Elma Introduces Type 39 2U EasyPlug CompactPCI Chassis

Elma Electronic Inc., a global manufacturer of electronic packaging products, announced a new Type 39 2U EasyPlug CompactPCI enclosures. The Type 39c HA line features 9U cPCI backplanes from Elma Bustronic that include pluggable 47-pin connectors for hot-swapping power supplies. There are also pluggable fan tray headers and optional shelf management modules. Redundancy options can be built-in with all of these components. The backplanes are available in standard cPCI, H.110, or PICMG 2.16 options.

With a sheet metal design and full pluggability, the Type 39c HA family offers ease of manufacturing and saves costs. The chassis are available in 1U-4U heights in horizontal-mounting orientations. Compliant to the latest PICMG specifications and IEEE 1101.10/. 11, the enclosures feature side-to-side 200CFM (300LFM) cooling, 300mm depths, and rear I/O options. Elma specializes in quick and affordable customization of their chassis offerings.

Shelf management is an important part of HA systems. Elma offers an IPMI-based (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) shelf manager option. For increased redundancy on the backplanes, a Dual Star design can be implemented on the PICMG 2.16 configurations.

Elma’s Type 39 HA family has a 4-6 week lead-time.
