model4608The Nova Integration Solutions (NIS) Class 4600 Flush Front Crates feature a full portfolio of rackmountable and convection cooled designs from 1U in height to 12U. These chassis reference designs accommodate popular backplane types including 3U and 6U form factors of CompactPCI (cPCI), VME, VME64x, VXS, OpenVPX, or VPX. These enclosures can even support multiple systems by using split or discrete backplanes with a common or dedicated power supply to each “segment.”

Its flush front subrack and rear transition module (RTM) subrack comply with IEEE 1101.1/.10 and /.11, the latter configurable for 3U or 6U x 80mm modules. Subrack support for legacy VME boards (IEEE 1101.1) is available.

Power system options include AC or DC input; internally mounted or PICMG 2.11 plug-in styles; single, dual, triple or quad outputs up to 2kW.

Optional is NOVA’s System Environmental Monitor (SEM) that the user can locally or remotely monitor and control fan speed, temperature, input/output power and user-definable I/O. Both HTTP and SNMP protocols are included in the SEM’s firmware.

Customization is available on all Class 4600 models. Please contact NIS with your unique requirements!
