Chassis platform comes with 9 or 16-slot OpenVPX 6U backplanes
PIXUS TECHNOLOGIES RiCool OpenVPX chassis platform line includes chassis configurations for 9-slot and 16-slot OpenVPX backplanes, which come in the 6U height. Units provide powerful and reliable cooling for high-CFM requirements. The front-to-rear cooled 9U tall enclosure pulls air from an intake area below the card cage and blows the heat 90 degrees out the rear. Dual fans are hot swappable and provide up to 191 CFM each of cooling. In a full 16-slot OpenVPX system (at 1.0” pitch), this translates to 125W/slot. When the height of the chassis is increased by 1U, it can cool up to 250W/slot or 4000 watts.
