Metromatics presents DataMetrics’ new COTS Chassis Model 7008 – an 8U, 21 slot VME 64x chassis in a rugged housing. The COTS Chassis Model 7008 has several unique features that distinguish itself from the competition. This rack mount or table top configurable 8U chassis has a unique front air inlet feature that allows access to the field replaceable fan tray for sub-2 minute replacement or maintenance.
This model also provides front access to all 21ea 6U backplane slots and up to 15ea 6U rear transition modules. The chassis accommodates 3U and 6U x 160mm or 220mm plug-in boards and 6U x 80mm rear transition modules (100mm or 120mm support can be ordered). Backplane architectures such as VME, VME 64X, VITA 31, VITA 41, VITA 46, CompactPCI 2.1 and 2.16 are available. DataMetrics will also design customer-specific architectures.
The power supply used is fully configurable to meet all output voltages and current requirements and provides optional voltage margining for circuit development and system characterisation. A programmable environmental monitor (Envirostat 2.0) and front panel alpha-numeric display is available with both local port and Ethernet remote access to ensure proper operating conditions.
The COTS Chassis Model 7008 is fully operational with the following:
- shock up to 1G
- random vibration 0.5G for 10-2000Hz
- sinusoidal vibration 0.5g for 10-500Hz
