5-slot OpenVPX rackmount chassis delivers conduction-cooled card guides
PIXUS TECHNOLOGIES RiCool OpenVPX chassis platform provides conduction-cooled card guides to allow testing and development of rugged 3U OpenVPX boards. Solution allows a mix-and-match configuration of air-cooled and conduction-cooled modules. Platform comes with a 5-slot OpenVPX backplane to the BKP3-DIS05-15.2.13 profile. Chassis fits up to 16 front and RTM (rear transition module) slots at a 1.0” pitch. Chassis provides powerful cooling in a front-to-rear format, with the fans directly above the card guides. Format also prevents blockage of airflow from the RTM cards.
