AVIONICS MISSION COMPUTER
|Product:||5-Slot CPCI System|
|Application:||Data Acquisition System|
This application is deployed on a civil unmanned aerial vehicle to collect geographical information. As the system is located at the outside of the aircraft, the chassis needs to be completely closed and compliant to IP65. A conduction cooled chassis was selected for the solution. Weight restrictions drove a sophisticated mechanical design for the conduction cooling system.
In order to get the required processing power in conduction cooled assemblies, the PICMG standard CompactPCI was chosen for the system architecture. The project was completed in a close cooperation with the system integrator EMCOMO.
CONDUCTION COOLED IP 67
|Product:||Conduction Cooled chassis|
Today even construction site equipment requires high performance electronics. In this case the system is located at the bottom of an excavator, where the chassis could be submerged underwater for periods of time. This drove a requirement for IP67, which means that it might be under water for at least 30 minutes. A conduction cooled chassis for this application was mandatory.
A Flotherm analyze simulated the heat dissipation and indicated the cooling performance. Since this is a proprietary solution, special clamshells were developed to get a sufficient heat transfer from the inserted boards to the chassis. The backplane design is made according to customers requirements. .
10-SLOT MTCA SYSTEM FOR SINGLE FULL-SIZE MODULES
|Product:||MTCA.0 System with integrated TFT|
This system was designed in cooperation with partner companys NAT and Lindenbaum. Based on the MTCA.0 Standard and offering scalability, this solution gives the end user the chance to extend capacity and even the functionality of the system. The application may start with 500 to 1000 ports for pure Audio conferencing and can be upgraded up to 20.000 ports. Usually the AMC modules are plugged in from the front, but Lindenbaum required a TFT display to monitor the status of the system located on the front side of the chassis. As a result, the system was turned around and the 19" brackets were moved to the rear side with the AMC modules plugged in the rear.
SYSTEM BASED ON A SUBRACK (COTS) FOR HARSH ENVIRONMENTS
|Product:||Rugged System VME64x|
|Industry:||Security and defense|
|Application:||Mobile radar control system|
This system has been specifically developed for mobile radar system requirements. The requirement for high shock and vibration resistance is met due to the use of our robust EuropacPro subracks. The enclosure consists of a 3mm thick plate and meets the requirement for MIL-STD 710F and MIL-STD 167. The different interfaces require a board cage with a 12-slot VME64x backplane and an RTM. Specific EMC shielding according to MIL-STD 461 ensures seamless system function. The system can be integrated into the corresponding MIL cabinets due to the optional front-to-back cooling.
2 Slots WITH Front-to-Back ATCA Systems for 450-WATT Blades
|Product:||2-Slot ATCA 450/40|
Applications in telecommunications require systems that guarantee high availability and a high data rate. Effective and reliable cooling is an important factor. nVent integrates front-to-back cooling to use the cold air in the cabinets in the front area and is thus able to achieve effective ventilation. The use of special fans that provide a very high air pressure and a sophisticated airflow in the chassis makes this possible.
RUGGEDIZED AND CONDUCTION COOLED MTCA SYSTEM
|Product::||Conduction-cooled MTCA system|
|Industry:||Security and defense|
|Application:||Satellite communication for vehicles in disaster areas|
The system is used in disaster areas to establish a mobile communication system. In such a grueling environment, the system is exposed to extreme contamination levels and temperature fluctuations and meeting requirements in accordance with IP65 is mandatory. In addition, the seamless function of the system must be ensured so that the communication of high data rates do not stand in the way.
PROPRIETARY TEST SYSTEM BASED ON IEEE STANDARD
|Product:||Proprietary system based on 6U boards|
|Industry:||Test and measurement|
|Application:||Network test system|
The system was developed for testing and verifying high-speed network elements and is used as a standalone system. This requires a touchscreen as an input and output unit. The unit and the controller board is integrated by nVent. The backplane with CompactPCI connectors enables versatile system configurations. The exchangeable fan unit ensures adequate cooling. The enclosure from the RatiopacPRO family offers many design options. Through simple modifications, nVent developed a one-of-a-kind customer solution from standard components.
