Asis North America announced its Effective Series AdvancedTCA chassis, available in AC or DC versions and two-, five- and 14-slot configurations. Effective Series 2 and 5-slot versions are available with removable top cover making them an ideal development platform. Its cooling system implements a pressurized-only cooling method and uses the latest fan and airflow technologies. The system has been verified to meet more than the 200W per slot requirement, while maintaining the NEBS requirement for noise reduction. The Effective Series offers users a choice for shelf management. The Shelf Manager Pro is a fully featured shelf manager and is based on Pigeon Point software. For cost-sensitive applications, Asis North America's proprietary basic Shelf Manager provides management and control of the fans only. The basic Shelf Manager is suited for prototype and development applications as well as enterprise networks that don't need the advanced features of the Pigeon Point system. The shelf's backplane design reduces the number of layers while meeting the AdvancedTCA performance standards. Additional features include Intelligent Power management and redundant power and shelf managers. The NEBS-ready RoHS compliant Effective Series chassis start at $1,000.
