Curtiss-Wright Controls introduces the Cool-CC3 3U VPX conduction-cooled chassis

ASHBURN, Va. 12 June 2012. Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions (CWCDS), a business group of Curtiss-Wright Controls, has introduced the COOL-CC3, a new 6-slot high power chassis designed to help with the design of 3U OpenVPX systems. The newest member of CWCDS' Engineered Packaging group's Hybricon family of chassis, this forced air, conduction-cooled enclosure supports up to 6-slots of 3U 1" pitch payload OpenVPX conduction cooled cards and rear transition modules. Designed to satisfy extreme cooling requirements, such as those involved in aerospace applications or military embedded systems, the portable COOL-CC3 chassis meets ANSI/VITA 65 power and cooling requirements for conduction-cooled 75W 3U OpenVPX modules.


The Hybricon portable tower conduction-cooled enclosures are high performance development chassis with cooling for up to 150W per slot. These enclosures support 3U and 6U backplanes and are designed to the latest ANSI/VITA specifications.

The COOL-CC3 chassis is a vertical tower style chassis that supports 3U backplanes [OpenVPX (1" pitch), VPX, VPX-REDI] and provides OpenVPX compliant power and cooling. The enclosure has a carrying handle for portability, and an automatic fan speed control. The fans and cooling design provide a less than 55C chassis conduction rail temperature at 30C per ANSI/VITA 65 OpenVPX standard

The new COOL-CC3 (and its 6U variant, the COOL-CC6) complement CWCDS's air-cooled COOL-XC3 and COOL-XC6 development chassis, offering portable development chassis alternatives for higher power conduction-cooled module-based systems. The COOL-CC3 is designed to enable the integration and development of OpenVPX, VPX REDI and VPX systems and supports the latest ANSI/VITA 46.0, ANSI/VITA 46.10, ANSI/VITA 48.0, ANSI/VITA 48.2 and ANSI/ VITA 65 OpenVPX specifications.
