Non-sealed, 0.8" pitch, high performance 6U chassis where external air is directly forced over electronic payload modules using rear exhaust fans. This highly efficient thermal management technique is suitable for full PSU wattage applications.
Heat generated within the enclosure is dissipated via forced air convection. An exhaust fan (or air plenum) draws ambient air through the chassis carrying unwanted heat from payload modules. Heat is also conducted through the chassis metalwork to the environment.
The 6U FAC chassis is available in 5, 7, & 12 slot versions ( ½ ATR, ¾ ATR, 1 ATR), supporting VME, cPCI, VPX, VPX-VME & cPCI-VME hybrid backplanes. A total PSU power of up to 1050 watts may be installed. Custom modifications can be designed upon request.
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.
Slots:5 | 7 | 12 0.8"
Open (Ambient Air):≤ 700W
The 6U FAC chassis is suitable for high wattage applications that demand superior cooling capability.
FAC - Chassis Global Thermal Resistance (CGTR) coefficient:
ΔT/W = 0.057°C (½ ATR) | 0.052°C (¾ ATR) | 0.041°C (1 ATR) .
FAC - Chassis Payload Thermal Resistance (CPTR) coefficient:
ΔT/W = 0.075°C (½ ATR) | 0.066°C (¾ ATR) | 0.046°C (1 ATR).
For reliable operation it is recommended the maximum Payload Power not be exceeded. Subject to operating conditions.
All CM 6U ATR chassis are delivered tested, qualified and certified per Military Standards MIL-STD-461E & MIL-STD-810F.
CM 6U FAC military backplanes are available in VPX, VMEbus, cPCI, or combinations of VPX-VME64 or cPCI-VME64 hybrids, providing standard bus slot and signal daisy-chain functionalities. Designed to improve card-cage mechanical performance with 0.8 inch pitch slots & implement many features.
All 6U backplanes install specific TTL logic circuitry for driving up to 8 front panel user LED indicators. Units fitted with a Temperature Supervisory Unit will also drive an additional panel LED TEMP (over/under temperature indicator).
All FAC 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 but not activated by default.
CM 6U military backplanes allow unlimited pin I/O wiring capability. Flexible top & bottom wiring integration is facilitated by a standard 25mm bottom cavity clearance to avoid requiring a custom backplane.
Final slots in 12 & 7 slot chassis allow for bus functionality & contain power/control provisions to accept a eurocard-size metallically caged Redundant PSU. A single slot RPSU up to 575W operates in parallel with main PSU on a load-sharing basis to minimize component stress.
Custom backplanes maybe designed upon customer request.
CM backplanes support one or two 100W power sockets for optional micro-size DC/DC military converters with user defined output voltage. The converters are useful for increasing the +5VDC or +3.3VDC power lines or for generating isolated positive, negative or bipolar auxiliary DC voltages.
Class 1 military power input connectors offer reliable shock & vibration interconnectivity between chassis internal modules and allows high DC current rates with low voltage drops & minimum contact heating.
6U backplanes are supplied with military conformal coating. Printed circuits boards are partially coated per MIL-I-4658C in areas in which do no affect VPX, VME, cPCI, or I/O connectors.
All 6U models integrate similar backplane electronics for easy switch-overs, retrofits or replacement parts.
6U FAC 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 1050 Watts. Available in different versions to suit input voltage requirments.
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 6U models. PSUs are custom made to match the enclosure mechanics.
200VAC 3-Phase PSU versions 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 (+).
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.
6U FAC PSUs incorporate isolated DC/DC converters & oversized hold-up capacitors to ensure proper operation during short power line failures. Outputs are protected against short-circuit, thermal-shutdown etc.
in FAC models is attached to the chassis rear panel to provide both conduction & convection cooling.
Forced air drawn through the chassis is exhausted, dissipating the majority of heat generated.
