New handle-panel sets from Pixus Technologies in VPX, cPCI, VME & custom types
Pixus Technologies now offers handle/panels sets in various styles for embedded computer boards. The handle/panel sets come in 3U, 6U, 9U and custom sizes.
The Pixus handle/panel sets feature IEEE handles often used in CompactPCI, VME64x, and OpenVPX applications. The panels are 4HP for 0.8” boards, 5HP for 1.0” boards, and up to 12HP for power supply unit (PSU) versions and special requirements. 6HP and 8HP are also common sizes. The panels have offset spacing options as required by some of the Eurocard-based specifications. Pixus also offers IEC handle/panel sets for VME and other applications, as well as low-profile handles for telecom and PSU boards.
The injector/ejector handles are ergonomically designed and rugged, with custom color options. They come in hot-swap, non hot swap, EMC, latching, and non-latching options. Also optional are microswitches for live insertion applications. Elecrostatic discharge (ESD) pins are standard to dissipate static charges before complete insertion of the board, PSU, or other device.
Panel customization is optional, including various high-precision milling or stamped cutouts. Silkscreen, painting, and digital printing are also optional.
Pixus Technologies also offers backplanes, chassis, and subrack components to the embedded computing market. This includes VME/64x, OpenVPX, CompactPCI, AdvancedTCA, and other architectures.
