WATERLOO, Ontario – Pixus Technologies in Waterloo, Ontario, is introducing the ATRD058HEX-3U low-cost demonstration and development air transport rack (ATR) for conduction-cooled 3U or 6U OpenVPXembedded computing systems.
The enclosure includes rear fans for supplemental cooling of high-power cards, and features a 6-slot 3U OpenVPX backplane to 8-gigabit-per-second PCI Express Gen3 speeds.
The enclosure includes a VITA 62 power supply slot. Other backplane slot sizes and various VITA 65 profiles are available. The development unit is slightly wider than a short half ATR.
The conduction-cooled ATR has heat-exchange features that include internal long fins to expel heat conductively. To provide more heat dissipation, dual rear fans pull air over the fins from a slotted outer shell.
The chassis is sealed, but provides enhanced cooling. The enclosure cools a minimum of 375 Watts in the 3U OpenVPX ATR format with options for a 6U version. Implementations providing as much as 600 Watts can be customized with additional thermal management provisions.
