This new configuration helps to ensure fast removal of dissipated heat, yet still maintain a low profile design. It ships with a 6-slot 3U OpenVPX (VITA 65) backplane on 1 in. pitch; it is also available with either a 3U cPCI backplane or a single-width MicroTCA backplane. The unit offers the choice of a fixed mount or plug-in 28 VDC power supply.
Elma’s 1/2 ATR box is ideal for projects with weight restrictions as the unit weighs only 12.5 pounds prior to power supply or payload.
The all-aluminum ATR is made from milled plates as well as punched and formed sheet metal. The main body is dip-brazed for optimum heat conductivity. The conduction-cooled card cage is completely sealed off to keep the electronic components in a clean environment.
A removable front panel allows I/O customization to exact application requirements. Narrow screw spacing ensures high EMC shielding compliant to MIL-STD 461E. The enclosure meets ARINC 404A and ANSI/VITA 48.2 standards.
