Suggested Equipment for your system

To build your system, you will need different types of equipment. We tried a lot of equipment for Argos VR Systems so we are recommending several ones of them. You don’t have to buy the gear especially, it is just gear we tested and know it works.

The structure
For the structure, we used standard PVC (grey) pipe used for water. They are 32mm and you can find them everywhere. In the US, the pipes are 31.75mm and you will have 3d files ready for printing adapted.

USB Hub

 

Advice: You need to let the hub in use for 3 or 4 days to see if it really works and does not encounter any problem. 1 out of 10 of our hubs stopped working after 2-3 days.

Ethernet Switch/Hub

Because our master is also a DHCP server and manages all the network, please use only ethernet switches or hubs, and please do not use manageable switches or routers !

Because our own DHCP server is optimized for dealing with a lot of connections at the same time and it communicates with the other threads on the master, it gives a reliable solution to manage up to 2560 slaves.

The purpose of routers is to optimize and filter the traffic on the network. That’s also the case of manageable switches. Because we are using hyperthreading and very small packets, and the exchanges by a small message technology are very fast, the router could filter them and make the system instable. Then, using routers and manageable switches would at least make the system less efficient and, at worst, will prevent the master to communicate in a reliable way with the satellites. We can’t ensure that such a configuration can work with our system.
