WATERLOO, Ontario – Pixus Technologies in Waterloo, Ontario, is introducing the SHM200 chassis-management module for OpenVPX embedded computing systems that complies with the VITA 46.11 specification for system management.
The SHM200 comes in 0.8- or 1-inch pitch sizes, and can plug into a standard 3U VPX backplane slot, with versions with just the P-zero connector or the P-zero and P-one connectors for access to extended I/O.
Users also can connect a 6U panel to plug into a 6U slot. The standard panel interface has RS-232, RJ-45, USB, and LEDs.
Monitoring of at least six temperature sensors and 10 fans is available on the SHM200 with custom options available. There is fan PWM/Tach control, along with 16 digital inputs and outputs. A Level-2 unmanaged 3- port Ethernet hub also is an option.
The Pixus SHM200 embedded computing solution also includes a web interface to remotely query the system. Users can import images of their boards. By clicking on the image for each slot, the user can drill down to the monitored status of the module.
