3U ATR SEF-HP Description

Sealed, 1" pitch, dry-air 3U chassis that incorporates extended cooling fins, 18 super conducting heat pipes & air re-circulation fans inside. This Zero maintenance ATR is ideal for medium wattage applications where ambient air is laden with contaminants.

CM-ATR-3U/SEF-HP

Heat generated within the enclosure is dissipated by a combination of conduction, radiation and free-air convection through the chassis metalwork & double wall extended fins to the ambient environment. 18 integrated heat pipes provide fast passage for heat to exit the internal card-cage. Internal air recirculation fans ensure constant airflow across payloadmodules.

CM-ATR-3U/SEF-18HP

The 3U SEF-18HP chassis is available in a 5 slot version only (½ ATR), supporting VME, cPCI & VPX backplanes. A total PSU power of up to 825 watts may be installed. Custom modifications can be designed upon customer request.

CM-ATR-3U/SEF-HP Layout

Internal layout is divided into 3 independent metallic partitions. I/O section at the front, card-cage in the middle & PSU section at the rear. This improves EMI/EMC performance & reduces PSU noise on system electronics.

Attention to I/O flexibility and easy board integration; allowing the intermixing of wedgelock IEEE P1101.2 conduction cooled boards, IEC-297 air cooled modules, Compact PCI 1101.1/IEC/118/ CD and VPX VITA 46.0/.1/.10/.3/.4/.7 air cooled boards.

The 3U SEF-18HP chassis is suitable for medium wattage sealed applications that demand high passive cooling capabilities. This silent, fanless model is competitive vs forced air ATRs & ideal for submarine, proximity to operator, deploy & forget applications.

SEF-HP - Chassis Global Thermal Resistance (CGTR) coefficient:
ΔT/W = 0.214°C (½ ATR).

For reliable operation it is recommended the maximum Payload Power not be exceeded. Subject to operating conditions. All CM 3U ATR chassis are delivered tested, qualified and certified per Military Standards MIL-STD-461E & MIL-STD-810F.

3U Backplanes

CM 3U backplanes are low noise, full military VMEbus, VPX, cPCI or cPCI-S compatible and provide fully standard bus slot & signal daisy-chain functionalities. Bus slots are tailored for 1 inch pitch standard & deliver full compatibility with 0.8 inch pitch 3U modules.

CM-ATR-3U/ - Backplanes

CM 3U enclosures incorporate a versatile universal ‘MCS’ slot mixed card-cage that accepts all off-the-shelf Conduction Cooled and Air Cooled 3U modules.

An alternative ‘CCS’ conduction cooled card-cage is available for conduction-cooled boards only, whereby improving thermal performance.

All 3U backplanes install specific TTL logic circuitry for driving up to 8 front panel user LED indicators.

All 3U backplanes integrate a Temperature Supervisory Unit (TSU) with panel LED (over/under temperature) that controls Power Supply & Fan operation. Remote optoisolated control switches for ‘Battle-short’ & chassis PSU ‘on/standby’ are fitted as standard.

CM-ATR-3U/ - Backplanes
  • VME64x backplanes conduction-cooled IEEE-1101.2 & air-cooled IEC-297/IEEE.1101.1 modules.
  • VPX backplanes conform to VITA 46.0/.1/.10/.3/.4/.7.
  • Compact PCI backplanes according to IEC 1076 / PCI 1101.10/IEC 48D/118/CD standards.
  • Compact PCI Serial backplanes according to PICMG CPCI-S.0 R2.0 2015 / IEEE 1101 standards.

CM 3U military backplanes allow unlimited pin I/O wiring capability. Flexible top & bottom wiring integration is facilitated by a standard 25mm bottom cavity clearance.

Class 1 military power input connectors fitted on the backplane offer shock & vibration reliability interconnectivity between chassis internal modules & allows high DC current rates with low voltage drops and minimum contact heating.

CM-ATR-3U/ - Backplanes

3U backplanes are supplied with military conformal coating. Printed circuits boards are partially coated per MIL-I-4658C. This is carried out only in areas in which coating the product does not affect VPX, VME, cPCI or I/O connectors.

All 3U models integrate the same backplane electronics for easy switch-overs, retrofits or replacement parts.

3U SEF-18HP Power Supplies

3U SEF-18HP chassis PSUs support a wide variety of AC/DC input voltages (MIL-STD-704 & MIL-STD-1275) and customer defined DC power output combinations up to 575 Watts. Available in 3 different versions (A-B-C) to suit the demand per DC Line of standard COTS open busses.

CM-PS-3U/SEF-18HP

All PSU models are fitted with Power Fail Monitor, remote voltage sensing, output voltage trim-up, time-delayed protection fuses, rear fan fuse and DC/DC converter remote shutdown.

To comply with MIL-STD-461E, a high capacity integrated EMI/EMC input voltage filter is fitted as standard on all 3U models. All models integrate the same PSU and backplane electronics.

Single-phase AC PSUs are fitted with a VICOR military Filter and Autoranging Rectifier Module (FARM) to provided EMI filtering, autoranging line rectification and inrush current limiting to meet MIL-STD-461E category A1b specifications for Electromagnetic Compatibility.

3U SEF-18HP Power Supply Unit

200VAC 3-Phase PSU versions additionally incorporate AC/DC rectifier stage prior to the VICOR FIAM front-end modules.

DC PSUs are equipped with a VICOR military Filter and Attenuator Module (FIAM). This front-end device is fitted prior to the DC/DC converters to provide EMI filtering, inrush current limiting and transient protection.

Front-end FIAM modules are protected against DC reverse polarity. An optional reverse polarity diode may be fitted in series with power connector input pin IN (+).

3U SEF-18HP PSUs incorporate isolated DC/DC converters and oversized hold-up capacitors to ensure proper operation during short power line failures. Outputs are protected against short-circuit, thermal-shutdown etc. PSUs are custom made to match the enclosure mechanics.

3U SEF-18HP Power Supply Unit

The PSU in SEF-18HP models is attached to a heat exhanger panel that provides both conduction and convection cooling. Internal air recirculation dissipates heat generated by the PSU through its panel via thermal conduction to the chassis frame.

Forced air that is drawn through the heat exchangers, passing over the PSU panel external fins & exhausted, removing the majority of heat.
