Option Cards Overview

The table below lists all SecureSync option cards available at the time of publication of this document, sorted by their function.

The table column (see table below) Web UI Name refers to the names under which the cards installed in a SecureSync unit are listed in the INTERFACES > OPTION CARDS drop-down menu.

Detailed specifications and configuration assistance for every card can be found in the APPENDIX. To quickly access the APPENDIX topic for your option card(s), you may use the hyperlinks in table Option cards listed by their ID number.

Note: * Every option card has a unique 2-digit ID number located on its cover plate, and in the center column of the table below. The complete Spectracom Part Number for option cards is 1204-xx (e.g., 1204-18).
