Horizontally cooled housings
07 July 2008
With integrated power supply and climate control features, the 19-inch rack mounted horizontally cooled housings for CompactPCI or VME systems from Rittal, called Slim-Box Vario, are designed for small electronic enclosures.
These housings are 300mm deep and designed for the installation of cPCI, cPCI Express or VME64x boards in 3U or 6U format and optional rear I/O boards. The housings contain a VME64x or cPCI backplane, which can be monolithic with integral power connection for hot-swap applications.
To accompany the horizontal arrangement of the boards, DC fans in the left panel provide optimum ventilation for the housing, via a slide-in fan unit with air filter and 12V DC fans. The fan unit and filter mat can be removed for service and cleaning. With fans to the left and memory to the right, Slim-Box Vario has been designed for a slim CD-ROM drive and a 3.5in HDD.
Power is supplied either by an ATX power supply or as a hot-swappable plug-in power supply. Accessories include guide rails, monitoring components and front panels. Housings can also be customised using standard components.
