Pixus develops 4U OpenVPX chassis
Embedded computing and enclosure manufacturer, Pixus Technologies, now offers a 4U OpenVPX chassis platform that features multiple segments for the backplane slots and power supplies. The configuration provides the ability to have replicated redundancy in one chassis platform as well as red/black segmentation, explains the company.
The 4U OpenVPX segmented chassis has three pluggable PSU slots and three power and ground backplanes in the 19-inch rackmount/desktop enclosure. Single or dual AC feeds are available.
The chassis has a bottom-to-top airflow configuration, with 1U for the fan/intake area and space for 3U boards. Pixus offers OpenVPX chassis, cPCI Serial, MicroTCA, and AdvancedTCA chassis in multiple airflow configurations.
Pixus Technologies was founded in 2009 by senior management from Kaparel Corporation, a Rittal company. Pixus Technologies’ embedded backplanes and systems are focused primarily on ATCA, OpenVPX, MicroTCA, and custom designs. It also offers VME-based and cPCI-based solutions. In May 2011, Pixus Technologies became the sole authorized North and South American supplier of the electronic packaging products previously offered by Kaparel Corporation and Rittal.
