6U VPX Load Board

Elma Bustronic Corporation (Fremont, CA) has introduced a new 6U VPX Load Board that helps confirm the chassis meets the VITA 46/48 power specifications for VPX and aids in locating hot spots within the enclosure. The 6U VPX load card features a microcontroller-based stepped load control to 100W maximum. Go-No-Go indicators are present for 3.3V, 5V, 12V, +12V_Aux, -12V_Aux and 3.3V_Aux. The rotary switch selects the voltage setting while pushing the ON switch will cycle between different power levels shown on the LED display. The set load power levels are saved in EEPROM. Other features include a power reset button (to minimum level) and a SYSRESET signal on the two test point outputs.

Forced Air-Cooled Enclosure

Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) (Middleton, WI) is now shipping the XPand4200, a sub-1⁄2 ATR, forced air-cooled enclosure for conduction-cooled modules. The system measures 4.88" (W) × 6.0" (H) × 13.5" (D) and weighs 8.8 pounds. The XPand4200 has an optional removable memory module attachment that supports the XPort6191 Solid State Disk (SSD) removable storage module, with 64 GB of storage capacity. With the memory module attachment the height increases to 7.62" and the weight to 11.1 pounds. Up to six conduction-cooled, 0.8" pitch 3U VPX, 3U cPCI, or power supply modules can be configured into the XPand4200. Additionally, the XPand4200 can be configured to meet custom I/O requirements with conduction-cooled PMC / XMC modules available from X-ES or third parties.

Two-Slot OpenVPX Development Platform

Elma Electronic Systems Division (Fremont, CA) has released a new two-slot VPX/OpenVPX test and development platform that accommodates both 3U and 6U boards via a shelf divider. The new E-Frame Series enables developers to power up one or more VPX blades under test and interconnect the J1 fabric connections to emulate the user’s application. The use of a standard VPX RTM (rear transition module) plugged into the back provides access to the J0, J2, J3, J4, J5 and J6 connectors, while simultaneously accessing high-speed signals in the J1 connector, routed out the side of the backplane. Each slot’s J1 “A” channel is broken out into 16 SMA connectors and the “B”, “C” and “D” channels into four SATA2 cable headers (12 total per slot).

IPv4/IPv6 Gigabit Ethernet Switch

The new Kontron (Poway, CA) Gigabit Ethernet Switch VX3910 offers 3U VPX (VITA 46.x) and OpenVPX™ (VITA 65) platforms enterprise-class switching functionality with a total of 28 Gigabit Ethernet ports and advanced management features. The non-blocking fully managed L2/L3 Gigabit switch, Kontron VX3910, with its 20x Gigabit ports to the backplane, offers the highest port density for the implementation of various network topologies in 3U appliances. Four additional 2.5-Gigabit ports to the backplane simplify a redundant system architecture with multiple switches with no single point of failure. The four 1000 Base-T uplinks on the front panel, one dedicated for out-of-band management, expand the range to a total of 28 ports. The new Kontron Gigabit Ethernet Switch VX3910 is available in an air-cooled version for ambient temperatures from 0°C to +55°C and in a rugged conduction-cooled version for the extended temperature range from -40°C to + 85°C.

EPOCH 600

Olympus NDT, Waltham, MA, has introduced the EPOCH 600 digital ultrasonic flaw detector, a portable instrument that enables several methods of storing, archiving, and reporting inspection and calibration data. It features onboard memory up to 50,000 individual waveform files, plus an additional 2 GBs of removable memory. Users can adjust parameters with a knob or with a navigation area on the keypad. Key standard flaw detection features include 400V PerfectSquare™ tunable square-wave pulser, digital filtering for enhanced signal-to-noise ratio, single-shot measurements at up to 2,000 Hz PRF, and Echo-to-Echo measurements with gate tracking. A color transflective VGA display and digital high-dynamic-range receiver provide A-scan representation in both low light and bright sunlight. The navigation pad configuration with sealed case meets IP67 requirements for wet or dusty conditions; the knob configuration meets IP66 requirements. It features a battery life of 12 to 13 hours, enabling use in remote and limited-access inspection locations.

Fuse and Fuseholder

Schurter (Santa Rosa, CA) has introduced the ASO series fuse and FSO series fuseholder, both designed to protect DC applications from low short circuits and overvoltage conditions in systems upwards of 1000 VDC. They are intended for use in grid or off-grid solar strings, inverters, battery chargers, and combiner boxes. The ASO fuse has a quick-acting characteristic according to UL 248-14. It is a standard midget size at 10.3mm ×38mm. Current ratings range from 1 to 30A with a breaking capacity of 20kA and operating temperature of -40°C to +85°C. The fuseholder mounts in a standard 35mm DIN Rail. A pressure plate connection accepts 8-14 AWG stranded wires or 10-14 AWG solid wires. Units can be ordered in 1-, 2- or 3-poles.
