Fremont, Calif. Elma Electronic Inc. expands its Type 39C HA chassis line with the Type 39 2U EasyPlug CompactPCI enclosures.
The Type 39c HA line features 9U cPCI backplanes that include pluggable 47-pin connectors for hot-swapping power supplies. There are also pluggable fan tray headers and optional shelf management modules. Redundancy options can be built-in with all of these components. The backplanes are available in standard cPCI, H.110, or PICMG 2.16 options.
With a sheet metal design and full pluggability, the Type 39c HA family offers ease of manufacturing. The enclosures are available in 1U to 4U heights in horizontal-mounting orientations. Compliant to the latest PICMG specifications and IEEE 1101.10/. 11, the enclosures feature side-to-side 200 CFM (300 LFM) cooling, 300-mm depths, and rear I/O options. Customization is available.
Shelf management is an important part of the HA systems. Elma offers an IPMI-based (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) shelf manager option, and for increased redundancy on the backplanes, a Dual Star design can be implemented on the PICMG 2.16 configurations.
Pricing for the Type 39 HA family starts at less than $700.00 depending on configurations and options with a four to six week lead time.
