One Stop Systems Introduces Economy 6U 8-slot Horizontal CompactPCI Enclosure

3/20/2003 - One Stop Systems announces the introduction of its new economy CompactPCI enclosure. The 4U high rackmount enclosure provides a rugged CompactPCI platform for applications that require up to eight slots but don’t need the redundancy of larger enclosures. The economy enclosure is also shorter than other enclosures, allowing easier cable routing to the rear of the enclosure in racks with limited space. Ample storage space is provided by two 5.25-inch front access drive bays and the internal 3.5-inch drive bay.

A number of versions of the backplane can be installed including versions with the H.110 telephony bus or the 2.16 Ethernet bus. Two card cage fans and three intake fans provide superior cooling with front-to-rear airflow. The 350-watt ATX-style power supply also contains its own fan. The 4U high enclosure supports rear I/O on all slots, allowing all cabling to be routed through the rear of the enclosure, permitting easy servicing of front boards. The 4U high enclosure is constructed of steel with rackmount ears for mounting in a 19” rack.

“One Stop Systems is constantly developing new platforms to meet the varied demands of system designers,” said Steve Cooper, president and CEO. “This new economy chassis meet two of them by providing a lower price point on a rugged CompactPCI enclosure and offering a full eight slots with rear I/O in a shorter form factor. This is an ideal chassis for many applications that require the serviceability of CompactPCI but don’t need redundant power supplies.”

The 6U “short” horizontal enclosure lists for $1,495 (with an 8-slot CompactPCI backplane) and is available immediately.

The enclosure can be equipped with a 6U backplane with up to eight slots wide. Various configurations can include a 5-, 6-, or 8-slot cPCI backplane with or optionally equipped with an H.110 telephony bus or the 2.16 Ethernet bus. All power taps are on the rear of the backplane.

Additional Storage
The 4U enclosure can be optionally equipped with One Stop Systems’ hot swappable drive canisters providing two or four 3.5 inch drives. When equipped with two drive canisters, the card cage can accommodate up to a 6-slot backplane. With the four-drive module, up to a 5-slot backplane can be used. The canisters are individually hot swappable with their own SCA backplane. The 4-drive module lists for $677 and the 2-drive module for $491 each.
