LONDONDERRY, N.H., 27 April 2009. Verotec released a new 1U desktop or 19-inch rack mount powered and thermally-managed chassis – complete with a 250-watt auto-ranging ATX PSU and six separate cooling fans.

The unit is fitted with either a 6U 8HP 2 Slot CompactPCI 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 300-millimeter deep unit supports 160-millimeter front mounted boards and 80-millimeter deep RTUs. The CompactPCI 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 also is fitted with its own dedicated cooling fan.

The chassis is suitable for development and production uses – the easily removable top cover gives good access for testing and development and the robust construction is rigid and strong, Verotec officials say. All internal surfaces feature a conductive finish and finger gaskets ensure ground continuity between all components, providing a reliable EMC environment.
