High Channel Count Systems
A high channel count dynamic measurement system can be configured with multiple Spider-81 or Spider-80X front-ends. The diagram below shows a typical high channel count configuration based on multiple Spider-80X modules and Spider-81 front-ends.
In this picture, three Spider-81 front-ends and four Spider-80X front-ends are used to create a high channel count dynamic measurement system. The Ethernet port of each Spider is connected to one of the Ethernet ports on the Spider-HUB. One of Ethernet ports on Spider-HUB is connected to the PC.
A remaining Ethernet port on the Spider-HUB can be connected to the “next cluster” or configuration so the channel count can be further expanded.
