The RiCool chassis allows up to 16 slots of 220mm boards at a 1.0-inch pitch or 14 slots at a 1.2-inch pitch.  The enclosure can also be used for an optional mix of various slot pitches as well as card guides for either air or conduction-cooled boards. Pixus also offers versions for extra deep 3U OpenVPX boards which are available upon request.

Pixus’ modular power supply options allow a versatile range of up to six voltage output options.  Military grade ruggedised enclosures for 220mm OpenVPX boards and / or SpaceVPX are also available.  Pixus Technologies also has a wide range of chassis options for the standard OpenVPX 160mm depth boards.
