Conforming fully with FlexRay™ specifications the FR repeater facilitates gross transmission rates up to 10 Mbps. It can be used to extend a bus (by 24 m per FlexRay™ repeater), to increase the number of stations as well as to link different bus topologies. To substantially eliminate disturbances on the bus line the FlexRay™ repeater regenerates the transmission signals and transmits them anew. The FlexRay™ repeater provides electrical isolation between the two connected FlexRay™ bus segments. The correct power supply is indicated visually via integrated status LEDs.
In line with specifications up to two FlexRay™ repeaters can be joined in series. FlexRay™ repeaters can be connected at any time to a FlexRay™ cluster by means of a short spur line. For this purpose a prefabricated cable assembly that also feeds the power supply is available as an accessory.
