ICP Electronics Australia has released the RACK-8000, a 4U 20-slot 19" rackmount server chassis. This chassis has been designed for server and CTI applications that require long-term online operation and would benefit for multi-redundancy.
The RACK-8000 supports a 20-slot backplane for full sized single board computers (SBCs). This chassis supports ICP's range of high-end SBCs with dual 1GHz processors and fast I/O interfaces for applications such as CAD/CAM servers, telecommunications and EC/CRM servers.
It provides up to triple redundant power supply capacity. The standard version is equipped with a 700W or 350W+350W ATX redundant hot-swappable power supplies, with power factor correction, and can be upgraded to three power supplies for N+1 power redundancy applications.
The chassis has been designed to support four hot-swappable Ultra-160 SCA 3.5" drive bays for 1" high, 80-pin SCA SCSI drives. The RACK features a SAF-TE SCA backplane with a Qlogic GEM345 enclosure management controller inside.
This controller enhances the application of RAID 5 by providing power, bus termination and configuration setting functions. The front side of the chassis features LED indicators to show the status of the SCA backplane and the hard disk drives.
In addition, the RACK-8000 has four redundant, hot-swappable system cooling fans with audible LED alarms, tachometer reading and an overheating monitor that will speed up the fans if required. ICP Electronics 02 9457 6011.
