Elma Updates 5U Chassis

FREMONT, Calif. -- Elma Electronic Inc., a global manufacturer of electronic packaging products, has upgraded its 5U AdvancedTCA Chassis with full redundancy, giving the unit high availability features in a compact horizontal format. The system platform offers dual redundant fan trays, shelf managers, and A/C power supply options.

The 2nd Gen 5U AdvancedTCA Chassis features side-to-side cooling via plug-in fan trays with dual 170 CFM fans with PWM (pulse width modulation) control. The redundant push/pull configurations of the fans offer higher levels of reliability. The fans reach the back of the chassis for cooling the rear I/O slots. The 5U chassis offers dual 1200W AC power supplies and dual shelf managers, which are all front pluggable above the card cage. DC power versions are also available.

The 5U ATCA Chassis is a 19” rackmount unit with rugged steel construction. The system platform features a 2nd generation shelf manager with bussed or quasi-radial IPMB (Intelligent Platform Management Bus) routing. A unique 5-slot ATCA backplane provides specially placed connectors for pluggability. Full Mesh, Replicated Mesh, and Dual Star topologies can be implemented on the same backplane. The backplane utilizes the common AMC connector for plugging to Elma’s 2nd Gen Shelf Manager. A 6-slot backplane is also optional in certain configurations.
