1U cPCI/VME64x 19in chassis is low cost option
Verotec has announced its new 1U desktop or 19in rack mount powered and thermally managed chassis. Complete with a 250W auto-ranging ATX PSU and six separate cooling fans, the unit is fitted with either a 6U 8HP 2-slot cPCI or a 6U 8HP 2-slot VME64x backplane, enabling the same mechanical platform to be used for either of the two most popular bus structures.
Conforming to IEEE1101.10/11, the 300mm deep unit supports 160mm front mounted boards and 80mm deep RTUs. The cPCI backplane is a 64-bit PICMG 2.0 R3.0 compliant unit with a right hand controller slot and the VME64x backplane features active on-board termination and electronic auto bus grant.
Four cooling fans push and pull air across the horizontally mounted front boards from right to left, exhausting the hot air through the side of the chassis; the fifth fan draws air from the RTU area behind the backplane.
The ATX PSU is fitted with its own dedicated cooling fan. An additional advantage is that high strength materials such as 17-4PH CRES steels can be used as well as aluminium.
