Cube squares up to MicroTCA
08 May 2008
Rittal adds an MTCA Cube to its MicroTCA range.
The rugged Cube allows for systems to be created that are physically small yet which preserve compatability with the AdvancedMC spcecification.
It offers an efficient architecture, capable of handling up to six AMCs and an MCH (MicroTCA carrier hub), as well as the resources to power, cool and support them.
The stainless steel compact, standalone cube measures only 307mm x 118mm x 285mm. An advantage over larger shelf-level MicroTCA architectures or Advanced TCA shelves is the inherent efficiencies, claims the company and the fact that it provides accommodation more rugged than existing telecoms-based Mcro-TCA structures. Additionally, its size makes it particularly suitable for smaller systems such as those found on machinery and in control gear.
The MTCA Cube conforms to MicroTCA.0R1.0 specification and is supplied with backplane and 250W AC/DC power pack. A range of accessories enables mounting onto DIN rails, walls, mounting plates or even directly onto a machine or industrial control system.
