Pixus Technologies has announced a new option for its 1U high OpenVPX, CompactPCI and VME64x enclosures for power and monitoring.
The 1U chassis supports various configurations of 3U/6U OpenVPX, or 6U CompactPCI or VME64x backplanes.The enclosure provides dual, non-redundant AC inputs with 12 V power which can be converted to 5 V and 3.3 V as well. A chassis monitor is located in the rear of the chassis to report the status of the voltages, fans and temperature. The data is accessible via a USB interface and the unit sets one of three relays if an event occurs.
The Pixus 1U chassis supports rear transition modules and various backplane configurations. Card guides for conduction-cooled boards are available. Pixus offers backplane/chassis systems in commercial, development and MIL rugged formats. The company also provides IEEE and Eurocard components for the embedded computer market.
