Conduction Cooled ATR Enclosures for Harsh Environments
Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions announced its 717 series of air-over conduction-cooled air transport rack (ATR) enclosures for harsh environments in both air- and land-based military applications that provide cooling through the use of advanced external fans. Placed over strategically placed cooling fins along the conducting cold walls, the fan channels ambient air down the enclosure’s outside surfaces, providing increased cooling. This method keeps the channeled air outside of the ATR, allowing the cards within to remain in a sealed environment that is protected from the elements. The series’ card cage is offered in both 3U and 6U × 160 mm configurations. The backplane supports all VME (VITA) and CPCI (PICMG) versions and custom configurations.
