New 40G AdvancedTCA Backplane from Pixus
Technologies Boost Density and Bandwidth
Pixus Technologies is offering 40G
AdvancedTCA (ATCA) backplanes in the
six slot and 14-slot sizes. The 40G ATCA
backplanes from Pixus Technologies are
designed to PICMG 3.0 Rev 3.0 specifications. The six slot version features
dual pluggable shelf manager/switch
connections. By combining the shelf
managers and switches, users get a full
six payload slots versus four payload
slots when switches occupy two board
slots. The result is the user gets 50 percent more computing density in addition to a 400 percent increase
of data rates from previous 10G AdvancedTCA shelves.
Pixus Technologies’ 14-slot 40G backplane comes with pluggable PEM (power entry module) options. Slot 0 of the backplane
allows dual shelf managers to be plugged into the chassis without
taking up any of the 14 slots. The 40G ATCA backplanes feature
18-22 layers in FR-4, Nelco4000-13SI, or other laminates. Pixus also
offers 10G ATCA backplanes for both vertical-mount and horizontal-mount shelves.
New DVR Enclosure with Prepackaged
EIC Solutions, Inc. has
expanded its Protector series
line of prepackaged electronic
enclosures with thermoelectric air conditioners. The
prepackaged DVR cooler
cabinet is available in wall or
The steel enclosure
protects electronic gear from environmental hazards, theft and
vandalism. At the same time the integrated cooling unit keeps the
temperature inside the cabinet at safe levels for sensitive electronics and gear. The DVR Cooler also integrates a drop-in DVR rackmount bracket that allows 19-inch rack-mountable DVRs to fit into
a standard wall-mount enclosure.
“To create the Protector series prepackaged line, we selected
popular sizes of enclosures and then integrated each with an
optimally sized cooling unit, sized for peak performance and efficiency,” said Josh Liegel, EIC senior sales engineer.
The wall/pole-mount air conditioned DVR Cooler enclosures
come in four sizes: 24 by 24, 30 by 24, 36 by 30, 48 by 30 inches.
Each size may be used with the 4U DVR rack-mount bracket. Many
more sizes are available in the wall-mount, workstation and rackmount lines.
The EIC enclosures may be fitted with a 200, 400, 800 or 1,500
BTU thermoelectric air conditioner. Thermoelectric cooling units
do not use a compressor, refrigerant or filters, and there are
no moving parts (other than fans) that makes the units virtually
maintenance free. The air conditioning units are mounted to the
enclosures in either flush- or through-mount styles to meet varying installation and application requirements.
The DVR Cooler enclosure is for indoor or outdoor use and is
built to NEMA standards, available in NEMA 4 configurations. The
enclosures are weather tight and feature rugged, powder coated
steel construction. EIC enclosures protect contents from environmental factors such as dust, wind, water, oils, heat, cold and vibra18
tion. Prepackaged units are shipped complete with no assembly
required and may also be equipped with a heater for complete
control over cabinet interior temperatures.
EIC prepackaged electronic enclosures with thermoelectric air
conditioners are available in either 120 V AC or 220 V AC modes
and operate in temperatures of up to 140°F. A variety of options
exist for the DVR Cooler including heating capability, rain shrouds,
digital temperature controllers and tamper resistant packages. The
enclosure may be fitted with mounting feet, “drop-in” rack mount
brackets, insulation or a polycarbonate view window.
Adalet Introduces the Next Generation Stainless
Adalet has made an addition to its
line of explosion proof instrument
housings. The XIHNS next generation
stainless steel, explosion proof instrument housing features an updated
design and various features, options
and approvals. The 316L investment
cast, stainless steel housing is well
suited for rugged or explosion proof
applications where severe corrosion
exists. The contour design provides an updated look for OEM applications housing sensitive instrumentation such as measurement
devices, transmitters, multi-level circuit boards, or wide-angle
readouts and displays.
With a large bored throat opening of 4.0625 inch, the XIHNS
housing offers the largest opening and internal volume in the industry, which can accommodate a wide variety of OEM instruments
and devices. Two solid cover and two glass cover options are available to accommodate various depth instruments. The glass cover
offers a viewing window of 3.31 inches and features a low profile/
tab free retaining ring for maximum instrument clearance.
The instrument housing includes features not available on
other models. A removable, internal mounting pan allows installation of devices. The XIHNS provides an option of up to six
conduit entries. Three ¾ inch NPT conduit entries are standard.
Two cast-on mounting tabs, centered, with an optional third tab
for heavy vibration applications. A generous front boss allows for
optional mounting bracket holes or a larger conduit entry (up to
1 inch NPT). The XIHNS carries global approvals which include UL,
cUL, ATEX and IECEx certifications.
New Enclosure Released by New Age Enclosure
New Age Enclosures has released a sleek enclosure called the
Network Cube. Identified as part
number S-202010, the compact design measures 2.0 inches in length,
2.0 inches in width and 1.0 inches
The term Network Cube was
chosen as its size is a fit with
coaxial plugs, Ethernet interface and as an RF interface node. Internally it accommodates a 1.80 inch wide by 1.80 inch long PCB.
The enclosures are now in stock in white and black RoHS compliant ABS plastic. For customization they may be ordered in custom
colors, in clear polycarbonate, with CNC modifications, and pad
