front door mounted cooling fans provide forced air cooling to all cards with front to back cooling. An intelligent fan controller adjusts fan speed with changes in power supply loading and temperature. The front door assembly can be removed without tools for quick and easy maintenance.


The OG3-FR comes standard with Ethernet connectivity for basic configuration and monitoring of openGear® cards through the DashBoard control system. An optional advanced networking card, the MFC-8322-N, adds an on-board Gigabit Ethernet switch, with GigE access to each of the 20 processing card slots. The advanced networking control also allows multiple DashBoard connections and adds advanced features such as DataSafeand optional SNMP.
