1U Microchassis Built to Last in Rugged Applications
LOWELL, MA -- Triple E Corporation's new pizzabox-style microchassis addresses inherent problems associated with electronic systems configured for military, aerospace, commercial and industrial harsh environment applications.
Designed for rugged applications, the microchassis meets IEEE1101.10 and IEEE1101.11 mechanical requirements. Configured with VME64X, Cpci or PICMG2.16 backplane, the unit allows for up to two 6U X 1.6mm X 160mm size boards in front, and two 6U X 1.6mm X 80mm direct plug-in rear transition boards. Weighing 10.75 lbs., the unit measures 19-in. rack mount (L-R) X 1.73-in. high X 11.25-in. deep. Construction features 0.036-in. thick zinc plated steel for structural integrity, durable powder coat finish and removable side walls for easy maintenance. Unlike units with plastic card guides, this design features a patented all-extruded aluminum 901 Series card guide cluster providing exceptional stability to protect boards from vibration damage and maximum cooling airflow between slots to guard against heat buildup.
A 3U, 300watt, PICMG 2.11 compliant power supply fits compactly within the 1U rack aperture. The power supply has nominal input of 115-240VAC, operational input of 90-264VAC, output of +5V/30A, +3.3V/40A and +12V/1A with operating temperature range between -5 degrees C to +55 degrees C. Eight (8) 12VDC 11.00 CFM fans via push-pull method provide reliable and efficient cooling. The unit complies with UL, EN and CE safety specifications, and conducted and radiated EN Class B and EN ratings.
Units arrive fully assembled and tested six weeks ARO. Costs for units configured with Cpci backplane start at $1650. For more information contact Triple E Corporation, 60 Foot of Crosby St., Lowell, MA 01852. Tel: (978) 453-0600, Fax: (978) 453-1196, e-mail: info@TripleEase.com, www.TripleEase.com
